Got to warn you, this is a bit of a sore subject with a lot of people and it makes me seem very materialistic so don't read on if you're easily offended!
I just wanted to ask the OM's, nearly weds, and people who are close to others who have got married, if they know of someone being invited to a wedding and not giving a gift at all?
The reason I ask is that OH and I went to a wedding last Sunday with his family and as we were leaving the house, OH's older brother said 'what's that?' about the card in my hand. I said it's a card for the bride and groom. He said, 'are we meant to get them a card?' and I was like, erm, yeah? I said we were giving them some money and had put it in the card. He was so shocked that we were giving them money, he genuinely had no idea you were meant to get anything for the bride and groom. He seemed pretty outraged that he was expected to give a gift and needless to say, didn't give anything.
It just popped into my head again in the shower and I was wondering if this has happened to anyone and how they would react if it did?
I've made a tab on my wedding spreadsheet with everyone's names on and I'm going to write next to them what gift they gave and when we got it so I can do our thank you cards. It sounds awful but this has got me wondering if there are some people on that spreadsheet that may remain blank...
