First Wedding Gift

We got our first actual wedding gift in the mail yesterday.  My dad and step-mom ordered us our flatware set!  I'm so excited because this is one of those things we really needed.  Sadly I can't use it for 8 more months. :-(

Re: First Wedding Gift

  • Awww...that's awesome!Question though...why can't you start using the gift?  8 months is a long time to just admire it!
  • You're not supposed to use wedding gifts until after the wedding just in case the wedding is cancelled.  If you cancel the wedding you have to return all the gifts to their giver.
  • I sort of figured that was the reason...be ballsy and start using it...you plan on being and staying married...the tradition sounds doom & gloom!  ;-D
  • We got a sandwich grill as a wedding/ engagement present from FI's parents a few months ago. There's no way that we could have waited to use it... FI was dying to make a melted ham & cheese sandwich.So we went against tradition and use it all the time. Those sandwiches are SO good. Mmmmmm...... :)
