Wtf, I can’t believe some of the things I read on here. What is wrong with people. This puts me off weddings and how materialistic they are!

Nope nope nope nope nope. 

If you feel the need to respond I would say “I bought the frame at XXXX,  you guys should be able to replace the glass there.”

Two can play at her game, I’d text back “Omg, so sorry to hear your husband broke the glass. But I’m glad you let me know because now I feel less awkward letting you know I spilt red wine on my dress at your wedding. The glass can be replaced for about $30 but my dress costs $110, so do you want to send me the $110 and I’ll send you a replacement glass or do you want to just subtract the $30 from the $110 and replace it yourself? Either way e-transfer is fine.”

I think this needs to go on the wall of shame with the cake faux pas post for entitlement.

I would respond with “lol” because surely she must be joking.

You mean ex-friend, right?  Because I’d never talk to that asshole again.  I’d block her and she’d be dead to me.  Ain’t no coming back from that bullshit.

skier11 :  yikes. She sounds like a treat! Maybe remind her SHE broke it. You gave a gift. 

 

The cake thread was a few weeks ago from a gal who made her friend (the bride) a deluxe wedding cake, that she spent a ton of time and money on. The bride had actually got a quote for 1000.00 for the exact cake. So needless to say, due to the time and cost, she considered the cake the gift to the bride and actually had referred to it as such. Fast forward to after the wedding, the bride is giving the friend crap in a group text about how a cake is NOT a gift blah blah. It was ridiculous.

They broke it, not you.

 

If they broke it a year down the road, would they expect you to replace it then too?  That’s ridiculous.

What in the actual fuck is wrong with this woman?!?!

I’d write back and say, “Then I guess we’re even. I didn’t have a friend at all, either.”

Jerk!
