My cousin is getting married in a few weeks. In their invitation they asked that in lieu of gifts, donations be made to their Paypal account for their honeymoon! Or, “If you don’t Paypal, we are registered at XYZ store for your convenience.” I was talking with his mother the other day and she said they are very upset because not one person has donated to their honeymoon Paypal fund! They may not be able to go now! So, their plan B? Have my other cousin, who is 5, walk around the reception with a basket and collect money! His mother told me that was his JOB at the wedding! They are also having a money dance! They are hoping they make enough from that to pay for their reservation that they made! If they weren’t family, I would be very hesitant to attend their wedding. 0109-14
Oh, how cute! The five year old little brother is being used like a trained monkey to beg money from guests. They are exploiting his cuteness factor to elicit gifts of money from otherwise reluctant guests. Why people don’t hang their heads in shame at such obvious finagling for money is beyond me.
You should prepare to place “money” like this in Lil’ Cuz’s basket:
