Newlyweds Complain To Guest That Wedding Gift Wasn’t Good Enough

A wedding guest in Britain was astounded when the happy couple accused her of failing to give them an adequate gift, according to the Guardian.

The unidentified woman, who formerly worked with the bride, said she received an email from the newlyweds informing her that her 100-pound check was insufficient.

The message allegedly stated: “We were surprised that your contribution didn’t seem to match the warmth of your good wishes on our big day. In view of your own position, if you wanted to send any adjustment it would be thankfully received.”

The wedding guest, calling herself Puzzledandpissedoff, turned to a Mumsnet forum for advice about how to respond. She wrote: “Please, anyone, what do I do now? I’ve never come across anything like this before and still can’t quite believe they’ve done it, but since they have, should I reply, ring them, ignore it or what?”

In the three days after the question was posted, more than 1,000 people offered suggestions. Many told the woman to cancel the check.

One person wrote: “I would email back, but BCC any mutual friends in so they are able to see the email for themselves. That is entitled and grabby. It’s a gift, not an obligation; and many people wouldn’t have given so much to an ex-colleague.”

The woman told reporters that the email “gobsmacked” her. She said the phrase “your own position” likely was a reference to money she recently inherited.
