Okay so the other night I posted that I saw the two different GoFundMe pages for people's weddings (one for $20,000 for a PPD of an already married couple).
And then right before that, FI and I received our invitation to his friend's wedding with registry info being the very first thing listed.
Now I just found my friend's honeymoon registry online. I knew all along she was going to do one, hinted that it's poor taste, and decided to let her make her own decision anyway. I know how the thing works, like they just get a check basically and not the actual things. But part of the registry is asking for everyone to pay their all inclusive fees, and the lowest priced thing is $40. Not saying that $40 is a lot of money by any means, but I know they don't even get the full $40 and part of the point of registering is that you offer things in a variety of price points. Everything is like $40-$100. They'll be getting boxed gifts and probably money from FI and I, but not on that site!
Also I saw FI's brother is asking for even more money for their attire for his wedding. I totally understand that he needs to pay for his own suit: fine. But he was never asked his budget, told to buy a $250 suit, get fitted at the place of purchase (FI's hometown, 16 hours from us), paid for these ridiculous required $80 shoes he'll never wear again, and now he has to give his brother another $75 for a fucking shirt. And of course it's all slim fit, french cuff BS that he'll never ever use again. We're totally fine with the idea of having to pay for his suit, sure, but why did it have to be stupid expensive? If he had been asked up front for his budget, I'm sure he wouldn't have been expecting to pay $400, especially considering all the travel (during a holiday) we have to pay for/ suffer through and missing a lot of work.
What is in the water lately to make everyone so damn crazy? Or maybe I'm the crazy one for finding these things ridiculous? We have almost no wine left in the house so maybe I'm just wine deprived right now...
