When we left the shower, everyone received a photo of the couple engraved with their names. I had never, and will probably never, meet the spouse. It was nice to see a picture of who my friend's daughter was marrying.
He was from Korea. The couple will be married in Korea. The bride to be had just come home for a few days before her wedding. We collected gifts of money, which she could convert to Korean money, and buy the things they will need after the wedding.
