No matter how cutesy they try to make it is still asking for money. I really dislike asking for money in invites. If you want to use word of mouth fine but do not send me something telling me what to get you. It’s rude.

Yikes.  I wouldn’t like receiving a wedding invite like that.  And unless it was a very close family member or very dear friend I doubt I’d even attend that one.  At least there’s the disclaimer “but only if you wish to participate” included, that helps.  A little.

hmmmm dish to pass plus a money poem? I’d probably decided to be busy elsewhere that day.

The whole parking lot in July (I’m assuming in Louisiana?) just reeks of consideration for your guests.

I absolutely cannot stand the cutesy asking for money poems. So I’d think “Ugh, who told them that this was a good idea?”

I probably wouldn’t go to the wedding.  So tacky!

I have no problem giving people money as a gift if that’s what they want or ask for. I’d rather cut you a check than go out of my way to pick you up some blender that you’re just going to return for the cash. Makes no sense. To me, it’s just money, even if it’s in the form of a blender, so who cares if it comes in the more convenient form-cash?

Now, I’d be more annoyed by the parking lot wedding. You can’t tell me you couldn’t find a park with a gazebo or someone with a yard to host it. That’s a bit of BS. Standign in a prking lot in the middle of summer for some pot luck? No thanks.

I’ve heard the poem but haven’t seen it on an invite. 

But its not appropriate; yes it’s cute but it’s still asking for money on an invitation isn’t appropriate.

Tacky, but other than that, can I just say the first line strikes me as totally TMI?! I know it’s supposed to mean “We share a home,” but it totally strikes me as “Yeahhhhh, we’re DOIN’ IT ALREADY YEAHHHHH.” LOL, I know that’s not the intent, but it does make me think that when it says “more than kisses.”

I also think it’s poorly written.

@misskarianne:  Is she really close to them? I would just sit this one out if she’s not. She can always tell the bride she was afraid of sunstroke so she had to stay home. 🙂
