Do I give a gift bag to a guests mom?

Recommended Posts

i would say give her a gift bag, and put a note in it telling her how you guys are so glad she was able to attend your wedding week and to please accept this gift bag "as a thank you for celebrating with us".

 

that should tie up everything, she wouldnt feel obliged to give a gift of thanks for a thank you that you gave her, and it would prevent HER feeling awkward for being dragged on this trip. i guess try to look at it from her perspective, kwim?

I would suggest giving her a gift bag since she will also be one of your guests (sort of)... I agree with the other ladies here, you don't want to leave anyone out. Besides, you don't know her well enough to know what she may or may not do. If she gives you a gift, you would be the one feeling awkward. Its a nice gesture, and at the minimum.. her son will really appreciate you making that effort to include her!

my best friends mum is coming with us as my best friend is the only one who doesnt have a partner out of the 18 of us going - i dont know her v well - but she is coming to the wedding as its at no extra cost to us - i have decided to treat her just like all the other guests.

I would give her a gift bag. Like someone else said earlier, she's not your friend now but after a week together she will be. I think it would be a little awkard for her is everyone else in the group but her got one as well. We've got three people coming we don't know and they are getting OOT bags.

Treat her the same as any other invited guest. And if she does get you a gift, its a little bonus! If not, no hard feelings. I wouldn't stress over it too much, its just a gift bag :)

    • 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?
