When I could not afford to give cash and I purchased a gift I always shipped it because did not want to carry 12 champagne glasses. Call me lazy.
Now that I am planning my own wedding I realized having gifts at a wedding is a pain. We were told by our hall that we can have our gifts down stairs but we need someone to watch the table due to theft. Or have the gift table upstairs near us, so people would have to carry the gifts up the steps then all the gifts will have to go down the steps to be loaded into a vehicle. Which is someone else job. Then it is advise where ever the gifts go for the night make sure someone is there because thief’s are known for watching a house for a wedding. So I need to delegate a gift handler.
It just has me thinking please send you gifts to the couples house so they do not have to worry about all this stuff. My folks and I are not from the area I am getting married most people that I trust are staying in a hotel.
On the other note I am thankful to receive gifts.
