Wedding Gift Rants

This week I was contacted by a news reporter who is doing a story about wedding etiquette.  In so doing we talked about wedding gifts and how difficult it often is for someone to be expected to give an expensive wedding gift… after already giving an engagement gift, a shower gift, and then spending lots more to travel and stay someplace to attend the wedding.

Please tell us…

Have you ever been invited to a wedding—especially a destination wedding—where you were upset over being expected to give an expensive wedding gift, after already spending on an engagement gift, a shower gift, and then spending lots more to travel and stay someplace to attend the wedding that was  far away?

In general, do you think it’s right to expect a guest to give an expensive wedding gift on top of already spending on travel to attend the wedding… especially in this economy?

What horror stories do you have about wedding gifts that happened to you, either as the bride or groom, or guest?

What other rants do you have about wedding gifts you’ve been eager to vent?  Here’s your chance.

We’d love to hear from you.

Thank you!
