but people want to celebrate your wedding and get you stuff so you are going to need to get over it!
most of the gifts i got were fantastic...cute lingerie, gift certificate to spas, but i have to admit maybe i should have given people guidance...like i do not need the gigantic book of pictures taken of naked men is "artistic" poses.

Like I said, if its something you think I should have or want me to have, then great! I just hate telling people what they should get me...and the reality is that at 31 there isn't a whole lot that I "need" other than an affordable home to buy!

If people really want to know what they can get you, don't fell bad for giving them ideas...that is what they prefer. Tell them gift cards to home depot, or sears...something you might need for the house. I have told people we really need a washer/dryer, so if they must, we would like gift cards to sears. Just keep in mind...they want to do this for you. It makes some people really happy to do this for you two.
although, thats a good idea too - if people specifically ask you and you say i sincerely dont want anything and they STILL insist on getting you something i think gift cards to places like home depot is a great idea (it will make people like grandparents who may be more likely to want to get something and be more financially equipped to do so feel better about starting your new home)
