We heard on the grapevine that some friends were getting married so when one day a posh envelope arrived with the post I opened it with excited anticipation – that excitement pretty soon turned to sadness…. and then a hint of anger…. and then some resentment thrown in.
Why the reaction?
My friend had decided to get married in Cyprus?!? Now, if her or her H2B, or their parents or even another close relative had been a Cypriot it might have been understandable – but none of them are.
It looked to me like they had decided to get married in another country to avoid the cost of paying for their friends and family to attend their wedding.
This would have been fine if they had not invited me to the wedding, but to send out an invitation for a wedding that is during the school term, knowing that we can’t really afford to go was just plain rude!
If she had wanted to have her friends and family at her wedding she should have planned it for the UK – not in another country!
I really wish she had no bothered inviting us – she had better not expect a wedding gift!!
