    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.
