AgentKGB: FrancoFile: ZeroCorpse: Aw, look at all the little kids in here freaking out over the idea of breasts over the age of 40. Let me tell you, there are lots of amazing 40-something breasts out there, and many of them are better than the 20-something breasts a lot of you cheeze-doodle-covered neckbeards have access to.

She was 43 or 44 when that was filmed.

ewwww no.

She needed to keep that covered up... that was the worst part of that movie.


You know how I know you're gay?

AgentPothead: ArcadianRefugee:

Keep skipping over the part where we took the time to contact her and she said it was fine and then went passive aggressive after the fact. I'll just be standing over.


Keep ignoring the part where all I have done thus far is cite the rules of etiquette; I made little to no comment beyond that.

So, to repeat, clarify, and comment:

* if +1's were noted on the invitation, she has no room to complain.
* if +1's were not noted on the invitation, the guest was in the wrong.

Go ahead; I'll wait. I'll "just be standing over" as well.

If I said more than that regarding either party detailed in the article, please point it out to me and I will acknowledge my error. Otherwise, please show how contacting the person affects anything (the rules of etiquette) I've stated.

AgentPothead: Yeah, I'll make sure and tell my girlfriend of 5 months that she can't come to this wedding because the coont in charge didn't realize I was dating. That will go over swell!

Then you politely decline the invitation. That is your right; no one is going to complain.

I actually contacted her and she said it would be fine. Then she went all passive/aggressive after the event. Everybody who was there knows it is because one of the uninvited guests looked insanely hot in her dress and it made Janet feel like the fat cow that she is.


Ah, I see: I am conflating the article and your situation.

As to yours, nothing I have said changes (heck, we even get to go with my version of the rules and not Post's):

Your invite didn't say "+1". You decided five months was long enough that you felt obligated to include her in this, so you asked if she could attend as well, and got permission.

Emily Post etiquette says "You shouldn't have asked; bad boy. You either go it alone, or decline the invite."

My etiquette says, "If there is someone you've been dating long enough you feel you should be able to bring them, you ask first." So you're good.

That said, the host allowed it and then, according to you, was passive-aggressive about it. Bad form on the part of the host. She acquiesced to your request and then had buyer's remorse; perhaps she'll know better next time.

Of course you ask if you can bring someone.  And specifically tell them whom it is, so there are no surprises.  If it doesn't go over, it doesn't go over.  If it's a big deal, don't go.  Jesus people like this is the first time you've gone to a black tie event...

Yeah I really don't get what you're point is. You are stating etiquette, I'm stating that we followed that etiquette, asked the host if it was ok to bring a date, she replied that yes it was fine to do that, the host acted normal until after the event when she went all crazy and wrote that letter. Then you reply by restating the etiquette that we followed by asking her if it was okay that we had another attend. I honestly don't understand how that is what you reply with. FOLLOW THESE STEPS. Um, we did and the host responded in same. NO FOLLOW THESE STEPS. Rinse, repeat. If you really wanted no guests you wouldn't have said it's OKAY for me to bring my date. You did say it was okay, and then you acted like it wasn't okay. And this is somehow the fault of anybody but yourself? Jesus farking christ I have no idea how he married you, Insufferable coont.

The nerve of some people to invite dates that you didn't personally know... I can't believe that wedding guests would be so rude as to date without getting previous clearance from you! Where have everyone's manners gone?

Sounds stupid . . . unless you bother to include the first part of the sentence: "However, the worst was people showing up with dates who were clearly not invited . . .."

Simple:

"We invite you" means you; don't bring guests.
"...and a guest" means you and whomever you wish; I have little room to comment.

That's stupid because some of the invitations expressly invited both of the couple. For the people she didn't know were dating anybody, she didn't list they could bring a guest. Then she got upset when they did bring a guest. Still making her look like a vapid coont, since she didn't even take the time to ask her friends if hey, maybe are you dating somebody or are you still single, she just assumed they would all show up alone.

That's not how an invitation works. If it doesn't indicate a +1 option, you don't bring a guest.

No, apparently according to Janet and Arcadian Refuge, it's not okay to ask to bring a guest, and even if the host says YES it is okay, it's perfectly acceptable for the host to act like a spoiled brat about it later.

Read my post above yours: I conflated your post re: you with the contents of the article. Also, I was speaking generally, not specifically about you or the article's participants. We simply crossed wires.

If you'll note, I agreed with you (once I got uncrossed), although Emily Post etiquette says you were wrong in the first place (for asking). That said, "Emily" would only point that out in passing; "she" would jump all over the host for being a dick to you after giving you permission. "Caveat emptor" and all that.

