- Wedding: September 2013
Hello everyone, I need some suggestions. I am having a wedding (or vow renewal or blessing of my marriage or whatever you want to call it) and I am already married. With my husband being in the military when he got orders abroad we eloped at the last second, just he and I. We are now having the formal wedding with everyone there on our year anniversary. Right after we got married lots of family members sent us gifts and money and things, for this reason and many others we are not wanting/expecting/hoping and gifts. To get them would actually be a pain because we would then have to pay to mail them to us overseas after the wedding. However, my parents keep telling us that no matter what there will be some people who will give us money or gifts.
So here is where I need the advice. I don’t want to have a gift table or anything like that because of the circumstances I already stated, but my family says we need somewhere to have for people to put gifts and cards at the wedding. I also don’t want someone to see that someone brought us a gift and feel like maybe they should have or something. We really just want our guests to attend and to see them before we move overseas for another 3 years… so what should I do? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
