My fiance & I are to wed in February next year. We’re currently making out the invitations but we’ve locked horns in a big way as to the whole gift/wishing-well issue.
My feeling is that asking for anything is borderline rude, while wishing-wells are flat-out crude and chintzy. I’d sooner drink kool-aid than put one of those vomit-inducing “we want us cash” poems on the card.
However, Miss Marx-to-be argues that I’m too old-fashioned. Not only are wishing-wells normal and therefore acceptable these days, they also solve the problem of having to put the unwanted George Foreman grill on Ebay, as well as any confusion guests have as to whether they’re to bring anything or not. Furthermore she says, a wishing-well is a way of re-couping wedding costs as well as all of the money we’ve given to other people at their weddings (i.e it’s out turn)!
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated (please be as frank as possible). If we can’t sort this out then we may not have to worry about a wedding at all.
