A womans long-winded tirade blaming her friends and family for
canceling her dream $60,000 wedding has gone viral on social
The bizarre story has received a massive response after being
shared on Facebook and Reddit by a woman identified as the
The Facebook post starts with, It comes with great sadness that
I am announcing the cancellation of the [censored] Wedding. I
apologize for cancelling only 4 days beforehand.
The bride, identified as Susan, then reveals that she and her
fiancé have broken up due to some recent and irreparable
problems before going on to blame her friends and family for
ruin[ing] my marriage and life.
The woman explained the couple met at 14 and worked together on
her familys farm. They then went to community college and
worked and saved to become financially stable.
We managed to save up nearly $15K for a wedding. Since our love
was like a fairy tale, we wanted an extravagant blow out
wedding, one where our son could be included, the woman wrote.
We started touring venues and were torn between two. A local
psychic told us to go with the more expensive option, and we
thought why the hell not?

The bride went on to say during her foul-mouthed rant that all
the couple needed for their grand $60K wedding was a little
Our dream wedding amounts to 60K all included with flights to
Aruba. All we asked was for a little help from our friends and
family to make it happen.
The 17-paragraph outburst said the pair specifically asked for
cash gifts from the guests.
How could we have OUR wedding that WE dreamed of without proper
funding? Wed sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for
The bride also explained she made it CLEAR. If you couldnt
contribute, you werent invited to our exclusive wedding. Its a
once and a lifetime [sic] party.
Much to the brides dismay, she and her fiancé quickly
discovered that people were not willing to pay $1,500 to attend
their special day.
So we sent out RSVPs and only 8 people replied and sent us the
check. We were f---ing livid. How was this supposed to happen
without a little help from our friends, she wrote.
Desperately, we resent our invites and asked people to donate
what they could. I mean seriously people, what is $1,000? What
is $1500? Clearly, not a lot, she continued. We also set up a
go fund me. That only got us $250. At this point we were
The bride said her now-ex suggested they get married in Vegas to
save on costs, but she laughed in his face.
He wanted those cheap, raggedy, filthy, whore like Vegas
weddings, she wrote. Am I some Hooch piece of f---ing trash, a
My ex left the room and didnt apologize for his horrid
suggestion, she wrote.
The enraged woman then wrote that she took out her frustrations
on her Maid of Honor who had promised her $5,000 before backing

How could someone who offered me THOUSANDS OF F---ING DOLLARS
then deny me MY promised money and then tell me to shift down my
budget???? She KNOWS my f---ing DREAM was a blowout wedding. I
just wanted to be a Kardashian for a day and then live my life
like normal, she wrote. I called her a filthy f---ing poor
excuse of a friend, and hung up.
The bride ended her rage by restating that she wanted her
friends to pay for her dream wedding.
How hard would it to [sic] have been to f---ing donate friends?
Do I matter to you? Just f---ing give me money for my wedding. I
wont even sugarcoat. I wont even pretend thats not what I
wanted. It was for a dream.
Many on Reddit and Facebook asked if the post was real,
commenting that it was too strange to be true.
Is this real?! one wrote.
Its too much! It cant be real, can it? another wrote on
However, the brides cousin posted an update ensuring it was
real on the Wedding Shaming forum on Facebook where she posted
the original screenshots.
Yes, this is a living breathing human being, she wrote.
Clearly she has entitlement issues, but I have never known her
to be this obnoxious.

Honestly, over the years shes been nice & overall sweet. No
red flags come to mind. She has humble beginnings and has been
working on her parents farm since she was young, the cousin
The brides cousin called out social media and her family
members obsession with Kardashian stuff over the past few
years as the cause for the meltdown. The cousin also felt the
post may have been written while the bride-to-be was drinking.
Its especially vulgar and incredibly embarrassing. It was only
up for maybe 15 minutes before she took it down, the cousin
wrote in the follow-up.
Several have commented on the ridiculous request from the
betrothed couple. Some on Reddit even called the woman
Demanding $1500 is insane, one wrote on Reddit.
What an entitled delusional individual. Pay for your own damn
wedding. So glad he walked, another wrote, referring to the
