do you give presents?


Recommended Posts

when you don't go to the wedding? i mean even at-home weddings...

 

my parents taught me to give a gift as long as i was invited, even if i didn't go (weddings, bday parties)...

 

i was just curious if other people did as well.....

My mamma says they have a year . . . who would wait a year I don't know, but that's the old school tradition.

Yes, I absolutely give a gift when invited to a wedding. Even if I don't attend, I still make sure and send something. I think the rule is a year after the wedding is acceptable, but I try to do it about a month after, so the couple is home from the honeymoon, back in their routine, etc, and surprise, a gift!

I always send a gift if I was invited. If I don't go to the wedding, I usually just order something off of their registry. If I do go, I give cash (so many people prefer that so they have something for their honeymoon).

But, my FI said he never heard of sending a gift if you don't go to the wedding(...then again, he's the type of person who doesn't remember his mom's birthday and shops Christmas Eve, so I wouldn't go by what he does!)

 

feedback.gifThe DW brides that have already gotten married, do you find that people still send gifts if they don't come? I feel as if they don't because it's a DW, but I have no idea!

Totally! In the weeks before the wedding we received gifts from a lot of people who couldn't go - maybe that was their way of saying "sorry we can't go-take this instead". lol We are still getting gifts from people who didn't go. You'll be surprised :o)

Not that I'm fishing for presents (lol), it's just that we invited 240(!) people and are expecting probably 80 or so to come. I wasn't sure if I should register for a lot of things or not. I don't want anyone who IS coming to get me a gift because their coming is enough, but didn't know if those who weren't would still send something.

BTW - Sorry I totally highjacked this thread!!!!!!!
