- Wedding: November 2013
So I am doing Thank You notes now for my wedding a couple weeks ago, and unfortunately it turns out that a leather embossed photo album that one of my dear bff’s got me was lost.
Since our venue was small, there wasn’t that much room to put physical gifts so when I arrived late (wanted to make an entrance), I saw that the physical gifts were scattered under tables with no rhyme or reason. When the soiree was cooling down, I put everything that I did see in one pile, and assuming it was everything (had both DH and another friend check), I brought it to our hotel room.
When unwrapping the gifts that I did gather, I saw that there was one photo album in a pretty box, but I couldn’t find a card to go with it. I asked my bff if it happened to be her gift, but she said hers was a brown leather embossed photo album, and it wasn’t that one. Well, guess what? There was no brown leather embossed photo album. I asked the friend where she put it when she arrived, and she said that another friend grabbed it and took it to the back room where coats were stored. Unfortunately, when I went to the venue the next day to pick up our main centerpiece and leftover cake and other supplies, I didn’t know to ask about a missing gift, but no one at the venue told me they found some other stuff. My DH thinks it may have just gotten thrown out when they were throwing out the decorations. This bums me out and has me hoping that there were no other gifts “put in the back room.” :/
So Bees, has something like this happened to you at your wedding?
Also, how can I find out who got us the other photo album? Any advice?
