NEW YORK - How can a jar of marshmallow fluff ruined a friendship and a wedding day?

It all began on June 19, when the Hamilton Spectator post something from a disgruntled wedding guest, detailing his text battle over a gift he had sent a newly married friend.

Kathy Mason and her boyfriend went to the wedding of two Canadian women, and things went afoul from there.

Mason's boyfriend said they gave the happy couple a wicker box filled with fun food items. On the card, they wrote 'Life is delicious ... Enjoy."

The next day, he got a text-message version of a seemingly disingenuous thank-you note. One of the brides said she couldn't eat any of the food because she's gluten intolerant and then jokingly asked for a receipt.

The second bride flaunted how much they spent - per person - for the wedding and then mocked the gift they received. posted the full text exchange between the gift givers and the no-longer-so-happy couple. Read the full exchange here:
