Hello,

Would like to ask lang. When you got married, did you all receive gifts from your guests(whether it be cash or kind) or may mga iba na hindi nagbigay ni card lang sa wedding nyo at nakikain lang?

I know this is a shallow question, but any inputs would be appreciated. Thanks!

Not everyone gave presents, not even a card. Hahhaa. At ito pa, may dumating sa reception ni mag hello man lang sa amin di ginawa tapos umalis pa right after eating.  Kaya hindi namin alam na nag-attend pala sila. Nalaman ko nalang na pumunta pala sila kasi kinuwento nya sakin weeks after the wedding na parang wala lang. So I said, ah pumunta pala kayo...d man lang kayo lumapit samin para nakapagpapicture man lang tayo kahit isang beses lang. Nice pa din sinabi ko, hahha. Pero I was really shocked by what they did.

Stop stressing about that though. Iba iba ang tao.  Some people just doesn't know proper etiquette or have good manners man lang. Just enjoy your wedding preps and focus on the love that is the root cause of the wedding.

Dahil kaunti lang ng naman guest namin nung kasal dahil intimate lahat sila meron pero actually hindi ko na iniisip yung gift mas maganda kasi kung nakapunta talaga sobrang naapreciate ko yung ganoon kahit walang gift.
We don't need more laws, we need implementation.

we didn't receive alot of gifts from our guests sa wedding. It was a medium sized wedding with relatives and close friends. We picked people talaga na gusto namin na dumating.

Wasn't a big deal for us na konti gifts since madami naman pumunta and we got to spend time with them. Ang favorite gift namin was actually them saying it was a fun occasion that they enjoyed eating and dancing alot. Sulit na yung stress, parang nag pa birthday party lang ako ng buong barangay. haha

Only a fraction ang nagbigay ng gifts/card/greeting. But we didn't mind or even think about it after the wedding. To repeat what others have said, natuwa na kami nung sinabi nila (either directly or through kwento to other people) na they enjoyed our wedding and found our wedding fun/beautiful. It was more of the guests appreciating our efforts.

If the wedding is more than an intimate one, high possibility that not all guests will even know the couple personally = will not bring a gift.

Expect na lang na you won't receive gifts (or a set number of gifts) para any gift you receive will be a good surprise.

Not everyone will give. Just think of it nalang na you invited them to the wedding because you appreciate who they are in your lives. If they didn't give (or gave crappy gifts...believe me may ganito), just live and let it go. :)

Yes, we do get gifts from all of our guests. Everyone tries to give gift to the couple according to his or her financial resources. Gclistens

We had a small intimate wedding and not all gave gifts.  Honestly, we weren't expecting gifts, we just wanted them to be there for our ceremony.  But the fact that they had to brave the flood just to get to the Church, was gift enough for us.

Not everyone. May principal sponsor (relative) pa nga kami na walang gift. 🙊 Well, ganun talaga. We invited them to witness our wedding and to join us in the celebration naman. Pero syempre, sana yung iba hindi naman totally nakikain lang. I wont mind if I receive a card. Mas ok na yun kesa sa wala talaga.

nope, saka konti lang kasi guests namin, sa side ko: mother ko, brother ko, sis in law ko, 2 tita ko at isang pinsan, sa side nya, mama nya, sister nya, 3 tita, 1 tito, then yung isang pair ng ninong at ninang namin....nagbigay gifts ang isa kong tita, pinsan ko, sis in law ko, then sa side nya, sister nya at isang tita lang din nagbigay, then yun pair ng ninong at ninang namin, cash gifts...Keri lang naman samin, we're not after the gifts naman...saka sa totoo lang ang weird kasi ng mga wedding gifts na nakasanayan sa tin dito sa Pinas...usually sangkatutak na wall clock, plancha, electric fans hahah...or worst photo album or punch bowl set, yung malaki na may mga katernong cups?

saka complete na kasi yung mga gamit namin sa titirahan naming house after the wedding since I never had plans na makitira sa mga magulang namin kaya wala din kami need na gamit...

We had a very small wedding, attendees were just close family members.
No one from the side of my husband's family gave a gift, considering mas marami sila in attendance compared tp mine. Even our ninang who is my husband's aunt gave nothing. I would have appreciated a card at least. A relative of my husband who was not invited to our wedding and might have learned it form my in-laws, gave us a small gift, I appreciated that gesture very much.

sis rics, yes may ganun din nangyari sa kin, actually mas madami pa ako nakuhang gifts sa office pagbalik ko after ng one week leave ko noon for the honeymoon...kesa sa nakuha ko sa actual wedding...may mga kapitbahay din ako na nag-abot ng pakimkim daw tawag nila, small amount of money lang naman, para daw pandagdag sa panimula namin...ganun daw yun para swerte...

anyway nag invite naman tayo sa kasal di para sa regalo di ba, kundi para makasama natin sila sa special occassion sa buhay natin...

Nope only a handful.  But we were still grateful since our guest flew to Cebu for our wedding.  (Neither one of us were from Cebu) That it self meant so much to us na.
