An Australian bride is facing the wrath of the internet after slamming a low-cost wedding gift given by a friend, which the bride said was a "slap in the face".
Posting in a wedding-planning Facebook group, the ungrateful Brisbane-based bride shamed the AU$10 Kmart tea towels given by her best friend, after she was invited to an "exclusive" ceremony.
"Has anyone received any wedding gifts in the past that were a slap in the face? How did you deal with it?" the bride wrote, according to a screenshot posted in a wedding-shaming Reddit forum.
"My partner and I had a very exclusive wedding, all-inclusive and the focus was our guests.
"Our best friend, husband and kids knew this and gifted us two Kmart towels, a total value of about $10."
The bride said the cheap gift "hurt a lot".
"We don't know how to deal with it."
The response probably wasn't what she was hoping for, especially after the post was shared widely online.
Someone questioned on the original post if the bride had considered "it's all they can afford?"
"Be thankful they wanted to be there to celebrate your special day and focus on the quality in their personalities than the material items they may or may not have given you."
Commenters on Reddit were even more brutal.
"Are you actually serious? It's not about what you get out of it," wrote one person.
"I live in Brisbane as well and at this stage, I'll just be happy if my wedding can go ahead in August 2021," pointed out another.
"Those people who only care about getting gifts really frustrate the hell out of me."
"Kmart towels are an awesome gift, who cares how much they cost. What a shallow person," wrote another.
It's not the first time an ungrateful bride has been slammed online. Earlier this year, one US bride shocked the internet after revealing she was considering uninviting her own sister to her wedding because she couldn't afford a gift.
