A bride has been slammed online after she asked her guests to pay $2,400 each to attend her big day.
It was the maid-of-honor who exposed the shocking request on Mumsnet, explaining she was divided about going to the wedding because of the cost.
In her post, she said that the bride wanted her guests to pay $2,400 each to attend her wedding and events which were about to take place in Spain.
The maid-of-honor said that the bride told all the guests that they must “pay for the whole week even if they can’t stay for the full time” to cover the cost of the villa.
“The thought of spending a week socializing in a villa feels overwhelming, particularly when I don’t know anyone and everyone else is in a couple, so I was going to stay only four nights,” the maid-of-honor wrote.
She then asked another guest if they could share rooms to cut the cost but it was not much cheaper as there were other expenses popping up.
Things then got even worse when she told the bride about her true feelings towards the cost.
“She started crying and said she was upset because I have never been enthusiastic about her wedding plans (which is true, when she first asked for my villa deposit, I had asked a few times about other accommodation options),” she said, adding that they got into an argument.
The maid-of-honor ended up refunding the deposit but she’s still divided on whether to attend the wedding or not after the way she was treated by the bride.
