“No boxed gifts please.”  I realize this may be socially acceptable in some circles/cultures, but in the USA it is absolutely 1000% tacky!

@Cappugcino:  A facebook STD? 15 months before the wedding? But they’ve been engaged for 3 years so I guess they couldn’t wait until closer to the wedding (which I’m having trouble doing right now lol). And I guess we live in a paper free world on the internet now.

@sailor:  Yup, I’ve received plenty of these.

Also, bridal shower invitations with  “Money Shower” somewhere on there.

OP, I have also been invited to plenty of showers with my mom but not the wedding. It has never really bothered me because my mom just took care of the gift. I figured if they really are just inviting me for the company, well then I’m not taking anything (although I guess my mom’s gift usually more than made up for my lack of gift).

Anytime I get an invitation where glue has been involved I kind of cringe, with the exception of envelope liners (soooo pretty). There is no reason in our digital world with a Staples and Kinkos on every corner and a chunk of people with home printers that anything should every have to be cut and pasted. It’s an aesthetics thing more than anything, but it drives me nutty!

I had a darling invitation that would have been amazing except for the 1000 pounds of glitter that fell out on my carpet when I opened it. Please step away from the glitter!
