If you've ever attended or thrown a wedding, you know to expect some guidelines—no matter how loose or simple—that make sure things run at least kind of smoothly. The vast majority of these guidelines are very reasonable (don't wear jeans, don't wear white, no need for a gift, etc.), but occasionally they can get way out of hand. Take, for instance, the expectations of one bride that went viral this week.
As Cosmo reported, Reddit user u/laika_cat uploaded a screenshot of an email sent to guests of a wedding. The email purported to be from a "wedding coordinator," but the ridiculous demands, not to mention the numerous spelling/grammar errors, call that into question. The deceptively short list of ridiculous rules includes a $75+ gift for admission, a mandatory hashtag, and no talking to the bride. Without further ado:
Rules and regulations:
Please arrive 15-30 minutes early.
Please DO NOT wear white, cream or ivory.
Please do not wear anything other than a basic bob or ponytail.
Please do not fave a full face of makeup.
Do not record during the seramony.
- Do not check in on FB until instructed.
- Use #[REDACTED] when posting all pictures.
- DO NOT TALK TO THE BRIDE AT ALL.
- Everyone will toast with Rémy. No acceptance.
Lastly must come with gift 75$ or more or you want be admited in.
The email ends with the writer asking guests to call them if they "have any questions or need clarification," and we're left to assume that their phone was probably ringing nonstop for the next few days.
This isn't the only bride who has unwittingly gone viral for charging an admission fee for her wedding. A month ago, one couple reportedly had to call off a wedding days before the scheduled date, all because not enough people were willing to send them the $1,500 attendance fee.
