Okay, so.. my groom and I are trying to figure out how to handle this. His mother gifted us a lot of items that are meant for a wedding, but they are not in great condition and even if they were they do not fit in. we are having a Hawaiian/ tropical and modern styled wedding. While we are thankful for them all, we are very much on the same page and do not want to use any of the items. We do not expect her to give a new gift... But aren't sure how to go about telling her kindly these items will not be at our special day.
Anyone else been through this? How did you handle it? Thanks in advance.
