Weddings can be pretty expensive, we all know that…
What with the price of the venue, the dress, the catering, photography and everything else, the happy couple is likely to be set back quite a sum.
So, it’s not uncommon for wedding guests to gift the newlyweds with money to help them out.
But a US-based bride-to-be has been slammed for her “tacky” attempt at getting people to pay for the occasion.
In multicoloured writing, the anonymous woman revealed that she was heading to Austin, Texas, for her bachelorette party, for the entire weekend.
She also wrote her PayPal number on her car windows in the hopes that strangers would send her money towards it.
After being shared on Reddit ‘s ‘wedding shaming’ page, people branded the bride’s actions “trashy” and “tacky.”
“If you think it’s tacky for people to post on Facebook asking for donations for their wedding, you can’t think this is cute or funny. It’s the exact same thing,” one person wrote.
“This is super tacky,” said a second.
Whilst a third concerned user said: “Surely this is an unsafe thing to do?”
“But maybe I’m just a very private and paranoid person.”
But others didn’t see what the problem was, as one person said: “I don’t think that’s really trashy. If I saw that, I might want to send a little money to the expecting bride for a drink on me.”
Another reader added: “If a bride made a Facebook status like ‘Heading out for my bachelorette party with my girls!!!
“Here’s my Cashapp if you wanna buy the bride a drink,’ That would be harmless. I don’t think I’d do it, but I see it just as someone having a good time. That’s what this car is doing.”
