any other Bee’s tally up their wedding gifts and we’re shocked at what they got in a good way?
DH is italian and its basically expected that the guests bring money for the couple called a “boosta”, and my family is from out of province so we knew we would get mostly money from anyone who gave a gift at all mainly because it was easier…..(and the store we were registered at is in my home province).
After we opened everything from the wedding and as the cards filtered in the mail, we were blown away at the total (especially given how many people actually DIDNT give us anything at all even a card……)

Yes! We haven’t even gotten married yet, and I’m shocked by the generosity. Our registry is half cleaned out, and they bought the GOOD stuff! China and crystal and silver platters, not towels and kitchen tongs.
I feel so loved, and it’s a bit humbling. I keep saying, “Wow, do we deserve this?!”

@shanbp: Yes! My family has done so much and our wedding isn’t even here! We had been offered a hotel in Kauai but when we cut back things for the wedding we ended up cancelling the trip and kindly turned down their offer. Later on we were reoffered the trip and stand by tickets! We are extremely blessed 🙂
