She Demanded Her Guests Pay $360 a Person to Attend Her Wedding, Banned Everyone From Wearing Fragrances and Floral-Printed Outfits, and Asked for Free Labor From the Men. It’s Crazy!

This woman couldn’t believe how entitled and spoiled this bridezilla was! So, she turned to Reddit to share the mind-boggling demands the bride gave!

OP (Original Poster) turned to Reddit’s Choosing Beggars thread to share a friend’s story about how horrifying an upcoming wedding he knew of would be.

In the thread, OP posted a screenshot of her friend’s long text message.

In the message, OP’s friend said that his friend’s niece was getting married. However, no one could have expected the bride’s demands for her big day.

The Bride’s Demands

The invitation stated that everyone was required to come early to help set up decorations and the tent. The men were then required to help break the tent back down after the ceremony.

To make matters worse, all guests must pay $360 to attend the wedding. If they don’t pay, then they don’t get to come!

Other Requirements

On top of this, guests were banned from wearing any perfume or fragrances that had “overpowering scents.”

The text stated that the bride “didn’t want them competing with the flowers she had chosen.”

Guests were also instructed to avoid floral-printed outfits, forcing them to wear plain ones. For the bride, florals are “distracting” in photos.

Cue to Leave

On the wedding day, guests would only be allowed to leave the venue “once the clean up has been done.”

All in all, the bride’s demands just keep on piling up!

Weddings are supposed to be a day to celebrate the couple’s love. However, what the bride did was essentially have everyone else pay and work for her big day!

It’s also apparent that she wants to get free labor from her guests!

This Is Unbelievable

It’s normal not to believe that any of this is true. However, OP’s friend ended by sending, “I’m not s******* you,” in his text.

In turn, OP replied, “What in the f***?”

The Community’s Pieces of Advice

The community couldn’t believe that the bride had the audacity to require everyone to pay to attend her wedding. Asking people to work for her during the wedding was also something people couldn’t fathom.

“I’m not paying to attend any wedding. That’s what the gift is for. I also will not be doing any work to attend a wedding if it’s not for my kid,” said a top commenter.

Is It Supposed to Be a Gift?

Some Redditors question whether the $360 “entrance fee” was in lieu of a gift or not. However, for Redditors, it’s still not an excuse.

This Redditor said, “I think asking for money instead of a gift is fine, but insisting that every person must pay $360 is insane. First, because insisting it from every single person is rude and entitled, and second because that is a lot of money to ask for.”

No Excuse

Community members also expressed that they believed asking someone else to fund their wedding was never okay.

“It’s not ‘fine.’ It’s never okay to ask your wedding guests to pay for attending your wedding. I know some couples have destination weddings, and a small amount of very close friends and family might pay for some travel expenses, but that is not the case here. I can’t imagine the personality type it takes to request this of your guests.”

An Entitled Bridezilla

Some understood the bride’s request of not wanting any strong fragrances. However, the difference was that others had a “valid excuse,” while the bride in the story acted entitled.

This Redditor wrote, “I requested no strong perfumes at my wedding, but that was because I have asthma and terrible allergies, and I didn’t want to get sick on my wedding day. That sounds like quite an entitled bridezilla, though.” Another commented, “Asking people not to wear it because of allergies and/or asthma is completely understandable. How strong would someone have to wear their perfume for it to compete with flowers? Then again, I’ve never been to a wedding with so many flowers that I could smell them. The idea of someone asking for $360 and free labor is unbelievable.”

No Thanks

People also said that if they were required to pay, they wouldn’t go; they’d just offer congratulations.

One said, “Hard pass. I am used to getting paid for work. Not paying someone to work. I’d say congratulations, but no thanks.” Another said, “An invitation that includes an amount to be paid to attend would be an automatic ‘Thanks; I won’t be attending.’ I imagine the couple will also be expecting a gift and free labor. I don’t know what kind of flowers the bride is having, but I can’t imagine it would be enough to actually impact the smell around the whole venue. What a mess.”

What do you think of being required to pay for your attendance? Would you give in to any of the bride’s demands?
