Aunt Scrawls Angry Message On RSVP After ‘Rude’ Wedding Invitation

Following her niece’s “most rude” wedding invitation, a furious aunt wrote a nasty note on her RSVP, accusing the bride and groom of being “hurtful.” Not everyone agreed with her, even though some could relate to her anger. Actually, a lot of social media users backed the couple.

Most likely thrilled to get an invitation to her niece’s wedding, a woman identified as Aunt Edith was That all changed, though, when she examined the invitation more closely and noted what was lacking. She became enraged at this and decided to send her RSVP card back with an angry note scrawled on it, informing the bride and groom exactly how she felt about the whole process.

Apparently, Aunt Edith was enraged that the wedding invitation was just addressed to her and lacked a “plus one,” so she couldn’t bring her two-year-old long-term boyfriend, referred to as “Uncle Danny.” Instead of declining the invitation completely, Aunt Edith chose to handle the matter angrily on the RSVP card, which she subsequently uploaded to Reddit:

Calling the invitation “rude and hurtful,” Aunt Edith said, “family shouldn’t separate family!” Declining the invitation, she entered her name and “Uncle Danny” on the guest line. She said, “You shouldn’t have sent one at all!” Clearly enraged by her partner’s absence on the wedding invitation.

“All because I didn’t put her boyfriend’s name on the invite,” the post, which shows Aunt Edith’s unpleasant reaction, reads, so clarifying the issue the offended aunt had with the invitation. Of course, though, the story is more complex. Daily Mail claims that although Aunt Edith had been seeing her boyfriend “Danny” for two years, the bride-to-be had only seen him a few times.

Apart from barely interacting with “Uncle Danny,” the bride said she felt his presence awkward and he was hardly accepted in the family. She was also having a bare-bones wedding with a small guest list. She omitted inviting her aunt’s boyfriend.

Most people seemed to be on the couple’s side, saying they should be allowed to invite and exclude whoever they want to have their wedding, while many others seemed to believe partners of more than a year should be invited to weddings. Those who felt Aunt Edith’s reaction was excessive also referred to her as an “overwrought drama queen.”

“That’s a quick way to quit being invited to family gatherings ever again. Yeesh, Aunt Edith,” one woman wrote, while a man added, “Edith needs to harden up” before declaring that “the trash took itself out.”

Another social media user related to the bride, saying she had experienced something similar that finally caused her to have to cut off relations with family, MSN said.

“My aunt did almost this exact same thing for my wedding years ago. Our venue had a 120 person max limit so I didn’t give my aunt a plus one for her flavor of the week boyfriend,” the woman explained. “When she got her invite, she called my dad to see if she could bring her boyfriend. She no longer speaks to us, and honestly? 12/10 best thing that could have happened.”

Some others could see both sides. One such women said, “It’s possible to think the couple was rude for not inviting a guest’s long-term partner while also thinking the aunt’s reaction was over the top.” This begs the question: is there a clear right and wrong here? Should the absence of a plus one prove to be unpleasant, would it be wiser for a couple to completely exclude that particular solo guest?

Does Aunt Edith’s response justify our agreement that that is the better course of action? Rather than merely noting whether or not she intended to go, Aunt Edith decided to mail back the RSVP after covering it with a nasty note. One thing is for sure, even if we can appreciate her hurt over having her loved one left out and question whether her behavior was justified . Her enraged reply had no effect whatsoever on improving or even easing the circumstances.

Aunt Edith and Uncle Danny won’t be as welcomed to family events now as they were years ago. They are most likely far less likely to be invited at all these days. Remember this the next time you feel inclined to react quickly in wrath. “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured,” Mark Twain wisely said. Aunt Edith’s wrath probably had a more negative impact on her than it did on the niece she sent it upon with her enraged RSVP.
