I can only take one of those two at a time. I fear quarantine plus Alone in the Universe at the same time might be too much for my anti-depression neurons to fight off.
Argentina is a very social -and very socially sensitive- country, you have to be very careful of the way you treat people or you might offend someone, and people normally care about not offending others, at least if they are acquaintances (about others they don't give a shit though). It's probably not very different than the US and the UK in that regard (and completely different from, for example, Germany, where they have a more practical albeit less sentimental approach to things). So yeah, it's not acceptable.
And we got proof of that: my sister and my to-be brother-in-law told me that they knew someone who had had the same issue (wedding last Saturday) and had opted for trimming the list from 400+ down to 200, the minimum allowed. The result, as I had expected, was lots of offended people.
Your tale about the groom and bride getting so stressed over their wedding and simple fleeing away is epic, something to be remembered. I'd totally do that, I don't think I could take a standard wedding with all the typical features that they have nowadays. Meh, what do I worry about?
