A bit of tension between the bride and the mother of the groom is as common on wedding days as overwrought speeches and confetti. But while a bit of pre-ceremony awkwardness is perfectly understandable, this guy's mum was determined to take it to the next level.
In a stunning wedding invite that's been recently unearthed on Reddit, one mother of the groom seems determined to make every future family get-together as awkward as possible, slamming her future daughter-in-law and calling her a 'tramp' when inviting guests to the ceremony.
While it's obvious that the invite is written in an extremely tongue-in-cheek manner, it's hard to tell just how much truth there is behind the words...or how funny the bride finds it all.
The invite reads: "You are regretfully invited to the wedding between my perfect son, The Doctor, and some Cheap Two-Bit Tramp, whose name escapes me right now.
It goes on to proclaim: "The overwhelmingly disappointing heartbreak of a ceremony will be followed by dinner, where nuts will be served because whatsherface has an allergy."
Users were baffled by the callous invitation, with one person observing that the invitation's author sounded like 'a pretty horrible mother'.
Others were more skeptical of the invite's validity, with one user asking: "Am I the only one who thinks it's odd that they start at 9pm?"
Of course, as another wisely observed: "If i didn't want a wedding to take place i would make it as inconvenient as possible for the guests to be there."
Real or not - who can tell? Either way, let's hope the mum in question doesn't hit the Prosecco too hard during the reception and say something she might regret.
In any case, the most important thing on the day is the experience of the bride and groom - and one couple in Darlington were keen to make sure their day was kept as 'simple' and 'chilled out' as possible.
Rebecca and Glen Maxwell got married in a £250 registry office ceremony at the town hall in Darlington, before taking their guests to Center Parcs for a carvery dinner costing just £400.
In fact, they only spent just over £1,000 in total for their big day - inspired after Glen, 30, told his bride-to-be Rebecca, 26: "We could get married in jeans and t-shirts and I'd still love you."
That's exactly what they did, donning personalised 'bride' and 'groom' t-shirts, skinny jeans and trainers.
Rebecca explained: "I want to show other brides that if they don't have a big budget, it doesn't matter. They don't have to spend a fortune or put all that pressure on themselves.
"As long as you marry the person you love, surrounded by people you love, your day will be special."
