Could you possibly send her something else as well, and apologise for the mix-up?

Maybe its on sale now and wasn’t when she purchased it? That happens on Macy’s website all the time!

Make sure for the wedding you give them a very nice gift 🙂

It’s really not something u should worry abt.

Honestly I don’t think it is that big of a deal, especially since your cousin registered for that specific item (right?). Who is to say that you could afford more?

I don’t think $15 is cheap!  That’s a very reasonable price for a wedding or shower gift. It’s usually how much I spend on people.

honestly? probably on sale. And if it was on her registry, then she obviously wanted it. Don’t stress about it.

If I was the bride I don’t think I would have even given that a second thought and deff would not have thought you were a cheapo!! Don’t stress about it, and maybe give a little more for her wedding if you’re still feeling bad.

Don’t feel bad! If she had it on her registry, of course she wanted it! I know several couples who put less expensive items on their registry so people who want to give a gift can afford to do so. What is it that your mother bought/you gave?

I wouldn’t have given it a second thought if I were the bride. I never cared how much people spent on me, I just wanted to know that they acknowledged and cared about such a big important moment in my life. In fact, if anything I felt uncomfortable when people got me really expensive gifts.
