What to do....

Hey All So I had my engagement party on June 6th, it was a great party and by no means where gifts expected but most people did bring gifts. Now my problem arises with a guest that did not bring a gift but keeps telling me she has one it is just not ready yet. At this point I feel like she should have just never said she has a gift for me... What do I do, just forget she ever mentioned it???

    Yes.  Just forget it.  Just curious though:  what would your other options be?
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146

    Do nothing and forget about it.Your other options would be to 1) say something to her about it or 2) not say anything, but remember it.  Both of those options suck.

    Yep. My best friend, who would have been the MOH, decided instead to take a trip with her sister instead of being in town for our wedding which her husband was officiating. After the wedding, she told me probably three times that she had a gift to give to me/us. Each time, I said, "Wow, that's great. Thanks a lot!" Gift hasn't appeared, and our 5th anniversary was two months ago.

    This person could be telling you the truth. Perhaps the gift is not ready yet, and she felt awkward showing up without one, but wanted you to know she really does have one. I am making a wedding gift for my friend and I let her know at her shower that it wasn't ready yet, but she will surely have it in hand for the wedding day gift opening.
