Bridezilla cancels $60k wedding due to “rude” guests

Every now and then, a gem of a story pops up on Reddit that makes you pause and ponder the state of humanity.

The kind of story that makes you think: is this for real?

I mean, seriously – is there actually a real person with genuine feelings behind this, or has this been create purely to go viral?

This week’s version is Susan, a Bridezilla from Canada – a loose cannon who apparently wanted her friends and family to chip in $1500 each so she could afford her “dream wedding”.

“I SPECIFICALLY, I mean SPECIFICALLY asked for cash gifts,” she allegedly wrote.

“How could we have OUR wedding that WE dreamt of without proper funding?”

It all blew up in her face when her guests started questioning the wisdom in giving her thousands of dollars towards her nuptials. Traditionally, the idea of being a guest at someone’s wedding is that they pay for the pleasure of celebrating with you, not the other way round – someone needs to give Susan the memo.

When her guests starting backing out, Susan started getting desperate, setting up a GoFundMe page. When that only furnished $250, she realised her “dream wedding was becoming a nightmare”. That’s when she really started getting angry – you can see full screenshots of the drama here – eventually calling off both the wedding and the marriage.

Her friends asked for the deposits they had paid back, and she refused, claiming she was keeping the money for “emotional distress”.

The saddest part about this sorry affair, if it’s true, is the fact that the couple involved has a son together, according to her rants.

I can only hope that this is a case of internet creativity gone wild… but that’s probably wishful thinking.

She’s not the first crazy bride to get carried away with her wedding wishes.

There was also the bride who demanded her best friend dye her red hair to brunette for the Big Day… And another one, who wanted her friends to chip in for a $10,000 designer wedding dress.

What ever happened to the idea that a wedding is about marrying the love of your life, not throwing the perfect party?!
