I get invited to weddings, I peel the stamps off the RSVPs and use them on my bills.
I like this.
I think the spelling is “sacrifice”, though.
Dorothy – Ouch, you have channeled my thoughts entirely on this one.
One of the most expensive “Princess for a Day” blowouts also resulted in one of the shortest marriages I’ve ever observed.
One of the most enjoyable was one of those “Justice of the Peace” types where all attending threw into the kitty and created our own free-form reception afterwards.
The neatest was the Horse Wedding where the Minister was a rider, we rode to the meadow, held the ceremony and went riding afterwards. The expense was everyone trailering their horses there and then meeting at a ranch-house style diner on the way home.
I only accept wedding invitations where I think the couple are well adjusted or oddball enough to have half a chance of making it anymore…

I always just give a Cuisinart food processor. I’ve been giving the same wedding gift for years.
Wow. Just send a reply saying you have to have root canal therapy if you hate weddings so much.
Impracticality is not what makes it a celebration. Getting drunk and dancing like a fool is what makes it a celebration. This counts for birthdays as well as weddings, but you have to be a bit more careful at funerals.
Agreed, Loumo. You want to backfill the grave first, before you get drunk and dance like a fool.
You could fall and hurt yourself.
