Invitation for a wedding

- came to just me and DP but follow up note about kids says they haven't invited them because they are limited on numbers, but if that means we can't go then speak to them
- no gift list in the invite. Website says they really don't want gifts but if we feel we need to do something then vouchers
- they are asking for dietary requirements, music we'd like to hear and co-ordinations lift shares
- they have given suggestions for accomodation across a range of prices.

There is nothing for me to be pissed off about or mock! That's not very public spirited of them, is it?

The utter bastards!! angry

Refuse to go on the grounds you'll have nothing to complain about grin

What no poems?

Supercosy Sat 22-Feb-14 14:56:36

They are being VVVVVU! What a missed opportunity!

mateysmum Sat 22-Feb-14 14:56:40

That's appalling. They are robbing us of a memorable AIBU I'm sure.

Still, plenty of time for the bride to go bridezilla though.

Very, very disappointing sad

FadBook Sat 22-Feb-14 14:56:50

Perfect! What are you going to wear? White? grin

WorraLiberty Sat 22-Feb-14 14:56:56

On second thoughts...

Dietary requirements you say????

That's a PA way of calling you fat hmm

And suggestions for accomodation across a range of prices...can you not see they're calling you poor???

Cheeky gits!! angry

FrankieStien Sat 22-Feb-14 14:57:25

Ooooh but maybe they'll do something incredibly crass and rude on the day? Then we can be both shocked AND outraged.

Finola1step Sat 22-Feb-14 14:58:35

Feck 'em. Throw a strop about the stamp on the envelope if need be. How dare they be so bloody reasonable?

Do you know what they've done? They have robbed you. Yes, that's right, robbed you. Robbed you of months of moaning on mn, snarky comments, whatever next questions. They have robbed you of a wedding moan thread of your very own the feckers. LTB.

Utter bastards! I'd be outraged at having to ring them to ask if my precious child could come. They should have been sent their own gilded invitation covered in fairy dust delivered by unicorn!!

WorraLiberty Sat 22-Feb-14 15:02:08

Oh and "and co-ordinations lift shares"

This ^^ means they think you'll be too drunk to walk anywhere and want to bundle you in the back of a waiting car, in case you embarrass them.

Don't say I didn't warn you hmm

They must come on here and have realised that even asking people to come to your wedding is considered rude so are being extra accommodating with everything else.

If you believe what you read on here then even getting married in the first place makes you entitled. How dare people pay thousands of pounds to feed you, get you pissed, provide entertainment yet point you in the right direction of an appropriate gift. How fucking dare they! grin

TheWoollybacksWife Sat 22-Feb-14 15:06:51

I think you need to check if there is a dress code for the wedding. Outfits woven from unicorn hair? Fascinations fashioned from did feathers?

Stag/Hen do? A weekend on the moon, perhaps?

TheWoollybacksWife Sat 22-Feb-14 15:07:34

Bloody autocorrect. Dodo feathers grin

Talk to them, advise on menus and entertainment, arrange your own accommodation? Can't you see what they're up to? They're trying to get you to organise the whole wedding for them FREE!! zNext it'll be "can you just write out 200 name cards" and "can you re-decorate the local community hall". It won't be over till you take flying lessons so you can drop them off at their honeymoon. Honestly, the vheek of some people.

Gossipyfishwife Sat 22-Feb-14 15:08:55

So they are reasonable, huh?

Then the only thing to do is go to the wedding.........wearing a white dress and a veil!!!!! That'll show em. Utter selfish bastards.

WorraLiberty Sat 22-Feb-14 15:09:18

Exactly sunev exactly...

Joysmum Sat 22-Feb-14 15:10:02

How dare they not run it past you what the colour will be. You wouldn't want them to be embarrassed if it clashed with your outfit choice.

Morgause Sat 22-Feb-14 15:11:48

Is there not even a theme to get cross about?

HermioneWeasley Sat 22-Feb-14 15:12:37

That's exactly how I feel......utterly robbed.

I will wear a wedding dress. That'll show them.

WorraLiberty Sat 22-Feb-14 15:17:41

So what to do?

Naturally you must dress in white

If your kids are well behaved, borrow someone else's and give them all loud computer games to play.

Noisy snacks to keep the kids occupied during the ceremony are a must.

Hum the Simon and Garfunkel song 'Mrs Robinson' all through the ceremony.

Photo bomb their wedding pics.

Pre-order a vegetarian meal and then kick up a fuss at the lack of steak/hog roast.

Interrupt the speeches to make one of your own.

During the bride and groom's first dance, sidle up next to them and do a spot of twerking.

That'll learn the bastards! angry
