A CONFUSED wedding guest has taken to the internet for advice about what to do regarding an unexpected invoice they received from the bride and groom.
They claimed after RSVPing, they received a bill of $75 per head in an expectation that they will come to the wedding and pay for their food.
In the post, the wedding guest said they were completely "stupefied" after replying "yes" with their partner to a "beautiful wedding invitation" only to be sent an invoice in return.
"Days later, we receive a sweet voicemail of thanks (for responding) followed by A REQUEST FOR $150 TO COVER DINNER AT $75.00 [PER PERSON]!!!
The poster then asked if anyone had ever heard of such a thing.

"Apparently this is a fairly common thing now, but I can't help but think it's incredibly rude," another person added.
"People (family in particular) often feel obligated to attend weddings and gifts aren't really gifts if they are considered obligations.
"I don't think anyone should be one should be expected to pay to attend a wedding."
A third person shared a similar sentiment and wrote: "That is so f**king ridiculous that I would've made a statement out of staying the f**k away.
"I'm getting worked up just thinking about someone having the nerve to do that."
Several other commenters noted that they have known of this happening within their social circles, so it does seem to be a rising trend.
