CONSIDERING how the average wedding in the UK is around £30,000, it's pretty common for guests to give the newlyweds a cheque over a present.
That said, one bride has been slammed online after she tried to trick her family into paying for her £10k wedding – and then uninviting them if they refused.
The woman was shamed on the Reddit forum Bridezilla/Groomzilla by one of her brother's friends.
Giving them the fake names Karen and Matt, the user explained: "[The bride] calls her brother 2 days before her wedding.
"Says to him "I put deposits down for the hall, the photographer, the caterer, the flowers and the DJ. But I didn't know I had to pay in full on my wedding day, I thought I could pay later.
"Do you have $15,000 [£10,800] I could borrow?"
After telling her he didn't have any money to offer, a bridesmaid called him later to tell him that the wedding was cancelled.
But it was only a year later that the brother and other family members who hadn't been able to pay were informed that the wedding actually went ahead without them.
They continued: "A year later…Karen posts on her Facebook 'Happy 1 year anniversary. I can't believe it has been a year already. Here are photos from the wedding.'
"Turns out Karen, called every family member, pumped them for money. When they said no, they were uninvited.
"She had a very small wedding with a good sized party afterwards. Her own brother, grandmother and a few aunts were all uninvited. 10 years later she still complains they weren't there for her 'special day'."
Needless to say, the post racked up hundreds of comments from outraged users.
One replied: "That's…. impressive. In how awful it is."
Another added: "I'm a little impressed by the gall they had to pull this stunt AND complain people weren't there."
A third said: "Wow! Just wow! At a loss for words!"
