Was it wrong to write on a couple’s wedding plate if I didn’t know them?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma came from Cheryl and it’s about signing a wedding guestbook/bowl. Here is his email:

Hi Jaime. I did something the other night when I was out for dinner with my husband that I thought was fun and entertaining, but some friends seriously criticized me about it. Here is what happened. We went to eat in a restaurant which is also a wedding venue. As we were leaving after our meal, we peeked into the room where the reception was taking place. The way it was set up, everyone was dancing in the back of the room and no one was where we were looking. Anyway, there was a big bowl there for all the guests to sign, you know, instead of a guest book, it was a guest bowl. So my husband and I signed it. Best wishes, may you have a long and happy life together, Cheryl and Craig. We thought it was fun and really wished them the best. We thought it would be a great story for the newlyweds trying to figure out who Cheryl and Craig were. So we left, I told the story to some friends who told me we were being incredibly rude and how dare we ruin this couple’s wedding signature bowl. We didn’t see it that way. So we thought we’d come to you. What do you think? Are we horrible, or was it a fun little story that anyone can tell. Thank you I like.

Well, I have to admit, I laughed at the story, and if it was me who got married, I would have loved it. I would first wonder who the hell these people are, and then I would like us to have this little mystery surrounding our marriage. But that’s just me.

What do you think? Were Cheryl and Craig irrelevant for doing this, or was it just a fun gesture. Let me know on TRY’s Facebook page.
