Bride shamed for $165G wedding paid for by parents: ‘I lost my job a month after getting engaged’

A bride is getting dragged for having an elaborate wedding that set her back a whopping $165,000. Though the outrage didn’t stem from the bride’s expensive tastes — it was from who was footing the bill.

Emily, 29, from Phoenix, Ariz., shared details of her wedding on Refinery29’s article “10 Women Share Who Paid For What at Their Wedding.”

Emily, who did not give a last name, shared that her wedding cost $165k — including marriage prep, church-related costs, ceremony and reception with fireworks.

Though the expense was massive, those who commented on Emily’s story were outraged by the fact that Emily did not pay for any of it.

BRIDE SLAMS COUSIN FOR REFUSING REQUEST TO BE BRIDESMAID: ‘YOU’RE TOO FAT TO BE A BRIDESMAID ANYWAY’

“My parents paid for basically everything. I paid for a few little ‘extras,’ like my bridesmaids’ gifts, but I lost my job a month after getting engaged, so I didn’t have an income for about half of the time I was wedding planning. I would have liked to contribute more, but it just wasn’t in the cards, and my parents were very generous,” she wrote in Refinery29’s questionnaire.

Emily added that her husband paid for the engagement ring and engagement trip to Canada, as well as his groom expenses, and his parents paid for the rehearsal dinner and gave the couple $5,000 toward the honeymoon.

My husband and I are aggressively paying back his six-figure student debt, so a lavish 200+ person wedding would not have been in the cards.

— Emily

The 29-year-old goes on to explain that her parents’ generosity was just “understood.”

“It was just always understood that my parents would be paying, but I still often felt guilty about how much everything cost. But my parents, my husband, and I all agreed very early on that we wanted a big, fun wedding, and that’s just expensive,” she wrote.

“Since I wasn’t working, I would have had to forgo a lot of that stuff in the moment, and they made it possible for me to just enjoy it and not worry about the cost,” she continued, adding that she is “incredibly grateful” to her parents.

Emily went on to explain the couple would have had a wedding that looked “a lot different” if her parents didn’t pitch in.

“My husband and I are aggressively paying back his six-figure student debt, so a lavish 200+ person wedding would not have been in the cards,” she wrote.

Though Emily claimed she doesn’t think anyone “should go into debt” for a wedding, she is happy she was able to have the wedding of her dreams.

“It’s the marriage that is important, not the wedding. (I know, I know, easy for me to say, I got both.)” Emily read.

Those on Refinery29’s Facebook page were quick to respond, shaming the bride’s budget.

“That’s just immature and irresponsible. Wow,” one person wrote.

“You can have an amazing wedding day for less than $165k and it is definitely not a parent’s job to pay for a wedding,” another person commented.

“My parents paid for my wedding. About $30k 20 years ago. They saved my whole life to do this for me. It was such a blessing! I will do the same for my daughter. $165k however is over the top. And I would never ask for that, and I’m raising my daughter to now be outlandish too!” one person shared.

“’My husband and I are aggressively paying back his six-figure student debt, so a lavish 200+ person wedding would not have been in the cards… …If you can’t afford a big party, don’t have one.’ Girl. YOU couldn’t afford it, your parents could,” another person wrote, referencing the bride’s husband’s debt.

“Geez, you could buy a house (or at least an awesome down payment) for that!” one shared.

“That’s a waste of money, your parents could use that money for retirement. Spoiled much,” another wrote.

Not everyone was against the bride, though.

“Why shame someone else on what they spent on their wedding? If her parents were happy to pay for it, that’s their business,” a commenter wrote.

“I’m tryna have coins like this. I’d love to be able to really afford my son’s wedding. Or honeymoon. It’s goals for me,” one commented.

“This a good way to distribute wealth. ~ If the parents of the bride can afford it, more power to them. this wedding kept a number of people employed.  It is a whole lot better than handing it out,” another in favor of the bride wrote.

