A bride is being slammed online, after one of her Facebook posts went viral as she threatened to block family and friends if they refused to pay thousands of pounds for their wedding
It’s no secret that weddings cost an awful lot of money, not just for the bride and groom, but for all the family and friends who fork out on travel, hotels, gifts and nice outfits.
And, while it’s usually an absolute pleasure to be able to spend a couple’s special day with them, there has got to be a limit as to just how much is expected of guests.
One bride-to-be has learned this the hard way, after her dreams of a lavish wedding in Thailand were duped by the fact that just nine out of a 150 guests RSVP’d to the event.
“Okay, I get it, paying $3,000 to share my special day is a bit much for some of you, I’d pay for yours, but whatever,” the woman vented on Facebook, in a post which has since been shared to Reddit.
Sensing that the price point was the reason that most people hadn’t responded to the wedding invite, the bride revealed she and her partner had opted to change the destination of their nuptials to Hawaii, as it’s much closer to the US than Thailand – but sadly, things went from bad to worse.
“But, then, when we changed the destination to Hawaii so it was in everyone’s reach, only seven of you RSVP’d?!?! It costs less but less of you wanna come?! Is that what you think of [my future husband] and me?! You can’t spare $2,000 to come share our happiness?” the bride ranted.
“I’m tempted to elope and not let any of you be part of our happiest day. This is it guys, you have three days to respond to our evites or we’re deleting you off Facebook and good luck keeping up with our lives then.”
She continued: “And don’t get me started on the registry. Only the cheap stuff is gone, I swear I thought I had better friends.”
The post was later shared to Reddit’s Face Palm forum, where it’s fair to say people were less than impressed with her attitude.
“I’m surprised Bridezilla has any friends at all,” one Reddit user commented, while another added: “Wow, I hope her fiancé runs for the hills.”
Meanwhile, others referenced an article saying most Americans don’t have access to $400 for emergencies, so you can imagine why some people might be a tad hesitant towards paying thousands on someone else’s wedding…
