I am increasingly convinced that people are beginning to regard weddings as some sort of rent party, where guests will all contribute massive checks. I mean, here’s another story about some nightmarishly ungrateful bride from Jezebel, which I assure you, you are going to hate.
The bride got a $100 checks from one of the guests and here boyfriend (who were recent college graduate with student loan debt). The bride then sent them this message:
Hi Tanya, how are you? I just want to know is there any reason or dissatisfaction of Mike’s and I wedding that both you and Phil gave 50$ each? In terms of the amount we got from you both was very unexpected as a result we were very much short on paying off the reception because just for the cocktail + reception alone the plate per person is 200$ (as per a normal wedding range with open bar is about) and Mike and I both have already paid for everything else including decor, photography, attire etc and didn’t expect we had to cover that huge amount for reception as well. As I know you both live together and work, so I did not see any reason for that amount, when it comes to your wedding hopefully you’ll know what I mean. I hope for the best as from what we receive is what we will give back. Anyways, good luck on everything.
Yes. You paid for everything because it was your wedding. It was like a party that you were throwing. It was, in fact, exactly that. If you want to run a small business wherein people pay $200 to show up to a space you have picked and eat some chicken and clap whenever you walk into a room, well, we’ll see how much money you can raise from that.
