Wow, that is terrible!  I guess her true colors are coming out…  And it ruined her honeymoon too!?  Who does that?

@TwoCityBride:    Wow, how unbelievably rude!  You should tell her that her behavior  is exactly the reason her sister got more money and gifts for her wedding. 

That marriage might not last too long if she treats her husband the same way she treats the rest of your family.  So sorry you had to deal with that!

Oh my gosh, that’s horrifying. 

It’s weird that she and her sister shared amounts of what they got, too.  I never would dream of asking my sister how much money people gifted her…

That is just absolutely terrible! It makes me upset with her just reading about her actions and I don’t even know the girl! How dare she!

I had a friend who was just way too interested in the amount of money people gave him for his wedding. I really don’t understand that.  I certainly don’t expect people to give me anything, and that is beyond ungrateful to actually be angry they didn’t give enough!!! That’s so not what a wedding is about!   Wow.  That’s all I have to say.  Wow….

Ugh. Because weddings are all about the money, right?

Here’s where you count your blessing in your own life and be happy that you have enough perspective to know that this stuff just doesn’t matter. 🙂

Back when my sister-in-law got married, in 2008, she recieved a very nice cash gift from a relative. She told me that when my husband and I got married last fall, we could expect to recieve the same amount. Well….our gift was 1/6th of what she recieved. When I first saw it, I was a little shocked, and then a little sad, wondering if these relatives disapproved of our relationship, or something. Then I started thinking about what had changed between her wedding and ours – the ecomony took a big hit. The relatives in question are elderly, and my guess is that their investments took an unexpected hit. I know they don’t favor my sister in law over my husband. It took me thinking about it in this way to come to a conclusion that left me feeling ok about the whole thing.  

It’s probably not about the money, its about feeling like you are equally valued by your family. Someone needs to take this bride aside and give her a wakeup call – people’s financial situations change all the time. In my own case, I certainly never mentioned my sadness/dissapointment about this to anyone – that would certainly have been misunderstood, and I would have been seen as horribly ungrateful!
