A wedding guest has shared the message she received from a bride the day after her wedding informing her she didn’t give enough of a monetary “contribution”.
In a Twitter thread, Seyi Akiwowo recalled attending a 2015 destination wedding in Romania of her former friend and co-worker, only to return to London and receive the message requesting a bank transfer.
According to Akiwowo, who’d attended the wedding along with a plus one, the bride and groom had gone all out in planning their special day – and had specified before the wedding on the invite that they preferred money over gifts.
At the end of the wedding, Akiwowo said guests were given little white envelopes to put money in. In return, they were given goodie bags.
“Remember I told ya’ll we paid for our own expenses… we ran out of cash,” Akiwowo wrote. “And we were in the village. We didn’t see local ATMs. Most cabs refused to take euros so we literally only had enough local currency to get back to the hotel and to the airport at 4am…”
