@aybecede:  So they’re cheap but like the drink, not much can be done about that.

Not exactly the type I would like to be long term friends with, unfortunately you can’t change people..

But you can rant about them 🙂

Ouch, that sucks!  I’d ask for them to provide you with a case of beer and 2 trays of shots at their reception lol.

@aybecede:  I might just be mean, but I’d find a way to make it known that I knew they took my drinks home, regardless of whether or not I paid for drinks at their wedding. That is seriously RUDE unless someone offered it to them.

I cannot stand people who act as if their consumption is at no cost to you… even worse when they just bring food/drinks home with them. It is just very selfish and classless in my book and I would only tolerate it if I knew they were on hard times and needed to grab what they could.

I’ve been to a lot of events where guests just assume that the food/drinks/decor is free for all guests to bring with them. I was once at a funeral where an older woman had empty containers in her car so she could bring the food home – she wasn’t related to them nor did she ask to do this. The family actually had to argue with her because they needed to bring all leftover food home to feed all the people staying at their house. 

I would’ve been a lot more forward with them – I would’ve made a point to mention to them that I had to pay for what they brought home and because of them I couldn’t fully enjoy what I paid for.

@aybecede:  I’m sorry but that is just plain rude!! If my FI and I have alcohol left over at the end of the night of our wedding isn’t it up to US if anyone gets to take anything home?  For goodness sake its not a free for all!  I plan on offering our guests to take the flowers home at the END of the night but the extra vino etc will be up to us to give to whoever WE want to.  Not for everyone just to take what they want.

@kes18:  +100!!!  You should totally ask for a tray of shots hahahah

@aybecede:  You should put the value of the shot tray & case of beer on your RSVP to their wedding! “Mr & Mrs. aybecede will be in attendance… We can’t wait to get $___ worth of our free drinks!” 

Not really, but it would get the point across!

You’ve already pre-gifted them their wedding gift – they’re lucky to be able to start their lives together with the booze from your wedding 😉

I wouldn’t go to the wedding at all,  personally.  History or no history.
