thurstonxhowell: I always try to cover my plate at a wedding, but you can't just expect everyone to do so.
Satanic_Hamster: Wow. Those brides are assholes. And laughing at the gift and pointing it out to others?You don't throw a wedding to break even / make money / turn a profit. What the hell.
space1999: <i>Weddings are to make money for your future</i>Seriously? Who thinks this?
SphericalTime: Ugh, both sides are at fault. Yeah, the bride is an insanely rude bastard, but a food basket? Why not just a bottle of very nice wine? Cheaper, more appropriate, and easy to buy almost anywhere.
NotoriousW.O.P: Laura disagrees. She chalks it up to cultural differences. She's Italian...Don't pin this shiat on my people...
Huck Chaser: If you can't afford to throw a party for $34,000, don't pay that much for your reception. It's really that simple. Expecting to recoup the costs via cash gifts from your guests is as stupid as it is rude.
Aidan: do some kind of tit-for-tat thing.
