Sister demands $100k as a wedding gift, says $20k is not enough: 'She's demanding I cover the full $100k cost [of the wedding]'

A gift is given willingly—usually without having an expectation placed upon it. Sure, when you're a kid, you might have gotten away with giving Mom and Dad some direction as to what to get you so that you didn't end up with something that wasn't worth anyone's money or time. For instance, if you asked your parents for just a generic “Gameboy game,” you'd wind up with some blockbuster movie cash grab that was almost unplayable and made by some third-party developer instead of the Pokemon game yo…

Bridezilla insists bridesmaid make numerous changes to her appearance so she wouldn't 'ruin her photos': 'Texts and group chats... [were] telling me I was being stubborn'

What's the most drastic thing you'd change to appease your bride-to-be friend ? Would you dye or cut your hair? How about covering up your favorite tattoos? Hopefully, your friends wouldn't ask you to change any of these things about yourself, since it's a bit impolite. It implies that the way you dress or act isn't appropriate for a wedding, as u/sinkydoodles found out when their friend tried to do just that. Why bridezillas always think that people will steal their thunder is a mystery to me.…

By the time the festivities started, which wer…

20 wedding mishaps that led to divorce: 'The bride [...] showed up in a bright pink track suit'

Of course, we want our friends' weddings to be joyful and stress-free, but the reality of the matter is there's always something unexpected.

However, every so often, some revelatory piece of information is uncovered that becomes a point of no return for the couple. Luckily, I have yet to witness this kind of madness occur at a friend's wedding. However, last year, I had the great fortune…

Stylist confronts bride's mother after overhearing her gossiping in Spanish: 'I heard and understood the entire hour of her ripping me to shreds'

'If someone sent this to me, I would simply not go': Internet weighs in on couple's 15 strict rules for their wedding

This couple wanted to send out 15 rules for their wedding. It's not a bad idea in theory, but the tone of the list, and some of the actual rules themselves, got people on the r/weddingshaming subreddit talking. There are a lot of good rules for your wedding, and most don't need to be spelled out for guests. For example, there's one rule which warns guests not to bring outside drinks… who does that? Rule #2 instructs guests not to “get in the photographer's way.” Who hurt this couple enough that…

25 tell-tale signs that a couple is on the verge of breaking up: 'Constantly plastering their relationship all over social media'

When you know, you know . This is, of course, what everyone says when they find the partner with whom they may want to share the rest of their lives.

Sure, there are the obvious signs: fighting, infidelity, etc, but when it comes to the subtle red flags, that's when side remarks, body language, and social media posting bec…

'It is my turn to be selfish': Top 15 wedding debacles featuring bridezillas, entitled couples, and needy family members

Not every wedding is a dream come true. In fact, rarely can events that simultaneously cause so much stress and anxiety result in a blissful moment. At the end of the day, much of the reasoning behind this is our own fault. Culturally, we put way too much emphasis on the need to have the perfect time at your wedding while making both parties equally happy. It's an impossible task, so why do we keep doing this to ourselves? These folks understand all too well that weddings are just as likely to…

Entitled mother-in-law brings uninvited guests to bride's wedding, sabotages photographs: 'Husband taking [his] crazy family's side is a huge red flag':

It's remarkable how common it is for the parents of the bride and groom to think the entire wedding is about them. Of course, if they contributed to the event financially or emotionally, of course, they deserve a voice. However, even parents who pay for an entire wedding should understand that they are not going to be the center of attention the entire time. This entitled mother-in-law didn't even contribute a dime, and yet she still felt the need to stir the pot and cause a scene. First, she r…

'Did no one tell you this itinerary was way too much?': Bride-to-be dismayed over bachelorette party of "25 of my closest girlfriends" gone wrong

Most of us can count our closest friends on one hand… meanwhile, this extroverted bride has 25 close friends ! If you have 25 friends or more, that's probably normal. If you're the extroverted type who befriends everyone you come across, you might have dozens of people you call your friends.
