We had a signifcant # of guests that didn’t bring gifts, and the days after the wedding we got some in the mail and then a few people said they’ll send us something but it’s been a month but haven’t heard again from these people… i don’t expect to get anything from them (about 5% of our guests) would this be normal?

Don’t know if it’s normal, but it’s certainly not unheard of. Some guests can afford it. Some guests may have gotten you a shower gift and felt that was enough. Or maybe some forgot. Are they close or rich relatives? Can you call them and demand a reason?! Haha.

Traditionally, etiquette allows up to one year post-wedding. Some people, unfortunately, plan to send something but forget. It has only been about a month, you may receive some more before the end of the year.

I don’t believe in the 1 yr rule too…
here’s an example: one of our groomsmanA went to another groomsmanB’s wedding 3 years ago…and still haven’t given him a gift yet (i know this cause GroomsmanA had mentioned that he missed the 1 year mark of giving groomsmanB a gift and called himself an a**hole)…
so needless to say I don’t think we’re getting a gift from groomsmanA… (he’s getting married at the end of this month, we’ve already sent groomsmenA his gift).

same here…a ton of people showed up sans gift. some people even crashed and didnt even give a card. the wierdest part was the people who wrote in their cards that the gift was being shipped to our house and I know they have not purchased anything…basically, theres not much you can say or do. Just be polite and gracious.