You do not invite half of a couple to a social event without giving offense. If the person is not a part of a couple, the plus one rule comes into play. If it is an established couple it is deeply, unspeakably rude to invite one partner to a social situation and deliberately exclude the other person. We are not talking about someone rustling up a  date for a party. We are talking about a couple. There is no way this says anything other than, "We like you, but we cannot stand your taste in partners. Be a dear and show up on this date, but tell the person you love that we cannot abide her." Clearly the letter writer knows this, or she would not assume that the couple would assume their partners should come, too.

There is only one way to get around this. If you know the half of the couple you dislike is out of town, you can invite the person you like over for a nice meal or out for a drink. If that turns into a huge bash, well, that's just how things worked out.

I'm not an expert on manners but it seems like if you didn't really have a wedding ceremony where you could invite all of the people you would have invited at the time of the wedding it seems fair to throw a wedding after the fact.  Given the divorce rate and the fact that money tends to be a huge factor in relationship issues you sound like you made the right call in not wasting a ton of money on a wedding that you couldn't afford.
I say if you want to have an actual ceremony and a reception go for it but it may come off as less than classy if you had a wedding registry if you've been married for this long.  If I got an invite to such wedding I'd get a gift because it seems like the thing to do but that's just me.

Just "renew your vows" and have your party. No need for an incredibly meaningful date, just pick one that works for everyone and throw a memorable shindig that you can mischievously grin about whenever it comes up again.

The nerve of some people to invite dates that you didn't personally know... I can't believe that wedding guests would be so rude as to date without getting previous clearance from you! Where have everyone's manners gone?

Sounds stupid . . . unless you bother to include the first part of the sentence: "However, the worst was people showing up with dates who were clearly not invited . . .."

Simple:

"We invite you" means you; don't bring guests.
"...and a guest" means you and whomever you wish; I have little room to comment.

That's stupid

I'm not sure what it is you are citing as stupid.

because some of the invitations expressly invited both of the couple

So both were invited; no problem there.

For the people she didn't know were dating anybody, she didn't list they could bring a guest.

In which case they shouldn't have brought one. If they wanted to bring a date, they should have gotten an OK beforehand.

On the flip side, it was bad manners of her to not say "+1".

Then she got upset when they did bring a guest.

Righfully so.

since she didn't even take the time to ask her friends if hey, maybe are you dating somebody or are you still single, she just assumed they would all show up alone.

It's not for the the host to ask their potential guests such questions. If you wish to allow a +1, then you do so blindly; it may go unfulfilled, or be fulfilled by someone you might not otherwise have invited personally. If you do not say "+1" then, guests shouldn't bring one.

I mean, this is all simple etiquette.


As a host:

If you wish to invite someone, you invite that person.

If that someone is married, you expressly invite them and their spouse on a single invitation. Married couples are exactly that: couples; with one comes the other, like it or not.

If they are dating but in a long-term relationship ("Bob and Doug have been together for 7 years") y ...


Nope.  It's 2014.

You can invite a married person without inviting the SO, if you're inviting NO couples.  The invitation should clarify that this is the case.  If you do intend to invite more than one person in a relationship to a no couples event, both should be sent individual invitations clarifying that it is not a couples event.

If you are inviting ANY couples at all whatsoever, it's unspeakably rude to invite someone you know is in a relationship and not invite the SO(s).  Therefore, the person you invite can assume that it was an innocent omission, and RSVP with a +1 (or in the case of a poly relationship a +whatever).

If you think there's a possibility that a guest may be in a relationship and you're inviting couples, it's also unspeakably rude not to invite a +1.  Again, it's appropriate for the invitee to assume your omission was accidental and RSVP with a +1.

If you are 100% SURE that a person is single, then it may be appropriate to send an invitation to that person only if couples are being invited.  But be aware, this should essentially ONLY be used for those persons who have taken vows of celibacy.  Otherwise, you should consider that there is a possibility that a relationship exists, and issue a +1.

For a person receiving an unspeakably rude invitation omitting the +1 while in a relationship, they have the option assuming that it was an inadvertent omission, and RSVPing with the +1, the option of politely declining the invitation, or the option of treating the invitation as if it had never arrived and not responding at all.  You are not entitled to a response in this case, you should fully expect that your invitation may be tossed without acknowledgment without violating any protocol.

If a +1 is issued to a person you know to be in a poly relationship, expect it to be treated as if you'd sent a +0 invitation to a person you know to be in a relationship.

