It is no secret that people are shelling out THOUSANDS to pay for their dream weddings, and some couples are even going into debt because of it.
This couple from Scotland are close to having their wedding paid for, but are over $5,000 shy. They decided to turn to go fund me and have asked their close friends and family to contribute INSTEAD of buying gifts they do not need.
“Despite throwing all our wages at the wedding costs, selling our belongings and taking as many extra shifts at work as are available we are still falling short of our final bills.
“As we can’t put off the wedding for another few months — (everything is booked) we are asking in lieu of any wedding gifts if you are able to please contribute anything to our costs for the day that would be amazing."
Local media shared their story, and people were quick to express distaste for the couple's crowd funding ideas...
“There are loads of people out there that are struggling to pay to get married, like myself and my partner! 15 years we have been together and we love each other very much and we would love to get married but we know that we cannot afford it but you don’t see us setting up a GoFundMe page and expect other hard working people out there to pay for our wedding!
So, is it TACKY or is it ok to ask for help to pay for your wedding?
