A bride whinged about people turning down her wedding invite – even though she’s trying to host a huge party during the pandemic.
On Facebook, she wrote: “I need a serious pep booster talk.
“Our guest invite was 318 people long. We got married in June with a small private ceremony and are having the big gathering on October 24.
“I am at ALMOST 50% declined rate for RSVPs.
“I know I can only be made at myself for hosting a wedding party during a pandemic but really?! 50%?!?
“And I can’t even get some people to reply to me, even though they’re reading my messages.”
The bride added: “Most of my list is local and we expected at least 250 to attend. We’ve had 158 say they are coming.
“I’m just in utter shock at all of this. And I’m getting a little depressed about it.
“It’s definitely showing in my attitude and mood about life, which is typically NOT who I’m remotely close to being. I just feel lost and defeated.”
Despite the woman’s sadness about her big day, people weren’t very sympathetic about her situation.
Many branded her “entitled” for trying to host an event in the midst of a global pandemic.
On Reddit, one responder remarked: “I can’t believe 158 people are willing to go to this coronafest, never mind 318!”
Another sarcastically said: “Huh people aren't replying? That's so weird!
“It's almost like you are putting your friends and family in a really awkward position, risking not only their lives but everyone that they know just so you can wear a pretty dress and eat a slice of cake.”
A third wrote: “Imagine being so goddamn entitled you're mad that people don't want to go to your wedding during a f***ing pandemic.”
And a fourth added: “I have zero sympathy for these kind of people.”
Others suggested that the woman holds a party at a later date instead.
A Redditor asked: “Why do people insist on having pandemic weddings?
“It’s dangerous, you can’t do as many things and half the people don’t go.
“I know it sucks but she even said herself that they already got married. Wait until next year and have the bash of your dreams!”
And another agreed: “The wedding is just a party. Celebrate next year or on your first anniversary if you REALLY need to get married during corona.
“The selfishness and the ego is astounding to be honest.”
