A bride has been knocked down as “mean” and “evil” after telling her brother that her marriage was canceled.
The bride, who was given the pseudonym Karen, had asked her sibling Matt two days before the big day if she could borrow $ 15,000 to pay the suppliers, according to a Reddit user from the US.
When Matt declined, he reportedly got a call 10 minutes later from one of Karen’s bridesmaids telling him it wasn’t right.
Post to the subreddit r / weddings, the user said that Karen tried to use the same tactic with all of her family members, including her grandmother and aunts, and promptly left them uninvited when they couldn’t cough.
‘This happened a few years ago. Names are changed to protect the culprits, ”they explained.

“I’ll call the bride Karen. Her brother Matt was a few years older and really loved his sister. Karen wasn’t the brightest light in the box.
Karen calls her brother two days before her wedding. Says to him: “I deposited the hall, the photographer, the caterer, the flowers and the DJ. But I didn’t know I had to pay the full amount on my wedding day, I thought I could pay later. Did you $ 15,000 that I can borrow? “
Her brother smiles and says to her, “No. I have nothing to give you.” They talked for a few minutes and hung up.
10 minutes later, he receives a call from one of her bridesmaids telling him the wedding has been canceled. OK. Sad but whatever.

A year later … Karen posted on her Facebook: “Happy one year anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been a year. Here are photos from the wedding.” As it turns out, Karen has called every member of the family and pumped for money. When they said no, they were not invited.
She had a very small wedding followed by a big party. Her own brother, grandmother, and a few aunts were all uninvited. 10 years later, she still complains that they weren’t there for her “special day”. ‘
In response to the post, fellow Reddit users slammed the bride calling her “ stupid, ” “ mean, ” and “ maliciously ignorant. ”
One said, “Wow, she might not have money, but she definitely got a package deal for being stupid and mean.”
Other Reddit users have slammed the bride, calling her ‘stupid’, ‘mean’ and ‘maliciously ignorant’
Another said, ‘That’s … impressive. In how awful it is, “as someone asked,” Since she said “borrow”, has she repaid anyone? ‘
A fourth wrote: ‘I’m a little impressed with the gal they had to do this stunt AND complain that people weren’t there.’
And one user said, “We call those people maliciously ignorant.”
But some redditors had questions; one of them asked, “How the hell did they go on for a whole year without realizing they were married?”
Other users had questions. One asked, ‘How the hell did they go through a whole year without a clue that they were married?’, With the original poster stating they were already living together and another saying their brother had been married for four years before told someone.
The original poster explained that they were already living together, while another revealed that their brother was married for four years before telling anyone.
Another Reddit user questioned the fact that the bride was expected to pay the balance on the big day.
‘Wait a minute, she was able to pay everyone the day of? That seems a bit strange to me? Most of the sellers I’ve seen have to be paid in full weeks, if not months, in advance, ” they wrote.
A Reddit user replied, “ My supplier didn’t send me the invoice for the total until a week before the renewal of the vow. I had the option to make changes to the budget I had left by the time we got to the date.
‘I think procrastination is more standard in case something changes with the client before their date. I did pay a 30 percent down payment, that went towards the total cost. ‘
Another user wondered how much everyone had given her to pay off the $ 15,000, while another said she “ probably expected to be able to pay for the wedding with gift money afterwards. ”
Another user asked how they could pay the vendors on the day of their wedding, while another said they hadn’t been billed for the full total of their big day until a week before renewing their vows.
One Reddit user wondered how much everyone had given her to pay off the $ 15,000, while another said she “ probably expected to be able to pay for the wedding with gift cash afterwards. ”
Other users shared their own stories about their wedding that required full payment on the day of the wedding.
One user said: ‘I was at a wedding once where several things were paid in full, day of. I remember the bride forgot the cashier’s check and the caterer said they wouldn’t serve the main course until they were paid in full with cash or check.
Cue the entire bridal party scrambling, trying to find ATMs, and withdrawing maximum allowable amounts. It was sorted eventually, but gosh.
‘We knew the bride was good for it (lifelong friend, very responsible, just didn’t realize / forgot it was a cashier check) but yes, some suppliers allow the final payment on the day of the event.
Other users shared their own stories of the wedding that had to be paid in full on the day of the wedding
“ Come to think of it, at my cousin’s wedding, I remember that the priest followed the couple right after the wedding and asked about the mandatory donation in front of everyone because they hadn’t made it yet. Clumsy … ‘
Another told their story. They said, ‘I didn’t witness this, but learned that the newlyweds at a wedding also didn’t have the money to pay for the venue. They thought they would get enough money from the guests to pay for the venue. Well … someone stole the “envelope box”. They found out halfway through.
Two families were stressed, the bride in tears, the guests shocked. Apparently everyone did their best to get the money together, so basically all the family members and also some of the guests all went to the ATM together. ‘
Another Reddit user hinted that they knew a similar story, because they ‘wondered’ if they were ‘related to her’.
