No one enjoys guests turning up late to important events.

While most of us might direct a passive-aggressive snarky comment to latecomers, or quietly kiss our teeth, one engaged couple decided to take preemptive action.

In the run-up to their big day, the bride and groom-to-be told guests that if they couldnt arrive on time, theyd be missing out.

And they specified exactly what theyd be missing – food and chairs.

In their wedding invite, the happy couple told guests that if they failed to RSVP within the given time frame, theyd have to bring a chair and a sandwich.

An image of the invite was shared on Reddit saying: Please respond by September 10 2019, alongside the standard decline with regret and accept with pleasure.

The post racked up more than 1,000 comments with some hailing it as sassy while others thought the couple had no right to be issuing such threats.

A few people supported the couples decision saying: Good for them. Thats why you RSVP.

Some people didnt think of it as a bad thing, arguing that the bring-your-own service meant they could opt out of a gift.

One wrote: More comfortable chair, and your choice of sandwich? Sounds like a no brainer to me. And you wouldnt have to give them a gift because you are saving them money. Its a win win really.

In the same vein, another wrote: Does that mean I dont have to RSVP, and then I can bring a chair and a sandwich and not buy the bride and groom a gift cuz Im broke (and cuz Im not eating their expensive food)?

Of course, as with Reddit comments, some users had jokes.

One person quipped: Dont RSVP and bring a La-Z-Boy chair and one of those extremely long subway sandwiches. Assert dominance.

Another had some more useful advice, telling couples to reveal the address only when they RSVP but give then an idea of whereabouts it would be held.

A perfect solution.
