A bride-to-be has revealed that she cancelled her 'fairytale' wedding because guests refused to be pay the $1,500 (£896) she asked.
Is that a thing now, four-digit wedding presents?
The bride, 'Susan' from Canada was set to marry the love of her life, whom she has known since she was just 14 years old. The cost of her their love? $60,000 (£35,857).
She needed help for her Kardashian-esque wedding, but when she asked her guests about the money, they scattered.
In a Facebook post shared on mumsnet which has gone wonderfully viral, the mother-of-one blames her friends and family for the dissolution of her relationship.
The extensive post starts:
Dear friends, it comes with great sadness that I am announcing the cancellation of the wedding. I apologise for cancelling only four days beforehand.
Unfortunately, [fiance] and I have broken up due to some recent and irreparable problems. We have decided to end our relationship and not go forth with any future proceedings.
The reason? GUESTS REFUSED TO PAY $1,500 DOLLARS FOR HER WEDDING.
I specifically, I mean specifically asked for cash gifts. How could we have our wedding that we dreamed of without proper funding?
We'd sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for around $1,500.
Hold up: $1,500 is rent. It's a holiday. It's savings. It's A LOT OF MONEY.
My maid of honour pledged $5,000 along with her planning services. We tearfully thanked and accepted. My ex's family offered to contribute $3,000.
So our request for $1,500 for all other guests was not f**king out of the ordinary. Like, we made it clear. If you couldn't contribute, you weren't invited to our exclusive wedding. It's once and a life time party [sic]
After sending out the invitations, only eight guests RSVP'd with their check of $1,500.
We were f**king livid.
Is that, like the royal 'we'? Because her fiance went on to suggest a quickie wedding in Las Vegas that Susan frowned upon.
I laughed in his face, but he was dead serious. He wanted those cheap, filthy, h***e like Vegas weddings. I mean WHAT the f**k? Was he out of his mind? Am I some h**ck piece of f**king trash, a hooker? Am I supposed to like the idea of getting married in the heart of shady gamblers, alcoholics, and the get rich fast fallacy?
Eventually, her maid of honour backed out, her beau's family rescinded their $3k and a GoFundMe page yielded just $250.
The whole affair came to a head after she claimed her partner was talking about her behind her back, calling her a 'stuck up b***h'.
She ended the monumental rant by saying she's deleting her account and will spend October and November 'backbacking in South America' where she will find herself and stuff.
Someone claiming to be Susan's cousin confirms she's a real person and is grateful she only 'sees her once a year.'
People are stuck between 'Is this real?' and 'Stop the world, I'm getting off'.
