Forget these Memories.
Members of private Facebook group That’s it, I’m shaming my wedding They are reportedly slamming a couple of newlyweds over their “pointless” wedding gifts.
The tiny takeaway that has come under fire is two unwrapped polo breathmints, made in the UK, in a plastic bag with a sticker that reads: “Thank you for celebrating with us.”
“Can I please shame anyone doing completely pointless favors?!” The uploader of the photo wrote breathlessly in the Facebook group The US sun.
“I don’t want a keychain with your wedding date on it. I don’t want a bottle opener. There’s no way I want two polo shirts in a pointless plastic bag,” the poster continued. “In fact, I think we should just forego favors because we’ve moved beyond the need for wedding favors.”
The post sparked a heated discussion as commenters debated whether wedding gifts were a waste of money. Founded in 2018, the group has 88,000 members.
One member argued that some favors could have practical uses.
“I used small jars of honey from our local beekeeper. I think wedding gifts are nice and show that the couple is saying thank you in a small way,” someone said, according to The Sun.
“I used hand sanitizer as it was a Covid wedding lol it’s safe to say they were all taken,” boasted another.
One of the group who shamed the wedding actually praised him.
“I was at a wedding that was about a chopping board and a cheese cutter! And they also gave out flats to anyone who wore heels so they could dance during the reception. It was great,” they wrote.
Another person claimed that couples usually have a lot of leftovers when their wedding gifts are “useless items” like plants.
“Like no one takes plants,” they explained.
“It doesn’t have to be flashy or expensive, but it doesn’t have to be at all,” said another person. “It comes down to what the couple wants, not what you want.” Don’t like it? Don’t take it.”
Meanwhile, a father-of-the-bride comically interrupted his daughter’s wedding by bringing a step stool down the aisle for the little groom so the happy couple could come face-to-face during their first kiss.
