A guest that recently attended an ungrateful bride’s wedding has told the media about a Facebook message that was sent to her by a friend that w
as ungrateful for the monetary gift that she gave. The woman, Tanya, released the message sent from the bride, Talya, in its entirety to show just how rude it was.
Talya sent a message stating, “Hi Tanya, how are you? I just want to know is there any reason or dissatisfaction of Mike’s and I wedding that both you and Phil gave 50$ each?
In terms of the amount we got from you both was very unexpected as a result we were very much short on paying off the reception because just for the cocktail + reception alone the plate per person is 200$ (as per a normal wedding range with open bar is about) and Mike and I both have already paid for everything else including decor, photography, attire etc and didn’t expect we had to cover that huge amount for reception as well.
As I know you both live together and work, so I did not see any reason for that amount, when it comes to your wedding hopefully you’ll know what I mean.
I hope for the best as from what we receive is what we will give back. Anyways, good luck on everything.”
Tanya told the Huffington Post that she has accumulated over $40,000 dollars in debt from student loans and she felt that she and her boyfriend were being generous by giving what they did. I think that Tanya did nothing wrong by giving what she could but the bride was absolutely delusional by expecting her guests to pay for her reception.
It is not the guest’s job to pay for any component of your wedding, unless you have some sort of fund set up where people are donating to your nuptials. What do you think?
