Gift Cards for Wedding Presents

My daughter is getting married in June and I just returned over $100 worth of items that she got as double presents. Considering that, I recommend giving gift cards or money to the bride and groom. It saves time for them and also they can get whatever they need.

If you don't want to give a gift card or if the couple is registered for gifts at a certain store, always make sure you get a gift receipt to put in w/ your gift. Sometimes they will still get duplicates b/c not everyone will purchase using the registry or that store. Gift receipts don't list the price pd. but if they've listed an item on their registry they know the cost anyway. Also, good for them to have in case there's a problem w/ the item. At least they can exchange it or get a gift card. Stores usually will not allow that anymore w/out a receipt or have a strict limits on the practice.

I'm not in favor of purchasing anything from Target Stores, especially anything which is listed on a bride-to-be's registry. A very good friend of ours was getting married, registered her preferences with Target, and she got many duplicates anyway. When she went to return or exchange them, Target would only give her credit for the amount of the item at that day's prices although the item had been purchased a couple months before at the regular price.


Target treated her very badly, and we don't deal with Target at all anymore for that reason.

Since a forum like this seems to be the only place we can alert people to certain store practices, this is the place and the time to do it. We need to let other people know about our experiences so they are not caught in the same perdictament. Perhaps Target will get the message.

All the best to everyone, Julia in Orlando, FL

A friend of mine recently remarried. She and He already had the basics and more. So she said if any money was received it would be used for their honeymoon, which will be later in the year.

A fun way to give money is to decorate a small picture frame and place the check or cash under the glass. Picture frames are always useable as well as money. A double gift.

I agree with Julia about Target. I purchased a Swiffer Wetjet and forgot to use the $5.00 coupon at purchase. I called the store when I got home, and whoever answered the call told me to bring it in the next time I came in. When I took it in, the store refused to honor the coupon (I had the receipt showing the purchase of the item). I was not treated well, and decided that I did not have to spent my money at Target. Walmart is right down the road!!
