Here's one thing.
I never bring any gifts when attending weddings.
Because theres thousand of gifts on the table. One missing wouldnt hurt.
With thousands of wrapped boxes there, i doubt the newlyweds would even remember which is mine; neither would they appreciate it as much.
Maybe im a lil wrong with the appreciation part.
Our guest house in KB now is loaded with presents, gifts, boxes, hampers, envelopes. And believe it or not, my dad made my brother note down who gave what. Each and every one of them. They were all documented.
I dont bring gifts to wedding. Execption to group present. I have no issue chipping in for gifts. Just that shopping for presents isnt my thing.
With all the boxes left unattended at home, im thinking. If i were to get married one day, can i have this one line written on my wedding card "PLEASE CONTACT THE BRIDE-TO-BE FOR CONFIRMATION OF GIFTS. OTHERWISE, ONLY CASH IS ACCEPTED. THANKS."
This way, no gifts will be wasted and all will be highly appreciated. Its a win-win situation. Hik hik hik.
p/s: Accepted gifts includes Food Processor, Coffee Machine, Vacuum Cleaner, Oven Toaster, Microwave Oven, Non-Stick Pans/Pots, Samurai Sharp Knifes. Oh, for probly a group of 5-10, they can chip in and buy washing machine or medium-sized fridge. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~!
