Bride Asks For Advice After 'Not Getting Enough Wedding Gifts’

The most important part of your wedding? Exchanging vows with the person that means more to you than anything in the world, while all your loved ones watch, right? Wrong.

Nope, the most vital part of your big day is making sure you get all the presents you asked for - at least, it is for one particular bride.

An anonymous Facebook post, which had been screenshotted and posted on Reddit, saw one bride-to-be moan about the lack of gifts that had been purchased off her wedding list.

"My wedding is 32 days and we only had five people buy us gifts off our registry," she wrote. "We haven't received any other gifts. We have 120 people coming to the wedding.

"My thoughts are...are people not buying us gifts or are they waiting to buy us gifts or did they not read our invitations with information about our registry?:

She added: "Am I petty for thinking this? Any suggestions or thoughts?"

Naturally, the Reddit community were left less than impressed at the bride's demands for gifts.

Some pointed out that 32 days is still plenty of time to receive a gift.

"Most people don't buy wedding gifts that far in advance...the last three weddings I have been to, I bought the gifts less than a week beforehand," one person said.

Another joked: "I wish I was organised enough to buy gifts that far in advanced. This seems like a classic 'I can't believe everyone else is not always thinking about my wedding' type of question.

A third said: "'32 days left to buy something' is what all guests are thinking. And they might just give money/gift cards and nothing off the registry."

"If all you are thinking about are gifts, you need to re-evaluate why you are having a wedding in the first place," a fourth said.

Others said that gifts shouldn't even really be necessary at weddings.

"I really don't understand requiring gifts at any occasion," one person pointed out. "Like I invite people to stuff to spend time with them, if they bring a gift, it'll be appreciated. If they don't, whatever, they don't owe me an explanation."

A second said that some people may choose to send gifts at a later date.

"People typically don't show up to weddings without gifts," they said. "If nothing gets bought, expect cards with checks and cash."

While a third rightly pointed out: "If these people are all so concerned about the gifts they might get why don't they just save by having a smaller wedding and buy their own gifts themselves."

Hmm...if you're heading to this woman's wedding, make sure you check the registry (if you still even want to go!)
