Bridezilla Asks Guests $1,500 Each, And It Ends So Badly That Even Christine Teigen Responds

Your wedding day, it can be the best and worst day of your life. Sure you are making a loving commitment to your soul mate, but the pre-planning to get this glorious occasion takes blood, sweat, tears and in most cases a ton of cash. Blushing brides turn into goblins and everyone around them must try and not get caught in the crossfire. One such special day bridezilla story was shared by Twitter user @0lspicykeychain, member of a “wedding shaming” group on Facebook, that delights in discussing the wackiest and elaborate of wedding tales. And if you thought that a toaster or a coffee-maker counts as best wedding gifts, wait ’till you see what this bridezilla asked for of her guests.

It begins with a story of two young lovers who got engaged at a mere 18 and sealed this bond with a “worth nearly $5k” ring. At 20-years-old their family grew to three with the arrival of a new baby. Like most couples, they wished to profess their love to one another in front of friends and family and started saving up for a wedding bonanza. The pair managed to save up $15,000, but after some consultation from a psychic (yes this story involves a psychic), they were told they should conduct the ceremony in Aruba. Destination weddings ain’t cheap, folks, and at an estimated average wedding cost of around $60,000 stormy seas were ahead. The bride wrote that she requested her attendees to help pay for the overseas soiree at $1,500 per head because that’s what friends are for right? To her dismay only eight guests RSVP’d, and our bride proceeded to have a break-down (to put it lightly).

Her fiance suggested a Las Vegas-style cheap wedding alternative, but the future missus would not be swayed. As you can imagine this wedding fiasco does not end well for anyone. With a story so amazing even the Twitter queen Chrissy Teigen had something to say about it. Scroll down below to see how this epic saga ended (hint: South America).

Weddings gone wrong – the premise of many great films, but, this story is not a movie it’s from a Facebook group that shares the wackiest TRUE wedding tales

One of these stories was shared on Twitter and is so crazy it’s gone viral. It is quite a long read but soooo worth it

Even actress and Twitter star Chrissy Teigen commented on it

Tons of people responded to this bonkers bride’s story with some hilarious commentary

The story could have ended at the point where the most important thing to mention about a proposal is the price of the ring. If you really love a person, a proposal should be about the proposal actually. If you say no because the ring is not big enough (or there is no ring at all), you are not worth it. Asides from that, I only feel pity here. This person likely suffers from some mental illness, possibly paranoia.

In some Asian countries, friends/relatives gives cash gifts to bride's family as usually all the wedding expenses are done by bride's side. There is no standard size of this gift, someone might give 1 dollar, someone might give 100 dollar, based on their capacity and closeness to family. But who the fcks asks the guest to contribute, I mean you can ask for a loan from close friends to fulfill your dream, but asking for 1500USD and calling people cheap c*nts is just a sign that you are a stupid b*tch yourself you got what you deserved. Fck you very much.

As a brown girl, I second this. It is indeed a tradition for the bride and groom to receive money from guests. Which happens only AFTER the guests have arrived at the venue at the day of the wedding. Us brown folks invite a million guests to the wedding, gift or no gift. This is a new level of selfishness. I wonder if she's going to ask people to fund her backpacking trip as well.
