Wedding Conundrums Part 4

Suzanne Pollak

Dean Pollak was almost spiraling into bankruptcy with all the expensive gifts she was languishing on brides. It took a chat with Dean Manigault to set her straight.

Dean Manigault told her it was not only unnecessary to send silver and crystal to every bride, and lots of it, but could sometimes be viewed as a bit unseemly.

A wedding gift should be appropriate to the degree to which you are a friend of the celebrants or their parents. Dean Manigault's mother went to her grave knowing that a $50 gift was always appropriate and a $200 gift should cause the bride to write her thank you note before she finished unwrapping the gift. 

Of course the bride always wants something off her registry, and this is what you should go by. Going off mission this time is not a good idea.
