I’m a uk bee and had no idea this is was even a  thing. my other half doesn’t even want to register anyway let alone ask people for vouchers or anything. I’m not holding out for snything but we plan on buying a new bed soon so if anyone asks we would like vouchers or a particular store. i have no intention of asking for anything and I cannot believe people expect to watch you open gifts. When my kids have parties they done open their gifts until everyone’s gone and we are back home. As if Is brides don’t have enough on our plates lol

It seems to be the norm where i live, all my cousins have done it (im one of the last to get married) and honestly that is the first thing i scrapped!! i don’t care that my mom was upset (shes traditional) but honestly! no thanks i would love to not have everyone stare at you or whatever as you open the gifts and cards or whatever that your guests arrived with.. im just not into it. I am so happy that we squashed that.. instead we are having a little breakfast time with our wedding party the morning after (who ever can make it) then some are leaving who live far away.. and we have a clean up to do! and a honeymoon to prepare for.. and to enjoy being married!

i say squash it lol

Sounds very impractical. Some guests will have sent their presents way before the wedding. Will they be sitting unopened for 6 months until the ceremony? How will you know which packages to open as they arrive? Then you need to transport them to the location of the ceremony. And what about those whose gifts have not arrived in time? Or who will send them only later? (Not to speak of the fact that it is none of your relatives’ business to gossip and compare who gave you what).
