Most newlyweds are usually grateful for any gift they receive from their guests, big or small – after all, it’s the thought that counts right?

Well not for this rude bride, who, instead of writing a thank you note to a guest, asked her for a more generous donation than her £100 cheque (pretty generous if you ask us) instead.

The guest was understandably outraged, and decided to share her woes on a Mumsnet thread, sparking outrage on her behalf.

Using the highly appropriate username Puzzledandpissedoff, she wrote: “I recently attended an ex-colleague’s wedding where, in response to a request for cash gifts, I sent what I thought was a pretty decent cheque (£100 if it matters, though I can’t help feeling it shouldn’t).

“Last night I received an email which opened with a few comments about how glad they were to see everybody and how generous they’d all been, then said: ‘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’.

“For someone who’s not easily shocked I confess I’m utterly gobsmacked by this. So as not to drip feed I’ll mention that ‘your own position’ probably refers to a recent inheritance I’ve had, which maybe they expected something from (and this is an ex-colleague, remember, not a close friend or relative).”

The post has had over 1,000 replies, with all users siding with the guest, and telling her to cancel the cheque.
