Spin off from the wedding gift poll...  Did you open gifts at your wedding.  

I always thought it was tacky and you did that later.  At my wedding though, my MIL made me open hers so she could show off what she got us...  Pots and Pans lol.  It was very uncomfortable because we asked people to not bring gifts but to make the trip and celebrate with us.  

*we did a small destination wedding that was a few hours away but rented all the houses everyone would stay in*

I'm not married but I've NEVER been to a wedding where they open gifts during the reception. I'd feel uncomfortable lol. I don't even like opening small birthday gifts in front of people

I never thought of it as "tacky", but I have never been to a wedding where people open gifts there.

 I didn't know people did that. Sometimes people do that during brunch.

yea she is pushy and stated to make a scene.  So I was bamboozled into it to shut her up :/

We opened ours after, but I have been to several weddings where gifts were opened at the reception. Those weddings had no dancing or DJ though. I grew up in a crazy church, lol.

Yes. If I could redo the reception, we would not open gifts and we would have spent time chatting with guests. We were young and it was the trend in our area at the time. Stupid trend!
