@LadyBlackheart:  That is absolutely crazy!!! Her friend was nothing but honest and well spoken and the bride only responded with her own problems instead of sympathy!

I love the penny on top of the letter as the ultimate here’s what I think of this BS demand.  I don’t think there is a single part of that letter that I don’t agree with.  The kicker is the text that says that the bride doesn’t want to invite her friend to the baby shower.  So you don’t want your childhood friend there to celebrate your baby unless she can afford to bring a gift.  WTF.  No wonder her friend disowned her.  I wouldn’t want a friend that only counts me as gift in her address book.

@beachbride1216 Yeah the penny was a nice touch…however if it was me in this situation…if I could cut a penny in half…that’s what I would have given this crazy bitch!

I thought Bridezilla was supposed to end after the wedding? Way to go, Gretchen!

My brain just exploded!  Kudos to “Gretchen” for her response.  Was it harsh?  Yes, but her friend clearly needed a wake up call!!

The bride was completely inappropriate and rude to share her thoughts, but if we are honest, there are many Bees who  think wedding guests should “cover their plate”, in other words, pay the cost of hosting them at the reception.

I have no idea how this expectation began, but there is no other social occasion I can think of off the top of my head, where hosts expect to be renumerated for expenses occurred hosting the event. We would never hand out bills after a dinner party, or install a turnstyle at the entrance to a backyard BBQ.

It’s your wedding, you decide what you can afford.

I’m also wondering since this crazy woman is pregnant…is she going to make her baby pay the hospital bill and for vaginal rejuvination after it’s born?

that was crazy. 

it’s true, too many couples seem to focus on how much money they will get as gifts rather than the whole purpose of the wedding.  a wedding is a celebration paid for by the host(s) not a fundraiser.

I am totally not defending the bride’s actions, however, I can *sort of* understand how she feels. It does suck when you have someone come to your wedding and not bring a gift. I would never text someone and call them out on it, but we definitely had people either not get us anything, or spend far less on a gift than I had spent on their wedding the year before. Stuff like that. It sucks, but I can’t imagine ever being a bitch about it.

Wow good for Gretchen! I really can’t believe the behavior of people these days. Wow.
