Oh no! It's a scary-looking legal letter

Hilarious prank goes a bit wrong when nobody turns up to the wedding…

A couple's terrifying wedding invite became the perfect way to ward off unwanted guests.

The bride and groom-to-be decided to fly in the face of tradition and frighten their friends and family by creating invitations that appeared to be a court demand.

My aunt is marrying a sheriff. Their invitation nearly gave everyone a heart attack.

The notice to appear in court detailed the guests' name and the wedding venue and date, but all on official legal paper and it scared guests so much many didn't attend.

One posted an image of the invite on Imgur and said: "Their invitation nearly gave everyone a heart attack."

Another commented: "Some people aren't gonna show up. Too busy running away and never opening this letter."