It is still inappropriate to attend a RSVP event without responding.

pushcart: ArcadianRefugee: UsikFark: TuteTibiImperes: quatchi: Lord Jubjub: 433: (the bit about the cleavage is the second question, toward the bottom of the page)

The first question is a lot more interesting.

Think that's one of those YMMV things.

Proper RSVP etiquette and strategy for keeping loud drunks away from your party is all very interesting but overly exposed cleavage even 40 year old cleavage I believe trumps it.

I would really actually have to see the overly exposed cleavage in question to make a final determination of course, I'm just speaking generally.

What 40-something year old cleavage might look like:

[cdn.glamcheck.com image 580x768]

Is it still cleavage if they aren't quite touching?

Moreso, actually; the whole point of "cleaving" is separation.

Not only that, "hew" can mean to cleave or to adhere.

I propose calling the décolletage
"hewage" to describe both the touching and non-touching instances.


Point of order: "Cleave" has two diametrically opposed definitions (in fact, I thought it was the only such word in English until you mentioned 'hew'): it can mean to split apart ("With a mighty blood from his axe, Conan cleaved his opponent in twain") or to stick together ("Rose's mouth was dry, her tongue cleaving to the roof of her mouth").

doglover: Who the hell invites people to their own wedding anniversary?

How narcissistic do you have to be?


Her parties sound stuffy and boring and she sounds like an uptight biatch.

marsgwar: TuteTibiImperes: Yeah, it sounds like Coontzilla didn't get to feel as superior and exclusionary as she wanted to at her wedding, so now she's ready for a second go 5 years later.

I thinking who really wants to go to a party thrown by her anyways.


Open bar.

Just try to avoid Mrs Hitler, the organizer whilst you're there.

Teedee: Mr. Teedee and I have talked about doing a 5 year shindig.

The reason is this: we were engaged for years, flat busted broke, and couldn't afford a wedding. We had a friend who was liscensed marry us. In his dining room. After which he promptly went to a club with his missus whilst we watched their rugrats for them. Mr. Teedee worked. I read comic books. That was pretty much it, lol. It would've been nice to have some kind of...something. Ya know?

*Shrug* Maybe it's just me.


Why don't you wait to see if you actually make it to "10."

docmattic: pushcart: ArcadianRefugee: UsikFark: TuteTibiImperes: quatchi: Lord Jubjub: 433: (the bit about the cleavage is the second question, toward the bottom of the page)

The first question is a lot more interesting.

Think that's one of those YMMV things.

Proper RSVP etiquette and strategy for keeping loud drunks away from your party is all very interesting but overly exposed cleavage even 40 year old cleavage I believe trumps it.

I would really actually have to see the overly exposed cleavage in question to make a final determination of course, I'm just speaking generally.

What 40-something year old cleavage might look like:

Is it still cleavage if they aren't quite touching?

Moreso, actually; the whole point of "cleaving" is separation.

Not only that, "hew" can mean to cleave or to adhere.

I propose calling the décolletage
"hewage" to describe both the touching and non-touching instances.

Point of order: "Cleave" has two diametrically opposed definitions (in fact, I thought it was the only such word in English until you mentioned 'hew'): it can mean to split apart ("With a mighty blood from his axe, Conan cleaved his opponent in twain") or to stick together ("Rose's mouth was dry, her tongue cleaving to the roof of her mouth").


Then there's "fast"

Either rapid or completely still.

The grown lady's cleavage is none of anyone's business but her own.

The lady in the other story with the anniversary party is being an ass.  If you can't afford to plan on being able to happily provide for some divergence from the invitations and RSVPs, you should have planned a cheaper party you can afford.  I can't imagine worrying about a few showing up that hadn't confirmed or a few showing up with a guest.  When you make arrangements like ordering food, normal people plan for some of that and get some extra food, have extra chairs, etc.  If you're having to pare it down and figure out to the individual confirmed guests, rethink the idea and do something you can provide more of with less worry.

I think a five year anniversary party of some sort is fine, but it sounds like this lady is being WAY over the top about it.  Five years should be really really casual.  And a 5 year anniversary party shouldn't be stressful for the hostess.  If you're throwing a bash at the 5 year mark, it should be because you're happy and you're the kind of person who is good at/ loves throwing parties.  I celebrate some pretty minor stuff sometimes, but it's because we wanna get together with our pals and have a great time.  5 years isn't one of those milestones where you feel like you sort of have to throw a party because social convention is forcing it on you.  It's perfectly acceptable to just have a nice dinner with your husband.

AgentKGB: Sorry I should have specified. A 5 year anniversary celebration in terms of the couple themselves going out for supper or something, yes. But booking a hall and inviting people and asking for presents?!


I don't see them asking for presents.
