    I am a kind of laid back bride.  I am not the type to flip out over uneven place cards or other things (that the guests don't notice anyway).  The thing that has gotten me thru this wedding process is learning to filter wisely thru the stress.  It will work out in the end, enjoy it before its over.  SOOO with that said:

     

    Saturday was my bridal shower and a friend of mine gave me a HUGE bag complete with wedding photo books, frames, and a box.  I opened the box and saw a guest book which was beautiful book. So I'm thinking, The colors match, perfect!.. aww how thoughtful.  Until I opened the book. 

     

    Inside the book had addresses and signatures from a previous wedding!!!  A REGIFT!!  What was crazy was it was actually their 7 year anniversary on the day of my shower!  This guest regift-ed their own guestbook.  SMH!!!!

     

    So all this is going on in my head and I smiled and put the book back in the box.  Wellllll  I had a little idea of my own on how to deal with this guest.  

     

    The next day I purchased an anniversary card and left a nice warm message.  Then I took that same guestbook, filled it out like I was a guest at her wedding and dated it as 2011.  I wrapped it in the best wrapping paper I could find and I had it delivered to her house!!!

     

    She laughed  her head off and was extremely embarrassed and promised to get me something better for the wedding....touche'!  Regift attempt FOILED!!!!!

     

    Sorry so long, It made me laugh!!

     

    No worries ladies,

    When it's all over your gonna sit back and laugh at half the stuff your stressing out about.

      That's funny! Similar, well almost, thing happened to me.  i received a guest signing book. i wasn't really excited as we are not using a book.. but I openned it and it had THEIR initials on the front :) ... now this is PASt their wedding, so I could of easily read all the notes they had in there. I texted her (yes during the shower) and asked if that's some kind of tradition that I wasn't aware of.. she came running and made a joke in front of everyone that she really tried to regift lol.. she wrapped the wrong book !! :)

                She totally knew, and she had help!! I forgot to mention:

                 

                She came to the shower with a mutual friend, and upon delivery the mutual friend replied, " I thought I checked out all the pages before I wrapped it!" 

                 

                SAD RIGHT!!   the situation was funny, invitations are out but on the flipside... she will never get invited to anything else I throw again.  neither one of them, that's just sad!   I am worth more than a USED 7 YEAR OLD BAG OR REGIFTS!  However the way I handled it was perfect she will think twice for the next person.

                    Thanks! I was kind of embarrassed for her that's why I didn't want to cause a scene openly.. Everyone has done a re-gift from time to time (although not proud of it). but never for something major like a wedding.  cmon'

                      It isn't even the re-gift that is so bad it is the fact that it was USED!
