IT’S no secret that many wedding guests have to fork out a fortune every year – especially when you take into consideration gifts, new outfits and hen dos.
But one Mumsnet user has revealed that a bride and groom-to-be have asked attendees to spend a total of £5,500 for the week-long celebration.
The internet user took to the popular forum to reveal: “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 bride’s accommodation the night before the big day to show her our love?!
“Total costing is £5,500 for a WEEK.”
Surprisingly, the Mumsnet poster also confessed that the couple hadn’t even attended their wedding.
They said: “Everything is personalised, down to the f***ing envelope of the invitation.
“Absolutely ludicrous, the best thing being – it’s someone DH used to be friends with before he moved away :/ they didn’t even come to our wedding!”[“Source-ndtv”]
