At times, it seems as if people forget that the wedding party and guests be guests and not customers.

A young woman posted a story on Reddit about how her cousin was getting married and planned on charging a fee to each and every guest that came in.

To make things even more unusual, as the bride-to-be also included in the plans for the creation of an “exclusive guest list” for people who don’t want to wait in line to get to the wedding.

According to the Reddit post, the bride made an announcement that the guests would have to pay $50 to get in to the wedding party, and anyone who paid in advance would get on an exclusive list of guests.”

Reddit user DaintySheep shared her story on the site is the forum, where, she explained, “and I’m a 19-year-old college student, I don’t have a lot of debt, but I don’t throw my money like I’m rich. I have a nephew (26), the wedding is on a Sunday, and we’re not really close, but we have a good relationship with you.”

Her story continued to explain that the bride-to-be “made an announcement this week saying that they are charging $ 50 for each and every guest that comes in. They said that they would be able to Venmo for her money, so that there will not be no [sic] problems, and anyone who has paid will have to be added to the exclusive guest list, ” which basically means that you don’t have to wait in line while the other guests pay for it.”

DaintySheep said that, after reading the message, she was “shocked.” She told me that she was writing to her brother to ask why, but the bride said, “she wanted to get the money she spent on her special day. I told her that I would not be able to get it, because it was a disgrace, and that’s what I want for her on her special day. They got in touch with my aunt, and my aunt called me up on the cheap, and rude. My parents have offered to pay for my plane ticket but I refused.”

While it’s common for wedding guests to choose a gift (or check) with them to the new few, a lot of Reddit users seemed to agree with the post from the author about the outrageousness of requiring guests to pay for a period of time.

“I get people don’t have a lot of money to throw a big, beautiful wedding,” one user wrote, “why can’t they stay within their budget, and don’t expect their guests to pay for their big day.”

Another user has pointed out that “she probably would have gotten the $100+ per person just by the gifts, and pays for their loss,” if she hadn’t said anything. Now, she’s going to lose guests and so many of the ones that do come up, consider the $ 50 application fee with their “gift” and with good reason), not for her, nothing more.”
