The girlfriend of the mother of the groom called the bride on the wire in a lengthy post, adding that her family hadn’t paid for anything.
The person wrote: ‘The bride chose her sister-in-law as her bridesmaid and then expects to fund a three-day drunken bachelorette party.

“The groom’s mother doesn’t just pay for the bachelorette party, though. She also booked the church venue, paid for the venue, and paid for other miscellaneous items, already over $10,000.

‘It’s 200 chicken tenders. That is it. That’s all the food they thought they were ordering for the wedding. 200 individual chicken tenders for 200 people. Oh, and an open bar and a wedding cake.’
