A woman responded to her estranged parents' efforts to get an invite to her wedding by telling them to f*ck off in fancy serif font.

23-year-old Alyssa Pearce alleges that she suffered "physical, emotional, and sexual abuse at the hands of two people who were supposed to love and cherish me" growing up and that her parents were trying to "bully" an invitation out of her through other family members.

She obliged, though it wasn't the invitation they were hoping for.

"I went home and wrote my parents the de-invitation," she explained on Reddit.

"I opened up a word document, found the nicest calligraphy font I could, loaded up the printer with some of the lovely parchment paper left over from the other invitations, and wrote.

"I then found a nice matching envelope, addressed it with a fancy gold pen, and posted it. I mean, if you’re going to send someone a memorable 'stuff you,' you’ve really got to put in some effort. You may as well go all-out."

Alyssa provided an update today saying that her wedding was 'amazing'. It doesn't seem her parents were in attendance.
