- Wedding: March 2013
Our wedding came and went and there were a lot of bad experiences, but overall, the day went well.
Our DOC did an AWFUL job. Ugh.
We had so many issues with missing gifts, gifts that had the wrong tags replaced on them when they became unattached, etc.
Here’s our are current issues and I don’t know how to deal with them, for fear of coming across as tacky. We’re beginning the process of thank you notes, since we’ve now opened all of our gifts (all came at the wedding, except for about four, so we have a lot of writing to do!).
1) We have a total of two gifts that have no giver attached to them. The tags have been ripped off the packages (there’s tape residue, so those tags are someone back at the venue).
2) We received a card at the wedding that said, “We hope our gift brings back memories!” But, we didn’t get a gift from them. Neither of the two gifts trigger any memories that relate back to the couple who wrote that note.
With these two issues, I can contact the people in problem #2 and ask if they got the unaccounted for gifts. Hopefully it’s one of them.
Otherwise, we have 17 guests who did not appear to bring gifts. How do I go about contacting them to see if the two gifts with no givers is from them? How do I word the question without possibly bringing up the fact that they didn’t bring a gift?
Also, did anyone experience things that were fulfilled on their registry, but they never received them? We have four items on our registry that we haven’t gotten and they been bought for months now. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else and what was done about it, if anything.
Thanks for all your help!
