There’s a reason I only go to weddings of super close friends and family.  It’s because weddings are expensive!  In addition to the cost of the outfit and the travel and sometimes lodging, the gifts will empty your wallet too.

Apparently "Tanya" didn’t get the memo to gracefully back out of this wedding because she attended and apparently bridezilla wasn’t so happy with the gift she gave because she emailed this, bad grammar and all:

"Hi Tanya, how are you? I just want to know is there any reason or dissatisfaction of Mike's and I wedding that both you and Phil gave $50 each? In terms of the amount we got from you both was very unexpected as a result we were very much short on paying off the reception because just for the cocktail + reception alone the plate per person is $200 (as per a normal wedding range with open bar is about) and Mike and I both have already paid for everything else including decor, photography, attire etc and didn't expect we had to cover that huge amount for reception as well. As I know you both live together and work, so I did not see any reason for that amount, when it comes to your wedding hopefully you'll know what I mean. I hope for the best as from what we receive is what we will give back. Anyways, good luck on everything."

Yikes!  I wasn’t aware that inviting someone to a wedding was all about the gifts- silly me, I thought it was about having those you love surround you on your special day to witness a life event.
