That is disgusting behaviour and I would be absolutely livid. I don’t think I’d be able to resist being snarky. I’d write them “Thank you so very much for your generous wedding gift and for gracing us with your presence at our wedding.”

I’d hope they would get the snark.

I would distance myself from these people – family doesn’t mean friend these days. Would you take this from a friend? But anyway – good on you for keeping your cool at the wedding. But I don’t think they deserve a thank you note – not even a snarky one!

Send them a thank you card, with a CD of your first dance music and a note saying, ‘thought you’d like this, since you were so amused by our first dance!’

Send them a thank you not thanking them for the $50 and then explain to them how upset you were by what they did.

Fuck em.

Gross. Avoid them! Send a bland and generic Thank You card and be done with their classless a$$es!

Send them a thank you. Be the bigger person. Their behaviour unfortunately makes them sound like trash. Every family has some of these choice individuals. It’s not a reflection on you, and while it’s AWFUL, do not waste any more of your time on these awful people. I’m sorry. 

I’m sure your day was awesome though! And ALL OF THE OTHER people were there supporting you and cheering you on! Don’t forget the good apples! haha

@mississippiensis:  Argh I am so mad for you. They may have given you $50, but they brought an uninvited guest to your wedding and were extremely rude. So I would not extend a thank you. I hope you don’t have to see these people often!

@mississippiensis:  Ugh just saw what you wrote about that side of your family getting together often. YUCK! I guess you should send a very simple thank you card. And just avoid them as much as you can at family things. People like that LOVE to get a reaction, so ignoring/not giving much is very effective.

@mississippiensis:  wow! what a bunch of classless people…. I mean in how they acted is one thing of many that I wont even address because it will boil my blood (I think I have some of the same coming to mine lol)…but on top of that gave 50 dollars for a family of 6 attending?

I know gifts arnt expected yadda yadda yadda, but COME ON!
