Months of planning and preparations goes behind the big day and every bride just wants their perfect day to run seamlessly and according to plan.
One bride ensured that all her guests will be well aware of the rundown of her big day by sending out a two page letter to all her guests detailing all the dos and don’ts for her wedding.
The pages were shared to the Facebook group entitled “That’s It, I’m Wedding Shaming” and this bride holds nothing back to ensure her day runs smoothly.
The woman starts off her letter by apologising for getting her invitations out late and gives her loved ones an update on the alternative ways her guests can be a part of her big day through a Facebook Live, if they can’t make it where the entire wedding will be live-streamed.
The bride states the dress code very clearly by expressing that no guests are to wear anything that is a champagne or pink colour as the bride’s dress is a blush pink featuring rose gold details. “I don’t care if you wear any other colour, even white is OK,” she explains.
She follows on with her second P.S explaining the types of desserts that will be served, “The reception will serve four types of cookies: ginger snap, chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and Pb,” she states. “We will have both cupcakes and regular cake for the wedding cake. The main intention was easy portion for children but all are welcome. We will also have regular and almond milk for dunking. Almond milk will be unsweetened vanilla since cookies are sweet enough.”
The bride finishes this paragraph off with a kind yet direct note that “It is a small reception so there is not a lot of food. Please eat something before arriving”.
She then continued on with another two more P.S’s explaining the details of her potluck and honeymoon fund donations will be updated to Facebook.
The final tip of this letter was the cherry on top of this structured and ordered cake, ruling out the strict instructions for guests to RSVP. “P.P.P.P.S.,” she begins, “If you do not respond to the RSVP email found on the back on the invite, we will not have a chair for you at the ceremony and you can not stay at the reception. My MC WILL ask you to leave. … Still RSVP even if you have told me in person yes or no, I will only stand by what I receive in email. No surprise show-ups are welcome. If you intend on surprising me [or my fiancé] alert opposite spouse.”
Some guests reading this letter left the Facebook group and some were left confused and total disbelief.
“It seems like this could have been accomplished more clearly in about six bullet points instead of this stream consciousness mess” one commenter made.
“Feel like I deserve an invite to the wedding after taking all the time to read that letter” another wrote.
We get it, the stress of your wedding is enormous and we all want everything to go perfectly but is this taking it too far? What do you think Fairies?
