A fave wedding gift we received was a basket of all the toppings and goodies needed for ice cream sundaes, including the cute service, "just add ice cream."
I guess for the SS bride, no poor students, no one laid off, no one facing a mountain of bills, and no one saving their own money on a tight budget, should share in her joy.
Only the rich.
And, hey, that comment about "no gifts in the past 50 years" cannot be true, because I have been to some even in the past 5 years and there was still a nicely stacked gift table!
And what about registering?
uncouth bride, who way overpaid at $97 a plate, no matter how nice the venue!!
