When you think you've seen it all...

This is an old-ish article but check out the poem at the end, for people who maybe "forgot" to give a gift. Yikes!

    Oh boy. Public shaming after the fact. I hope they posted it on Facebook to get maximum impact.

    Did I read that right; they're sharing their bank info for direct deposits?  What could go wrong?!

    If you're one who has forgotten

    Don't sit at home feeling rotten

    Just use the bank details at the end of this ditty

    And you can still contribute to our kitchen kitty"

    "It might seem cheesy but how else can you put it? People don't want their wedding to seem like a monetary transaction, so creating a cute poem makes it more personal."

    How else can you put it? Exactly. You don't. If you don't want your wedding to seem like a monetary transaction don't ASK for money (nothing wrong with the giving and receiving of cash for a wedding).

    The poem at the end is gross. That would be friends off for me.

    "Haywood says she would advise her clients to be discreet if they wanted to ask for cash, making the request a short but polite sentence on the invitation or leaving it to be found on the couple's wedding website."

    "Polite" sentence on your wedding invitation asking for cash?  Oxymoron.

    I find it super gross that they are rationalizing it with "intermarriage amongst different cultures."  No, you don't get to culturally appropriate a tradition that has nothing to do with your own just because it might financially benefit you.  WTF.
