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

OP, I think this situation could be resolved if you invited the Bridal Couple to a bbq at your place. Be sure to tell them its BYO meat and drinks.

Poor Brian. He'll be devistated [sic].

If you do have a BBQ, don't forget the cheese and biscuits!!

It is good the alpaca could put his head out of the window on the way to the wedding. They do like a ride in a car, with the wind in their lips flapping.

I can't believe this is still on topic after so many posts, I assumed trainwreck status by now.

Alpacas are like snow camels.

Will no-one think of the alpacas?

Op, you didn't mention what colour Brian is. Do you think this could possibly be a colour issue? The bride isn't one of those that discriminates on the basis of colour is she?

But for heaven's sake, make sure it's not inferior cheese.....

O.M.G. I tried to PM you with this but it doesn't seem to be working, so I'll just post it and take it down later and hope that you see it in the meantime, SarDonik.

I just saw a FB status by one of my BFFs from HS.  She MUST be your DHs second cousin twice removed.  She was in shock about one of her guests (a "cousin") misreading the invitation and thinking that the PARTNER was invited, when she had meant to be inviting the ALPACA.

I read in your OP that your name was misspelt ... how misspelt was it?  She's Welsh and she reckons she wrote "Darling Brian" = AnwyliaidBrian - is this similar to your name (like is your name Amy or something?), and did you mistakenly read the invite to be inviting you?

She also left a comment that you called her and asked why Brian wasn't invited, and she was so confused that she didn't know what to say to you and she couldn't hear over the alpaca anyway.  She wanted advice on how to disinvite you and invite Brian instead (or, as she put it "dump the biatch and pick up the alpaca").

I suggested that she hotfoot it to EB so that she can leave a surreptious message on this thread for you.  Hope it all works out.  Best of luck.

Is Brian circumcised?

Maybe he's be more welcome if he werern't in his natural state?

Well I would be happy to look after Brian for you, so you could attend.

No point taking him if the bride keeps giving him dirty looks. He is such a sensitive soul.

I have been so teary and upset since reading about your tragedy Tracey.  You are such a special person I can't believe this is happening to you.  Surely anyone who knows you and Brian realises how unbreakable your bond is.  To separate you would be so cruel, so wrong..  I have sent you a special Facebook message reminding you that I am your BFF and would do anything for you.  Except maybe tomorrow because I need to wash my hair and stuff.

Well, you know at the last wedding you and Brian attended, you did change his nappy right in the middle of the aisle as the bride was walking down it.  And then left the evidence in the bridal car...

And seriously, who names their Alpaca Brian??

Sid would be a more suitable name.

I think we should have an Alpaca naming thread, don't you think?

OP how is Brian fairing with all of this alpaca-versity?
I know a good Alpaca pshycologist that he could see if you/he needs to.
Poor Alpaca's they are such a misunderstood group.
