- Wedding: August 2009
So I’m sitting here doing my thankyou’s, and I got to a groomsman’s mom, who sent some champagne flutes. I started out pretty standard… “thanks for the champagne flutes, it’s so nice to have pretty crystal for celebrations…”
The next thing I knew I was waxing poetic about what a great guy her son was, and how much it meant to us to have such a solid guy supporting us through the wedding weekend, how helpful he was, life of the party, etc. I knew he’d been great, but it just occurred to me as I was writing that I should mention it, and the next thing I knew I was trying to fit all of my words of gratitude in, and writing smaller and smaller to make it fit. It kind of took me by surprise!
This isn’t inappropriate, is it? I’m worried that it might shift the focus off of the gift, but I did want her to know since she couldn’t come that her kid had done good, you know? But maybe it’s too much… It’s funny, I always knew the GM’s as DH’s buddies, but during the wedding, they were just rock solid, and I gained a whole new appreciation for them. Anyway, anybody had an experience like this? Any thoughts?
