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.

  • This has to be a joke. If it’s not, then I wish the groom all the luck in the world or, better yet, RUN! :)


  • I’ve never heard of anyone asking for clothes for their wedding present before either? I’m sure her guests won’t buy these things!


  • I wouldn’t have any interest in going to such a wedding. Her requests are absurd.


  • I would decline and there would be no wedding present. I hope her husband-to-be sees her list and objects strongly. Unless he is a millionaire I can’t see that marriage lasting long. The stress of constant high debt and high risk of becoming bankrupt would probably result in massive disputes and kill off their love


  • I really hope this isn’t real and the clown pic means its fake?
    no one should be considering themselves that entitled that they demand that much spent on them.
    inconsiderate people like this is why I don’t have friends, no considerations for people doing it tough.
    Wedding presents should be a “must do” it should be up to the guest if they can or cant, the brie should understand and have empathy and compassion


  • oooohhh $500 worth of gifts! phew! I’d probably not be friends with her anymore..lol


  • I am loving the comment: “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?”


  • What an entitled cow. Since when to do wedding gift include gifts for the one person? This woman needs a serious reality check!


  • Wedding are expensive but dont except your guest to buy you 500$+ gifts.not everyone can afford it.maybe just skip your wedding celebration save money and buy all those things by yourself. I am pretty sure more guests will be so happy to be invite to small celebration or suprice wedding other big fancy one. We had small celebration (cost us 2 k including my dress,my husband suit, small reception) we didnt except any wedding gifts.
    Btw if someone of my friends or family post something like that on Facebook i will defenetly consider my attendances…it was rude


  • How selfish and self absorbed this delusional bride is.


  • I was maid of honour for a woman who worked out that her wedding was costing a total of about $500 per guest and decided that was how much everyone should spend on her gifts. I gave her a (beautiful, classy, professional looking) handmade gift and she looked like she wanted to stab me. It was about $50 in materials so I was a total cheapskate. Nevermind the months I spent working on it. For my time alone it was worth tens of thousands.

    She and I aren’t friends anymore.
