Ew! I can’t believe that! I have never heard of this happening – you would think they would be embarrassed for giving “gifts” like that! I don’t blame you for being upset. I’m sure it will be tough to send a grateful-sounding thank you card!

Wow, that’s lame.  You’re a better person than I.  My thank you card wouldn’t be all that nice.  It’d probably say something like, “thank you for attending our wedding.  We hope you had an enjoyable evening.  And thank you for the gift”… Ok, so I guess its not that harsh but I’d hope they got the hint!  I have no idea why they would do that, aside from financial reasons.  But you said they don’t have any problems in that area so, is there a chance that your family and theirs have had some issues lately?  Even still, that shouldn’t effect the gift giving.

Yuck. That does feel like a slap in the face. I mean, I know times are tough right now, but someone can at least buy you a current wedding card for $3.00…

That’s awful! That happened to my best friend too– she invited a couple (her parents’ friends), who asked if their adult daughter and husband could come too.  The daughter and husband ended up bringing their 9 month old baby!  (To a wedding where NO children were invited) As a gift (from all five of them), my friend received an ugly vase with no receipt!!!  As the Countess says, money can’t buy class : )
