Look, the truth of the matter is that the majority of people don’t get that amped up about attending weddings. Even if you love the couple in question, and even if you’re thrilled beyond measure that they’ve found their happily-ever-after, weddings are about stuffing yourself into uncomfortable clothes, eating subpar banquet hall food, bringing a pricey gift, and avoiding creepy old men on the dance floor.
Which is to say, aside from an open bar, there’s not a whole lot in it for your guests to begin with. But one bride took things wayyyyyyy too far when she asked people to pay to attend the big day, and then totally lost her mind in a Facebook rant when they (shockingly) laughed in her face.
The story comes courtesy of a Twitter relay from @olspicykeychain, and I, for one, am eternally grateful. The post has since been deleted (possibly because the bride was completely crazy and has probably taken out some kind of otherworldly hit on the poster), but I have quotes for you below – you’re going to have to read them to believe them.
Long story short, though, on how all of this came about – take one spoiled woman who “just wanted to be a Kardashian for a day,” one $60,000 wedding in Aruba (locale and budget advised by a psychic) and one couple who in no way can afford the wedding, and you get a bride who expects people to pay – in advance – to attend the “party of a lifetime.”
After all, how could they have “OUR wedding that WE dreamed of without proper funding? We sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for around $1500.”
Only. I wonder if she understands the meaning of the word.
The bride’s maid of honor tried to do her best friend duties and tell the woman that she was acting batsh-t insane, only to be berated and called a “filthy f—ing poor excuse for a friend.” All of her bridesmaids were terrible for eventually asking for their money back (though she refused to comply).
The couple, in case you’re wondering, called off their wedding with four days to go because of undisclosed reasons, but it definitely was the fault of the guests for refusing to pay their fair share. Girlfriend is taking the money she refused to return and leaving for two months in South America so she can “rid herself of the toxicity.”
I don’t know if two months is going to be long enough to get that done. It’s not long enough for me to rid myself of the toxicity of having read this entire post.
