One of my very close friends is also getting married in October( 2 weeks after me) and we were out last night talking and she asked how much money Fiance and I are expecting in gifts at our wedding. Umm I didn’t know what to say to this! We invited about 181 and so far have 90 people coming( RSVP due date is FRIDAY) we still have 35 invites out. Anyway, I haven’t really thought much about this and I thought it was kind of rude to be asked anyway. I didn’t really answer and she already has a number in her head for her wedding!!! How can you honestly judge that? Random I know but it got me thinking!

wow, ya thats crazy to even assume! the things people say!
the only thing i heard close to that was- my Future Mother-In-Law is inviting a lot of people i dont know..and a coworker said maybe Future Mother-In-Law is trying to get more gifts for us..( but NO WAY i dont see that at all, my Fiance is her baby and she wants a huge wedding)
the thing is.. you will get what you get and you should be happy for it.. no way should you ever be counting on ANY gifts.. a GIFT is just that something that is NOT REQUIRED.
My guestlist was Not who would give the best gift- but who i wanted to spend my day with!

I had someone ask me the same thing. I never put cash gifts or registered and I just dont care. If they want to get me something, its totally up to them. But they ask me “But you do care? If someone doesnt give you something you should say something.” Sure I think you should always bring something to a wedding, but at I having a wedding for the gifts?? Uh no.

Eh, it wouldn’t bother me at all especially if it’s a close friend. Wanting money/gifts at a wedding is a fact of life and I think we all kid ourselves when we say “it doesn’t matter how much I get.” Yes, I will be thrilled when my guests come to my wedding and will not care if they don’t give me money but it would be nice and if they don’t I’d just be honored they came to share in my day. If a really close friend that was getting married shortly asked me, I’d just answer her and ask back. Maybe I’m not the norm though

Exactly, I don’t expect anything but I’m not saying I wouldn’t be over the moon if people did gift us something.
