I posted in another thread, with update, about my aunt's relative's cash-grab wedding invite. And now my Dad's got one and he's almost speechless with shock.
He received the invite last week, B list guest as he's only invited to the evening do, (not unusual in the UK). The invite was printed on the front and on the BACK of the same card was a `cutesy´ poem asking, (no asking's wrong), stating their need for money for the honeymoon as their wedding gift. My father'd never heard of asking for money before and insisted on reading the poem in full to me, he was so affronted. I told him how it could get worse - my aunt's relative included a fancy bag for the `gift´- and he was amazed.
The good news is that he thinks ehell sounds wonderful :-) And the word gimmeepig is now a favourite. But I can't get over how they're hitting up the guests who aren't even invited to the actual wedding, just a booze-up in the evening. Probably a cash bar, almost certainly no food, very little to do with the happy couple. Just a glorified cash machine.
Ah well, I suppose they were ecologically friendly - less trees died to serve their wedding.
