A wedding day is often considered one of the most important days in a person’s life.
So it should come as no surprise that many bride and grooms-to-be are keen for the day to run as smoothly as possible.
In order to ensure this is the case, some people will hire themselves a wedding planner who is in charge of ironing out all the small details, others will have to rely on themselves to make sure things go off without a hitch.
One woman wanted her wedding to be perfect so badly, she decided to make it very clear from the off what was expected of guests.
A lengthy two-page save the date card for a couple has been shared online and is the subject of much scrutiny.
Shared in a post on Facebook , the save the date informs those invited to the wedding of "things to keep in mind" before they confirm their attendance.
It starts by abruptly informing the recipient that the nuptials are going to be held overseas in an Asian country such as Thailand or the Philippines – but they haven’t decided where yet.
Regardless she goes on to explain that the whole thing isn’t going to be cheap for anyone, so she suggests people start saving their "pennies" now as they’ll need "approximately $4,000 to $5,000 to cover the cost of their flight, hotel, food, drinks and holiday activities.
She then revealed that wedding festivities would last two to three days and that guests will need to take at "least" two weeks off work, because one week is "too short".
At the end of the save the date, the woman adds: "Once we receive everyone’s save the dates back and know how many people are willing to make the long journey to attend, we will begin finding a venue and send out the invitations with the venue name, dates and time of ceremony/reception.
"Once you have received your invitations you can proceed with booking flights, holidays from work and so on.
"We hope to give you at least nine months in advance, so if you want to attend start saving your pennies now!"
People on Facebook were not impressed with any of it and branded the two-page document "aggressive".
One person wrote: "I think this is an invitation to be murdered."
Another commented: "She might not even need a venue after those save the dates, as it might just be her and the hubby."
A third added: "These people really do not want anyone at their wedding."
However one or two Facebook users didn’t think it was all that bad.
Someone else thought she was simply being "mindful".
Another suggested it was a good idea but it just hadn’t been executed "very well".
