Bride Accused Of Using Wedding Registry As A 'Gift Grab'

Weddings tend to bring out the worst in people, which I hate saying because it sounds bad, but we all know it's kind of true. As wonderful and special as weddings can be, they're also incredibly stressful, and we know what stress can do to people.... it makes them evil!

Some people think the world revolves around them and their wedding, but I'm so sorry to break it to you, it doesn't.

The internet is filled with truly wild wedding stories — they're as easy to find as insects in the summer, or rain in the spring.

There is a never-ending plethora of entertaining bridezilla stories — weddings are truly the gift that keeps on giving.

Speaking of weddings and gifts, one bride is coming under fire for treating her wedding registry as a luxury gift grab.

In a now-viral Facebook post first published by an Australian news outlet, a bride is demanding her guests shell out hundreds of dollars for wedding gifts before proceeding to give a very thorough list.

"I would like to announce our gift registry to everyone! To all those coming to my wedding, there [is] a list of gifts that you can bring. You MUST choose from the list or consult me first. There are no exceptions," the bride wrote.

She explained that she expected each guest to spend a minimum of $400.

"Any KitchenAid appliance over $350, this does NOT mean kitchen items like an apron or a spatula. I’m talking about their stand mixer, blender, etc," she wrote.

"Any Gucci or Louis Vuitton purses. Other purses are allowed, but please consult me first," she continued.

"Any clothes over $400 from Calvin Klein, Moschino or Nora’s. New floor tiles for the entire house (I know this one is a bit of a stretch, but I’d gladly appreciate it)."

But wait, it gets worse.

"A new car or a new trim for my car, or anything in relation to the care," she continued.

"$400 or more gift cards to any of the following places: Sak’s Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Whole Foods, Sprouts, maybe even JC Penny. Other places are acceptable, but please talk to me first. Any Korean or Asian beauty products totaling $400 or more. Any HIGH-CLASS paintings or decorations totaling $400 or more. A cash gift of $400 or more."

Naturally, the reaction to this list has been brutal, to say the least.

"I’m sorry, but a designer purse for the bride is not a wedding gift. Wedding gifts are for the couple to start their life together," one person commented.

"Who buys a couple a new car for their wedding? Like where did I go wrong?" another joked.

"I really hate people who use weddings as a gift grab," echoed a different user.
