- Wedding: September 2013
First, let me just lay out whose gifts to which I am referring.
My FMIL aka wedding co-ordinator who loves basking in attention
my FSIL- who FMIL said she has helped do things but has not been officially accounted doing anyting
A lady I never met -Fairy god mother (FGM) who apparently has a taste for decorating and has picked out decorations for my reception, put together my centerpieces, made my boquets, and will be helping to physically decorate the church and the reception venue.
wait staff- a few of FIL family or friends of family
Videographers- husband and wife
FSIL’s friend- doing bridal party’s hair, make-up, nails
All of whom are contributing a skill or service and their time and are not charging us anything. All of whom I have purchased a gift. Now, when do I give them their gift and do I awkledge them and their services at the rehersal dinner or durring FI and I’s speech at the wedding reception, or both or neither or what do I do? Should I give the gifts privately, or in front of everyone?
