Couple ask guests to confirm their wedding with a £40 bank transfer to pay for their meal… and people are outraged

WEDDINGS are expensive, and couples often find ways to cut costs, including replacing flowers with candles and reducing the number of people.

But a couple have taken the new approach of asking guests to make a bank transfer of £40 to cover their meal to confirm their attendance.

People weren’t impressed with the couple’s request – especially since they also had a gift list.

Take from Redditthe disgruntled guest said, “The bottom of the wedding invitation reads, ‘We kindly ask that you confirm your attendance by contributing $50 per person for the meal.’ Desserts included.

“There was also a smaller card with the invitation listing three locations where they are registered for wedding gifts.

“It’s been 15 years since I planned my own wedding, so maybe it’s more mainstream now, but it’s a bit pricey and cheesy.”

She added, “Also, I’ve been to this restaurant before and can get a full meal and drink for less than $30.”

Fellow Redditors were quick to respond to the request and they weren’t impressed.

One person said, “I would send them a Venmo request for $50 for their bold *** bulls.”

Another said: “I suspect they are going to be shocked at how few people are coming to their wedding.

“It’s so corny. And just because people are doing it more and more doesn’t mean it’s okay.”

A third said: ‘This tendency to treat weddings as if they were exclusive clubs with cover charges is just nonsense.’

While another said, “You should have a wedding based on what you can afford.

“If they can’t afford the restaurant, they should have chosen a cheaper option and they want you to pay for your own food and a gift?”
