What would you do if a guest didn't send a wedding gift?

Wedding Style & Decor

We've received several emails from brides who didn't receive wedding gifts from a few guests and didn't know what to do. Should they call and tell them they didn't receive a gift? Should they pretend that it might have been misplaced? Or should they wait and see if one turns up in the coming weeks or months?

Some guests think that they have up until the couple's first anniversary to send a wedding gift, and while some experts say this is wrong, if one of your guests think it's okay to wait then there's not much you can do about it. Our advice is to wait and see if a gifts shows up. You can't start calling guests and demanding a present, right?
