This Bride Canceled Her Wedding After Guests Refused to Give Thousands of Dollars to Help Fund It




 

From ELLE

Okay everyone, buckle up, because this might be the most insane wedding story you'll hear this year. On Saturday, one Twitter user, @0lspicykeychain, tweeted screenshots of a status she saw shared in a wedding shaming group on Facebook. (To clarify, a wedding shaming Facebook group is exactly what it sounds like-a place on the internet where people go to shame weddings.) What follows is a truly incredible tale filled with broken promises, outrageous expectations, and a bride who thought asking each of her guests to contribute $1,500 to her wedding was a reasonable request:

In the status, the anonymous woman shares that she and her partner broke up due to "recent and irreparable problems." She then goes onto explain how the two met at age 14, fell in love, got engaged at 18 (with a $5,000 ring), and had a child together in their early 20s. They then saved up about $15,000 for their dream wedding but quickly discovered that their actual dream wedding would cost about $60,000. "All we asked was for a little help from our friends and family to make it happen," she wrote.

The couple asked each wedding guest to contribute $1,500 to their wedding, along with a $5,000 pledge from the maid of honor, and a $3,000 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 [sic] a lifetime party."). She explains they were "f*cking livid" when only eight people RSVP'd and sent the check; her maid of honor soon backed out as well. They set up a GoFundMe page only to receive $250. Her fiancé suggested a Vegas wedding instead ("Was he out of his mind?") and her maid of honor told her to stick to her budget. ("How could someone who offered me THOUSANDS OF F*CKING DOLLARS then deny me MY promised money and then tell me to shift down my budget????")

The story goes on from there, and I promise, if you like rollercoasters, you'll love this thread-though there does seem to be some information missing.

Another Twitter user asked @0lspicykeychain if a page was missing, and @0lspicykeychain replied, "Yeah sorry there def is...the OP missed a page when initially sharing the status so this is all we got."

I encourage you to fill in the gaps yourself. Use your imagination! Go wild! Just maybe not ask-your-loved-ones-for-thousands-of-dollars wild?
