    Wow that's tacky!

    On occasions like that I pretend that the mail service failed to deliver. Semi-dishonest, I know, but what the heck - I would struggle to see why it deserved a reply, if they didn't even know nor acknowledge that I had a spouse...

    That's an invitation that would immediately (well OK after a few chuckles) go into the round file, trash basket.

    On the other hand I sincerely would like to invite you all to mine and hubbies renewal of our vows at Heavenly Hope Springs Eternal Chapel of the West. Ceremony to be held at 7 pm on September 30, 2005. Casual attire and the happy couple request no gifts except for money which we will gladly use to refurnish our newish home or put a down payment on a much needed new car. Please be generous as we are having a simple cake and punch reception following the cheesy ceremony. RSVP

    Hey I think your friend is onto something, I'm game!

    This day and age nothing surprises me. Seems like there are occasions for everything and if a person were to go to all of them, they would end up broke. I know on my parents anniversary party we had, we stated that gifts would be declined.

    That's definitely tacky, to outright ask for money. Miss Manners would be incensed!

    I don't need everyone as a friend.

    I don't need to go to every wedding.

    This person would fall into both of those catagories for me.

    That's it, that's the list.

    Its a con! Don't do it. They just can't save money to go to Hawii themselves and don't want to get a loan so they want you to fund it. Go to the party, give a card with no money. Drink their booze and eat their food. Then invite them to fund your next vacation.

    Usually on renewal's they request "No gifts". To ask for money is a shock to me!

    I would RSVP that I would not be attending as my money is being saved for MY trip to Hawaii.

    Everyone here is invited to my divorce to celebrate the repudiation of my vows.

    Feel free to contribute cash to help defray my legal expenses.
