Couple Tell Guests To Bring Chairs And Sandwiches If They Don't RSVP on Time
When you're invited to someone's wedding, it's customary that you tell them whether you can go, well in advance of the actual date - so they can make sure everything is planned to perfection.
Well, one couple made sure they received prompt responses by threatening that guests will have to bring their own chairs and sandwiches with them on the day if they're late to confirm their attendance.
The salty invitation was shared on Reddit last week, sparking a debate as to whether couples had the right to send out such bizarre threats.
It read: "Please respond by September 10th 2019," alongside the standard 'declines with regret' and 'accepts with pleasure'.
"If you do not RSVP by September 10th please bring a chair and a sandwich."
Some people claimed this was a great offer, joking that it was better than having to eat bad food and sit on uncomfortable seats all day.
One person commented: "More comfortable chair, and your choice of sandwich? Sounds like a no-brainer to me."
A second wrote: "And you wouldn't have to give them a gift because you are saving them money. It's a win win really."
While another user sniped: "Does that mean I don't have to RSVP, and then I can bring a chair and a sandwich and not buy the bride and groom a gift cuz I'm broke (and cuz I'm not eating their expensive food)?"
But compared to another couple's wedding invitations, this is a walk in the park.
Earlier this year, an Australian bride sent out save the date cards for her upcoming nuptials which had a lengthy set of demands for guests to fulfil if they wanted to come to the extravagant event.
First of all, guests were told to save a pile of cash, as the invite stated they would need an eye-watering A$5,000 (£2,700) to cover travel, accommodation and leisure activities for the wedding - which was to be held in South East Asia.
It read: "The wedding will be held over in an Asian country (Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, ect [sic]). One of the above we haven't decided.
"The flights over range from 10 to 13 hours long, usually costing from $500 to $1,100 (total departure and return flights). Depends on when you book."
