This Bride Canceled Her Wedding After Guests Refused to Give Thousands of Dollars to Help Fund It

Okay everyone, buckle up, because this might be the most insane wedding story you'll hear this year. On Saturday, one Twitter user, @0lspicykeychain, tweeted screenshots of a status she saw shared in a wedding shaming group on Facebook. (To clarify, a wedding shaming Facebook group is exactly what it sounds like—a place on the internet where people go to shame weddings.) What follows is a truly incredible tale filled with broken promises, outrageous expectations, and a bride who thought 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...

If it's even real. Very few people are THAT self-entitled. That's pretty much full-blown psychopath on the bridezilla scale.

My first wedding cost $25. Worked fine, for the time. I think the divorce 6 years later cost us $50. Total agreement and total DIY. Just filled in the forms and we went to court together.

My second wedding probably cost $5000, including the cubic zirconia my wife wanted instead of a diamond, the rented hall, the band, and the caterer. We had barbeque from our favorite restaurant. Then we used all they money we didn't spend on a "dream" wedding to start buying real estate.
