- Wedding: August 2011
My American hostfamily is not coming to my wedding, I was not expecting them to come but I just send an invitation to be thoughtfull. I was an exchangestudent in 1995 (I was 17 at that time), went back 2 times. Talk a lot through facebook lately. They truly feel as my second family.
A few weeks ago, hostmom asked me if we have a registry. We are not familiar with that. So I replied: “no, but if there is a reason for asking, the best gift is a place to stay next year because we would love to visit” She replied back that I would always have a home but she insists sending a gift for our wedding. She asked what we would like or what colours we like.
That’s kind of difficult question, I don’t know what to reply back because if we say something it would say something about our expectations, a pricetag. And ofcourse the shippingcosts can get very expensive.
Any ideas we could reply back. A cookbook? Or I remember I love Mary Engelbreit back in those day’s. Are there still, not to expensive gifts like that? Please help me with ideas.
