Maybe I'm reading it wrong? "I was expecting something like only 10 cards from what would have been a 120 person wedding had we not eloped, so this feels extra pathetic. " So to me sounds like she wasn't expecting much in the way of gifts to begin with, no? **Correction** Yeahhhh I read it wrong. I understand what she's saying now. She's saying all she was expecting to begin with was 10 cards... Sorry! My bad. That's what I get for multi-tasking at work. I read it as, "had we not eloped, I was only expecting 10 cards from a 120 person wedding".
