Even though you get to pick a fair amount of your own presents when you get married it's still so exciting when they start arriving. My uncle in Germany sent us this Martha Bowl and someone's gone and bought the nicest cake stand (but it hasn't arrived yet so I don't know who). I get all surprised and giggly about the presents. It's nice to get the things that are going to make our home, we dont have a fruit bowl, we don't have a cake stand, we don't have forks and knives and glasses so the wedding gifts are, as Meg has said, a barn raising.

  1. The presents are so much fun as they start arriving! We are in our early thirties so we had most things covered. We "upgraded" a bit and also got some amazing art, pottery, "off-registry" stuff that is amazing.
