Did you seriously just invite me to your wedding fundraiser, dressed up as a "Stag & Doe", and I haven't spoken to you in EIGHT YEARS?!?!?! Are you KIDDING ME!?!?!?!?!?!?

DON'T HAVE A WEDDING YOU CAN'T AFFORD, GENIUS!!!!!!!!!

Wedding fundraiser? That's the most absurd idea I have heard in recent times.

It gets called a "Stag & Doe". They'll rent a hall or something and have entertainment, a bar, prizes, etc. You buy tickets to the event, buy drinks, buy raffle tickets, and so on... then the couple gets a cut of the profits.

It's fundraising for a wedding.

It's disgusting. I absolutely hate it. I've heard of it happening, but this is the first time I've been invited - me, along with 298 other people on Facebook... and I'll bet you anything I'm not getting an invitation to the wedding either!

Sorry, but if you can't afford your wedding, then don't have that wedding. Or don't have that big of a wedding. Have a wedding you can afford!

Stag&Doe + wedding shower + bachelor/bachelorette party + wedding gift... seriously, how many times do you need to give a gift when someone gets married?! RAGE.

Thanks for the warning, it'll make sure I don't accidentally agree to buy a ticket to a party. I would have assumed a Stag & Doe was just a combination of a stag party and hen party, which actually sounds even sadder - that the bride and groom don't trust each other not to have strippers and stuff.

Everyone have a party, daughter has moved back home and is shot of ****wit (at least for the time being). Can't put it on FB, I have her as a friend.
