My husband just sent me this article: http://www.therecord.com/living-story/3848501-class-or-crass-wedding-gift-spat-spirals-out-of-control/. I was completely appalled by the treatment the bride gave this couple. My response to my husband was: This couple obviously weren't getting married for love, but for money. When we opened our gifts I was surprised and delighted by even the smallest gift from anyone. To think they thought of us and gave their time to share our day is the real gift.
What is the world coming to when couples think that people owe them anything because they chose to get married. When we budgeted for our wedding we were not expecting any money from anyone to cover anything, we were in awe when we did receive any form of gift or cash from people. It was our day that we asked them to share in, that did not mean we expected them to pay for their meal, for their drinks, for their time being there. All it meant when we invited them was that they meant so much to us and we wanted to share our special day with them. If we couldn't invite someone it was due to our budgetary restraints and not wanting to depend on everyone coming to have to pay for their drinks or their food.
Enough of my rant, sometimes I just cannot believe people in this world and their feelings of entitlement.
My favourite part of our wedding day, marrying the love of my life in front of family and friends (presents were furthest from my mind).
