My Fi's parents were at our house this weekend and they were telling us that back when they got married, it was customary to assign someone to opening the gifts so they'd be on display during the reception. That seems really weird and akward to me. We'd never do that - I want to have the fun of opening our presents. And, it seems like that'd be a good way to either get your gifts stolen, or for people to compare how nice their gifts are.
Does anyone still do this? Has anyone heard of it before?
