The Ultimate Wedding Don’t

By admin, Published Jun 11, 2012

Whether you're a wedding etiquette expert, or brand new to the game, you probably agree that asking for money in lieu of wedding gifts is tacky with a capital T. No matter how you cut it (or how you go about asking for it) it is simply a major DON'T. And have I got a cringe-worthy story to share with you today!

A friend recently received a wedding invitation from a former colleague (who she barely knew), and inside the invite, there was an insert with the poem below...

More than just kisses so far we’ve shared, Our home has been made with love and care, Most things we need we’ve already got, And in out home we can’t fit a lot! A wishing well we thought would be great, (But only if you wish to participate), A gift of money is placed in the well, Then make a wish but shhh don’t tell! Once we’ve replaced the old with the new, We can look back and say it was thanks to you! And in return for your kindness, we’re sure, That one day soon you will get what you wished for. Please don’t be offended at this type of request, As our day is complete having you as our guest.

Clearly, this couple was asking for money and this was their couth way of doing it. Successful? I think not. Oh but it gets better. The bottom of the wedding invitation read: One keg of Budweiser and one keg of Bud Light will be provided. Feel free to BYOB.

Wow. Ok, so not only are the bride and groom asking for cold hard cash, they're also asking that guests provide their own alcohol! So now I want to hear from you!

What are your honest thoughts and opinions about this couple? Am I being too harsh? Dish it below!
