WEDDINGS are a time for celebration, and while gifts for the groom and bride are often expected, they are not a requirement.
A bride-to-be is having trouble with the rate at which her guests are purchasing gifts listed on her registry.
Posting to a Facebook wedding group, the soon-to-be wife was incredibly upset with her wedding gifts.
She wrote: “Beyond the fuss! My wedding is in three months and no one has done it [bought] nothing from our registry yet.
“I expect 100 gifts because I invited 200 people. My parents spent over 80,000 on my wedding and we expect to come back with some kind of thank you.
“My fiancé thinks I’m being unreasonable and hasn’t talked to me since I mentioned it.”
One user posted on a Reddit forum and shared the anonymous woman’s Facebook post, which didn’t garner much sympathy.
Some people were surprised at the idea of someone expecting gifts long before their wedding, like someone who wrote, “Three months??? Who buys a gift three months in advance???”
Many people admitted that they often buy their gifts at the last minute, some even on the day of the ceremony, to get a suitable present.
“I usually stop at the ATM for cash and stop at Target to get the card that allows me to deposit money the day or day before the wedding,” one user wrote.
Another said: “I literally bought stuff on my phone during the wedding because I was at the wedding reception and forgot it by the time we got to reception.”
A third cited money as a gift, sharing: “They’re lucky if they get something pre-planned. I’ve gone straight to the groom before and just handed him money — no card, nothing, because I just couldn’t get around to it.”
“Definitely bought a gift on the way to the reception,” said one final person.
