Hi guys! I've been hanging around other knot boards for a while but wanted to say hello here. I just stopped by for the first time and it seems like such a great, supportive community!Our wedding is March 27, 2010 in DC. We are both just a teeny bit under 30, both public interest attorneys in DC. I was married at 21 and divorced a few years later. FI was briefly engaged once to someone he dated for many years in his early 20's. We don't have any kids but we have a cute little dog and just bought a house in the VA 'burbs.So I also have a question for you - my mother would like me to hand write on the invitations that go to people in my family "No gifts please." Her reasoning is that many of them gave me a wedding gift 8 years ago (we eloped but many family members sent gifts after my parents send announcements). I don't mind doing that at all - but do you think it's odd? Is that customary? Thanks!
