A bride-to-be who was planning on tying the knot in May was shocked by a ‘rude’ message one of her guests left on the invitation, stating that between work requirements and COVID-19 it’s ‘not going to happen’.
The anonymous woman, from New York, who wanted to walk down the aisle on May 30, sent out her invitations in February, just before the global pandemic forced most of the world into a lockdown.
She posted a photo of the returned invitation with the message to Facebook ‘shaming’ the guests for their response.
‘Shaming the guests who thought this was appropriate. I sent out invites before the pandemic began and I just got postponement cards in the mail,’ she said.

But not everyone was so sure the returned message was out of line, particularly since China was already experiencing the effects of the coronavirus in January.
‘Personally I don’t consider sending out invites in February “pre-pandemic”. There were pretty clear indications the virus was going to hit the US in late January. People were already staying home in February,’ one woman said.
