Look, we get it.
Planning a wedding is a lot of work.
It’s time consuming, it’s incredibly stressful and it can quickly become very, very expensive.
But… that doesn’t mean that asking for donations for your dream wedding day before promptly cancelling the entire event is okay.
For one upcoming bride, this is no joke.
The Mamamia team confess: The worst request I received as a bridesmaid. Post continues after video.
In a Facebook message that was screenshotted and shared on Reddit, a bride – who asked her guests for donations to pay for her upcoming wedding in December – announced that she had decided to cancel her wedding.
Except… she doesn’t plan to return their donations.
“After much reflection and tear-filled conversation with our closest family members, we have decided to cancel our upcoming winter wedding,” she wrote.
“We thank each and every one of you for your generous early donations to our money fund. Can you believe we have raised over $30,000??? Unbelievable,” she added.
“Don’t worry, the money you’ve donated will not be spent in vain but rather used towards a honeymoon in the coming months.”
She then shared they would announce a new wedding date after their early honeymoon, before adding they would re-open their money fund for further gifts.
