Stand By Wedding Guest


We’ve all heard of A list wedding guests . . . the friends and family you definitely have to invite to a wedding. Then you have B list wedding guests, the friends you love and they barely made the cut. Tom Kelly has invented a new class of wedding guests: Standby Wedding Guests.

Who Should Call?

IHateWeddings.com creator Tom Kelly answers an e-mail from a reader:

I need to know if I should of called my sister after she walked out of my daughter's wedding. No explanation, nothing.

We went to sit down and I was told that she left with her son, (who is 26) The next day I hosted a brunch, at the hotel for guests that were staying.

She keeps telling my mom that etiquette says, I should have called, to find out why she left.

I feel that she should tell me why she left. It was very hurtful, and expensive paying for two dinners that were not eaten. That is besides the point.

I need to settle this. Thanks.

Signed,
Mrs. J

Sent Them A Bill

My friend "Bob" had someone RSVP to his wedding. They did not show up for the wedding. He and his wife sent them a bill for their plate. What do you think of this?

Help Me With My Wedding Invite

This I Hate Weddings.com reader needs help writing her invite. She wrote me a note asking for help:

“My problem isn't my parents. They are the one thing normal. This is my second marriage and I kept [my ex’s] last name. Many people don't even recognize my [maiden] name as me. So what or how do I write all that. My fiance’s mother passed away last year, so how do you honor her memory in the invitation? Also his ex-stepmother (divorced) will be there. My fiance is mostly paying for the wedding. My parents and I are chipping in.

Her question was originally posted on this Article: Invitation Nation.

Getting Married On A Sibling's Birthday

Here is an email from an IHateWeddings.com reader: “What happens when you sacrifice your birthday so your brother can celebrate his anniversary every year on your birthday? I find that a stab in the back.”

We talk about Thunderstealing a lot at IHateWeddings.com. This is the ultimate case of Thunderstealing. This is a moment of Thunderstealing that is a lifetime in the making.

Here is a new IHateWeddings.com rule: You are not allowed to get married on your unmarried siblings’ birthdays. Especially if it looks like your unmarried sibling will never get married. That means for the rest of your life your spinster sister’s special day will be overshadowed by your anniversary.

And don’t pray for your brother to get divorced. Then instead of your birthday and his anniversary being the happiest day of your brother’s life, it will be the worst day of his life.

While your family is singing you “Happy Birthday” they’ll secretly be feeling bad for your divorced brother.

What's your opinion? We'd like to know?

Hate Mail: Reply To Don't Give A Gift

My favorite part about this web-site is the comment board. There are some people who simply just aren't smart enough to figure out that this web-site was written by a comedian.

But what I find unique about this particular piece of hate mail is this guy thinks that being a rude wedding guest makes you a "cheap liberal."

This particular rant is written by a guy named "57 States" who was offended by my article suggesting that wedding guests should unite and stop giving wedding gifts.

What Should I Do?

I went to my friend Matt and Lorin’s wedding this week. I just got this email from them:

"We got a wedding card with congratulations on front of envelope and it just said Matt on inside with cash. Was this from you?"

I didn't give a gift yet. Would it be wrong if I said "Yes, the envelope is from me."?

What should I do?

Signed,
Frankie C.

I Love Weddings Dot Com

I’m always complaining about how much I Hate Weddings. I don't every wedding I've attended. In fact there were a few I liked quite a bit. In an effort to be positive, I thought I would write a post about the 10 elements of a wedding that would make me love a wedding.

Are Destination Weddings Self-Centered?

Here is an e-mail I got from a woman named "Tina" about how upset she is that she has to drag her entire family to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a destination wedding. Are destination weddings the most self-centered way to get married?
