Entitled bridal shower guests throw homemade gifts in trash, marriage doesn't last.

We've all received a confusing gift that we seemingly have no use for, but it really is the thought that counts, right?

If someone goes out of their way to buy or make a gift for you, the very least you could do is not throw it in the garbage directly in front of their face. So, when a frustrated wedding shower guest decided to vent to the gloriously petty and judgmental 'Wedding Shaming,' group about a heatbreaking experience she had at a bridal shower, people were eager to pile on.

Rude shower guests throw out handmade gifts...

So this happened to a friend of mine a few years ago. Her mom threw her a really nice bridal shower with the theme of it being a tea party. Her mom is super crafty and made all sorts of lovely decorations by hand.

For the gifts for each guest, she crocheted a tea cup and saucer and put each in a nice little gift box and filled them with different types of tea. There were maybe 80 guests there so she spent the time to crochet 80 individual tea cups and saucers for everyone.

Now the groom's side were quite bougie and throughout the shower I could hear them making snide remarks about the decor and things looking cheap and tacky. Most of them refused to participate in any games and basically all started clearing out before dessert was even served.

I stayed behind after to help my friend and her mom clean up and as we were walking out of the hall we passed a trash can piled high with her crocheted tea cups. They didn't even take the tea, just tossed the whole gift in the garbage. We even found one outside on the ground.

My heart broke when I saw how sad it made her because she worked so hard on them all. I ended up taking a bunch to give to friends and family that I knew would appreciate it. Long story short, the marriage didn't last and the groom's family was a big reason why.

Of course, the jury of wedding shamers were overjoyed to weigh in on this shower drama. Here's what people had to say:

This is one of the reasons I’m skipping favors — folks generally just don’t want them. That said, the excessive rudeness of the guests really shocks me. Don’t make snide remarks during a party, no matter what you think of it.

I spent ages putting together these tiny favour boxes and then filling them with these sweets for my friend's wedding along with another friend... For the wedding the next day these kids raided them all and took the sweets and left the abandoned boxes thrown everywhere.

A similar thing happened to a wedding I went to years ago. The father of the bride was a beekeeper and the favors were little jars of honey from his hives. At the end of the night we saw so many in the trash. Like what the heck, who throws away a not-insignificant amount of local honey?

My wedding had the opposite problem, unfortunately. My family stole a good majority of the centerpieces that I had spent weeks working on. (little succulent pots with tiny handmade clay mushrooms) I was getting ready and before the wedding even had started they freaking stashed them in their car!

What annoyed me even more was when we went to their house a few months later, the plants were all dead and they just had the dead centerpieces outside next to the trash. I stole most of my mushrooms and ceramic pots back but RIP to all the cute succulents that gave their lives.

I got 2nd hand heartbreak reading this. I would have LOVED those teacups!

Note: Don't give your guests anything that you wouldn't want to see in the trash at the end of the night. There will always be one ungrateful, disrespectful, and entitled guest at a wedding...don't splurge for the quality liquor in the open bar. Good luck, everyone!
