seriously!! I hate asking anybody for help, more or less some strangers to pay for my wedding…… maybe you should just go to the justice of the peace and do it if you can’t afford it.

First of all, they’re crazy in my book. But then again, if you are the kind of person to actually give money to these people when they don’t have a legit reason (ie they have cancer and are asking for help, etc, but getting yourself ito credit card debt doesn’t work for me), then yo’ure just as much of a sucker

I don’t give my hard earned dough to people who don’t deserve it! I’d rather give a few bucks to a medical research group or the cancer childrens’ group than some stranger looking for a scapegoat! 

I just think it’s sad but then again, I’m not one to ask for a handout if I mess up. Fess up, then fix it yourself! It kinda makes me sick to know that woman took 20+K in donations to pay off her own debt. She got herself in it in the first place…Oh well!

 It reminds me of a guy I used to wait tables with. He spun this "Katrina" story in order to get people to give him bigger tips. It was a scam.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I can’t imagine asking strangers to pay for my wedding. It’s not like it’s a medical procedure– if you can’t afford it, scale it down to something you CAN afford!

It does strike me that this is likely some sort of scam. But I doubt anyone will be taken in by it 🙂

I read the comments on the blog and they are surprisingly civil (except for the first one, which was a little rude). Someone even recommended weddingbee as a good source for brides on a budget!

better than that website that was to save the rabbit. Did anyone see that? The guy wanted money or he would eat some cute bunny? Lots of people gave him money. Some people will buy into anything i guess.

I don’t agree with asking for money for wedding or to pay off debt that you could control. I mean if you wanna get married it’s up to you, we waited 3 years to get married because didn’t have enought money…..in way are we expecting money from family and I can say they do have more money than us. It’s embarrasing.

vistagirl!  I remember that story!  And there was another website that you could donate money to and if they raised more than the first website, then he wouldn’t eat the rabbit.  I think that was so horrid.  I couldn’t imagine!  I had my pet bunny at the time so people thought it was funny to send to me.  I didn’t like it one bit!!

I’m not encouraging send-me-money blogs (or holding bunnies hostage), and that blog smells a bit like a scam, but there is a long long tradition of people giving money for other people’s weddings. Lots of charitable organizations used to (and some still do) help needy brides. Jewish law even commands people to help brides be able to marry and set up house.

But it seems like any two working people can afford A wedding. People have to scale down their expectations sometimes!
