I’m getting married, here’s why I tell guests not to bother coming unless they spend at least $50 on a gift
- Bride criticized for asking for wedding gifts
- Told guests to spend at least $50
A young woman has come under fire after revealing that she and her husband made it mandatory for guests to bring gifts to their wedding.
The bride and groom said that ‘receiving gifts’ is one of their love languages, and anything under $50 worth will do.
Guests who show up on the day will be turned away according to the bride who loves the present.
“My fiancé and I have a lot of people in our families who love to show up empty-handed at events,” she said.
“This is really unpleasant for us,” he added.
A bride has come under fire after revealing that she has made it mandatory for guests to bring gifts to her wedding.
The $50 per head minimum was set because it’s “affordable,” he explained.
“Everybody can afford to bring something,” he said.
Strict instructions were included in the wedding invitations, to give everyone fair warning.
But the young bride’s expectations have been described as greedy and vulgar by others in a popular wedding shaming group.
A screenshot of his original post was added to the wild group, shocking hundreds of men and women.
“The fact that anyone thinks that gifts of any price are ‘mandatory’ is crazy,” said a woman, surprised.
“I wonder if this wedding had any favors or not as their love language is giving gifts,” added another.
‘Who says that? My love language is receiving things. We all love receiving gifts, but that shouldn’t be what you need to be happy in relationships,” a third complained.
Others pointed to their own love languages and how they would complicate a wedding if they prevailed.
‘My love language is physical contact. By OP’s logic, at my wedding, it should be acceptable for me to require everyone to give me a hug on sight. See how ridiculous that logic is? Don’t use love language to justify shitty behavior,” said one woman.
Others called the couple “selfish” and told them to just “have your party and move on.”
The bride and groom claim that they have too many free chargers in the family and said that their love language is receiving gifts.
Many of the women in the group pointed out that ‘receiving gifts’ is not ‘love language’.
‘When gifts are your love language, it means that you put a lot of effort into getting gifts for people, or you pick things up for no reason if they remind you of someone you care about.
‘It means you put a lot of meaning into the thoughtful gifts you get. It’s not about monetary value and it’s definitely not about mandatory donations,” they said.
Another woman said that she did not expect any gifts and did not receive any.
“My life has progressed very well,” he said.
More than 400 people left comments on the post, none of them agreeing with the idea of a mandatory giveaway.
