Wedding Trend

Whereas once they might have been delighted with a cotton pillowcase or humble cutlery, modern British couples about to get married now ask wedding guests for luxuries such as plasma-screen televisions.

The findings come in a study of half a century of wedding lists, collections of suggested gifts for guests to buy those tying the knot, deposited with leading British department store John Lewis.

Thus the top 10 most requested items now covers such things as top-of-the-range cutlery, flashy bathroom scales and luxury bath towels.

--Interesting!

You Said

I asked for a $200 mixer when I got married. I didn't think I would get it, but just in case...

I got a houseful of weddin' presents I inherited after my wife died and I would trade the whole mess for a plasma TV. A lot of this stuff was really expensive and I was surprised at the sort of stuff my late wife pegged to put on the registry lists here and there. O' course, all the gifts came from her family and their rich friends. My family pooled their finances and gave us a nice electric skillet. I think I will hang onto it, mainly 'cause it has already seen a lot of use, and will likely see more in the future.

Funny, of all the stuff we got for our wedding, I only got to keep what fell off the truck when she divorced and left me
