Bride slammed for crowdfunding for more cash so she can buy second wedding dress
A bride-to-be has been slammed for setting up a Go Fund Me page asking strangers for donations to fund her 'fairytale' wedding.
The unnamed woman claimed that despite her father working 'overtime and side jobs' to give her the dream wedding she wants, she needs more help.
The extra money would go on a second dress to wear to the reception, hair and make-up and bridesmaids dresses.
In a post shared on a wedding shaming group, she wrote: "We would like to go on a honeymoon if we can raise enough money.
"Please consider investing your donation in a couple that will never give up on each other. To a fairytale."
Another bride-to-be, from Ireland, spotted the request and shared it on the shaming group on Facebook with two 'see no evil emojis'.
The post attracted a stream of commenters slamming the couple for expecting others to pay for their big day.
Many people questioned why the bride-to-be was pressuring her father to work harder to pay for her wedding.
Others noted the couple are already legally married and do not need to spend so much on a 'dream' wedding.
One commenter wrote: "They've already married at the courthouse. This wedding is JUST FOR SHOW.
"Seriously, she's begging for $ to throw herself a dress-up party. People have no shame."
Another added: "I find this disgusting, her dad working overtime to pay for her wedding.
"I would never expect or ask or accept money from my parents for my wedding. She and her husband to be should be ashamed of themselves."
Someone else pointed out if "if you can't afford a wedding yourself, don't have one. People like this are pathetic."
While others said it was inappropriate for her to crowdfund for a wedding on Go Fund Me when others are trying to raise money for life threatening illnesses.
One user said: "I hate this ****. People who actually need a go fund me for actual medical or funeral expenses are getting overshadowed by this ******** because people can't be bothered to save money properly."
