'Entitled' bride demands car, Gucci bags and expensive flooring as wedding gifts
Many called her out over her extravagant wedding gift registry, which included designer handbags, a new car and expensive flooring for her home
Weddings might be a celebration of love and togetherness, but they sure do come with their own share of drama and controversy. And where there are weddings, there is no dearth of bridezillas. Come wedding season and brides transform into a version of themselves that perhaps nobody has ever seen. Case in point a bride who recently wrote that she expected her wedding guests to spend a minimum of $400 each on gifts. Not only did this leave people shocked but also angry as many reportedly called her out over her extravagant wedding gift registry, which included designer handbags, a new car and expensive flooring for her home.
After she shared a detailed Facebook post, the bride was criticized as "entitled" for her extravagant demands, according to 7news.com.au.
In a message to her guests, the bride, who is reportedly from the United States, laid out detailed instructions for her guests. In a screenshot included in a report done by the Australian publication, one can go through the bride's long list of acceptable presents.
"I would like to announce our gift registry to everyone!" she wrote. "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."
This included designer handbags, new flooring for her entire house, "Korean or Asian beauty products," "HIGH CLASS" [sic] paintings or decorations, and straight cash. Gucci and Louis Vuitton purses were preferred, but "Other purses are allowed but please consult me first". She specified she expected her guests to shell out at least $400 "or more gift cards to any of the following places: Sak’s Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Whole Foods, Sprouts, maybe even JC Penny. Other places are acceptable but please talk to me first," according to the screenshot.
"So as you can see, there are a lot of things on here. I am expecting everyone to spend AT LEAST $US400 on the wedding gifts," she continued.
"I’ll accept slightly lower amounts as long as you tell me first."
She also proceeded to provide a link to a spreadsheet of "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!" she added. Concluding the post, she wrote, "Thanks loves! xoxo"
Social media users were shocked to see someone make such demands for their wedding day. "I’d RSVP, eat their food and then give them a card with $400 in Monopoly money. I really hate people who use weddings as a gift grab," said one.
Another added what they would do if they were in such a situation, "If I had the kind of money to mess around, I’d buy them the most hideous tiles for the house that I could find and surprise them with the install."
Another user explained to the bride, "I’m sorry but a designer purse for the bride is not a wedding gift. Wedding gifts are for the couple to start their life together. Also who buys a couple a new car for their wedding? Like where did I go wrong?"
