Bride-To-Be Puts PayPal Details On Car And Asks Strangers To Fund Wedding

We all know how expensive weddings can be; with the price of the dress, the venue, the food and even the flowers, it's no wonder tying the knot can take a toll on your bank balance.

However, one bride-to-be had a novel way to raise the funds for the big day - by asking strangers to donate.

The unnamed woman put their PayPal number written all over the windows of her car, and asked people to give generously towards her wedding fund.

While this particular bride was unabashed about asking for cash, people on Reddit were less than supportive, after the photo was posted on one of the website's threads - with one person claiming to see two cards had been branded with her PayPal number to raise cash.

The bride was branded "trashy" and "tacky" for her attempts to raise the money needed for her big day on Reddit's 'wedding shaming' page.

"If you think it's tacky for people to post on Facebook asking for donations for their wedding, you can't think this is cute or funny. It's the exact same thing," one person haughtily wrote.

"This is super tacky," said a second.

"Surely this is an unsafe thing to do?" queried a third. "But maybe I'm just a very private and paranoid person."

While a fourth said: "I guess if they want to be hacked that's the way to do it!"

However, others were more positive about the idea.

"I don't think that's really trashy," wrote one person. "If I saw that, I might want to send a little money to the expecting bride for a drink on me."

A second wrote: "Asking for donations of large sums of money to fund the wedding, or forcing your guests to cough up money to attend, is not the same as putting out your PayPal/Venmo on your car. I've seen people doing this for birthdays and graduations as well. Gives people the option to buy them a 'virtual' drink or something."

"If a bride made a Facebook status like 'Heading out for my bachelorette party with my girls!!! Here's my Cashapp if you wanna buy the bride a drink,' That would be harmless. I don't think I'd do it, but I see it just as someone having a good time. That's what this car is doing," a third person said.

Hmmm...jury's out on this one.
