Bride canceled wedding after guests refused to give thousands of dollars to help fund it


This might be the most insane wedding story you’ll ever hear.

One Twitter user tweeted screenshots of a status she saw shared in a Facebook group.

What follows is a truly incredible tale filled with broken promises, outrageous expectations, and a bride who thought that asking each of her guests to contribute $1,500 to her wedding was a reasonable request:

In the status, the anonymous woman shares that she and her partner broke up due to “recent and irreparable problems.” She then goes onto explain how the two met at age 14, fell in love, got engaged at 18 (with a $5,000 ring), and had a child together in their early 20s. They then saved up about $15,000 for their dream wedding but quickly discovered that their actual dream wedding would cost about $60,000.

“All we asked was for a little help from our friends and family to make it happen,” she wrote.

The couple asked each wedding guest to contribute $1,500 to their wedding, along with a $5,000 pledge from the maid of honor, and a $3,000 pledge from the groom’s parents

They set up a GoFundMe page only to receive $250. Her fiancé suggested a Vegas wedding instead and her maid of honor told her to stick to her budget.

No doubts weddings are one in a lifetime affair for many and people do want the best for that special day. There is no harm in following your heart and Going wild! Just maybe not ask-your-loved-ones-for-thousands-of-dollars wild!
