A bride has been slammed as “selfish” after she said that her grandfather’s $4,000 wedding dress budget simply wasn’t enough for her dream wedding.
Spoilt? We think so…The attention is always fixated on one thing… and that’s the wedding dress.And many will go to some extreme lengths to get their own way!
And one woman has been royally trolled after taking to Reddit (of all places!) for some urgent bridal advice.Yep, you heard that right… 2 wedding dresses!
She explained, “My grandpa is paying for the entire wedding basically. He’s taking the biggest ‘hits’ you could say, but he’s in a position where he feels comfortable spending the amount of money he is and I’m not going to be the one to tell him not to.”
“That being said, I originally told him my wedding dress budget would be $4,000 for 2 dresses. Then I fell in love with my ceremony dress, which was $3,370 and he told me that was fine and I could get them both. Then he bought it for me (YAY) and it was $3,650 after tax.”
You’ve gotten your own way… what’s the problem, then?
“The dress I want for my reception is $2,210 after tax. This brings my total [budget] to $5,860. I know my grandpa would still do this for me, but I feel extremely slimy for it? I don’t want to take advantage of my grandpa and I know he thinks it’s fine, but that’s SO much money. What do you guys think? Do you think I should look for something similar or just do it and get the one I’ve been obsessed with for 6 months?”
