    My FMIL told me that....
    That's funny, my mom just told me that. I had never heard that before either. But yes, I agree to ship gifts before or after.

    I got a few small gifts at my wedding from people that also sent gifts, but it was all useable stuff like fragrant candles for my hotel room and lingerie. It wasn't a burden because it was easy to bring back to the hotel and it was kind of sweet.

      That's silly!! Gift giving, whether it's brought to the wedding or shipped should never be considered rude!!! I think couples expect too much out of getting gifts for their weddings. They should be thankful when someone gets them a gift, no matter what it is, or when they receive it!! I'm not saying you're like that Ann, but I just thought that was silly! This comes after reading my friends website where she EXPECTS a gift, whether we plan to attend or not!!! Oh, Please!
