A bride-to-be's absurd Facebook rant about how she called off her marriage after friends and family refused to foot the bill for her $60,000 ceremony is going viral, but some say it sounds too wild to be true.
The bride, only identified as Susan, apparently took to Facebook last week to announce that she and her fiance decided to split up and call off their marriage. Susan apologizes for the announcement coming four days before her ceremony.
She said they decided to split came after friends and family didn't help cover the bill for their "dream wedding."
At the behest of her psychic, she opted to hold her wedding ceremony in a $16,000 venue and asked for cash gifts. That's where things got hairy for the bridezilla.
"We'd sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for around $1,500," she wrote. "We talked to a few people who even promised us more to make our dream come true."
She went on to claim that her maid of honor and her ex's family had offered to contribute a combined $8,000, "So our request for $1,500 for all other guests was not (expletive) out of the ordinary," she wrote. "Like, we made it CLEAR. If you couldn't contribute, you weren't invited to our exclusive wedding."
As everyone but Susan predicted, only eight people RSVPed to her wedding. So, in a panic, she resent invites asking people to just send what they could afford and set up a GoFundMe which netted $250.
She said she was shocked and disgusted by her husband's suggestion of getting married in Las Vegas and ultimately broke off their relationship. She said she would be deleting her Facebook account and go backpacking in South America for two months.
Susan reportedly deleted her post 15 minutes later.
The legitimacy of the post has yet to be established, but has generated a lot of conversation on Reddit. As one redditor commented, "this is the kind of thing that you hope is real while at the same time you hope it is not real."
A woman purporting to be Susan's cousin took to a private Facebook group to say that the post was, in fact, real and that she suspects Susan had been drinking prior to the post.
