TaniaKnowsBest:  I’m sorry but this is extremely hypocritical. How come we are supposed to just “move on”if we don’t like what was said, but when I say something you don’t like I’m told to “chill out.” I’m not sure why your advice only applies to everyone else and not yourself.

I would ask. My cousin had a bunch of cards with money in them stolen from his reception venue (including my mom’s card). He remarked to his mother (mom’s brother’s wife) that it was strange they didn’t get anything from any of his aunts. My aunt herself had put cards with money in the box from her sisters so she knew that was incorrect. Mom felt bad the money was stolen but couldn’t afford to give more as we already travelled to get to the wedding (it was a Destination Wedding for us)

LarLa:  Wow, that is horrible! I can’t imagine how upset your cousin must have been knowing someone they cared enough about to invite to their wedding would steal from them!! Unless they thought it was the staff, but it seems like someone would notice that…

I’m fine with that becasue I can’t delete the comment. She can get her very helpful advice from the you and the other ladies from the thread. 🙂

TaniaKnowsBest:  This is probably the rudest way to thank people for gifts.  I personally think it’s overrated to keep giving gifts to people who don’t know how to appropriately express their gratitude.
