@SandyThePoet:  This is still making me laugh! ๐Ÿ™‚

We’ve gotten a few interesting shower gifts…one being a platter with strawberries and pineapples all over. The wedding is in a little over two weeks…I might be able to contribute to this then!

We got a total REGIFT!!!!

We also got really tacky multi colored martini glasses, the recept was attached to the inside of the box, yay right??  Ummm the recept was from a place that had closed down 7 years ago and the date on the recept was 10 years old!!!!  So we can not return it, who does that?!?  We think that she did not know the recept was in the box!

@Shosha1:  You can always just pounch a hole through it and say it got damaged in the move so there is no risk of having to hang it up, ever! ๐Ÿ˜‰

These are cracking me up!  I have two stories.  (I’m old what can I say)  I got married the first time when I was 20 years old…and we got this weird mini water fountain thing with a lions head that spit water.  I had no idea what to do with that thing.  It ended up in a yard sale years later.

When my bff who has been so since we were 11 years old was getting married I decided to play a prank on her (we are famous for messing with each other) So I had found this OLD box in my attic that contained some of the ugliest 70’s style toasting flutes you’ve ever seen…so I wrapped it up in very pretty wedding paper, and gave them to her during a lunch date.  I told her that they were mine when I got married and I’d be honored if she used them.  I thought for SURE when she opened them she’d realize they were hideous, and that I was joking.  (Afterall, She did see the real flutes I used when I got married! Geeez)  She was so sweet and gushed over them, telling me how honored she was that I wanted to give her something so special.  Man, I felt like the biggest ass.  I told her the truth, and we had a big laugh, but she told me to beware…one day she would get me back.   So, I may soon have something monumental to add to this thread. haha!

Some of these are just… wow. Makes you wonder what people are thinking, right?!

We didn’t recieve anything over-the-top wacky, but definitely some questionable things.

A woman who works with my Mother-In-Law gave us the most hideous Waterford crystal cake serving set. She said it was for our “perfect white wedding cake” and was “something to treasure forever” and that we’d use the set all the time. Not only are we *not* crystal people (except for our high-end glassware, but that’s different!)… we didn’t have a regular wedding cake (let alone a white one). For our Fenway cake, we used our venue’s simple knife.

The sad part is, I suspect she paid full price for it, which is usually around $300.

My brother and his wife win for most unusual: a framed collage that says our last name, est. and our wedding date (as in, SMITH est. 6.7.12). It’s hanging in our house because it’s actually pretty neat, but… seriously? And they brought the thing on the plane with them from FL!

We also ended up with an abnormally high number of bedding things: sheet sets, duvets, blankets, etc. We did register for some of them, but not all. We were already living together… were they trying to tell us something? ๐Ÿ˜€

I love the 40’s and 50’s and collect a lot of pinup memorabilia, Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn, type things.  So, my grandmother decided to take my love of all things vintage and run with it.

As a gift, she gave me some of her lingerie from the 50’s.  Ok, so it is kind of cool and I love the style of it.  However, there is no way in hell that I am going to wear something to seduce my husband that she wore to seduce my grandfather!  Eww!  What if my dad was conceived thanks to that particular nighty?  No, thank you!

We didn’t receive any bad gifts (probably cause our wedding was small so we only had like 5 actual presents), just ones we’d never use. My boss gave us an electric skillet – we used it once and it just sits in our kitchen taking up space.

My mom bought us matching watches. They’re alright but we’ve never even taken them out of the box. One day I might pawn them or something.

After the wedding my dad bought us one of those electronic picture frames that creates a slideshow of our wedding pics. It looks ugly on the wall because of the big cord hanging down but when we try to stand it on the counter it’s too heavy and falls down. So it’s now in the closet.
