Every bride dreams of the perfect wedding, from the guest list to painstakingly purchased gifts to the stunning venue and wonderful mood, and everything in between. Real-life, on the other hand, is not ideal, and there are no perfect weddings. A significant amount of money is spent on organizing a spectacular wedding that will leave a lasting impression on the guests. Weddings have a tendency to be costly and deplete your bank account. Some people believe that small gifts should not be presented at a wedding reception because they are considered inappropriate. When a couple spends a substantial amount of money and time to make their wedding night memorable and different for their guests, it is especially crucial to consider the long-term ramifications of their decisions. Whereas some believe that the couple should not put so much pressure on the guests for a perfect gift!
When a bride shared her post posted on the Brisbane Wedding Facebook group about how her friend gifted her a gift worth only $10 and how to feel about it the internet lashed out. Furthermore, the bride revealed that she and her husband had both an “exclusive” and an “all-inclusive” wedding. They wanted to make certain that the guests were the center of attention. According to the bride, it “hurt” them and they felt like they had been “slapped in the face.” Thus, in this instance, the adage “it is the thought that counts” is certainly out of the window!
Many people on the internet have been left dumbfounded by this entitled bride, who claimed that a $10 wedding gift for her very elite wedding was a slap on her face.
According to the post, someone attended their wedding and left a “cheap” gift for the newlywed couple.
When it comes to asking for wedding gifts, Elisabeth de Clerck of “Lucy Till French Weddings” is pleased to share her knowledge and experience. “It is a hard thing to ask for a wedding gift and to find a way of asking this appropriately, Elisabeth said and continued: “Every couple is different, every wedding is different and so every wedding gift is different. Therefore I would not say there are any specific rules on how to ask for a wedding gift.” Elisabeth further said, “your guests are already adapting themselves to you to come to your wedding. A gift registry is a cool way to give your guests an easy overview of what you like. Give some options in different price classes, so guests feel comfortable with the amount of money to spend on your wedding gift.”
People on the internet had conflicting views on this bride and her post.
This is such wonderful advice!
It is definitely about celebrating with the people you love.
Couldn’t agree more!
This is exactly how one should perceive life!
Gifts should definitely hold the least priority in a wedding.
“Guest-focused wedding”, aren’t all the weddings like this?
That one is a brain scratcher.
We want some tea!!
Her guests were certainly not her priority!
This is also a pretty valid point!
If it isn’t your best friend who would put thought into your wedding gift, then who would it be?
“Not enough context” is actually true!
People understand why the brides’ feelings got hurt!
Those are some horrible people!
What are your thoughts on the entire situation? Do you believe the bride had a valid point?
