That's How The Parting Gift Crumbles

Life & Style magazine obtained a couple of goodies from the wedding of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz which went down over the weekend at the Simpson family home in Encino, CA. There is no word on how the mag obtained these items (or at what cost) but since they have them in their possession, they thought it would be nice to share the wealth with the rest of the world. Here are pics of the Ashl33n wedding invitation and the parting gift that each attendee went home with at the end of the night:

Life & Style has exclusively obtained the gorgeous invitation for Ashlee & Pete's wedding, and a photo of the parting gift for guests. The red and black invitation for the May 17 nuptials reads:

"It's getting late so save the date: Ashlee & Pete, join us May 17, 2008, Los Angeles. Transportation will be provided to the wedding. You will be contacted with additional information."

In lieu of gifts, the couple asked that donations be made to Invisible Children, a nonprofit group the couple has been involved in for more than a year. This invitation was part of a text message and email campaign the couple hurriedly put together before their wedding to let guests know of their special day. As for a parting gift for guests, on their way out of the wedding, they received Alice in Wonderland­-inspired cookies (wrapped in a box within a box) that read "Eat me."

A cookie? That is all that wedding guests were given as a parting gift from the wedding? No wonder one of the guests decided to sell their damn cookie and invitation to a weekly tabloid magazine (who, I think, was being generous with the compliments by describing the invitation as "gorgeous"). I dunno ... couldn't the wedding guests have walked away with a nice centerpiece or something? Anything better than a cookie? C'mon ya'll ... the cookie is kinda lame. [Source]