‘Europe’s biggest sex festival’ hits England, aerial photos show

Hundreds of adventurers are evidently pitching their tents in a showground as this year’s Swingfields festival promises to go off with a bang.

Europe’s biggest swingers’ party has come to the UK again for three days as raunchy revelers get into the swing of things.

Swingfields’ location for this year’s “Aurora” event has now been revealed using handwritten “SF this way” signs around Malvern, Worcestershire, England.

The site is a closely-guarded secret and ticket holders, who pay over $200 for couples, are only told 48 hours before the festival gets underway.

Other snaps detail four poster beds dotted around the site as well as mysterious tents and marquees in the corners of the field. Paddling pools have also been erected around the festival with a line of chairs set up nearby.

The official Swingfields website states: “This three-day event will be working alongside ALL lifestyle groups, including LGBT communities, to ensure we deliver a fun and entertaining event for all.”

Organizers are also offering glamping pods complete with bedding included to allow revelers to “just turn up and relax.”

Residents in the area say they are happy for the sex festival to go ahead as long as the revelers don’t leave the compound.

“I’m not bothered what they do inside the festival as long as they don’t leave it but I suppose, why would they?” Sylvia Hartley, 40, said. “The festival was here last year and no one seemed to have any problems. It’s just people having sex in the open air.”

“There are far more unhealthy pursuits people can do. If I wasn’t in a committed relationship I’d be tempted to go along myself,” Hartley added.

Wedding reception’s ‘luxury’ menu slammed: ‘I thought this was hospital food’

A wedding guest has slammed the “luxury” menu they were served at a friend’s wedding reception.

Taking to a Facebook wedding shaming group, the anonymous guest shared snaps of the unusual wedding meal provided by a 4-star hotel in Leeds.

COUPLE SHAMED FOR ‘PATHETIC’ WEDDING CATERING: ‘THIS MAKES MORE SENSE FOR TODDLERS’

To start, attendees at the nuptials were given a plate of three frozen Yorkshire puddings accompanied with an herb garnish.

When it came to the main course, adults dined on a lackluster chicken dish including an unusual side of zucchini stuffed with green beans.

Meanwhile, children were fed half a pizza topped with tinned tuna, alongside french fries and baked beans.

Captioning her snaps the woman wrote: “I don’t know if the chef of this 4 star ‘luxury’ hotel was sick that day, or on holiday – but something must have been going on.

“I really appreciate the little herb on the side of the frozen Yorkshire puddings, really pushing it out there.”

And it seems that fellow group members were equally unimpressed, with the post receiving hundreds of comments from baffled people.

One wrote: “I would be 100 percent in the kitchen, throwing abuse at the entire kitchen staff if that was what was served at my wedding.”

“I had better food in school dinners,” said another with a third adding, “I thought this was hospital food.”

One particularly horrified member added: “Is that canned tuna on pizza??! WTAF”

“The green onions inside the cucumber. Wtf” wrote another.

Georgia police officer pulls over girlfriend to propose

Though the flashing sirens of a police car could make any driver nervous, one Georgia woman’s unexpected traffic stop had a happy ending: a marriage proposal.

On June 5, Alexis McCart was driving with a friend in Lawrenceville when a police officer for the city inexplicably pulled them over, Fox 5 reports.

“I was so nervous; I didn’t know what was going on,” McCart told Gwinnett Daily Post. “Then [the officer] got us out of the car, and I was like, ‘Why is he doing this? What is going on?’”

Little did McCart realize, but her pal and the Lawrenceville Police Department (LPD) were in on a plan to help her boyfriend, Officer John Heart of the DeKalb County Police Department, pop the question.

LPD Officer Michael Peterson told the women that authorities were looking for suspects who had been at Walmart and instructed them to get out of the car, the Post reports. The strange orders were part of Heart’s plan, as people don’t normally have to exit their vehicle after getting pulled over.

