A reddit user by the name of Laika_cat posted a redacted screencap of a truly ridiculous email.
In the email, which was allegedly written by a wedding coordinator, guests are givena list of demands.
A few of them are totally normal -- don't wear white, please let us know if you're bringing a plus one. That's all fine and not what has everyone so bewildered.
No, the bride is demanding that anyone invited bring a gift of sufficient value if they want to be admitted.
And she's also laying down the law about what guests can do, from social media activity to what they drink to how they can do their hair and makeup.
Technically, the email is purportedly from the wedding coordinator, but a number of clues make people believe that the bride wrote it herself.
Take a look at what true absurdity looks like and ask yourself if you would even bother attending.
It starts off normally enough
Like we said, it is widely doubted that the wedding coordinator came up with this list -- or even wrote it.
This question is reasonable
This matters for seating layouts and for food preparation. But this question comes before the list.
Oh boy, here we go
Asking people to show up early is fine. And avoiding white or anything close is considered polite.
This is where it gets controlling
Now this person is telling people how to wear their own hair and how to do their makeup? It sounds like the bride is terrified of being outshone.
She doesn't just want to control your looks, but your behavior
That ... is not how you spell ceremony. And while including a tag for an event is standard, the demand that people not check in on social media is weird.
This is our favorite one
What does this mean? Do not speak to the bride? This is like a list of demands for a major prima donna actress ... except she's making them of people who are presumably family and friends. Who DOESN'T want to talk to their friends?
