Amy, 30, and Jason Wright, 31, had the wedding of their dreams Saturday surrounded by 110 guests at a friend's farm in Springfield Township.

In all fairness you wouldn't expect someone to randomly come onto a rural property like that and steal a bunch of shiat in the night, that had to be one of 110 guests and that is pretty farked...

Not necessarily. They had a horse & carriage, 110 guests...not too difficult for a neighbor (even if it's a neighbor 1/2 a mile away) to know there was a wedding. Check out the property after dark...bingo.

However, it *is* more likely it was a guest. "Amy, aren't you going to bring all that stuff into the house?" "Nah, I'm too tired. I'll do it in the morning."

Hard to believe that someone could get that stupid in such a short time.

So this is an etiquette question: If you were a guest at the wedding, do you replace the gift that you gave them? I'm leaning towards No, they were dumbasses for leaving the stuff out.

Trick question, I would have given them a 12-pack, that I would have also drank while nobody was looking. I don't think they would want it back now....

The money is (hopefully) all in checks, so those can be cancelled.
 
Still... dumbass is the appropriate tag here.

It was probably an oversight too. Bride and groom retire to farm house for the night, the could would, and there were probably some miscommunications between the in-laws. MotB probably thought that the MotG had it covered and vise-versa.

Thieves can read wedding announcements too and go after the wedding gifts. Couples are often passed out drunk on their wedding night so they make good robbery victims.

Somebody had come and taken all of the wedding gifts," said Amy. "Every last card was gone, the boxes, the gift bags.

He took the guests feast, he took the who pudding, he took the roast beast. He cleaned out that table as quick as a flash. Why, he even took the last can of guests hash.
 
2012-09-27 11:54:53 AM  
Maybe they did it themselves, then play for sympathy as 5x as much money and gifts come flooding in to replace their loss.

Fade to black

Fade in to them both sitting and laughing while sipping pina coladas under an umbrella on some south seas beach. They clink their glasses together as the camera pans to the setting sun. The perfect con.

There was even a story a year or two ago about a wedding coordinator who actually walked off with a card box because she "thought it was part of her payment". In her case she was just stupid for trying to rob people she knew but at least the wedding guests were on top of it.

More likely a couple of hell raising kids from a farm or two over. Anyone else would have done a better job covering their tracks than throwing the opened cards in a nearby pond.

Depends on how well off you are, your relationship to the couple, and how much you spent. With my current finances if I'd given them a hundred bucks and knew them well, I'd replace that gift.

I'm guessing they may try to get some replacements through homeowners insurance. Now the million dollar question is: if your wedding gets robbed would there be an insurance payout?

This reminds me of one of my hallmates in my college dorms. Never locked his door because "where he was from, nobody had to lock their doors." I was extremely surprised that nobody ever stole any of his stuff. I don't care where you're from or where you are, lock your stuff up. I'm not saying you deserve to have stuff stolen if you leave it unsecured; because stealing is wrong. But, don't be surprised if your unsecured stuff does get stolen, if you are surprised that your unsecured stuff gets stolen, you're just naive.

Heh. I grew up in that area and have seen that channel so frequently that the innuendo never registered with me.

I did, however, find some of our town names funny: Intercourse, Blue Ball, Scotrun (which always looks like Scrotum when you pass the sign on the highway), Bethlehem (right next to Hellertown), Bird In Hand... the list goes on.

Skeptical me is saying something like this. Perhaps not the couple themselves, but maybe someone close. That many gifts stolen from a secluded area with a blocked off lane(according to the comments from the couple/family if you read down to responses)and no one noticed anything till morning?

That's a good question. I think the best route is for them to ask everyone to report the value of their gifts and file an insurance claim. The happy couple should eat the deductible for being dumbasses. Of course since they are dumbasses it's entirely possible that they don't have insurance.
 
2012-09-27 12:25:16 PM  
Maybe there was a family feud in progress? I could see the bride's father or the groom's mother thinking "Hey, when you think about it, this really belongs to us. It's the least [other family] owes us anyway."

same thing happened here in Vermont.
Recently.
I'm thinking it's not too hard to figure out who's getting married when, and deduce the value of the gifts, and stalk them.

I wonder if this was like one of those receptions where the bride and groom made a big show out of leaving for their honeymoon. They tearfully waved goodbye, gathered up into their horse-drawn carriage with the "Just Married" banner on the back, and rode all 20 feet back to the farmhouse.

Meanwhile, the guests watching this little song and dance are left wondering wtf they were planning on doing with the gifts they most likely dropped a pretty penny on.

Yeah, I'm going with the guests teaming up to take back their gifts (possibly to regift them to somebody who will actually take care of the damn things) and left the cards in the pond to throw off the trail.

I went to a wedding 3 weeks ago where the bride and groom hopped into a "Cinderella Style" coach from the Hyatt Pavilion and rode that thing basically up the block to the Hyatt where they had their bridal suite waiting for them. Then my mom, sister, aunt and I started to load up the SUV with the gifts because we weren't about to make multiple trips to collect everything ourselves in our high heels.

Next question! Have your bags been in your possession the whole time? - NO! The night before I travel, just before the moon is rising, I go out and leave my bags out on the street corner for several hours! Just for good luck!

i never locked my dorm room door. then again i went to a private university and lived on the 7th floor. i figured the chances of someone getting passed the keycard locked doors, going to my floor, and try to open every door on a whim, and find my room without raising any suspision was pretty slim.

that said, my roommate lost a sweater once, thought someone stole it from the room and started to lock the door. locked me out while i was taking a shower and got into a big arguement about it. turned out he left it in a friends car when he was drunk a few weeks back.
