He looked at her in confusion and told her he thought all the planning he helped her with was his wedding gift.
“She then said that a lot of family helped out, and they are still getting gifts,” he recalled. “I told her that other family members helped move furniture or lend me their car to pick up supplies; I was doing most of the work and was missing out on actually getting paid helping her.”
His sister said although she was grateful for all of his help, it wasn’t equal to a wedding gift and that it would be different if he had offered to pay for her dress or something else.
He tried arguing that all of the connections he offered her saved her thousands of dollars on her wedding, but she said that still didn’t count as a gift.
Since he still disagrees with his sister, there’s now a lot of drama between them. She accused him of being cheap and is getting their family to take her side.
“If I could afford it, I wouldn’t mind getting her something,” he added. “But the cheapest thing in the registry is almost $200, and I’m not well-off.”
Additionally, he’s already lost a lot of money he would’ve made from other clients to help his sister, so there’s no way he could afford an expensive gift on top of everything.
Should he get his sister a separate wedding gift, or should he be let off the hook for all the planning he did?
