Bride Doesn’t Include Wedding Dinner Price In Her Wedding Invites, Is Surprised To See Many Guests Canceling On Her After They Find Out

It’s entirely up to the newlyweds what their most awaited day in life is gonna be like. But often, they do surprise their guests and not necessarily in a good way with the decisions they make. Like, asking their guests after they already RSVPed to pay for their meals and not understanding why the guests suddenly feel uncomfortable.

Well, this is exactly what happened to one anonymous guest who “received the most beautiful wedding invitation and responded well before the deadline with our choice for dinner and space for two.” The author wrote that a couple of days later, they received a follow-up voice message thanking them for responding and asking them to pay $75 per food per person.

Now the confused guest wants to ask people if “anyone has heard of this happening?” adding that this is not a destination wedding. Scroll down through the whole story below and be sure to share what you think of the incident in the comment section!

Then, they received a follow-up voice message thanking them for the RSVP and requesting a $150 fee for the food they’re going to eat, which was not indicated before

“I honestly never heard any bride and groom asking their guests to pay for their food,” Aurelie Della Maggiore, the luxury wedding planner and event designer at Lucy Till French Weddings, told Bored Panda.

She added: “That’s also not something I will recommend to my client to do. If you don’t have the budget to afford a wedding dinner, then my advice will be to cut the guest numbers and to a have a intimate wedding, or to do a stand-up cocktail instead of a formal served dinner to try to cut the costs down.”

Aurelie also said that “if you plan to have your guests pay for something at your wedding, such as transportation or extra activities, I will recommend adding that information into your wedding website but maybe not into the formal invitation.”

And this is how people reacted to the whole incident

My niece was asked to be a bridesmaid in a wedding and she happily said yes because she is close to the couple. The next week, she and the rest of the wedding party got an email from the bride and groom with what they would be expected to spend. First and foremost was that each member of the bridal party was to pay $2,500 for "the privilege of being in the wedding" and it went on from there with the expected costs of dresses, tuxes, $1,000 each for the cost of the bachelor and bachelorette parties, gifts of no less than $250 for the engagement party and $500 for the reception, etc. She called the bride and asked if it was a joke. When she was assured it wasn't, niece noped right the eff out of the bridal party.

$75 per person will get you a nice hassle-free meal at a local restaurant. You get to support a local business and leave a good tip for your server.
