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 in October.

“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.

  • I love lists so you get them something they want and they don’t end up with 10 kettles! Usually the list is made up of items of many prices particularly the lower end to suit eveyone’s budget. – to demand people spend a specific amount is rude. you should be grateful about anything you received no matter what price. Also wedding lists are not to buy makeup and clothes and handbags, it is normally things to start your new life together like appliances, crockery, cutlery, sheets, towels etc. If you have enough of that then say please no gifts or we have been to a wedding where they said instead of gifts (as they had everything as they were all ready living together) said please donate to a charity they chose. It would be interesting to see who backs out of going!!

  • I think she has missed the point. Suggestions are fine (tastefully done and considering different budgets) demands are not.

  • Quite simply, I would not be going to this wedding! Last wedding we went to, the couple requested we pay for our own meals, I had no issue helping out there. No gifts were requested, they actually asked everyone to turn up without gifts as they had been together quite a few years, didn’t need anything, and would prefer friends and family turn up to celebrate. Gifts were not on their agenda, and it was a blast!!!

  • Wow! I would never expect anyone to spend that much on me, not even my family. If I was told I had to spend that much I think I would not attend the wedding.

  • Spoilt brat that shouldn’t be getting married. Just taking every bit of advantage from her guests that won’t probably show up after that stupid message. Go marry yourself and pay for your own shit

  • Way to go to have no one turn up or her invitees must have more money then sense.

  • Really this is so demanding, what is their marriage going to be like, maybe you are suppose to buy the groom something different to her present/s.

  • gosh she’s demanding

  • I’m happy to gift at the value this bride is demanding but thats by choice. If this was expected as part of an invitation, I’d be RSVPing “no thanks”.

  • I certainly hope I never meet anyone like this bridezilla. This is so over the top it’s ridiculous. Maybe what she really wants is everyone to buy the gifts but not turn up for the wedding.

  • wow – if she was that demanding with her wedding gifts, just imagine how demanding she will be for the first child gifts! – not someone I would want to celebrate a wedding for – if it was me I’d probably tell the groom he was making a financial mistake marrying her!

  • Never heard like this story before.

  • Probably not someone I’d want to remain friends with, let alone go to her wedding. What ever happened to the underlying reason for a wedding – to celebrate the love between two people?

    Reply


  • There is no way I would ever be friends with someone like this! The whole point of a marriage isn’t about what gift to get it’s about marrying your soulmate celebrating that. If someone had those to moms and told me I would definitely not be going to the wedding !!

  • Well she must have rich friends and family, I am amazed at the demands, I hope they get a good meal at the reception.
