Honestly ridiculous

Let’s be honest, most weddings aren’t without their fair share of drama. From best men proposing to their girlfriends during the ceremony, to brides asking bridesmaids to lose weight, there’s always something that goes a little bit wrong, but this latest story really takes the cake (scuse the pun).

User FuckyDuck took to Mumsnet to vent her frustration at a very demanding bride and groom who’d invited her to their US wedding.

She wrote, ‘We have been 'invited' to a wedding WEEK in the USA, prices starting from £3k, with 5 organised events, each with their own dress code, and given a link to the Amazon wish list/registry where the cheapest item is £300! Children are welcome on the holiday but not at the ceremony, and we're to chip in to the brides accommodation the night before the big day to show her our love?!’

Yep, you read that right. Not a small ask is it? Especially as the whole thing would cost poor FuckyDuck the grand some of £5.5.k.

Needless to say, the internet did not appreciate this bride’s attitude and users were quick to side with the guest.

User expatinscotland wrote, ‘I'm so surprised you haven't leapt over yourself to accept this pile of wank. I think every engaged couple needs to be reminded that, other than your nearest and dearest, no one really gives a fuck that you're getting married.’

Another pondered, ‘Wonder if they've already had refusals from all sane and/or impoverished family and closer friends.’

Meanwhile, user EdmundCleverDogs helpfully provided a gift alternative, ‘Definitely buy them an Oxfam goat.’

We think we can all agree the RSVP here will be a big fat no.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
