So I was invited to a wedding and in the invite package there is an envelope with my name on it.

What the heck is that envelope for?

I can only assume it is for you to put money inside??

LOL that should tell you how often I get invited to weddings!

I don't think I've ever seen an envelope that had my name on it included with the invite. Usually the only envelope is the return envelope for the RSVP and that would have the bride's name on it. Now I'm curious too!!

Haha - had the exact same thing recently for my friends wedding.. I said to her what the hell is that for?

 

It is for money, she had a wishing well and we all put the wedding cards/money in that.

Was the invitation itself inside the envelope with your name on it? If so, the envelope with your name on it is the inner envelope. I think the idea of them is to keep the invitation in an envelope that's not all marked up for the postal service. If the invitation wasn't in this envelope I have no idea what it is...sorry!

lol umm I believe it would be a none too subtle request for money. That of course is just my opinion though. I would never have thought to do that with my invites though. :-)

If it's for the whole wishing well thing like Kerry posted above, maybe it's just me, but I think that's tacky. I understand that brides will have a card box/wishing well or whatever at the reception along with a table for gifts, and that's perfectly fine. But to actually give someone an envelope with the expectation that they give you money in it is just a little too much for me. JMO.

Diana ~ I would just ask the couple what it is for!

 

LMAO Kerry!

 

I'm so with you Heather... if it is for money that is just tacky. I got an invitation that included a card with a long poem that rambled on and on and it turned out they were just asking for money. I even thought that was in poor taste.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
