Bride-To-Be Cancels Wedding After Guests Refuse To Contribute $1,500 Each
Everyone knows that weddings can be ridiculously expensive, which is why one woman was forced to cancel her wedding when her guests refused to contribute a hefty $1,500 (£1176.75) per head to attend to exclusive bash.
The bride-to-be shared her story in vicious friend-shaming rant on Facebook, which was later shared to a wedding shaming group (yes, that's a real thing), and then posted on Twitter for the rest of the world to see.
In the status, the anonymous woman said she and her partner, who she met at the age of 14, had broken up due to 'recent and irreparable problems'.
The woman details receiving a $5,000 (£3,922.50) engagement ring at the age of 18, having a child together in their early 20s and then saving up an impressive $15,000 (£117,67.50) for their dream wedding - before realising their dream wedding would actually cost an eye-watering $60,000 (£470,070).
So, the couple asked their family and friends for 'a little help' to make it happen.
As well as donations from guests, the couple asked for a $5,000 (£3,922.50) pledge from the maid of honour and a $3,000 (£2353.50) pledge from the groom's parents.
"Like, we made it CLEAR. If you couldn't contribute, you weren't invited to our exclusive wedding. It's a once and a lifetime party," she explained.
However, the woman was left 'f*cking livid' when only eight people RSVP'd and sent the required cheque and her maid of honour ended up backing out of the arrangement.
They even decided to set up a GoFundMe page to help them along the way, but were disappointed when they only received a grand total of $250 (£196.13) towards their big day.
When the woman's fiancé suggested they opt for a Vegas wedding to avoid all the agro, she laughed in his face.
"He wanted one of those cheap, raggedy, filthy, wh*re like Vegas weddings. I mean WHAT the f*ck?? Was he out of his mind?," she raged.
The story goes further, but it does seem like there's a few bits missing - we'll just use our imagination to fill in the gaps.
After reading all that, a Vegas wedding doesn't sound so bad at all.
