But things are a lot different there too - it's not uncommon to recieve less than $50 as a gift either. But the dinner plates at not overly expensive - it's all relative I guess!
    I am on the floor laughing... The first party I hosted at my home here with my Dutch FI and me being a Newfie. I had enough food to fed an army and enough booze to kill the enemy and keep the troops happy. He was in shock when he seen the spread that I put on for family and friends 26 people 20 of them Newfies. He just kept telling me "hun thats alot of food, oh hun thats alot of beer and booze". I am laughing, oh is he in for the shock of his life lol.
    Let's just say he knows when my brother and cousin shows up their good for a keg or two and half a cow. So yeah in Newfoundland it's CASH BAR and Yes I do remember getting $5.00 from a couple that came to my first wedding 24 years ago. So funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Worst wedding I went to was when one of my college chums (the groom) got married. The church wedding was beautiful, and was in spanish and english. Total Catholic wedding so it was up, down, up, down all afternoon. But the reception was at this conference hall that had a main area and then a long "hall" that jutted off to the side. The groom's side was all seated down this hall like we were the redheaded step children! We couldn't see a thing. We missed everything... garter/bouquet tosses, cake cutting, first dance... they even forgot to let us know when we could eat! Best we could do is have our own little "outcast" party in the back!! LOL

            "Where abouts" is one way of saying it. Another one would have been:

            "Where's you from cocky?" lol

              Oh My God!!!! I am on the floor laughing so hard. I went home this summer the first time in 15 years and took a girlfriend (Non Newfie) with me and she was freaking out because people were cursing at me when they spoke to me.

              I had people say " Jesus!!!! Where the *uck have you been"? or what the *uck have you been doing with ya self? My friend was thinking there will be a point when Sue loses it and tells everyone to stop swearing at her. However I am going along with the conversation.
              So now my friend and I call each other everyday will ask each other " How the *uck is you day going? Oh the best was when she heard my nephew ask someone "You got the time on ya cocky"..... Oh god I have tears in my eyes remembering her face.
              PS Your wedding day is one year after mine!!!!

                    I went to a wedding on the other side of the country (most of the guests had to fly to get there). The ceremony was beautiful, however after that all 200 guests were led to the churches mildewy basement where were listened to a static-ish radio station and were fed paper cupfuls of peanuts. The real kicker was when groomsmen kidnapped the bride for ransom money. We didn't even have chairs or food and they want MORE from us? Tacky as H%#@!!!
                    The MOG was so mortified that she offered to take us out of towners all to an elegant steakhouse for dinner. That was the best part of the wedding
