    If you invited a friend a few years ago to your full wedding day at a cost of £140 per head plus their OH (who you and your husband cannot stand the sight of but felt obliged to), then you receive an invite to their wedding but an evening party only that will last for 4 hours only how would you feel?

    No food or drinks - so pay bar that only takes cash, no cards at all.

    They say it's a small family only wedding so not to be offended by the evening only 4 hour party invite.

    They're asking for cash gifts for their honeymoon. Would you feel happy giving cash as a gift for an invite to a 4 hour party with no food and drink? How much would you give? To add that when you got married between the two of them they spent £30 on your gift.

    Hmmm that's a difficult one IDL....

    Personally I would be offended but then again not everyone thinks the same way, for me if I was invited to a wedding for the whole day I would also invite that person to whole day too.

    I find it weird that they aren't providing food either, give me the impression that they may have a really strict budget but even then you would still try to make exceptions.

    Maybe in this case provide them with the same gift they provided you and try not to let it get to you some people are just like that.

    Thanks Stacey. It is tough. I do just feel a bit insulted that in general (not just for me) that they are only throwing an evening 4 hour party at the sort of venue which they're clearly doing it on a budget (think of old tired community centre type venue with flaking walls and mismatched chairs etc) and not doing food and drink but yet still asking for cash for their honeymoon is ok. I just wouldn't ask for any gifts. Add to that they were included in our full day and everything else I said in my first post I feel a bit put out. With the amount of drinks we provided noone had to pay for any drinks unless they didn't want water or wine.
