Wedding Etiquette - IS THIS A JOKE?!

Recommended Posts

Hi girls... please listen to this story and realize this is only one piece of my strange life.
 

So we are traveling to Florida from PA in TWO WEEKS for one of my BFF's weddings. (Please note, this "BFF" is not coming to my DW in Punta Cana because she says she will not fly even though she has flown several times before). ANYWAYS, a few days ago, my BFF'S fiance said to MY fiance "so... a few of my friends can't make it so is there a chance you'd want to be in the wedding?" The two of them are friends but would never hang out without the two of us girls around. Of course my FH was put on the spot so he said "sure.. yeah of course." I find this EXTREMELY tacky, especially because he flat out told him that it was because his other friends can't come. We haven't heard anything since and my BFF just called and asked what size pants he wears.

Question: Are we going to be required to pay for his outfit to wear in this wedding he was asked to be in 2 1/2 weeks before the wedding?

Thoughts???

WOW!!! That is definitely some nerve. If they had the gall to ask last minute bc his friends couldn't make it - then I don't see why you can't ask them to reimburse you for the pants.

 

Definitely keep us posted of your situation!!

That is crazzy.  Where does he get off doing that? Do you think it was your BFF's idea to do this so the numbers would be equal on either side? or are you in the wedding party?

 

We had someone drop out of our wedding due to expenses but we aren't going to go chasing to replace that one person.

I have to say I dont think it is too much of a problem - as they have been honest with you.

 

However I would say to them that because of your own wedding finances money is tight so you could not contribute towards the cost of the clothes.

I'd be offended if it were me and me personally I would have politely declined. But as it's too late for that I would definately insist that any additional costs are covered by them.

I think it was super tacky of them. I think your FI should do something like dye his hair blue or something the day before their wedding...that'd make for great pics, lol  wink.gif
