    If you don't have a gift list and didn't say anything at all in your invitation or additional info about gifts, so your guests buy you a gift using their imagination and creativity ...............if you then didn't like the gift ............would you tell your guest after the wedding you didn't think it was a good gift and go as far as to say it was a rubbish one?

    What would you do?

    What is socially acceptable?

    I wouldn't say anything. I would just be greatful that they came to my wedding and were nice enough to get us a gift. If I really didn't like it I would just keep it somewhere safe and just get it out when they come round to the house.

    If you have not specified what gift you would like I don't think you are able to moan about the gift. You should just gratefully accept the gift as that person has at least thought about getting a gift for you, which they did not have to do.

    I wouldn't say a thing even if i had a gift list. I don't think a gift should be verbally expected at all never mind a specific one.

    I may think it though :')

    When we met: August 2009
    When we announced engagement: December 2015
    When we will get married: September 2017

    I wouldnt say anything. I think i would be grateful to receive a gift. I would maybe try to take it back if the shop was obvious but I wouldnt mention it to the guest.
    They would have put thought into it which is nice and special even if the gift wasnt xx

    I don't think I would say anything, I also don't know what to put on my invites as we are having a party to celebrate, people won't be aiming to the wedding. I was planning on leaving that blank on my invite to leave it up to them. What do you think?

    im not having a gift list as all i want is people to come to our celebration party, we are only having a few select people come to cornwall with us, i hate it when i see the money toward honeymoon slip i think thats just cheeky too. i had a wedding list with my first marraige as i thought that was what i was supposed to do, but people didnt get anything off of there anyway they ended up buying random stuff, was totally greatful reguardless, greatful they made the effort to come

    If I received a gift I didn't like I would probably re gift it- we are having a small JL list and also honeymoon gift list as don't want people to ask what to get us- most people attractive d a wedding and buy a gift and I don't want people to feel awkward and have to ask

    I don't know what to do, we are getting married abroad and anyone there that has asked I have said dont get anything as you are paying enough to come to the wedding.

    We are then having a party in the UK to celebrate. If we had anything I would want a honeymoon contribution but I don't know whether I should put anything because people wont technically be coming to the wedding. What are your thoughts?

    I was thinking leaving that blank but then I don't want people to keep asking either.
