One of my husband’s colleagues is getting married next year. He has started verbally inviting guests. One of his friend’s who he has known for quite some time has been trying to decide whether to go or not. The wedding is 3 hours drive away and he isn’t sure he can make that trip as he doesn’t drive, pay for accommodation, present etc.
The Groom to be came up to him a couple of days later and said ‘so what are you giving us for a wedding present?’
I was so disappointed by this comment as I believe it shows they are getting married for all the wrong reasons. What happened to getting married for love? You invite guests to share in your special day not because of what you can get from them.
What’s your view?
