“Bride Invites Me To Wedding And Expects Me To Pay For Venue”: Woman Shares How She Got A Wedding Invitation That Came With A $550 Fee

Recently, a Redditor who wished to remain thoroughly anonymous turned to the Wedding Shaming community to share an incident she had with a former friend from her university days.

“So this friend I made in university and I were once close, until she got engaged 2 years ago and cut off all her single friends cause she’s ‘too good for single friends and can only now have engaged or married friends’ according to her,” the author explained. Turns out, they haven’t spoken for two years and the author has since gotten over it.

Fast forward to today, and Shades0fcool has an email pop up in her inbox that looks like spam. The Redditor opens it and realizes it’s a wedding invitation with a “little” catch.

Bored Panda reached out to the author of this story who said that they have never received this kind of a wedding invitation where a bride expects guests to pay for the meal and the venue.

The author confirmed that initially, she thought it was a spam message that dropped into her inbox. “I didn’t recognize the name since it had been so long and it was just weird to attach a receipt at the bottom of an invitation,” the Redditor explained.

When asked whether there’s the tiniest chance that the bride genuinely wanted to see the author at her wedding since they used to be friends a while ago, the author said: “Not really… I think she just needed to achieve her minimum guest list.”

The author then added an update about this whole situation

I wonder if her woman’s fiancé is abusive and the reason she stopped seeing her former friends and mostly only associate with his friends. It’s typical for an abuser to remove his victim from their support group. Nobody has even met him?

The OP keeps bringing up the that the bride cut her off 2 yrs ago. It really wouldn't matter to me if I was in contact and a close friend to the bride. There is NO WAY, even if I had the spare $550, I would attend this wedding. It's not a performance event.

Exactly. I can understand if the couple informs that they dont need presents but would appreciate the possible present being money that will be used to pay for the wedding and/or honeymoon trip.

Imagine being so delusional that you believe people you haven't spoken to for years would pay to attend your wedding.
