Gift giving question...

Recommended Posts

A co-worker asked me this morning about gift-giving, and I don't really know the answer! I told her I'd ask the experts... so experts - here we go! rolleyes.gif

 

She is attending a wedding at the end of this month. It is a small, intimate beach wedding in Connecticut, with family only, with the exception of my co-worker and her husband. There will be a big reception in August with hundreds of people. So, the question is - when should she bring her gift? To the actual wedding ceremony; or wait until the reception in Augusthuh.gif

i would bring it to the ceremony she must be special to the people getting married so if i was her i would bring it there....either one would be fine i think but i think she seems special to the mr.andmrs.......

I would just ship the gift to their house (anytime) - it's so much easier than worrying about if the bride and groom or someone in their family picked it up and got it to them after the party, you know?

I agree...I would just have it shipped directly to them. Personally, I'd try to have it there around the time of their first ceremony just so it doesn't seem like an after thought.

 

But if she prefers to take it in person, then definitely the smaller event. . .if only for the fact that at the larger event there will likely be a LOT more gifts that need to be transported so why add to that if you can give it to her earlier? You know?

I agree that I would bring it to the ceremony. then if everyone brings gifts she wont feel bad like she forgot and if no one does atleast the couple will feel grateful for it.

i heard that it's actually considered rude these days to bring the gift to the wedding - then the bride and groom have to worry about dealing with all of the gifts, and who wants to do that on their wedding day! (i realize you appoint people, but still ... ). i never bring the gift - i always have it shipped, it so much easier for everyone!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
