A bride-to-be’s Facebook post is going viral for all the wrong reasons.
A Mumsnet user took to the online forum to ask users if they thought a friend’s post was rude and unreasonable.
In the post, the unnamed bride wants people to stop asking her questions about her big day, going so far as to tell her friends to “take your ‘helpful advice’ and stick it up your arse”.
“The amount of questions about our wedding is getting ridiculous,” she starts the post, which was originally on Facebook.
The post suggests people who aren’t invited to the wedding are asking too many questions. It then continues to list a number of “inappropriate” questions from her friends and family.
“To put the answer out there before anyone else asks, I am going to wear my glasses and, you know what, I don’t need to tell you why,” she writes.
“Also to further answer questions – yes, I am changing my name, yes – I have picked my bridesmaids (they know who they are), yes – [blanked name] did pick the ring himself and yes – it was a complete surprise.
“If you have asked one of these questions and aren’t a member of our family or a close friend, you can go take a hike.
“Also, [blanked name] and I are the last people who need advice on how to plan and deliver an event so kindly take your ‘helpful advice’ and stick it up your arse!”
The woman who shared the post to Mumsnet asked fellow users if she was right to feel put off by the post.
“There’s really no excuse for that sort of outburst. People ask polite questions about weddings, pregnancy and children etc to be nice,” a person commented.
“God. That’s pretty cringy. Does she actually think people care that desperately about her wedding,” one user replied.
“Very rude. I would be politely declining an invitation to the wedding of someone who posted that. Reality is most people don’t care about her wedding but are being polite and making small (probably boring for them) talk with her,” added another.
We’re betting this bride’s guest list just got shorter.
