The person who posted the original thread (no children at wedding) was asking a serious question. Most people didnt agree with her but I dont see that it was so outlandish to be made fun of?

Wasn't it decided in the last thread that it isn't the OP wedding. I think you need to lighten up.

FFS, people, it's not like Brian's a CAMEL. Now, there would be a problem.

Have been LMAO all day.  

Its the B & Gs wedding, they get to decided who comes as unfair as it seems to you.  Your Aplaca is not the center of the universe you know.   Maybe they dont want an Alpaca sticking its neck in and ruining all the photos.

BF Alpacas should always be an exception!!!!

Oh I can see the issue. If Brian was a camel, I hope there wouldnt be too much cameltoe on show. Nothing like a wedding guest with too much cameltoe on show to cause a stir.

but a camel stores water, eliminating the need for BF and the terrible offending boob slip that may occur

That's just not on!
A well positioned Jumping Castle would have kept Brian out of the bride's hair all day!
Her loss!

Posted 13 April 2012 - 10:10 PM

Perhaps the bride is worried that Brian won't have an appropriately soshal party dress and will attempt to wear a shopping dress to the wedding.  No Bride wants the tone of her wedding lower.  But would it kill her to ask you ?!?!?! For all she knows, Brian has a super dooper flouncing soshal dress he is dying to wear to a wedding....

*goes off to huff on OPs behalf about self-absorbed brides who can't think outside the box zoo*

Okay, it's time to pass the hat around for donations to Help Brian Attend The Wedding Fund. Maybe we will make it specific gift vouchers so we can all dictate exactly how it is to be spent so none of it ends up in the wishing well.

I'm sorry if I've missed it, but is Brian toilet trained?  Is that the problem?

OP you need to think of your cholesterol !  Kick them to the kerb.  They are so not worth it.  Be the bigger person, hold your head as high as an alpaca and walk away.  

Take Brian for a walk instead.  I am sure he will enjoy some quality time with you.

Love all the EB cliches!  I keep laughing out loud and my husband wants to know why. This is just one of those threads that I can't explain!

#140 the.supers

Posted 14 April 2012 - 12:01 AM

If Brian is as well behaved as you say, I would just turn up with him. That's not unreasonable at all. Just make sure you have him safely secured in his 5 point harnessed seat  - definitely no popping in to the limo - and you should be ok shrug.gif  Then let the Bride show her ungracious side to everyone. If she chooses to make a fuss and demand that he leave, that's her loss.  No organic vegetable dyed alpaca wool hand crocheted flowers for her.   biggrin.gif

#141 TopsyTurvy

Op if you can't take Brian, could you take your 3 times removed cousin?  You know the one called "Alfred Packer"
As long as he is properly attired the bride will never know!!

Alpaca my bags - hilarious  LOL

What a bridezilla.  The best thing about weddings is seeing all the little alpacas on the dance floor sliding around on their knees!

#143 JupitersMoon

Posted 14 April 2012 - 08:32 AM

See, now what I would have done is just NOT asked about Brian - I mean the invite doesn't say you can't bring him, so it was fair to assume he could come.  She couldn't very well turn him away at the door, when he's all dressed up and cute as a button!

#144 katpaws

Posted 14 April 2012 - 08:38 AM

Is the alpaca a companion animal or a seeing eye alpaca?  I think under the Disability Discrimation Act you can't stop animal assistants from events or buildings. I think maybe you should give HREOC a call.

Today Tonight or A Current Affair might be your next avenue. I would hate to think that other people (well, alpacas) are being discrimated against in this way and i think that Brian would make an excellent test case. I think that this is an issue that we all should get behind, because who will be discrimated against next?

I think to make the most of the opportunity of appearing on Today Tonight and A Current Affair, we should form a general support group for companion animals who are not invited to formal occasions.
Take this opportunity to show the people of Australia that co-sleeping, breast-feed alpacas are just one down trodden group. .. I'm sure there are many dogs, cats, horses, gold fish who are never included in invitations.
Stand up to the tyranny I say!

AH there is a sense of humour on EB, this one made me laugh at loud. The girls at work wondered what I was reading.
Of course Brain should go and if he is dressed up as cute as a button, the bride can hardly turn him away, if she does how dare she, Alpaca discrimination, surely it could become a test case!

This is hilarious!!!

I don't know why the lack of rights for companion animals with regards to formal events is any cause for hilarity. wink.gif

Did you mention to the bride about the possibility for Alpaca Parking?  It might sway her...