“I said to myself, ‘She’d be really mad at first, but hopefully it’ll work out in the end,'” Heart recalled to Fox 5. “It was one of the most nerve-wracking things I’ve done.”

Moments later, McCart was shocked to see her beau – down on one knee.

“I turned around and there he was, and I just started bawling,” she said. “I was in such shock — you can tell by the picture. I literally had no clue.”

McCart said yes – and the happy couple couldn’t be more thrilled to tie the knot.

The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office has since congratulated the pair on Facebook, where the photos of the pre-planned traffic stop and the story of “how he asked” have since gone viral with over 16,000 likes and 3,000 shares.

With plans for a fall wedding, the bride-to-be says that they’re considering an October 4 celebration in a playful nod to police code.

Reps for the sheriff’s office joked that the move would be in “true cop fashion.”

Would you wear a bikini to a convenience store?

Sofia Richie doesn’t mind. While running errands in Los Angeles this week, the 20-year-old took the opportunity to pause and snap some photos of herself in a bikini.

In the first shot, Richie is leaning in the doorway of the establishment in a pink tye-dye bikini with her hair back in a bun. The model’s taut tummy is on full display and she accessorized with a blue scrunchy on her wrist and gold hoop earrings.

“What’s the password…” she captioned the pic on social media.

In Richie’s second shot, she flaunts her incredible bikini body in another teeny-tiny tye-dye bikini and teases a future swimwear design collaboration with friend and Frankies Bikini creator Francesca Aiello.

“FIFI & FRANKFURT@frankiesbikinis collab coming soon,” she wrote.

Aiello, 24, founded the swimwear company when she was just 18-years-old and counts the likes of Gigi Hadid, Rihanna, and Kylie Jenner as fans who have been snapped in her designs.

Richie has been modeling for years and has worked with brands including Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, and Chanel. She’s also walked the runway for designers Dolce & Gabbana, Jeremy Scott, and Kanye West.

Now, the daughter of Lionel Richie is taking her talents and moving into another director: designing her own collection. Richie is starting a new fashion brand that will reportedly debut in August.

“I finally feel like I’m at the point in my life where I have so many creative ideas that I want to share and I’m bottled up,” she told WWD.

“Over the years, buying so many clothes and seeing what I liked and didn’t like and being in the modeling industry, I was around so many designers and I always take notes and tips from them. It came easily and I knew all the little things I wanted and didn’t want,” Richie added.

Fans can expect very comfortable pieces. She previously told Grazia that her personal style is all about being simple and easy.

“Honestly, I can’t really pin exactly what I am because I wake up every morning and I decide that I want to be girly or I want to be a tomboy, or I don’t know like I’m all over the place. But for the most part, I’m comfortable. I think that’s an important key factor to me,” Richie explained.

Marathon runner surprises girlfriend with proposal at finish line

This is the heartwarming moment a marathon runner proposes to his girlfriend at the end of the race – wearing a t-shirt reading ‘Will you marry me?’

Romantic Jonny Black, 43, popped the question to partner Kathryn Keir, 41, after finishing the Edinburgh Marathon in Scotland.

The keen runner had a personalized top made which read: “Kathryn, will you marry me?” on the front and “Popping the question if and when I reach the finish” on the back.

Shocked Kathryn was at the finish line cheering on boyfriend Jonny, who ran the race in four hours and 27 minutes.

And she managed to capture the whole proposal on her on phone, as she was videoing Jonny, from Dundee, Scotland, as he finished the race last weekend.

In the adorable video, Kathryn shouted Jonny’s name before he turned around and walked towards her, ring in hand, and got down on one knee.

Jonny, a software engineer, said: “We met two years ago.

“I’d got invited by her to a post-Edinburgh Marathon prosecco party in Linlithgow so I thought it was an appropriate occasion to mark it.

“Kathryn dropped me off at the start then I changed into the top at the start line.

