I’ve heard stories about cranky Brides, the Bridezillas of the wedding world but we’ve got to cut them some slack right? It is after all a huge, mega-huge day riddle with emotions so a tantrum here and there is to be expected. BUT!!! Not what I’m about to tell you. This goes beyond bad manners!
An ungrateful, nooooo that’s too polite, an unforgivably horrible Bride sent a message, via Facebook to a guest who attended her wedding in disgust with the gift she recieved. The really funny thing is, this guest wasn’t even a friend, she was the girlfriend of a friend and didn’t really know the Bride very well at all.
What did the Bride do? Well be warned, you will sit in disbelief for quite sometime after you read this and as Huffpost quite rightly put it – your blood will boil!
You attend a not-so-close friends wedding and generously give $100 (roughly £65) as a wedding gift. A few weeks later you receive something like this…
Hi Tanya, how are you? I just want to know is there any reason or dissatisfaction of Mike’s and I wedding that both you and Phil gave 50$ 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 (extract taken from HuffPost).
I’m surprised the Bride didn’t attach the invoice for the rest of the Reception Bill on Tanya’s message.
BAAAAAAAAAAAFOOOOOOSEEEEEE! That’s the only word for it really. It’s so unforgivable right? And athough the letter is written (for the most part) from the royal ‘we’ as in the Bride and Groom, I imagine the groom had no idea the message was posted and is now cringing now that he’s famousl on HuffPost too – Check out the note again – toward the end of the message it all changes from ‘we’ to ‘I’ this and ‘I’ that. I’ve bolded them just so you can see 🙂
Boy oh boy, if that was me that lovely Bride would have had a very honest, personally written note that had been crushed a few times in my angry fists, screwing it up into a tiny ball posted to her via snail mail. When you hit 40, your tolerance for people like that is very slim or maybe it’s my Mother-Bear instinct! I don’t know! I feel so sorry for Tanya, but also for the Bride. She clearly mustn’t have had the wedding of her dreams to have been moaning about presents. I personally couldn’t tell you what our gifts were on our wedding day and don’t even remember opening them because I was snuggly wrapped up in delerium on that day from becoming Mrs B and having the time of my life! (Isn’t that the point)!
Completely and utterly bamboozled by this story.
