Even though no one is required to give a gift and you shouldn’t have planned such an expensive wedding if you were counting on cash gifts to offset costs, I do understand where you’re coming from. With gifts, it is the thought that counts and I do think it’s rude not to give anything. It is kind of like freeloading in a way. Some people see weddings as a free night of food and booze and entertainment and just don’t think that a gift is necessary because off all the ‘free’ stuff. It’s like people who don’t tip.

Jeez, you sound about one step away from billing these people for a check because you decided to have a wedding…

Time to let it go.

@Carolyn72: It’s a place to vent and also to get a reality check when it sounds like someone is coming unglued about something that is out of their control. I think weddings tend to make people a little crazy sometimes. You should be focusing on how great it is that you married the love of your life, not who didn’t give you money.

@Carolyn72: this is definitely the place to vent, but your right this post does make you sound just a tad materialistic. But thats okay, as long you don’t really send them a bill its all good 😛

@Carolyn72:  I may be the only poster that thinks this but I don’t think you sound all that materialistic.  You have every right to be irritated when someone tells you they are coming, you include them in the head count, and then they’re a no-show.  And not providing an explanation is just plain rude.  I agree that gifts aren’t mandatory but are a well-mannered courtesy.  You certainly shouldn’t feel guilty for expecting a card!
