That is beyond rude. Why invite anyone at all?

Never heard of it (well seriously anyway. People talk about it as a joke). Hope to never see it.

Oh my gosh! If I got invited to a wedding like this I would be so embarrassed for the bride and groom (and their families)!! I have never heard of this… I can’t imagine anyone actually doing it.

I have never head someone say that being serious! I know many brides who think about it (jokingly) at times!

Why even have a reception then. Why not just have a ceremony & cake & punch

Are  you sure she was talking about the actual wedding and not a bachelor/bachelorette/stag/jack and jill party? I know it’s common around here to “sell” tickets to a stag party or to a jack and jill party… but there are usually 50/50 raffles, food, entertainment etc. So it’s kinda like a cover charge… but for a wedding, NO WAY!

That’s absurd.  Some people have NO SHAME. I wouldn’t worry about offending her, girl needs to hear the truth before she makes a HUGE mistake.

@Carpie: I thinik that if my options came down to that and having a really small wedding, I’d have the smaller wedding. That’s pretty tacky, and I don’t imagine most peopel would respond well to it. I know I wouldn’t!

She shouldn’t do that – people will be really offended. Can you warn her?

WHAT!?! Now I’ve heard it all…

@CellaDee: Exactly! If she does that for the sake of being able to afford a bigger wedding, I have a feeling she’s going to end up with a very small wedding anyway…
