My ex-boyfriend was one of those people.  He would attend his friends’ weddings empty handed.  I would get so frustrated.  He would always say, “It is still proper etiquette as long as you send it within a year of the wedding.” Leave to a guy to only know proper etiquette about procrastinating.

I wish we were!!  It’s been less than 2 months since our wedding, but we haven’t received a gift in at least 6 weeks.  Ha!  That’s so selfish of me! 🙂

However, is this weird to anyone else…  We only received gifts from around 5 people that attended our wedding.  Is that weird?  I know it was a destination wedding and people spent a lot of money to be there…I’m absolutely NOT expecting gifts or anything, I was just a little surprised that out of 60 people that attended, we only received 5 gifts.  Weird?  Do you normally not give gifts if you attended a destination wedding?  I’m just curious…

I was wondering about gifts for destination weddings.  I almost opted not to even have a registry because people were going to spend money on going to our wedding (Aruba), but people suggested we do one anyone for those who can’t make it or those who go to the wedding shower. 

But honestly, I hope no one brings gifts with them to Aruba…I’d hate for them to lug it around, or for us to have a lot of stuff to bring home!  How did that work for you Little Bear?

Sounds like a nice little surprise to come home to from time to time.  I know it sounds selfish, but I can’t wait to start seeing what people are getting for me!

We have still been getting a few, but I have finally given up registry stalking. There are a few people who I would have expected to get gifts from who didn’t give us anything yet. So maybe a few more are coming. Who doesn’t love presents?!

While Mr. Peng was in grad school, he honestly couldn’t afford to give wedding gifts (he donated platelets weekly so that he could EAT!). So, he gave a few gifts a year late, after he graduated and got a job. It’s possible some friends just weren’t in the right financial situation to get you a gift, but always intended to! Or, they remembered in the middle of the night that they forgot to give you a gift 🙂
