bridey2016 :  I totally understand how you feel. I don’t have the best relationship with my father and step mother, and they made no effort whatsoever to even try to come to my wedding. In addition to that, they didn’t even congratulate us until a month after the fact, when my dad called out of the blue and started gushing about the video and picture, because I was big enough to still send him pictures.

If I were you, I’d be miffed about not receiving even just a card, since that’s a pretty standard gesture for a wedding. I’d wonder why they didn’t think to at least do that much. Has your relationship with his parents been off, or do they just not exchange cards for things like birthdays or holidays? Either way, I totally understand where you’re coming from, don’t let anyone on here make you feel bad!

bridey2016 :  Neither of our immediate families gave us anything. That includes his mom, my dad, my sister, and his two sisters. None of them contributed to the wedding either. Now, my sister did help clean up and stuff, and both of our parents are pretty broke. But his sisters didn’t help and didn’t give anything. And I don’t care. A lot of our guests didn’t give anything and I don’t really remember who did and who didn’t. I don’t think lack of a gift should change your feelings about your inlaws. That’s honestly pretty petty.
