WTF?!?!  I would be so angry, that it would be best for me (if in your situation) to say nothing at all.

I wouldn’t respond and I would block her emails.

I’d write her a snarky email, with links to the local city hall wedding pricing. And then be done with her.

Definitely in bad taste. I would not respond.

I don’t think I’d respond either. I’d be too shocked to know what to say. I think I would find a way to avoid the actual wedding as well. Wow.

I could say A LOT, but I won’t.  Don’t respond.  This braud’s gone off her rocker…

Uhm.  Wow.  I really don’t even know what to say.  My jaw dropped as soon as I started reading her email.  If it were me (I’m one to just say what’s on my mind), I would just respond saying “If you can’t afford the wedding you want DON’T GET MARRIED RIGHT NOW”. 

Good lord.  It’s not your friends and family’s responsibility to fund your freaking wedding.

WTF???  My jaw literally dropped as I was reading this.  This bride is crazy and totally out of line.

:O WTH?!?! I pretty much sat there with my jaw dropped the entire time I was reading…

Personally, I would ignore the message, and just let her assume I missed it/ tell her oh.. must have gotten “spam filtered” so sorry!

    Then personally, I would RSVP “NO” to attending the wedding, and save her the $19.95……

$19.95?!?!? Are you kidding me? Where can you get a meal for that cheap?

 

If you two are close, maybe talk to her privately about pushing back the date and save longer so she can save properly, and not go into debt, and not ask her guests to pay for their own way….

In my opinion, this isn’t just tacky, but also incredibly inappropriate and downright rude.  Has anyone had a quiet chat with her to let her know that this sort of thing is terrible manners?  I would be amazed that someone (a grown woman) would be so naive to not realize, but maybe she just plain doesn’t know how impolite this is…
