OH THAT IS DEAD WRONG!!! I would say something to the friend that just wrote her name on the card. $100 ain’t nothing to sneeze at. And especially not no $600 gift!!!!!

@FranksMama: That is pretty crappy on their part. Just gotta say that.

Also, sometimes send gifts later! Two of our friends (a couple) didn’t bring a card or gift to the wedding. A few weeks later they sent us a card in the mail with money.

That other “friend” sounds like a douche!  I can’t believe she did that.

@FranksMama: That is so crazy! Do you think they did it on purpose or was it a slip-up?

Holy B!tch! I would be so pissed. Thankfully your friend understood and everything was cleared up on that end. How did you approach the ex “friend” that did that? It is SOOOO wrong!

Wow.  Just wow.  May have taken two years, but glad this was cleared up!  Is he still friends with the ones that signed only their names?

I have a friend whose mom no longer gives wedding gifts but gets the couple a nice gift on their one year anniversary!  After buying wedding gifts for several couples that did not even reach the year mark, she was fed up.  I think it’s a cute idea and I’m sure the ones that get it on their one year anniversary are excited =)

@eyegirl:

I initially thought hmm…good idea….but if that happened to me (received a gift a year later) I would have thought…”awesome, they had no faith in us”

Silly to think I guess…but to each their own!

I think waiting a year is even better. Because think of how wonderful it is to have other people remember your anniversary! The wedding is only the beginning to a wonderful life together.
