convinced us to unwrap the gifts at the reception. If I had to vote for what I think people should do, I would say either open the next day with family and close friends. If the bride and groom are going on their honeymoon right after the wedding, I think a close second would be for them to open the gifts when they return. What would or did you do?
I hope nobody minds, but can I use this space to vent? I went to a wedding shower for an admittedly immature 28 year old this summer. It is October, her wedding is done and her first baby is due in a few weeks. I have still not received a thank you card for the gift I gave at the shower OR the wedding. I really wish she were having a baby shower so I could DENY! It is her 4th kid but she is tacky enough to require her friends to throw her one. Gosh I hope she has one so I can say NO. Sorry, I am totally off topic from the blog, but I just feel like I have to stress for the few people out there that don't know to send thank you cards. Anybody else have experience with people that don't send thank you cards?
I came across this neat gift today. I think it is so incredibly creative. It really shows that you took your time to come up with the gift for the happy couple. You'll have to spend some time at a place with a lot of pebbles. You can pick up one of these shadow box frames at a craft store like Michael's. get some super glue or use a hot glue gun and you are made in the shade. You'll want to sign the art because they are going to wonder if you purchased this at the store. Such a cute gift, but will have such a big impact on the newlyweds.
I love weddings! They celebrate the love of a man and a woman as they promise to love each other forever. We will ignore the 50% divorce rate in this fantasy. Picking out the gift is one of the most fun parts of the occasion for me. There is a right way and a wrong way to go about getting a wedding gift for the bride and groom. We'll take a look at different options throughout this blog. Hopefully this will make your next wedding gift purchase a little easier to pick out.
