Considering many couples are choosing to get married much later in life, is it appropriate to expect retired parents to pick up the tab for a massive, extravagant fancy resort hotel wedding? So, when a screenshot of a bride's rant ended up in the gloriously petty and judgmental Reddit group, 'Wedding Shaming,' the jury of shamers was eager to unpack this mess.
Of course, people were ready to tear her apart. Here's what the jury of wedding roasters had to say about this tone-deaf rant...
At least she knows her mom isn't a 'money bank.'
I can't imagine admitting you don't have a good relationship with your mother, saying the mother already put $800-900 towards the wedding, and then also saying that you'd wish she offer to put enough money for a deposit for anything in the same post. Make it make sense. Also, it's YOUR wedding so YOU should be paying for it, not expecting handouts because it's more than you can afford. Idiot.
Radical idea: have the wedding you can afford
“Christmas money I get from grandma” sounds like the bride is 18 years old or something.
“It’s not an expensive wedding.' But can’t afford it somehow.
Everyone agreed unanimously here that this bride needs a severe reality slap and a quick flight back down to planet Earth before asking her mom to contribute any more money than she already has. Good luck, everyone...
