Inspired by the ‘worst wedding gift received’ thread I thought I’d start a thread for people to share the worst or weirdest messages written in their wedding cards. (Because I bet we’re not the only ones who got an odd one in there.)
We have a card that simply says: “Dear X and X, the first 38 years are the worst! Love from X.”
Erm… thanks for sharing?
Anyone else got any odd ones?
NB this thread is meant in fun. Just in case of misunderstandings as can happen on here, I am of course grateful to everyone who made the effort to come to my wedding, send a card, etc, and just thought it might be funny to share the odder messages people got.

Hahaha what a weird message! Looking forward to reading more! Once I get married (less than 9 months away now!) I hope I get some weird ones!

Someone used the rose petals that were on the table and put them in the card to us. No money (which was fine), but the rose petals off the table?!?!?! Strange, but funny.

@Moomin: I’m curious what that even means! Are you 38 years old and they’re implying that your life will finally be good now that you’re married? Or has the card writer been married for 38 years and they’re “joking” about how crap their marriage is??? There’s no sensible reason to write that in a wedding card but I’m still curious about what they were even trying to say!

I’m 31! I think maybe they’ve been married for 38 years but I’m not really sure…

@Moomin: Ah so it’s probably a cynical joke about how awful marriage is. Nice! Short of something like “You smell bad and no one likes you” I can’t think of a less appropriate message to give to the bride and groom on their happy day!

Haha, one of my friends who recently got married wrote,
“Reading these things gets pretty redundant….Fart”
I laughed so hard at this, totally made my day.

I’m a teacher and I got a really cute one from two of my old students wishing me the best marriage ever followed up by a thousand questions about my baby (I don’t have kids and I’m not pregnant). “I really hope your baby is a girl! If it’s a girl, what will you name her? I hope you come visit us with the baby.”
Lol – it was very cute! They were only 8 years old.