“A mile before the end I prepared myself for what was to come.

“She had no idea at all.”

Jonny bought the stunning emerald engagement ring from one of Kathryn’s favorite jewelers in Linlithgow, West Lothian.

Exhausted from the 26.2 mile run, Jonny said he slowed down near the end to help compose himself for the big moment and was “relieved” when Kathryn said yes.

Jonny said: “I was just so lucky when it came to the finish, then she shouted my name.

“I was relieved she was there and it was just an amazing moment.

Jonny, a software engineer, kept the proposal quiet by secretly having a top made with the words “Kathryn, will you marry me?” on the front and “Popping the question if and when I reach the finish” on the back. (SWNS)

“I slowed down a bit and wanted to be fit enough at the end to get down on one knee and get back up again.

“I booked a hotel in Edinburgh and we had a nice meal – it was really good.

“It was an amazing day, absolutely perfect.

“I couldn’t have planned it any better.”

Jonny, who was running his sixth marathon, added: “It’s my slowest marathon yet but I don’t mind at all.

“I contacted Kathryn’s mom on Friday, two days before the marathon, and asked her.

“She was really emotional and delighted.

“The reaction from everybody’s been great.”

Groom mad at sister for scheduling gender reveal party on wedding day: ‘Nobody even apologized’

An anonymous newlywed was left fuming after a gender reveal party was allegedly scheduled on the same day as the wedding.

The groom posted on the Reddit forum, “Am I the A–hole,” asking others if he was in the wrong for being angry at his sister’s actions.

BRIDE’S VOW RENEWAL DRESS SLAMMED: ‘IS THE THEME PIRATE HOOKER?’

“I don’t live near any family except my grandparents who are in the next town over and all my family lives spread out across the country. So when I was getting Married last week we had the wedding at my house and invited every one here to celebrate with us on our wedding day,” he wrote on Reddit.

“The plan was wedding at 3. Reception at 4 and after party at 7 or 8pm. Everyone was invited to all 3 parts well ahead of time. The after Party was set up so that we could actually spend real time with our friends and family instead of all the stiff formalities of the reception,” the post continued.

However, once the party began, the groom claimed “half the wedding left including my entire family.”

“Not a single member of my family stayed.”

Though the family members weren’t just calling it a night early – the unidentified man discovered later they had all gone to his grandparents’ house nearby for a gender reveal party his sister had planned and not told him about.

“Nobody bothered to ask if I wanted to go. Nobody showed up to my party. Nobody even apologized for not coming. I had wanted to spend quality time with my family but instead they all just left. They had all flown in just for the weekend so I didn’t get to talk to them before the wedding as it was all hectic from wedding prep. Then they flew out the next day,” he wrote.

The groom was shocked by his sister’s behavior and wrote he was “so mad” that he doesn’t know how to talk to them at the moment — especially on a day that “should have been my day,” he wrote.

The poster wrote in a follow-up comment that he specifically requested to have a wedding to bring his family, including his divorced parents, together.

“My beautiful bride wanted to elope but said we could do the wedding if I wanted to. My family all lives spread out across the county. The main reason why I wanted to have a real wedding was so that for the first time in my 30 year life I could have all my family in one place at one time.”

Those on the Reddit forum came to the groom’s defense, claiming he was in the right for being angry at the timing of his sister’s gender reveal.

“[Not the a–h—]. Though, it kind of sounds like your family doesn’t like you very much,” one person wrote.

“From the sound of things, [Original Poster]’s family was all in town together for a short time, and they wanted to go celebrate with the sister badly enough that they were willing to offend OP in order to do so. I don’t know what that says about OP’s relationship with these folks to begin with, but OP is totally NTA for being upset about it,” another commented.

“I’d be upset too!” one person offered.

Some in the comments ask the poster to confront his sister and then update the story — though the groom did not confirm whether he would or not.
