Bride and groom slammed over ‘tacky’ request on wedding invitations – Daily Mail

2 minutes, 5 seconds Read

An engaged couple have sparked outrage after including a ‘tacky’ detail on their wedding invitations.

The bride-to-be and her fiancé have been together for six years, have a three-year-old and already ‘established a life together’ before marriage. 

So instead of wedding gifts the couple prefer money to fund their honeymoon. 

‘We just skipped around with the steps and left getting married last so we don’t need wedding gifts,’ the bride wrote in a popular Facebook group and shared a draft of the invite. 

The request read: ‘In lieu of traditional wedding gifts, the bride and groom have asked for gifts to their honeymoon fund.’ 

The couple want to send out invitations immediately as the ‘Great Gatsby meets fairy forest theme’ wedding is in mid-October, but the bride said she’s struggling with the correct wording to use. 

‘One issue is how to ask that we don’t need wedding gifts but would prefer gifts in the honeymoon fund,’ she wrote. 

‘Please help, I’m so lost and don’t want to sound rude at all.’

She also confirmed they’ve already exceeded their wedding budget.

The small detail caused a stir on Facebook with many slamming the couple over the request. 

‘Don’t ask for money or gifts. There is no non-tacky way to ask for money or gifts. The end,’ one said bluntly. 

‘It’s so easy to ‘ask’ for money though without being tacky. You either don’t make a registry at all and people read between the lines, or you make a registry that has like two things you actually need on it,’ another said. 

‘This is so easy – you don’t say anything. You just put a card with the invitation that includes a link and a QR code to your honeymoon fund,’ a third added. 

But others didn’t see any issue with the invitation detail. 

Others were far more confused about the wedding theme.

Last month another couple divided opinions after sending out wedding invitations with an ‘aggressive’ dress code request.

Guests were asked wear ‘black cocktail attire’ and ensure they wore no signs of any colour or white.

The bride and groom outlined the dress code on the invitation and following Q&A section. They also asked guests to confirm they’d seen the request in the digital RSVP.

The tactic was quickly dubbed as ‘aggressive’ and ‘unnecessary’ by dozens after images of the invite were posted to a popular Facebook group.
