Last night I got a text from the groom of the wedding we attended earlier this month. He's one of DH's BFFs and his wife and I are pretty close as well.
He asked me how long after the wedding were we still receiving gifts. The reason he wanted to know was because some very close friends (from that verbiage, DH and I know it's one of 3 couples) didn't give them any gift and they didn't know if they should call them out. He did let me know that it wasn't us, that they received ours.
Now, this really shocked me. Never in a million years would I have thought these two would be butthurt over a gift and actually contemplating saying something about it. They have never been those people. Ever.
I let them know when we stopped receiving gifts but reminded them that saying something about it could be pretty damaging to their relationship and they need to think about what's more important here. I even pulled out the ol' "you don't know anyone's finances" line and I was thinking of throwing in the "they did pay for travel+attire+lodging" but I didn't.
He seemed to get my point and I think they're going to let it go. Hopefully they have come to their senses.
