A couple have divided opinion after a video was posted to TikTok of a wedding invitation.

In the invitation the user @kellikeylimepie shared on the social media platform, she sparked debate over a particular wedding request.

On the invite, guests are told 'please understand that you are obligated to pay for your own meal."

On a separate part of the invitation, guests are told 'all gifts appreciated; monetary gifts preferred'.

The TikToker captioned the video by asking her followers what she thinks of the demands on the invitation.

Typically, when you are invited to a wedding, you'd expect that the meal would be paid for you, but this couple obviously have different ideas.

This has brought heated discussions in the comments section of the TikTok, which has over 660,000 views.

One person said: "If you can’t afford to have a wedding & pay for your guests, then either don’t invite so many people or just have a wedding with immediate family."

A second added: "No way in hell I’d go. That’s so tacky."

A third said: "I would be fine paying for my own meal if the invite said no gifts. But to expect cash when guests are paying for themselves is absolutely ridiculous."

And a fourth joked: "I swear some people get married thinking it’s a FUNDRAISER."

But there was a few who defended the couple for their weddings demands.

"I’m in the minority but idk, I get it," one person said.

A second added: "Weddings are expensive. It’s not like they are asking you to travel to another country or something."

In other wedding news, a woman has defended her decision to bring her 10-month-old baby to her cousin's child-free wedding.

The woman - who posted to Reddit - said she didn't want to leave her baby with a babysitter during her cousin's big day so decided to bring her along.

She said: "My baby was 10 months old at the time and I wasn't comfortable leaving him alone in an unfamiliar place with a stranger, which was a babysitter that my other cousins hired for their own kids. So I decided to bring him to the wedding.

"I wrote on the RSVP that I was bringing him but he would be sitting on my lap and I would bring my own food for him. My cousin didn't say anything so I assumed that he was OK with it."
