FOAD #10

Very classy:

Dear Mr and Mrs Smith,

Thank you for inviting us to your wedding. It was an unparalleled experience.

The cashier at the church was a very innovative way to finance the event. I am certain I would be unable to equal such an ingenious move. In fact my fiancee told me so in no uncertain terms, and she made a point adding how awestruck she was at seeing him again at the reception later.

It was most thoughtful of you to inform us where we could buy the food to bring -- otherwise we would have been late to the party itself.

All of this has made us understand how insufficient in comparison our wedding would be. We don't wish to inflict such a paltry experience on the two of you. I apologize for sending you the invitation earlier and hope you are gracious enough to forgive us for not retracting it sooner than we did.

Yours humbly

John Doe

Now *this* is a true FOAD letter. Absolutely brilliant! Mine pales in comparison.

Smooth and witty. I'm betting the people never saw the FOAD coming. Beautifully done.

There was a cashier at the CHURCH?! Whatever for? Were they selling nuptial candles? Birdseed perhaps? (They could have just gotten those coin-operated birdseed dispensers like I've seen at petting zoos. One at the end of every pew. Much classier.)

Wow..this sounds like getting married just for the gifts..and anything else that can be squeezed out of the guests (or is it unsuspecting attendees...).

Very classy indeed!

Favorite line: It was an unparalleled experience.

I'll have to remember that one.
