my initial reaction to people who act as tacky as that couple did is to hope they don’t invite you to their wedding. Save yourself some serious money And you and your bf plan a nice romantic weekend getaway somewhere.

And ummm my initial reaction is….how old are these people????  This whole situation is so stupid.  They sound too immature to even be getting married.  Nobody would even act this way unless they’re super young and retarded.


1st world problems….real dumb problems

On the bright side, think of all the money you’ll save by declining their wedding invite and not sending another gift!

That is so immature of them.  If they felt the need for you two specifically to stay, they should’ve been talking to you and interacting with you so you wouldn’t feel the need to leave.  And what if you had to bow out early because of a prior committment or family emergency?  That is entirely inappropriate behavior from them; unless they apologized and became closer to the two of you before it came time to RSVP to the wedding, I’d send a no!

They are insane. 1) who requests a nice gift ?! 2) wHO receives a nice gift then sends a thank you *text*? And those mean texts… Wtf?! The entitlement is astounding. Just be a “no” RSVP to this wedding- life is too short to keep around friends like that.

That’s one wedding invitation that I would promptly decline!

I love how people threaten you with not inviting you to their wedding, as if thats the end of the world. “Oh no! I’m going to miss eating shit food with a bunch of strangers in uncomfortable clothing while your dj plays the chicken dance and the hokey pokey?!?! Dear Lord how will I live if I miss that?!?!?”

I get that guys are different (my FI is still friends with grade school friends, even though they no longer have anything in common) but if my friend sent me a thank you *text* and then chewed me out and threatened to not invite me to their wedding because I left a party early, they wouldnt be my friend for much longer.

This is infuriating! How long did they expect you to stay, anyway? 2 hours is plenty! What an entitled dbag. I would ignore the inappropriate texts, decline the wedding invitation if/when it comes, and seriously rethink the friendship. How close is your BF to this guy? I’m not sure I could be friends with someone who thought it was ok to do that.

They are way out of line, especially it’s not like the couple tried to spend any time with you at the engagement party anyway. Oh the pleasure I would take in declining that wedding invite!

geekgirl84:  I think its crazy someone would expect you to stay long. I am grateful when people can come at all. <br />I can see they might be disapointed because family usually leaves early and you finally get to hang out with your friends, but thats not your fault. Its theirs for planning a crap party. <br />I would never be so immature as to call someone out. I might have said how I was looking foward to hanging out with you after it cleared a little bit, but instead of reaming you out I would invite just the 2 of you out so we could hang out. <br />They are just super immature. <br /><br />

geekgirl84:  I would definitely be checking no on the wedding invite. And declining all texts/phone calls from here on out. How rude of them!

geekgirl84:  That is SO tasteless and ignorant of them to do!  They are supposed to be gracious hosts, you guys went out of your way to bring them a nice gift and show up to their party.  It’s not up to your friends to dictate when you leave their party.  If they are acting this way about their engagement party, who knows how awful they will be about their actual wedding and reception!!  <br />My advice would be to decline the wedding invitation also, these people clearly are not quality friends.  It’s a shame that your BFs friend felt that he could treat your BF that way after being friends since they were little kids.  So rude, and tacky.  Cut them out of your life now to save yourselves the time, energy and money!
