Wedding Etiquette


#2083

Cant believe any of you even clicked in to watch it. Cant think of anything I’d want to watch less than an “hilarious” best mans speech, by someone, about someone, you don’t even fucking know. I struggle to get through the ones I do fucking know. Say the thank you’s and move the fuck on, its not about you mate.


#2084

You’re right, mate. I’m very angry with myself.


#2085

Id say if you could cover the wedding and associated costs out of it you would be doing well


#2086

Lasted about 1m20s myself and exited for much the same reason as yourself


#2087

I couldn’t say


#2088

Was that not the entire crux of the best mans joke?


#2089

We didn’t even get near it but we knew that before we started.


#2090

If you see the word “Hilarious” in a headline you should know better than to click into it at this stage.


#2091

I got married in the teeth of a vicious recession so got a good deal at the time


#2092

Especially if its in inverted commas like that. Thats a real giveaway.


#2093

It’s the hidden costs that are a cunt.

Flowers and the likes.

Price deliberately upped because it is a wedding.

You would learn from going through it once but the thing is you probably won’t go through it again!

And the horse has bolted of course.


#2094

Someone probably gave him a house as a wedding present


#2095

One of the best moments in life in terms of a wedding is the realisation that someone cannot attend but have put €50 in an envelope for you.


#2096

I actually cringed reading that.


#2097

You should get something for that constipation mate.


#2098

I’m grand pal. I’ve just had a very successful evacuation


#2099

Free money

He got the meal at €50 a head and I’ve had worse wedding meals let me tell you.

260 × €50 = €13k
If we assume average gift was €100 that’s €26k.
I know they got very generous gifts from both sets of parents amounting to well over €10k. Then wealthy guests or uncle’s/aunt’s might give a few hundred. They raked in over €45k it’s fair to say.

That leaves €32k to cover band, flowrers, photos etc and you can see how he easily got €20k profit out of it.


#2101

At a time when you are handing over cash for stuff you’ve lost track of completely.

It’s like water in a desert.


#2102

Easy get 20K profit when you count 10K given by each set of parents. Or was it 10K total?
