If WE TV is on the hunt for more women to feature on Bridezillas, we think we might’ve found one who takes the cake. An ex-bride-to-be requested that all of her guests pay a large sum of money before their wedding so that they could take care of all expenses to have her “dream wedding.” When some guests refused or were unable to afford it, the woman went ballistic and canceled the whole day.
… The woman explained her decision in a lengthy Facebook post and it honestly did not help her case. Her post begins by alerting her friends and family that she would be canceling her upcoming wedding that was scheduled to take place in just four days. She added that she and her fiancé split up and they will “not go forth with any future proceedings,” yet will remain a civil team for the sake of their young son. The woman informed her Facebook friends that she would be deleting her account and traveling out of the country for the next couple of months to cope with her loss.
She wrote: “How did this all come crashing down? Well, I invite you all on Facebook — players, bystanders, and side characters of the people in my life — to take a seat and listen.” She proceeds to take readers through an endless rant regarding her wedding planning. The woman explained that she and her ex-fiancé were high school sweethearts and that he proposed to her when she was 18. After their son was born, the couple began saving up for their wedding and eventually reached a total of $15,00. She and her fiancé were torn between two venues before a psychic pushed them to choose a more expensive one, which would cost around $60,000 total along with flights to Aruba where the wedding would be taking place. The woman wrote: “All we asked was a little help from family and friends to make it happen.” Therefore, she and her fiancé requested that each guest gift them $1,500 in cash to pay off their wedding. She wrote: “We’d sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for around $1,500.”
… Desperate to make their wedding happen, the couple reduced their fee to $1,000 per guest and launched a GoFundMe page to help them with expenses. When they exhausted all of their options for paying off the wedding, the woman’s fiancé suggested that they get married in a Las Vegas chapel to save money.
… The woman was disgusted by the idea. Even her maid of honor pointed out that the woman was asking guests for way over their budget and that it was too much for them. The maid of honor dropped out of the wedding and blocked the woman on all social media platforms, and her bridesmaids followed suit.
