    Tomorrow (Sat.), I am going to a wedding. I don't know what to do about a gift. I'm friends with the groom's family. His sister hosted a show in Nov. I'm friends with his other sister, and she had mentioned that maybe they would do a PC shower or something for the bride. However, they didn't end up doing that. They never mentioned the shower to me after that original time it came up. So now, here's the wedding. Do I just go to Target and get them something they registered for? Or do I make up a gift certificate for them and include my website info. for them to shop and get what they want through my site? How would I do a GC that way? If they did it as an individual order, doesn't it get processed from HO right away? How could I do it through P3 so I can control it? Or is it tacky for me to promote my business since they didn't do the shower?

    I'd make up your own gift certificate, redeemable only through you, and add a catalog, wrap up as your gift! I think there are some gift certificates in the files here. Make it easy so they can just email their choices to you. Why give Target your business?

    I'd also put on the card that you thought it would be nicest to let them choose their own gift after they get to open their other gifts and see what else they need.

    It is a tough one for me... I mean why give Target your business...but at the same time they registered for certain things that they wanted, and I know I would want stuff I specifically registered for. ( We got some crazy awful stuff as wedding gifts for our wedding and I specifically rememeber looking at my DH and saying " What the heck do you go and register for stuff for , if people are just going to disregard it and buy you stuff like puke green towels with a funky horn tooting dude on them??" LOL... At least get something similar or close to what the registered stuff was!)

    So maybe go take a look at their registry with Target and see what kitchen items they wanted and maybe order them something from our line that is similar? Or print out a gift certificate for that specific item?? IDK...

    (BTW I know the wedding is tomorrow, but if you order them something it will probaby get here before they get back from the honeymoon and have time to open gifts. Or you can just put in the card that the gift has not come yet and you will drop it off when it arrives. Because ettiqute states you can still give a gift to the bride and groom up to one year after the wedding and still be ok...LOL) HA HA HA

    I think money would be best. In this ecomonmy, you never know what their needs may be. If she wants stuff from her registry that she didnt get she will be able to buy it with the money, and if they need the money to pay for something else they will have that option too. Sometimes, money is the best option.

    I think I'll make my own GC and put a little note in there about letting them pick anything they want. I'd like to make up a new GC, the ones in the files aren't quite what I'm looking for to give at a wedding. So, I'm trying to find graphics or PC pictures that would look good on it. Any ideas?
