A furious bride has gone on a lengthy Facebook rant after her guests refused to fork over $1500 (AU$1570) to attend the ceremony.
Her jaw-dropping story went viral after it was shared on Reddit.
The bride - known only as Susan - called out her 'snake' friends and family for refusing to cough up the dosh for her dream wedding.
She then went on to explain how initially her husband-to-be's family and her maid-of-honour offered to pay to help out before they changed their mind.
"My maid of honour (who shall not be named) pledged $5,000 along with her planning services. We tearfully thanked and accepted," she said
"My ex's family offered to contribute $3,000. So our request for $1500 for all other guests was not f*cking out of the ordinary.
"Like, we made it CLEAR. If you couldn't contribute, you weren't invited to our exclusive wedding. It's a once in a lifetime party."
After the guests began pulling out, Susan's fiance suggested they get hitched in Vegas.
"My ex came into the room and offered to get a vegas wedding done. I laughed in his face, but he was dead serious. He wanted those cheap, raggedy, filthy, wh*re-like Vegas weddings. I mean WHAT the f*ck??," she fumed.
But things went from bad to worse as her maid-of-honour and bridal party pulled out of the wedding, resulting in her cancelling the event entirely.
"Anyway. I am exhausted. I am bone tired. My heart is not the same. Its stone cold. Fragmented. Empty. I need to get away from this awful society. How hard would it to have been to fucking donate, friends? Do I matter to you? Just f*cking give me money for my wedding," she said.
