Biggest Bridezilla Ever Boldly Asks Guest To Write Her A Bigger Check

It’s wedding season, which sucks. Aside from the big ole’ reminder that you couldn’t be more single, they also cost a sh*t ton of money. Sure open bars are great, and it’s nice to not look like a total bum every once in a while, but I’m not trying to go broke just to put on a nice dress.

When it comes to buying a wedding gift for someone and you can’t afford that $400 blender they annoyingly requested, you do the next best thing: write them a check for what little money you have left over after paying your rent and student loans…and all the other bills you have.

For this woman in the UK, that amount was £100 or the equivalent of about $150. I think that’s pretty decent for a wedding gift, but apparently the bride didn’t think so. The newlyweds deemed the amount too small and sent her an email the day after the big day to request more. Seriously.

Here’s what they said:

We were surprised that your contribution didn’t seem to match the warmth of your good wishes on our big day. In view of your own position, if you wanted to send any adjustment it would be thankfully received.

Ummm, I’m sorry- WHAT?! Listen lady, we’re all just scraping by hoping to be able to treat ourselves to an iced coffee every once in a while. Sorry your Pinterest wedding was still too expensive, but you should be happy she attended and gave you anything at all.

Here’s what the woman who received that letter had to say:

I recently attended an ex-colleagues’s wedding, where, in response to a request for cash gifts, I sent what I thought was a pretty decent cheque (£100 if it matters, though I can’t help feeling it shouldn’t)

Last night I received an email which opened with a few comments about how glad they were to see everybody and how generous they’d all been, then said “we were surprised that your contribution didn’t seem to match the warmth of your good wishes on our big day. In view of your own position, if you wanted to send any adjustment, it would be thankfully received”

For someone who’s not easily shocked, I confess I’m utterly gobsmacked by this. So as not to drip feed I’ll mention that “your own position” probably refers to a recent inheritance I’ve had, which maybe they expected something from (and this is an ex-colleague, remember, not a close friend or relative)

Please, anyone, what do I do now? I’ve never come across anything like this before and still can’t quite believe they’ve done it – but since they have, should I reply, ring them, ignore it or what?

I’ll tell you what to do. You go right ahead and cancel that first check. Oh, and while you’re at it, just delete her number out of your phone too.

*Update: She has yet to get a reply, and I highly doubt the bride will ever hear from her again. Buh-bye.
