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.
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.”
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?”
