Gift Giving Traditions - Posted on Friend's Website

Recommended Posts

I have one thing to say about this:

 

HOW DARE YOU TALK ABOUT MY WEBSITE AND MY GIFT GIVING REGULATIONS WHEN I'M RIGHT HERE! THEY ARE JUST STRICT RULES ABOUT HOW YOU SHOULD TREAT ME THAT EVERYONE MUST ABIDE BY! JUST TRYING TO MAKE THINGS EASIER!

 

haha, just joking. it's not really my website.

 

but I DO have one thing to say about this, which is:

 

what gets into people?

"*If you receive an invitation, even if you can't attend the wedding, it is expected you will send a gift."

 

This sounds exactly like my friend who is getting married in December, in fact, the whole list does! She is totally the same way, practically demanding gifts from everyone she knows. May I add she bought me a set of 4 napkins (on sale for $1.50 each) for my wedding gift. I know it's the thought that counts, but this is kind of unfair when she pretty much told me she's expecting a $350 bed comforter from me.

 

Some people are just absolutely disgusting when it comes to gift greediness.

Court - WIll you please get her the ugliest, worst gift you can find? Like one of those tissue box covers with fake birds or flowers glued to it. If she asks just tell her you didn't know she registered anywhere.

I can't believe someone would have the nerve to post something like this on their website!!! It is so unbelievably rude & tacky!!!

 

If I were invited to a wedding and couldn't attend, I would send a gift if it was someone I was close to. But if it were someone I didn't even talk to or like anymore, I wouldn't send anything, especially if I felt I was only invited to get a gift.

 

She's got some nerve!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
