    @bebero:  I think I would remember, I take these kind of things to heart. I love cards and the sentiments in them. Although I would certainly not judge someone if they gave me a $1.00card lol.

    DH and I both have excellent memory and we had a relatively small guest list (~70 guests = ~40 gifts) and we both absolutely remember exactly who gifted what and what the dollar amount was (if it was a check).

    @bebero:  i take stuff like that to heart, I remember who did and didn’t get me christmas and birthday presents as well.  I will notice and I will remember.  I don’t expect much from my family as they will all be travelling a great distance but if I don’t get at least a card from them I’ll be upset.

    I remember a good amount – but the ones that stick out ate people who were like oh your gift is on its way then it never actually comes. Not tht I care if you don’t give a gift, but it’s kind of tacky to say that to someone randomly then never send anything. We def ha a few guest who did that and they are the same people who did it to my sister when she got married.

    Yup! We had a spreadsheet so when we wrote thank you notes we could incorporate the gift in the thank you.

    @Peachytalk:  We had someone give us an $8 card (WITH $100 inside). We were like “Who the HELL spends $8 on a CARD?” I prefer the $1 ones! There’s no reason to ever buy a card like the one we got.

    OP- I do remember what we got for gifts, but that’s my thing–I have a crazy memory for unimportant details (I’m also pretty great at Jeopardy). I definitely didn’t judge anyone for a lack of gift, though. 6 of our 42 guests were college seniors, and 10 of our guests had small children!

    I absolutely remember everyone who gave gifts and what they gave! And by extension, who didn’t give gifts.

    We invited 160 guests, 130 attended and I remember who sent a card, who gave us a gift, what they gave or amount of money they gave and who didn’t.

    Didn’t you need to figure it out to write thank yous?

     

     

    We like to let friends and family know as we use their gift.  I made salsa for the first time sent a picture text to the friend who gave us the Ninja 🙂

     

    We don’t remember to keep score we remember to be grateful.

    Not married yet, but I remember Christmas and birthday gifts.

    It might be petty, but if a friend didn’t even make me a card for my birthday, I’m not going to go out and buy her anything bigger than a box of candy for her birthday.  Not that I wouldn’t be friends with her, but just because I don’t want to create an uncomfortable imbalance.

    I remember who gave gifts because I wrote their names down for the thank-yous.

    I don’t remember who didn’t give a gift because truthfully, I don’t care. I don’t need a card to validate my marriage.
