Weird Things Everyone Ignores About Serena Williams' Marriage
Why you should ignore the wedding list (& what to buy if you decide to go off-piste)
Tear up the wedding gift list rule book and buy something the bride and groom will *really* enjoy (we promise)
You’ve been invited to another wedding. Yippee. But hold on, it’s in Cornwall. Oh well, let’s book a hotel. For two nights. Oh, and it’s on a Thursday. OK, we’ll book the time off work. And look into train times. The costs are really starting to add up now. Right, what’s on the gift list? You want an envelope of cash?!
Hold on a minute…
Weddings are super occasions. It’s always wonderful to spend a day celebrating love. And having a wine (or seven) before dancing with a few loved ones and a whole lot of people you’ll never see again.
But, in a statement that will surprise (roughly) no-one: they sure are expensive.
Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the present-buying part of any occasion – and I would never want to turn up at a wedding without a gift for the couple (I know from personal experience that the next-day gift opening is all that keeps you from a serious post-wedding-blues crash). But when it comes to the wedding list, I’m a firm believer that you should tear up the rule book.
I’ve spent time and money coming along to celebrate your relationship, travelled (possibly for miles), arranged childcare (hopefully) and worn something non-white and wedding-appropriate. And dammit, I’ll buy you a hand painted fruit bowl or a ceramic oyster plate if I want to.
Let’s face it, we’ve all the seen the cheeky poem with their invite to the effect of ‘this is costing us a bomb, so please give us some cash, or we’ll be in debt forever’, and that’s fine – but I say leave the money-giving option to family and give a gift that the couple will associate with you and their wedding every time they use it.
