Bride Cancels Wedding Because Guests Didn’t Pay Her
On Saturday, a twitter user posted a thread of screenshots of a crazy wedding stories from a Facebook page where people share stories and shame weddings that went wrong. The story was about a bride who outrageously asked and expected her guests to pay her $1,500 for her wedding.
If you have a solid 10 mins to absorb this, I present a very real status shared in a wedding shaming group I’m a part of

The bride tells the story of how the couple met when they 14 and fell in love at 18. They went on to save $15,000 for their dream wedding but realized that it would actually cost them around $60,0000. “All we asked was for a little help from our friends and family to make it happen,” she wrote.
They asked each guest to contribute $1,500, the maid of honor to pledge $5,000 and the groom’s parents to give $3,000. “Like, we made it CLEAR. If you couldn’t contribute, you weren’t invited to our exclusive wedding. It’s a once and [sic] a lifetime party.” Only 8 out of the invited guests RSVP’d and sent checks, the maid of honor backed out and after setting up a GoFundMe page they received only $250.
After this all went down, the couple cancelled their wedding and broke up citing, “recent and irreparable differences”. Do you think it is crazy for a bride to expect her guests to pay her for the wedding or is it similar to the “salaami” tradition that we have?Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
