We thought a wedding is all about celebrating forever love. But it’s clearly more about forever gifts for this bride.

A demanding bridezilla has shared the crazily long list of presents she would like to receive from her guests, together with a spreadsheet to make sure there are no double-ups.

The not-so-subtle gift suggestions included $580AUD in cash or a gift card to a luxurious department store, as reported in the Sun.

Other ideas included designer clothes and accessories plus expensive kitchen appliances.

Bossy Bride

The bride shared her list on Facebook, which was then re-published on Reddit. On the post, she wrote:

“So we are all aware that my wedding is coming up.

“To all those coming to my wedding, there are a list of gifts that you can bring. You MUST choose from the list or consult me first. There are no exceptions.”

She then went on to share her desired gifts:

“Any KitchenMaid appliances over $350 ($AUD510) this does NOT mean regular kitchen items like an apron or spatula. I’m talking about their stand mixer, blender, etc.

“Any Gucci or Louis Vuitton purses. Other purses are allowed but please consult me first.

“Any clothes OVER $400 ($A580) from Calvin Klein, Moschino, or Nora’s.”

Amazingly, the bolshy bride even asked for new floor tiles for her home, although she did admit that it was a “bit of a stretch” but “I’d gladly appreciate it”.

To top it off, she also asked for a new car “or anything in relation to the car,” she wrote.

But there was more:

“Any Korean or Asian beauty products totalling $400 or more, any HIGH CLASS paintings or decorations totalling $400 ($A580) or more, or a cash gift of $400 ($A580) or more.”

The woman rounded off her list by saying while there is a lot of things on her list, she still expects everyone to spend at least $A580 on wedding gifts.

“I’ll accept slightly lower amounts as long as you tell me first,” she posted.

“Also, everything on here is first come, first serve. Here’s a link to the spreadsheet where you can find who’s bringing what.

“Remember to apply early if you don’t want to get me a Gucci purse or anything you don’t want to get.”

Bridal Backlash

The response to the bride’s post was harsh and immediate with people shocked at her demanding behaviour.

“This is just rude tbh. Presents aren’t because you are entitled to them. They’re because I want to show you my love and appreciation,” said one comment.

“I’d show up with whatever I thought she’d like that I could afford and if I’m turned away at the door I’ll return my gift and get my money back,” said another.

What About The Groom?

Many pointed out that the groom was completely left out of the gift list.

“She also says ‘my’ wedding. I hope the groom gets the hell out of there!”

Another shared: “What about the groom? Aren’t wedding gifts supposed to celebrate your union.”

Many Reddit users said guests should ignore the present list completely.

“I really hope that everyone invited to the wedding thinks the exact same thing so every present they go to open is a bumper sticker or some car item that costs less than $5,” said one.

Another joked: “I’m gonna go ahead and spend $400 ($A580) on a divorce lawyer as that should cover the groom’s first hour with him. Anyone want to pitch in?”

Do you think the present list is a bit overboard? Tell us in the comments below.


  • You just can’t be serious woman! Shame on you!


  • I would definitely be sending a ‘Sorry, unable to attend’ card to this wedding invite.!


  • I love that there are “no exceptions”. How can she stop anyone??


  • Time to RSVP that you are unable to attend!


  • What I get from this is she’s not marrying because she loves her future husband, she’s getting married so she can get everything she’s ever wanted for herself. If I was the groom I’d be running a mile in the opposite direction. My list was just anything you thought I could use in our new home of just bring themselves. I only wanted to celebrate the fact I was marrying my soulmate and gifts were just a nice thing to receive. Some of our gifts included an ironing board, and iron, double fleecy sheet set, entree glass dish and tea towels and bath towels. To me they were wonderful presents that I could use. I wish the groom the sense to get out while he can.


  • Wow…what a self-centred b***h. I would just send regrets with a message to get over herself. Gifts are not a necessity when attending a wedding. They should be from the heart if you really want to. Weddings are not about demanding presents but about spending time with those we want to share our special day with.


  • She’d want to think herself lucky if anyone would come after that- I certainly wouldn’t! It’s not about gifts and c’mon most of them were specifically just for her- beauty products and purses! I feel sorry for the husband!


  • Absolutely! I love to choose gifts from the heart, with love and thought, but that will have meaning and be wanted. I’m over this sense of entitlement.


  • This bride has the ultimate backlash to the ridiculous price of weddings these days… what was meant to be a religious ceremony, free, for all, for everyone to support and celebrate the union and love of a couple has become a money making exercise that everyone seeks to profit off… even churches who hire out venues… Perhaps she wont get any guests. Good on her. And wont have all the silly expenses. Then she can get on with her life and marriage in peace. Either that or she is demanding, greedy, selfish and everything else she has been judged her to be!


  • What a demanding spoilt person. I wouldn’t want to go to this wedding and if I was family, they would be told that I wouldn’t be buying anything that cost the amount that she was specifying. Poor husband to be!!!


  • I wouldn’t even go if there was an expectation of a present that expensive disgusting behavior


  • I think if the bride was this rude I probably wouldn’t even want to go to the wedding! !!


  • That’s very rude I deed of the bride to DEMAND such expensive gifts. Guests are going to spend money for new outfits or babysitters don’t forget!! If it was me, I would not attend but just sent a gift voucher. What & how it would look for both sets of parents especially the bride’s parents. If I’m the mother of the bride. I’ll hide in shame!!


  • Wowsers! What a loon.
    What does a Gucci or LV purse have to do with anything remotely wrong associated?! And a car? Does she think she’s Kim K or Paris Hilton surrounded by friends and family who have that kind of money to splash out on her lavish gift requests?


  • Jeez imagine what she’s like to live with.
