Wedding Presence

The tradition of the wedding present has always evaded me.  I have ignored the social rules and registered lack of care in delivering a gift to the married couple in the allotted year after the big event.  Why have wedding registries never resonated with me? Do I prefer to give a gift that registers a personal connection?  With this collection of paintings, I intend to reestablish my presence in the celebration of these marriages with these friends.
