Couple stuck in passive-aggressive tit-for-tat wedding invite nightmare

A COUPLE are obliged to invite people they do not like to their wedding simply because they have previously watched them get married.

Tom Logan and Eleanor Shaw have finalised their wedding guest list based largely on weddings they have already attended, regardless of whether they actually want those couples to be there or not.

Shaw said: “Dan from work invited us to his wedding at the last moment and ignored us the whole time we were there, so we have to invite them because that’s how it works. Which sucks.

“We’re also inviting an uncle I hate, Eleanor’s mum’s friend from zumba classes, and a couple whose wedding we went to four years ago who are now divorced, which will add a lovely edge of tension and misery to our special occasion.

“This is meant to be our day. But instead I’m spending hundreds of pounds on people I barely know in any other context simply because I saw them get married so they have to see us do the same.

“Would our wedding not be real if it wasn’t witnessed by other recently married couples? When will this nightmare end?”

Guest Julian Cook said: “Oh great, now we’ve got to spend all weekend at their bloody wedding just because they came to ours. When will this nightmare end?”
