Weddings are to make money for your future.. Not to pay for peoples meals.”

Whoa.  I didn’t know that weddings are now charity fundraisers with the charity being the bride and groom’s bank account.  So disgusted.

I’m disgusted by both parties.  To ask for a gift receipt and to say a wedding is to make money for your future is appalling.  The fact that the gift giver had to go on and on and on about etiquette made me cringe.  I’m not saying he shouldn’t have called out the brides and said “Hey that’s rude and I’m offended” but after it started to escalade he should have just dropped it and been done with their friendships.

I think she deserved every bit of his response.  She should not have swatted a hornets’ nest.

@Mrs Canuck:  His response is awesome, those brides are just nasty money grabbers and clearly have no idea what a wedding and marriage is actually about. I hope he really did only spend a small amount on the gift because they clearly don’t deserve anything more!
