Miss Marple Posted July 9, 2012 Share Posted July 9, 2012 Dh's nephew has been living with a young lady for about 5 years now. They decided to get married but want to do it in Mexico at a special venue. They will have a reception when they return. We really have not seen these kids since they became adults and they have shown no interest in us (we care for his grandparents, but he has never visited them in over 10 years). We received a postcard that said that since the couple wanted to start off married life (umm...five years later) debt free, and since the special wedding was going to cost a lot, they would not be able to invite "all the awesome people" they know and love to the reception (IOW we should not expect an invitation). But if we would like more information about their upcoming wedding (gift registries) we can go to XYZ website. They invited their grandparents, who can barely walk, to attend - probably knew that 2 invited guests would decline :D So...do I feel obligated to purchase a gift??? Definitely not! Should I purchase a gift - I would appreciate the hive input about that. This one is right up there with the one where a young lady at church wanted a fancy wedding and reception, but could only invite a small number of folks because of the cost. She asked for donations of decorating accessories for the wedding and reception from those who were not invited (and made sure that we were good knowing that she would not be returning them).:tongue_smilie: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
