Web Desk: An angry bride-to-be forced to cancel her extravagant wedding after her guests refused to pay $CAD 1,500 each to attend.
The Canadian bride tied the knot with her childhood friend in a USD 46,020 wedding. Unfortunately, the couple decided to call off the ceremony just four days before exchanging their vows after they struggled to foot the bill.
On Facebook, the woman blamed her family and friends for the breakdown of her relationship as she vented her frustration in a lengthy post.
The post goes: ‘Dear friends, it comes with great sadness that I am announcing the cancellation of the wedding. I apologise for cancelling only four days beforehand.”
“I specifically, I mean specifically asked for cash gifts. How could we have our wedding that we dreamed of without proper funding?” she said, adding, “We’d sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for around $1,500. We talked to a few people who even promised us more to make our dream come true.”
“My maid of honour pledged $5,000 along with her planning services. We tearfully thanked and accepted. My ex’s family offered to contribute $3,000,” she added.
“So our request for $1,500 for all other guests. Like, we made it clear. If you couldn’t contribute, you weren’t invited to our exclusive wedding. It’s a once and a lifetime party [sic].”
The bride revealed that their dream wedding amounted to $60,000 and all they asked was for a little help from our friends and family to make it happen.’
After sending out the invitations, only eight guests RSVP’d with their cheque of $1,500. She reveals that to make matters worse, her ex’s family took back their offer, and more people backed out too.
Her friends quickly commented on her outburst, with one writing, “I have no words. You’re out of your mind, Susan.”
And another said, “What happened to you??? Who on hell expects that amount of money?”
