Just makes me so mad! lol. I will especially not send a gift now, and if I send something... it'll be a card I happened to pick up while grocery shopping - that's it!
HA! In her face!!
Are you really expected to give a gift if you don't go?! Yes, I know it's tacky for her to post this on her website... but if she didn't, would I have been expected to give her something even though I'm not going??
Ok, so I might be new to planning a wedding, but I have become an EXPERT at attending them. First of all, the bride and groom aren't suppose to expect gifts from the people who attend the wedding, let alone people who don't come! Attending the wedding and sharing in the couple's special day is suppose to be enough! Obviously I am not advocating going to weddings and not bringing gifts, but I think it's a little bit different to tell people they better bring their "A" game and not waste their money on toasters!
Second, the balls on this girl to "expect" anything from people who aren't even going! You are absolutely NOT required to send a gift if you don't go the wedding! It is completely up to you and it's REDICULOUS that she is telling her guests she expects a gift... why doesnt she just tell people who was invited for the gift and who was invited because she wanted them there?!?!
And now I must sign off... I could go on forever (selfish people bother me) but FI will be home in approximately 5 minutes and I have to try to make it look like I've been studying all afternoon
