In the time-honored tradition of unsourced, unreliable facts on the internet, I’m going to guess it’s because you’re considered “newlyweds” until the 1st anniversary.

I think it is to give an excuse to those lazy people. Also, it keeps it fun when 6 months after the wedding you go to your mailbox and SURPRISE! Wedding Present! Which I am all about.

It may have some origins in people having shorter engagements and shipping taking longer.  As someone who tends to give handmade/ knit gifts, I appreciate the leeway.

You know what I think?  I’d like to know the ratio of people that actually received gifts 2-12 months later. Right after the wedding, back from a honeymoon I could possibly understand if that’s what you need to do.  But 1 year later?  And honestly, I’ve never heard of it before the Bee.

Is it because of the divorce rate?!  I don’t mean to sound harsh, but the thought of waiting for 1 year makes me think that!

We received a few gifts several months after our wedding. Actually around October/November we received like 5 gifts. We just received another gift in May! It is kind of awesome to get a gift that is unexpected!

@Mrs.Firefly1: Haha maybe!

We didn’t get a gift from SO’s aunt, but she keeps sending us e-mails telling us she’s sorry she hasn’t gotten us anything, but she’s been really busy. We’ve gotten three e-mails and one note in the mail so far; it’s getting kind of awkward, but we don’t know how to respond!

Maybe I should tell her she technically has a few months. 😉 haha
