- Woman changes RSVP for her sister’s wedding from ‘yes’ to ‘no’ due to demands
- The mom was looking forward to seeing her sibling get married in January
- She had no choice but to invite family after they were told to spend $4,500
A woman has made the difficult decision to change her sister’s wedding RSVP from ‘yes’ to ‘no’ after being put off by the ridiculous demands of the bride-to-be.
Like any wedding, the woman looked forward to seeing her sibling get married in January in an intimate ceremony surrounded by close family and friends.
But she had no choice but to take herself and her family out of the wedding after being asked to spend $840 for four outfits due to a strict dress code, $500 a night for a hotel room, $600 for a wedding gift and $2,500. for the couple’s honeymoon package.
‘I sent a message’ [saying] our RSVP went from a ‘yes’ to a ‘no’. We couldn’t afford all this, and since she demands so much of our money, we’d better not be here,” the woman wrote in a Reddit thread.

The woman said the demands started when the bride picked out the exact outfits she wanted every member of the family to wear on her wedding day.
“My sister has picked out the clothes for every immediate member of her family and her fiancé to buy and has said we will be rejected if we don’t comply,” she said.
“My dress is $350, my husband’s suit is $290, our daughter’s dress is $120, and our son’s would be in $80 suits.”
The mother was clearly shocked at the prices, the mother said, in addition to the outfits, that her sister arranged a $500-a-night hotel room for her family.
“She’s already made an effort to get us those rooms, and we should pay the money. I told her it was a lot, and we couldn’t afford it all,’ she said.
When her parents offered to pay for her family’s hotel room, the bride told the sister to get the exact gift she wanted, which was $600.
“My parents told her it was unreasonable to expect so much from all of us. She said it was reasonable to expect your family to make your special day a good day,” she said.
“My husband and I argued vigorously about ending the wedding completely. We agreed to just ignore the demands and show up anyway.”

But things took a turn for the worse when the bride-to-be demanded that they cover the couple’s honeymoon.
“She announced that my parents, my husband and I were responsible for paying for their honeymoon… Their honeymoon package was $2,500,” she said.
After she changed her RSVP from ‘yes’ to ‘no’ on the invitation, ‘chaos’ ensued.
“This is my sister’s wedding, it’s a family event and while we feel she’s unreasonable and our finances are being pushed very far because of this, it might be the wrong move not to go,” she added.
Many labeled the “bridezilla” a “titled monster” and a “titled greedy brat.”
“Your sister sounds awful. She may be excited, but she’s acting completely ridiculous,” one wrote, while another added: “She chooses to get married, you don’t owe her anything.”
One woman said that while it is “quite understandable to want an insanely elaborate wedding,” the bride and groom “should be willing to pay for everything.”
“Expecting your guests to pay out thousands of dollars is insane,” she said.
Your sister didn’t just give you brief outlines of what to wear, she picked out expensive outfits that you probably won’t even wear anymore, especially your kids.
‘The expectation that you then buy her a present and pay for her honeymoon is also the most bizarre. They have insane rights and will end up with a wedding and no guests and they will lose their family.”
