My daughter is turning 13 and doesn't know If she should open gifts in front of people she has been dwelling on the pros and cons for days. Any advice?

I don't see why she shouldn't. It would probably be the polite thing to do - why not set aside some time to do it and thank the guests at the time?

There are no rules regarding it so it's what she feels comfortable with. If they are having fun and time is going fast then she can open them later. If the other girls can't wait for her to open their present then she can open them when they are there.
I suggest she stops stressing about such a small thing and see what happens on the day.
