- Wedding: July 2013
This is hysterical!!!
This is hysterical!!!
We were given a Turkish fertility plate.
@LaviniaRose2013: Somebody gave us one towel and we also thought that was a little weird. Like either get at least 2 or get a different gift if you can’t afford the two, just seemed weird lol.
Somebody got us some cute dishtowels from anthro that weren’t on our registry, and they actually were really cute but we had NO clue wtf they were at first, we had to look on the site to figure it out LOL
As a wedding gift we got a dog leash….we don’t own a dog.
Also, this didn’t happen in the end but because I once jokingly mentioned how I wanted a pet rat (they are really smart!) my Mother-In-Law apparently found a pattern and was going to knit me a sweater with a freaking giant rat pictured on it. Adding to the weirdness, the gift was meant to be a birthday present…..my birthday is in July, the optimal sweater season. Also…I just really don’t like homemade sweaters or really knit anything, and have NEVER worn anything suggesting I’d want that sweater. It was nice that she wanted to appeal to one of my ‘interests’ but…no thank you.
Oh gee I can’t wait to see if we get some wacky gifts. I have no registry but I did receive an early gift. Crystal candlesticks. They’re gorgeous, I just wish I had someplace to display them where they wouldn’t get dusty, so they’ll have to stay in the box for now 🙁
A friend of mine received two very heavy stone rabbits, like the kind you might use to decorate a garden or yard, I suppose. Of course, she and her fiance have no garden or yard. (Indoor rabbits, perhaps??)
I guess mine wasn’t HORRIBLE, but at my shower I recieved a small metal angel… that was rusted and meant to hang in your window (which I am pretty sure is where it lived until it was packaged for me) and some incense and a wooded incense holder, I made a mental note to put the incense in a re-gift pile… that was until the gift giver told me how much she knew I would love them, and she couldn’t wait to see them displayed at our house… what to do now…
I gave a pretty weird gift… my friend and I (and our SOs) went in together and got a friend a cooler and some other little things, including some homebrewed beer (that we ran out of time to label…). At the end of the night we were helping to load a car up with all the gifts, and stuck the cooler (with the beer and our other present inside) in the car, but apparently other gifts were shoved inside the cooler too. So my friend, like, months later, texts and says “OH! That was beer! From you!” and I slapped my own forehead because who is so dumb they don’t label their gift, namely homemade consumables… Still feel like an idiot, but worst I think is how confusing the gift situation must have been for my friend, not knowing what came from who!
I’m not married, but I did recently attend a wedding where an etiquette book was gifted.
