    @Bee Bee – I think you are completely out of line here.  If YOU want to RSVP no because you’d rather miss a friend’s wedding than show up without $50 as a gift, that’s your perogative, but it’s extremely rude and insulting of you to imply that others have to follow the same standards that you are setting for yourself.  To imply that greenleaf is “rude and ignorant” or was not “raised right” and doesn’t have manners because she is poor is in bad taste.

    I dont think its “loafing off thier dollar and drinking THEIR booze” IF YOU ARE INVTIED!!! They are throwing a party asking you to celebrate with them, and just like any other party, the host provides the food and takes care of their guests.

    @Bee Bee – if you were my friend and I invited you to my wedding – it would be because I wanted you there and I would be very disappointed if you replied no just because you couldn’t bring a gift.

    I am hosting a party with food and alcohol and do not expect anything in return. It is a celebration of love and if I invite you I want you to be there to share in our love.

    WOW! I think BeeBee’s recent comments are enough to shut this post down.

    It sounds like Bee Bee is getting really frustrated about giving up condoms and hairspray to attend weddings.. flag.

    I agree with Roddy and Melissa. That last comment crossed the line. Flag.

    I am going to join the camp where I would be *REALLY* upset if I found out that any of our guests didn’t attend our wedding just b/c they couldn’t afford a gift.  The reason that we are spending all of the money to have a wedding is b/c we want to *celebrate* with all of our family and close friends.  If any of our guests can’t afford a gift, we would still want them to come no matter what.  That being said, I think a card is still a necessity… and I kind of feel like people who don’t give a gift *OR* a card are pretty much just being lazy.

    This past fall my fiance was unemployed, so we were really strapped for cash.  We flew across the country to attend a friend’s wedding and we paid for accommodations on top of that.  Did we bring a gift?  No.  Did we bring a card?  Yes.  I think our friend knows that we have always been generous gift givers, but we were not in the right place financially to give any gift at all at that point in time.  This spring, once Fiance started working again, we finally did get around to sending a gift.  They say you have a year afterall, right?

    Wow who is being ignorant now? It seems once again people have to act like children when it comes to differing opinions. This is gross it really is.

    People can say or think what they want about me or how I was raised. I have a little more confidence in myself to not give a damn what people think! So yes, if a situation falls upon me and all I can give is a card, deal with it. Also call BS all you want, I do not give a damn about gifts and DID NOT care when we did not receive any or even a card. That wasn’t the point for me.
