Getting married leads to a myriad of feelings from the couple arranging their big day. They feel happy that they are about to celebrate the fact that they are going to spend the rest of their lives together, excited that they will be surrounded by their nearest and dearest, stressed that they need to plan this big event, worried that people will not have fun or that something will not go according to plan, and others are concerned that some of their guests will feel as though giving a wedding gift is too much out of their budget. All of the above can happen, some of it surely will, but in this case, we are focusing on the topic of wedding gifts and the story this bride detailed is all about a situation where she was gifted a sum of money for her wedding from a guest, only to have that very guest request part of the funds back a few months post-wedding. We have to admit that that is a little unorthodox, to say the least.
About five years ago, Janelle married the love of her life at a wedding that they planned and enjoyed more than they ever expected. As most couples do, after the wedding day itself they decided to get into the gifts that they received as a newlywed couple.
One of the gifts was a very generous check from the bride’s uncle. Janelle was touched that he would gift so much, but she would soon learn that he wants it back.
