‘Tacky’ wedding RSVP slammed for offering guests better food if they gift money

News

A bridezilla recently hit the headlines after a copy of a text she sent a wedding guest was shared online.

In the message she berated the guest for her choice of wedding gift – a hamper full of sweet treats.

Instead of food, the bride had hoped to receive money and advised her friend to give an “envelope” next time.

Well, if you thought that was bad, you might want to prepare yourself for this.

An RSVP card, thought to be for a wedding, has come under fire online, with people branding the requests listed on there as being “tacky”.

A photo of the RSVP was shared on Reddit’s Wedding Shaming community where people did not hold back their thoughts.

The RSVP asks guests to circle the amount of money they intend to give as a gift.

The amount of money they give will equate to the quality of food they are served. Those who provide more money, will be given a better meal.

The card reads: “So that we may prepare your preferred dinner, please circle your gift level and indicate a meal choice for each person in your party.”

It then goes on to break down four gift levels – loving gift, silver gift, golden gift, platinum gift.

The first level, loving gift, gets a guest a dinner of roast chicken or swordfish – but they have to pay up to $250 for it.

The silver gift will set them back $251 to $500 and for this they get either of the above as options but can also choose from sliced steak and poached salmon.

At the golden level which costs $501 to $1000 guests have the option of any of the meals, as well as filet mignon and lobster tails.

But if they’re feeling really fancy they could always gift $1001 to $2500 and dine on 2lb lobster while drinking from a souvenir champagne goblet.

Many Reddit users were appalled by the RSVP card but some weren’t convinced it was for a wedding, instead suggesting it might be for a charity fundraising event.

One person said: “This seems more like something you would encounter at a charity dinner than at a wedding. It’s still tacky and horrific, but it feeds into the ostentatious desire to flex on other donors found at some charity events.”

Another commented: “I really hope this is for a fundraiser because if it’s for a wedding, holee s**t.”

A third wrote: “Everybody should just say their gift was over $1k, eat the 2lb of lobster, and laugh thinking about the couple opening their $40 toaster later.”

Someone else pointed out: “No need to lie or cheat… I will go for the 1 dollar roasted chicken. Even beats Walmart with 3 dollars!”
