Our PG Tips teabags are now Tetley. Not keen. Smells a bit like fish.
(£50 a night all-inc and a wedding / knees up sounds alright tbh)
Obviously the concept of paying for someone else’s wedding is shite, but £150 for a 3 night all-inclusive stay seems cheaper than what you’d pay if you were staying that long for a wedding anyway?
Not clicking the link because I don’t hate myself but this seems fine
Have you seen his forum title?
Not sure why people would get that annoyed about it, considering:
- people get asked to shell out two or three times that amount for the cost of a stag/hen weekend;
- you’re probably looking at £150 for hotel and drinks for a lot of weddings
- people are always asking for cash gifts at weddings these days (to pay for the honeymoon or whatever).
Probably a bit shit if you live locally and are hard-up but hey.
How do these things end up as news stories? It’s fairly unremarkable.
Because community.drownedinsound.com needs discussion points to get us through the day.
I think I’m in the camp of have the wedding you can afford.
Yeah. I’m not a fan of expecting your guests to pay to stay somewhere to attend your wedding, but £150 is lower than what lots of people effectively oblige others to spend.
They’re asking people to go on holiday with them. I’d be up for it personally, spending 3 nights on holiday and celebrating a wedding with my a group of friends and family? Seems good to me. It’s also like buying the bride and groom a present :3
So they can then do a phone-in on it on 5Live. (NB - I lasted about five minutes through a phone-in yesterday where they were discussing the link between measles cases and vaccing. Of course, they had some ridiculous anti-vaccer on there “for balance”)
Usually spend close to that for travel and accommodation anyway. Sounds like it’ll be a lovely weekend for all involved and I wish them all the best.
To the bride and groom!
Anyway, I’m sure it’ll be an emotional day for them.
This isn’t going that well so far, might need to start allocating roles at the beginning of these threads…
@ericthefourth can you play staunch-defender-of-unusual-behaviour today please?
@1101010 I’d like you to take on the role of extremely-annoyed-about-this-for-some-reason if possible
@meowington can you be the aloof-why-are-we-even-discussing-this one please?
@Ruffers you’re the wildcard here today please.
Thanks in advance everyone.
No thanks. Ruffers was a prick to me and I’m not very happy about this forum today.
wish it was more money so I could really get annoyed with them but £150 sounds alright
Sorry to hear that
