Um people probably backed out because the same thing was done to their SOs.”

@JoCoJenn:  I PRAY your gift to the bride is an anonymously wrapped copy of an etiquette book … THAT would be a useful gift, it seems! 

This actually happened at a wedding I went to–someone gave the bride an etiquette book! She needed it…..

OP, I’d go. Go, eat lots of food, drink lots of booze, and wear white 😀

I’m sorry but your Fiance is the major jerk (and jerk is putting it lightly) here.  Sure she’s a bitch but she isn’t the one marrying you so you souldn’t take everything out on her.  It is your Fiance who thinks this is ok and wants you to go and DOSN’T stand up for you and his relationship with you (Major red flag IMO).  F*** no I wouldn’t go and I’d prob seriously reconsider my relationship with Fiance, but hey, all the best.

@amicelli13:  This is what you do…go to all of the wedding, but since they can’t afford dinner for you. You order a big box of pizza and pull up a chair right next to your Fiance and eat it, straight out of the box. Then ask everyone how there chicken is, and explain how you would love some but the bride and groom couldn’t “afford” to provide all of their guests with dinner.

I wouldn’t go… that’s rude and weird… If they aren’t close friends (which they obviously aren’t), I wouldn’t waste my time and money, which they obviously aren’t either. RUDE.

I still wouldn’t go! Just because they don’t want to waste their money on food they already paid for? Whatever, you’re definitely a better person than me!

@amicelli13:  Your Fiance sees nothing wrong with the invite? Really? Where were these people raised that it is okay to exclude someone for certain parts? I, like a pp, and said before, think your Fiance is in the complete wrong. I personally would not go despite the last minute invite because I know I would be unhappy and would have a difficult time enjoying the festivities. I hope you have a great weekend.

@Mrsdickinson:  What? Really? That’s awful. You were not invited or your Fiance told you?


Some people just truly amaze me …

So this crazy little shindig is tomorrow? OP please let us know how it goes. This was the strangest thing I’ve ever heard of, not to mention beyond rude. Go to Barnes & Noble tonight and pick her up that ettiquette book for her gift.

Hell. No. They should have been more carful with their guest list. It’s not like you’re a new and random plus one! I would have responded, “We’ll do you one better. 0 attendees. A spare dinner for another SO you asked to find their own meal.”
