Surprisingly generous gifts
Have any of you brides been surprised by a very generous gift?
I planned a last minute wedding and so many friends pitched in and helped out- it was really so very touching. I experienced so much generosity.
When I went to register, my cousin kept prompting me to add some big ticket items. She told the story of her sister who received her entire china set- priced over a thousand dollars- from some random relative they didn't even remember. "You never know" she kept saying " just add it and you might get it"
I checked our registry (we created it after we got married as we weren't planning a wedding so we didn't get to it) and there was an item costing over $500 that was purchased for us. I went to check who bought it and it was some random client of my DH's- a woman I have never met, he's barely mentioned and there she was giving us such an expensive gift- it was such a shock.
So my point: do register for the things you want and need. you never know!
