Even though I'm recently married (YAY!) I still find myself in need of your sage advice.
We are going to my husband's (!) colleague's wedding in a few weeks and I'm looking forward to it. Now, on their website, when you click on "registry" they have a whole short story about how they don't want gifts and instead would prefer guests to donate to this and that charity etc etc.... While the sentiment is commendable, and the charities are very much worthy of recognition and support (they are local LGBT rights related charities from where the grooms are from).... I'm not really sure how to go about this. A) are we supposed to ummm write it into a card? "congrats, also we donated XX $$ to your charity!" just seems wrong...but if it was an actual gift, i.e. say a registry gift, I would want them to know what I gave them - but here?
is it like that time in curb your enthusiasm where Ben Stiller says "no gifts" and Larry David takes that literally and is then the only Schmock who shows up without a gift? I.e. are we supposed to donate and also give a gift??
