Definitely don’t go. Or if you do, eat dinner beforehand

I wouldn’t go. It’s surely going to be a disaster.

I’d go to see the nightmare, but I’m mean like that! Wink

(But I would be “busy” for this stock-the-bar party.  And she’d be getting a modest gift that covered whatever my plate costs.)

We are having served apps, a full sit down dinner, and beer and wine. But we did have a “stock the bar” party instead of a bridal shower. I hope that isn’t tacky :-/. I thought it was a really fun idea! This girl is definitely in over her head and needs a reality check. I wouldn’t go!

Hell to the no. Send a card and save yourself the trip.

Oh man, that is such a train wreck.

I think you should go- eat first, of course, and wear really comfortable shoes, but it sounds like that’s going to be the worse reception ever- it’s awful, but I’d kind of like to watch the Titanic go down! :)-

(and I would also be busy for the bar party)

I would definitely go. But I would:

1. Eat a nice hearty dinner beforehand;
2. wear an old bridesmaid dress or something like that that you don’t care about (just in case);
3. Get quietly rip-roaring drunk on self-provided booze; and
4. Bring a video camera.

It will be like Survivor, but with formalwear. Can you imagine watching people fighting over chairs and chicken wings in tuxes??! It could be the event of the century!

@bookworm88:  

I’m with you. I’d almost HAVE to go to this one just to watch the show.

Sounds like this girl has no grasp on reality. How can she think this OK? I would NEVER expect my father to pay for a second wedding to begin with, let alone if he is still paying off the first one. And how can she not see that if she has to cut corners by way of reducing food and seats that it means she should probably have a considerably smaller wedding. I’m sorry to be catty, but I’m willing to bet that she probably has a gorgeous, expensive, brand new dress too.

I’d bring seltzer water to the “stock the bar” party.

and I love nachos so I’d use that as an excuse to attend this trainwreck.
