Bride and groom’s wedding non-invite slammed as ‘tacky’

Bride and groom's wedding non-invite slammed as 'tacky'

It’s the grift that keeps on giving. 

Gifts — be they home goods, gadgets or that cold-hard green stuff — are often expected of wedding guests. 

But a grubby bride and groom are currently on the receiving end of social media whip for expecting luxe loot from loved ones who aren’t even invited to their upcoming “private ceremony.” 

Facebook users were immediately in low spirits upon seeing the couple’s “gift-fishing” invitation. Facebook

“Please join us in spirt,” reads the misspelled missive from the unnamed betrothed duo.

The tactless twosome likely meant to ask friends and family to join them “in spirit,” hoping folks would send a present without being present on their big day in March 2025 — when intimate weddings are projected to be all the rage. 

A screenshot of their non-invitation has achieved viral infamy on Facebook. 

The trendiness of low-key matrimonies notwithstanding, outraged internet audiences who caught wind of the pair’s poorly edited invitation deemed the duo “f–king greedy” for “gift-fishing.” 

“There is no reason to send a ‘You’re not invited’ announcement unless it’s because they expect gifts,” spat a frustrated Facebook user. 

“This isn’t even a virtual ceremony?” questioned another disgusted detractor. “It’s just tacky.”

“If I got this, it would go straight in the trash,” an equally repulsed viewer replied. Those sentiments were echoed by a fiery critic, who said: “I’d use it as kindling for the fire pit.”

Elsewhere, jokesters teased the lovebirds over their “spirt” spelling error, leaving laughable remarks like: “I spirt my drink out” and “I am not sure how to be anywhere in spirt.”

Experts from social platform Pinterest claim interest in “small backyard weddings” has climbed by 300% since January 2023. 

By comparison, as more couples look to organize smaller, less expensive celebrations, the cost to tie the knot in 2024 averages out to around $33,000 — up from the $29,000 median in 2023 — according to virtual wedding hub Zola. 

And as post-pandemic prices continue hiking up amid inflation, Pinterest researchers found that nearly-weds are increasingly opting for “close-knit” celebrations rather than splashy blowouts for hundreds of attendees. 

Tastes for “civil ceremonies” have also bubbled by more than 210%, per the findings, while requests for “dinner party” and “courthouse” weddings have both spiked 150% in the past year. 

But this condemnable couple aren’t the only sweeties who’ve been blasted for trying to save a buck or two on their “I Do’s.”

Angry mobs recently gathered on Reddit to shred thrifty newlyweds for skimping on post-nuptial eats. 

“I showed up to a reception once that only had a ‘popcorn and ice cream bar,’” griped a hungry wedding-goer online. “The reception was scheduled around dinner time, and there was no previous mention of there not being real food provided on the invites or programs.”

A set of unidentified darlings also were roasted on social media’s spit after requesting wedding invitees send money along with their RSVPs. 

The future Mr. and Mrs. noted that a payment of approximately $40 per person would “contribute towards the cost” of their after-wedding buffet. 

But their ill-fated bid flopped. 

“If you can’t afford a wedding,” barked an offended commenter, “don’t have a wedding.”
