Bride Cancels Her Wedding After Guests Refused To Pay $1,500 To Attend

A bride called off her wedding after her guests declined to pay the $1,500 attendance fee she requested.

Weddings are often seen as enchanting and loving events, yet the reality is they can be quite costly.

It’s common for couples to depend on their loved ones for financial help to cover the extravagant costs that a wedding can accumulate.

This bride, however, raised eyebrows by asking her guests to pay a staggering $1,500 to be part of her special day.

Things escalated when her guests resisted the steep price, leading to the bride cancelling the entire event.

The bride, known only as Susan from Canada, took to social media to share her contentious choice.

Her decision sparked shock and disbelief online.

One person commented, “This speaks volumes about her. If she truly loved him, she would have settled for a small and intimate gathering. She seems more self-centered than in love, deserving all the criticism she’s receiving.”

Another chimed in, “Typically, when you invite people to a wedding, they come to celebrate with you, not to fund the occasion!”

A third person added humorously, “She should be paying for her own wedding, not the guests. This guy really dodged a bullet!”

Susan disclosed her dream wedding cost was estimated to be $60,000. Since she couldn’t cover this amount, she expected her guests to contribute.

She had hoped to divide the expense among them, requesting a $1,500 donation from each attendee.

However, her plan was met with resistance from many invited guests.

When they refused to pay up, Susan was not pleased, to say the least…

On Facebook, Susan announced, “Dear friends, it is with deep regret that I must cancel the wedding just four days in advance.

“Regrettably, [fiancé] and I have parted ways due to some recent and unfixable issues. We have chosen to terminate our relationship and will not proceed with any future plans.”

“I explicitly requested cash gifts. How could we possibly have the wedding we envisioned without adequate funds?

“We had given up so much and only asked each guest for about $1,500. We even had discussions with a few who promised even more to help make our dream a reality.”

Susan continued, “Asking for $1,500 from each guest was not at all absurd.

“We were clear from the beginning. If you couldn’t contribute, you weren’t welcomed to our exclusive celebration. It was meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime event.”

Feeling burdened by the costs, Susan’s fiancé suggested they elope instead, which only infuriated her further.

She concluded, “I laughed at his proposal, but he was completely serious. He was envisioning those tacky, cheap, Vegas-style weddings. How could he think that was acceptable?”

“He left the room without apologizing for his terrible idea. I called my maid of honour and sobbed. Instead of comfort, she told me I was demanding too much and needed to cut back.

“How could someone who had offered me thousands then turn around, deny the funds, and advise me to lower my expectations? She was well aware that my dream was to have a lavish wedding.

“I just wanted to live like a Kardashian for a day. I ended the call by telling her she was a terrible friend, and hung up.”
