A bride’s Facebook rant has gone viral after she publicly shamed her friends for not forking out $3,000 to attend her wedding.

The woman’s message was posted to Reddit by one of her Facebook friends, alongside the caption: “Bridezilla is upset her friends wouldn’t spend $3k for a destination wedding, follows up with a registry complaint.”

During the rant, the woman slammed her friends for being ‘cheap’ and said she would be better off just eloping than having any of them at her wedding at all.

“At risk of sounding entitled… I have to vent today,” the Facebook post starts.

“When we invited our friends and family to our destination wedding in Thailand, only 9 people RSVPs. Out of 150!!! Ok, I get it, paying $3k to share my special day is too much for some of you, I’d pay for yours, but whatever.

“BUT then, when we changed the wedding to be in Hawaii, so it’s within everyone’s reach, only 7 of you RSVP’d??? It costs less but less of you wanna come?! Is that what you think of [husband] and me? You can’t spare $2k to come share our happiness.

“I’m tempted to just elope and not let any of you be a part of our happiest day. This is it guys you have 3 days to respond to our evites or were deleting you off FB and good luck keeping up with our lives then.

“And don’t get me started on the registry… Only the cheap stuff is gone, I swear I thought we had better friends.”

People on Reddit couldn’t believe the woman’s post, with many saying they would just delete her as a friend if they saw that post on their Facebook page.

Others said they felt ‘sorry for the groom’ and couldn’t understand why she would think 150 people would be able to attend her destination wedding.
