A bride and groom have been met with backlash online over their ‘aggressive’ wedding invitation, which sparked a debate on Reddit.

Wedding invitations need to be as clear as possible when it comes to the finer details.

After all, you don’t want someone rocking up with a plus one that you’ve not accounted for, or surprise guests taking their seat at the church when they were just invited to the evening reception.

It can lead to VERY awkward situations, which is why you’re better off being straight to the point and honest on the invites... right?

Well, to a degree, yes, but maybe don't be quite as blunt as one couple were with theirs.

Posting a photo of the invitation on Reddit a couple of years ago, a user wrote: “My cousin sent this along with her wedding invitations… I will not be in attendance.”

The post racked up more than 26,000 upvotes and one hell of a debate in the 1,900-strong comments section, as people discussed the topic.

The invite included a list of ‘s**t you need to know’, including everything from whether or not children were invited to dress code.

The only thing is, it was pretty brash.

Under dietary requirements, it just said: “Eat what you’re given, you fat f**k.”

As for children? “Leave your little s**t at home. We want to get f**ked up. (We will turn you away).”

For hotels, the couple advised others to ‘Google it you Lazy F**k’, while for taxis it simply said: “See above.”

“Wear whatever the f**k you want,” they said of the dress code, adding: “Go butt f**k naked for all we care.”

Parking-wise, it was a case of ‘follow[ing] the f**king directions we gave you, dumba**’, and if anyone had any questions they were told to simply ‘check the f**king website’.

Commenting on the Reddit post, one person asked: “Why is it so f**king hostile?”

Someone else agreed: “That's one aggressive invitation.”

WARNING: CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE, SO DON'T SCROLL DOWN IF YOU'RE EASILY OFFENDED...

Another added: “One can’t help but notice the abrupt change of tone in the ‘wedding gifts’ section.”

Indeed, that said very politely: “If you wanted to give us a wedding gift, a contribution to our honeymoon would be perfect.”

However, others didn’t mind the tone of the invite, with one joking: “I don't hate it. It wouldn't stop me from attending. I would have higher hopes for an open bar.”

Someone else wrote: “Yeah, the idea of the invitation is cool, especially if you’re giving it to friends or someone who isn’t you 84-year old aunt who thinks wearing hats at the dinner table is a cardinal sin. Besides the dietary restrictions and debatably the kids one, this sounds like a fun, yet tacky, wedding.”
