‘Thrifty’ bride who wants to spend only £100 annoys Facebook wedding asking for too free things

- Advertisement -

A thrifty bride-to-be who took to Facebook in the hope of bagging freebies for her big day got a short shrift from unimpressed social media users. 

The bride, believed to be from Michigan, posted in the Facebook group Buy No Things, Ann Arbor, a group where neighbors can swap unwanted items, asking for decor and accessories for free. 

She explained she was trying to organise the wedding for under $100, and said she felt compelled to ask strangers for these items because god ‘told her to’. 

A woman from Cork alerted the Facebook group That’s It, I’m Wedding Shaming, revealing the bride’s stream of requests, which included decorations, a veil, candles, a champagne fountain, ring bearer pillows, cake toppers and glass jars. 

Many agreed the bride was just profiteering from the kindness of others and labelld her ‘entitled’.  

People called out the bride for her unrealistic budget and because she kept asking others for free things

‘Y’all I cannot make this s*** up. She keeps posting and is DEAD SERIOUS,’ the woman said as she shared screenshots of the bride’s requests.  

The bride explained that her wedding is scheduled for the end of September, and that she wanted to arrange it for less than $100. 

She explained the wedding would be rainbow themed, and that she had managed to sort her dress,  bouquet, boutonnieres, venue, food, music and clean up for an impressive $26.80, presumably with no cost involved for most of them. 

Then the requests for free items from the group started coming thick and fast.

Numerous times, she asked for a Halloween cauldron to replicate the ‘end of the rainbow’ money myth. 

She also asked for some rainbow-colored yarn to complete her decor. 

For her own outfit, she asked for a small veil to prop over a hat, and a mustard seed pendant necklace, because she had lost one, a family heirloom which was close to her heart. 

The bride kept coming up with new asks, which included accessories for her decor, clothing accessories and even jewellery

She asked for a champagne fountain that she planned on filling with chocolate milk, her fiancé’s favorite drink.  

Possibly feeling self-conscious about asking for so many freebies, the woman explained God had told her to ask for all these items. 

She then added that she was currently staying at a hotel with her partner until the wedding, and asked if anyone could lend them a toaster to make the grilled cheese sandwiches they’ve been craving.  

Her behavior did not fly with the members of the wedding shaming community, who could not believe how entitled the bride was being, saying she did not deserve to call herself ‘thrifty.’

At one point, the bride, who had also asked for a veil, revealed she was staying at a hotel and asked if someone could let her use a toaster

‘Well God is telling me “ask and you shall receive a million dollars”, sooooo,’ one said.  

‘Self entitled much?’ asked another.

‘Wow shes gonna blame this s*** on God,’ said another.   

‘I know how we’re planning the weddings going forward. With an unrealistic budget, and an optimism that God wants us to throw a tacky wedding,’ said one bride-to-be. 

People called the bride out for saying 'God' had asked her to ask others for freebies. Others criticized her rainbow theme

‘This post is the gift that keeps on giving. Or taking,’ quipped another. 

Some also took a dig at the bride’s taste level, saying her wedding seemed to be planned by a child, due to the colorful theme.  

‘This sounds like the dream wedding of a preschooler complete with her imaginary friend god telling her what to add next.

‘OMG what is wrong with her??? Maybe it‘s just a wedding in her mind,’ one said.
