Bride Wants Guests To Pay Entrance Fee To Get On 'Exclusive Guest List' And Skip Line

Someone posted a story on Reddit on how their cousin planned to charge every guest an entrance fee. The bride also set up an exclusive guest list for people who didn’t want to “wait in line” to enter the wedding. Reddit user DaintySheep shares the unusual story. “I’m a 19-year-old student, I don’t have a lot of debt, but I can’t be throwing my money around like I’m rich. I have a cousin (26), her wedding is on Sunday, we’re not really close, but we do have an okay relationship.”

She continues on that the bride, “made an announcement this week saying that she’ll be charging 50 dollars for every guest who’s coming. She said that they can Venmo her the money so there won’t be no [sic] problems and everyone who paid will be added onto the ‘exclusive guest list’ which basically means you won’t have to wait in line while other guests pay.”

The Reddit user says that upon reading the message, she was incredibly shocked. The bride says she “wanted to get the money she spent on her special day back. I told her I wouldn’t be able to come because this was outrageous and that I wish her well on her special day. She contacted my aunt and my aunt called me cheap and rude. My parents offered to pay for my entry, but I refused.”

Other Reddit users chimed in, agreeing with the original poster of the story. Most were in agreement that it was unnecessary for someone to charge a ‘fee’ to get into a wedding. One person comments, “I get people don’t have a lot of money to throw a big fancy wedding, but why can’t they stay within their budget and not expect their guests to pay for their big day?”

Many people online disagree with the bride

Another user points out that “she probably would have gotten $100+ per guest just through gifts and ‘recouped their losses’ if she hadn’t said anything. Now she’s going to lose guests and a lot of those that do come may consider the $50 entry fee their ‘gift’ and (rightfully so) not get her anything extra.”

Lastly, one user points out that this is an upcoming trend amongst couples. “The entitlement of bridal couples is appalling. None of my family would show up – and I wouldn’t blame them.”
