Unwanted wedding gift sparks war of words - NewslettersNewsletters
Easy Weddings - easyweddings.com.au

Is there such a thing as a gift that’s not good enough?

We don’t think so but this week’s main story is about a couple who disliked one of their wedding gifts (a lovingly selected food hamper) so much, they told their guest so, calling them ‘cheap’ and ‘embarrassing’.

Understandably, the war of words that ensued has caused their interaction to go viral and the reaction has polarised onlookers and commentators.

Is it ever OK to tell a guest their gift wasn’t good enough? Is there such a thing as a gift that isn’t good enough? Surely, it’s the thought that counts.

We’d love to hear your views. Please share them in the story comments!

Happy wedding planning,
Team Easy Weddings
