I should be giving gifts to the not-invited?!
Posted 06 November 2008 - 04:49 AM
First off, NO ONE including Mother or FMIL are invited to the wedding!!! From day one this was going to be a known 'elopement' and honeymoon in one. Both sides are up for it, and excited for us and the planning they get to do for the AHR. Lately though, both have these fun ideas of what I "should" do, knowing me, they should know that will never work lol... the veil conversation was interesting alone.
Second, WTF?! I laughed and laughed when my Mom told me this, and laughed when I told FI! But, he thinks it's a good idea...
I'm not sure what to think now... The plan was to send announcements with a picture after, but this just seems a bit much! What do you think?
(Oh and the gifts are personalized votive candles)
Thank you for any input!

I think it will be expensive if you start sending out gifts to folks because they aren't invited to the actual ceremony.

No I wouldn't be doing it lol Just tell FI its going to be really expensive and that'll change his mind lol

I would either send out a pic announcement after you get back...or do a picture frame for the AHR. Nothing more!

I personally would find it strange to find a candle in the mail, especially if I were not invited to the wedding.
I think you should hold on to the favors and give them out at your AHR.
I would send announcements/invites out with a photo if you want. You can also do photo thank you cards.

And like Erin said....it might seem weird to get a candle in the mail.

do you think that your mom and FMIL want to impress their friends? i know that if my MIL suggested that, the sole purpose would be to impress her yenta friends.
