Bride Demands Wedding Guests Pay $150 To Attend

An anonymous bride-to-be has come under fire for charging her guests to attend her wedding.

Anyone wanting to watch the pair tie the knot will have to fork out an eye-watering $150 (£111) per head.

She insisted that though herself and her partner "aren't rich" enough to afford a lavish wedding, "both of us mainly me [...] deserve the wedding of our dreams".

The bride originally posted her instructions on their wedding Facebook group. It was then screenshotted and shared on Reddit thread r/weddingshaming.

According to the lengthy post, "we are going to ask our guests to pay for their seat which it's looking like $150+ per head [sic]".

She then listed five incredibly specific reasons to justify her controversial decision. These included "[we're] not rich", "[we'd] prefer to spend money on improving our house as well as paying [it] off" and "spending more than $10,000 dollars we can not justify it on one day [sic]".

Instead of apologising for the wedding gaffe, the bride attempted to convince guests why this is definitely the right decision.

"I do hope our guests can understand and respect our reasons for doing our wedding like this", she said. "Plus we know so many people and want our friends and family to be there and enjoy this once in a life time event with us [sic]".

She clarified that she'd "never done this before so it's all new to me".

Reddit users were unsurprisingly irked by the post, and ceased to hold back in the comments.

"If you don't want to pay for an expensive wedding so you can spend money on your house, that's a good decision. Just don't have an expensive wedding", one remarked.

"People gotta stop acting like they're doing you a favour by having a wedding. If you want a wedding and want to invite people, that's really your choice", said another.
