#2

depends. if they can’t make the wedding but want to show the love, fair


#3

context here is the wedding is abroad, and the day after we return from holiday…


#4

How far in advance have you known the date of the wedding?


#5

After we’d booked the holiday


#6

Sounds reasonable not to go. You’re not the best man are you?


#7

Dunno why there’d be a problem with this, tbh.


#8

Totally fine then.


#9

Or the groom?


#10

dramatic pause

It’s me getting married!!!

(no, not the best man)


#11

MAYBE send a present along in your place


#12

thanks marckee. I’ll link 'em to this thread if needs be


#13

Worst, if anything


#14

oh sure, will be doing so.


#15

Are you just hoping for a shout out in the absent friends toast or something?


#16

ooo, I hadn’t thought of that!!!

(don’t you have to be dead/incarcerated to count though?)


#17

you’re totally covered then. a couple pals did the same for my wedding (no gifts but cards and came to stag) and i’m really really glad they did.

one guy however turned out to be a total cunt a year after my wedding. and i invited him on the stag! and to my damn wedding! despite not knowing him for long but wanting to include him as an all round good seeming guy!

so i mean don’t do that. IF YOU’RE READING THIS GO FUCK YOURSELF BUDDY


#18

Dunno mate, I wasn’t there


#19

when do you get out of the slammer dude?


#20

I did a shout out to a missing couple who were giving birth literally at the time of the ceremony
