Ask Amy: Bride Wants Guests To Take Out The Trash

DEAR AMY: My wife and I are attending a wedding next weekend. We are friends with the bride and groom, but not best friends. We received an e-mail stating that we and another married couple have been “signed up” for the clean-up committee.

The bride is catering her own wedding and using a rental kitchen. She just sent us an e-mail saying she had assigned us to move tables and chairs, take out garbage and sweep the floor after the reception has ended.
