Ive been stalking the boards this morning (as usual) and I just wanted to share something for a good laugh. My aunt received an invitation to this super fancy wedding in a super fancy hotel (daughter of work friend). On the RSVP, it listed your PRICE for your dinner selection…
_____ chicken $19.99
_____ beef $23.99
Im not kidding! So do you mail a check with you RSVP or pay cash at the ceremony…the wedding is in June so I will keep you posted on the outcome. So for all of you that are worrying what guests will think if they have to pay for their own drinks or own parking, I say dont stress, it could be WAY worse. You could be asking them to pay for their dinner too….LOL!!!
**Disclaimer…dont want to offend anyone. If you are asking guests to pay for their dinner, then Im sure its acceptable amongst your friends and family. No judgement!**

Maybe they’re not asking guests to pay for the meal, but giving the information so that the gifts "cover the cost of the plate?" Either way…. Yikes!

Oh wow. This is kinda crazy — and hopefully just a result of REALLY poor proofreading?

OMG, that’s hilariously AWFUL! Although, I can’t imagine it’s too super fancy of a wedding or too super fancy of a hotel if they’re getting dinner for those prices. Maybe they advertised the prices to show what a good deal they’re getting? I don’t know… I’m still laughing but trying to be as positive as possible. hehehe

Wowzers! I hope that’s a typo. That’s one way to pay for your reception! Not my way, but to each his own.

Hysterical! At those prices, and the way the entrees(?) are described I can’t imagine that the wedding is going to be anywhere fancy.

Um, ridiculous. You should RSVP with a receipt for your travel and accomodation costs for the wedding

I’m guessing this must be a typo- maybe the result of some copy/pasting really, REALLY late at night? lol!

I’d LOVE to find a "fancy" wedding venue with inexpensive menue options like that! Seriously, all of the "fancy" hotels in my area were upwards of $100. That is so strange, though. Clearly this girl doesn’t read the ‘Bee.

Wow, that’s crazy! I wonder if they just accidentally included the prices? Do they actually expect the guests to send a check back for the amount of their dinner?? I have to hope it was just some sort of typo and they didn’t mean to include it on the invitations…
