Cancelled wedding

Have you actually ever received a shower gift back for a wedding that was canceled?

Random question but we had a shower for my cousin a month and a half ago and they canceled their wedding a week before the event for numerous reasons. I know by "etiquette" standards you are supposed to return gifts but does it really happen?

  • I have never had that happen, but my mom and grandma wouldn't let me use any of our shower gifts before the wedding because "what if something happens"

  • I received a gift returned from a wedding that didn't happen. It was left on my doorstep in the night (I figured they were too embarassed to talk to folks) with a very nice thank-you note. I didn't get the shower gift back, though. It was a basket of bath stuff and I just fogured she had already used it or something.
  • I don't know about shower gifts, but it made me think of a wedding my parents went to for my mom's cousin.  She went to the shower for her cousin's fiancee who she didn't know, and brought a gift.  Then they attended the wedding and brought another monetary gift, and the marriage only lasted one month.  They didn't get anything back.  Talk about having a wedding only to get gifts!
