A war of words has erupted between two lesbian brides and two guests over their wedding gift.
Kathy Mason and her boyfriend, from Ontario, decided to give their friends a basket filled with a mix of ‘fun’ treats including pasta, olive oil, croutons, biscuits, Marshmallow Fluff and Sour Patch Kids.
They attached a carefully worded which read: ‘Enjoy . . . Life is delicious.’
Well the newlyweds did not “enjoy” the gift. In fact they were so disapproving they sent their guests a text message the next day asking for a receipt to take the items back for cash.
Bride: “Heyyy I just wanna say thanks for the gift but unfortunately I can’t eat any of it lol I’m gluten intolerant. Do u maybe have a receipt”
Guest: “Really!? We had a great time. Thank you again for allowing us to be a part of the celebration.”
Kathy says after not responding she got this text…
Bride: “Hey (writer) it’s (Bride 1’s) wife Laura. I want to thank you for coming to the wedding Friday. I’m not sure if it’s the first wedding you have been to, but for your next wedding… People give envelopes. I lost out on $200 covering you and your dates plate… And got fluffy whip and sour patch kids in return. Just a heads up for the future :) ”
Completely insulted Kathy decided to reveal the back-and-forth war of texts with The Hamilton Spectator. Here are some more of what the ungrateful brides texted.
Bride: “Weddings are to make money for your future.. Not to pay for peoples meals….You ate steak, chicken, booze, and a beautiful venue. To be exact the plates were $97 a person… But thanks again for the $30 gift basket my wife can’t even eat. If anything you should be embarrassed for being so cheap and embarrassing yourself walking in with a gift basket probably re gifted cheap a**.”
The exchange prompted a debate regarding wedding etiquette. Should they have said something?
Is this the wedding gift I would want? No! Would I say anything, no! Heck, I’d even still send a thank you. People honestly have no social graces anymore. It’s the thought that counts and weddings aren’t about the material things, they’re about celebrating a couple’s love and commitment to one another. That’s priceless. What’s worse than a Bridezilla? Two!
