Bride and groom are called “incredibly tasteless” to invite guests to a destination wedding – and expect them to go through an hour-long TIMESHARE presentation
- A Redditor said the American couple are getting married in Cancun, Mexico in April
- Guests are expected to pay their way to the destination and then go through a timeshare presentation
- These sales pitch can take hours, but visitors usually receive a gift, such as free hotel stays or gift vouchers
- But the guests don’t get freebies, so many think that the bride and groom “light up guests” and get the benefits themselves
A shockingly entitled bride and groom expect their guests to fly from the US to Cancun, Mexico in April for a destination wedding – and go through an hour-long timeshare presentation upon arrival.
A Redditor has the horrible story this week, saying that the fiancee expects those flying away for the wedding to endure a long sales conversation for a timeshare during the wedding weekend.
What is worse, though, is that going through these sales talks usually gives people the right to receive gifts, from gift vouchers to free hotel stays – but that’s not the case here, and the Redditor accuses the couple of ‘scamming their guests’ to get extras for his.
Rude! A bride and groom expect their guests to fly from the US to Mexico in April for a destination wedding – and an hour-long timeshare presentation upon arrival
The Redditor explained that it was her friends, Katie and Tim, who were invited to the wedding in Cancun on April 20.
“Katie hesitated for a few reasons, the obvious is finance,” wrote the Redditor. “Flight and hotel would be at least a thousand … and she would have to take at least three days off from work because the wedding is on 4/20 (a Monday!).
“Her boyfriend, Tim, wants her to” make it a vacation. “
‘But here is the kicker: the bride and groom want the guests to go through a timeshare presentation]to come! It is part of the package or something … “
A timeshare is a vacation object that is partially owned by several people. Every co-owner has the right to use the property for a certain time.
In other words, a person can pay a large fixed amount, so that he can stay in the building for several weeks of the year. These weeks are often laid down in the contract.
But usually there is a reward when people go through a sales conversation for a timeshare – whether they buy or not. The rewards can vary from gift vouchers to hotel points to free hotel nights, to extras such as massages and meals.
In this case, however, the wedding guests get nothing – which makes the Redditor believe that the bride and groom scored an important deal in exchange for supplying an audience for the sales pitch.
Wow, just when you thought you had heard all the possible variations of stickiness related to weddings … people are finding new ways to go deeper
“She told me that she still has to pay everything for her trip, although I said I think the bride and groom light up their guests a little,” the Redditor wrote.
“Perhaps the bride and groom benefit from some sort of benefits from guests who attend a timeshare [presentation] while the guests do not benefit from it? “
Commentators are disgusted with the behavior of the bride and groom.
“Wow, just when you thought you had heard all the possible variations of tackiness with regard to weddings … people are finding new ways to break the depths,” one wrote.
“This is INCREDIBLY tasteless. Having to go through a 3-5 hour demo (yes, these things take a long time) on a “vacation” doesn’t sound like a vacation to me. Very scam indeed, “another wrote.
“This is so weird and incredibly tasteless,” said a third. “I suppose the wedding party should be the free stuff and not only have their guests pay the full price, but also have to sit in a sales pitch?! Gosh, just do the full price without the timeshare of the wedding. “
