You are justified. I’d be extremely ticked off.

Hahaha, I would be so turned off by that. I wouldn’t even give a gift, just a card.

Whoa, my mouth literally dropped while reading this.

We are having a Destination Wedding and I cant imagine even coming up with this idea.

So uncalled for, and so unclassy in my opinion. Ugh.

This reminds me of a plea from the SPCA. 

I guess i sort of admire their… gumption? I don’t know. I wouldn’t know what to do.

I would still go to the reception lol. Nothing shocks me these days. Me and Fiance talked about registering with the travel agency since we are doing a destination wedding. we have not decided on what to do yet. On the same token so many people do stag and does now to raise funds for there wedding and I always found them to be tacky but still attend and contribute….

Sometimes I really wish that it was completely acceptable to call people out on their bullshit, you know?  I mean come on.

That’s pretty bad! I don’t blame you for side-eyeing the note as you read it. That’s a bit off the wall for me.

Ridiculous. I would love a fancy wedding in Italy so I could build memories, but I can’t afford it and I’m not going to ask other people to fund my party.

Sorry, I find that classless. I think it bothers me too bc she tries to be sweet about it and you can tell she knows what she is doing, is utterly wrong.

I can see this both ways. My question is:

What’s the difference between this and a honeymoon registry?

truth is, nothing, except it doesn’t have the fancy URL of an official hm registry site. So they went with the DIY registry instead.Most Honeymoon registries use Paypal anyway, so they just bypassed the registry site, that’s all.

I did a honeymoon registry and we had wonderful responses. The only reason people could see this as more rude is b/c it’s not “officially” a registry, which is why it seems more like a money grab than the former option.

As for the manner in which it was dispersed… yeah, FB is prob. not the best idea.

I like how she gives a brief lesson on wedding history.. ‘it is customary for a shower blabla’ but somehow missed the part of the etiquette book where it says ‘begging for money is for 5 year olds that want a snickers bar whilst in the check out lane in a grocery store’. 

Also: when people say something offensive then say ‘hope this doesn’t offend anyone’ it DOESN’T CANCEL THE OFFENSE OUT!

Example:

person A: ‘Hey, you smell like turds, you look like hell, no one in our group of friends like you, we all talk behind your back. No offense, though.’

Person B: ‘oh none taken!’
