Just got an invitation to a wedding and included in the packet was the wedding website. I get on to check it out, and am BLOWN AWAY by the things the bride has chosen to say on this thing. I get it, she’s funny and wants to seem funny, but… she’s not. The thing has 13 categories and goes on, and on, an on, with a few jabs thrown in for good measure.
For example, under “Attire” she tells us what the proper attire is, then says if we show up in something ‘crazy’, she will not only crop people out of photography, she will also drop everything and personally escort us out.
Then under “Reception” she mentions that everyone is permitted a guest, and “the more the merrier… sorta… ”
I have a GREAT sense of humor and can certainly see where she’s coming from, but for a formal event at one of the more expensive venues in the city… and as my fiance’s “plus one” (we had to ask if I was invited as I wasn’t included anywhere on the invite), I’m kind of put off by these comments.
Any memorable wedding websites for you?

I don’t get why you had to ask about your plus one when it is very clear plus ones are allowed.

@vmec: I didn’t check the website until today. We got the invitation solely addressed to my fiance a week ago.

I’m still confused. You’re a plus one and you’re unhappy… Now I would get your confusion if she didn’t say there is plus one but she does…

@vmec: Her frustration isn’t about being invited or not invited it’s the manor in which this bride is presenting herself to her guests via her wedding website.
The issue isn’t at all really the invitation itself.

@KristenGotMarried: I get what you are saying. Her “funny” is over worked and it’s just kind of awkward. I’d be put off by that too.

Haha wow! I realized you have to be careful with anything wedding, its so easy to offend people… and that girl made it way too easy haha. I saw the front page of one where the girl had a whole long post about what she did for her fiance, when he’s the one who moved accross country and got a new job for her… awkward…

I would send her pics of your proposed outfit to make sure it’s not bounce worthy. 🙂

@KristenGotMarried: ya that sound kinda weird and distastful, i can’t say i have seen anything crazy on wedding websites though. though a bee on here once wrote about a website that a bride posted and announced to everyone on facebook and it was still in progress, over a year till the wedding, and the ONLY thing on there was that guests are not allowed to wear white.

Wow, I’ve never run into a situation like that. I would be totally turned off by it though

I have one! My dad attended a wedding recently where the website stated “No cut-off jeans. We’re paying 60 dollars a plate for you, so show some resepect.” My dad, needless to say was floored.

The only thing I have on our site is no jeans, sunday’s best. Ladies, no short dress or skirts and no low cut shirts lets be classy

I dont like wedding websites in general especially when people dont have any censors on what not to say

Ugh…that would put me off too. It sounds super immature and not appropriate at all for a wedding.

One of my friend’s site says “Children are allowed, but if they make any noise they and parents will be asked to leave. Parents with children please make arrangements for child care or leave the reception by 7pm so they don’t ruin anyone else’s time.”
