So DH's 2nd cousin, twice removed is getting married. We received the invite which had only mine & DH's name printed on it (my name was misspelled) and said "No children". WTF, who doesn’t want children at their wedding!? But anyway we are prepared to forgive and forget regarding the children issue, but what really makes me as mad a as a box of frogs is that nowhere on that invite did it say “No animals”. Nowhere!! Oh yes it says “No children”, but absofruckinglutely zero mention re animals coming to the wedding.  So I tell DH that it should be OK to bring our Alpaca, Brian, to the wedding, if the invite doesn’t say “no animals” then I can bring him, right? WRONG!! I phoned up the bloody bride to be and we proceed to have the biggest  sh*tfight ever, she’s screaming down the phone at me how having a dirty, great big animal at the wedding is going to ruin her special day blah blah blah and I’m screaming at her that Brian isn’t bloody dirty, he knows how to behave at a social occasion, we bloody co-slept for 3 years FFS!! It’s not like he’s just been plucked straight from the Peruvian mountains! And while this is going on, poor old Brian, is looking through the window at me with those big doe eyes…. He knows we’re fighting about him.. it breaks my cholesterol riddled heart.

  We've never found ourselves in this sort of situation ..... what would you do?

That bride is so friggin rude! Poor Brian you cant just exclude him now. He is an important member of your family.

Tell her to go jump in a lake. Brian is coming and if she doesnt like it tough luck.  wink.gif

Seriously does she think her wedding is all about what she wants? Who the hell is she to CHOOSE who can and cant come! Next she will be asking for money and not accepting the thirty boxes of glasses she gets given! Have to wonder about people nowadays.

I have been to weddings where alpacas have been invited. And let me just say... I would never have them at my wedding.

I think llamas would be fine.

poor Brian.

Maybe you can show the bride this clip of an Alpaca ring bearer:

Outreagous.

I'd report her to PETA (twenty years of stalking appropriate response for not allowing Brian to the wedding? Yes.)

Don't be silly. rolleyes.gif

Poor bride, I wouldn't want some spitting great quadroped at my wedding hocking loogies at the groomsmen!  And are you going to poop scoop after him?!  HA!

I dont see the problem. You can just book Brian into a nearby hotel and you and dh can just take it in turns looking after him.

take Brian but make sure he is dressed appropriately, He should be able to join the wedding party as a paige boy if he wants to. Screw the bride , just cos she thinks the day is all about her.

Have you told Brian that he could go?

If so, then shame on you for saying anything before clearing it with the bride!

The poor thing will have his expectations so high and you're just going to go and cut them down.

I hope you have some sort of expensive compensation planned for all of this because by all means possible, disappointment and anything other than "happy fairy wishes" must be avoided to have a well rounded and peaceful alpaca!

As for the bride ... well, her invitation should have definitely been more specific and included a 14 page legal document outlining the meaning behind the wording ...

Dont be ridiculous

This is a serious situation, which once again exemplifies how people getting married are incosiderate and unconcerned about the obligations we have to our pets.

We have a wedding in Sydney next month - but wont be attending as pets arent welcome - can you imagine? I think my puppies look adorable with their fancy collars on and everybody would enjoy watching them play at the reception - especially great aunt marge, whom we have never met....

But no

People are so selfish

I'm pretty sure this is discrimination or bullying! I'd call the police!

Failing that, dress Brian up in a tux and say he's your hairy, big boned cousin from NZ!

That is so sad, OP. Doesn't the bride know that alpacas are what weddings are all about?

Perhaps she will understand when she has one of her own.

#16 ~LTM~

Posted 13 April 2012 - 11:37 AM

The question is, does she have a wishing well?

Perhaps Brian could give her a "donation"

So inconsiderate!

Do this:



and no-one will notice. He'll just fit right in next to the mother of the bride.

Just don't sit him near seafood at the reception, I hear alpaca's LOVE seafood. Prawns especially.

Maybe if you offer to pay for Brian, then it won't be such a big deal?

I can't believe someone doesn't love your pet just as much as you do!

The hide!! How rude. If you b**ch and moan to all and sundry, hopefully word will get back to her and she'll change her mind.

Just take him. She'll just have to rearrange all the seats to accommodate him and cough up more for his meal. Better still she can uninvite someone so he can fit in.. You can sit in a corner and no one will notice him eating the flower arrangements.

After all your precious petal has to learn how to behave at weddings. Hers will be the perfect one for his first lesson.  wink.gif

I hear alpaca meat is very tasty.

Maybe Brian could come as the main course.

With some tofu.

We had children at our wedding, and one of them brought a teeny little baby Maltese terrier, not toilet trained obviously. I even have photos holding the pup. I would have welcomed an alpaca too! my parrot was supposed to come but he flew away that day sad.gif true story.

What fun is a wedding without kids... Or pets?

#23 LambChop

Posted 13 April 2012 - 11:42 AM

Sorry OP, but I had a No Alpaca rule for my wedding too, just the last time we let one come to a family function, there was a big row as MIL got mistaken for him from behind and given a rub by dear old Great Uncle Bob.
