A bride sparked major outrage after telling wedding guests she wouldn’t be happy if they missed her special day because of coronavirus .
In the original Facebook message, which was later shared on Reddit , the anonymous bride-to-be explained that she is due to tie the knot in a few weeks after spending a fortune on the day.
She said: “I’ve spent thousands of dollars. I’ve been working out, budgeting, dodging family politics land mines, chased rsvps, tried my hand and both electrical and wood work, personalised gifts, answered a million emails, and drank lots of wine in the bathtub.
“So I feel justified to remind my guests that… I don’t care. If you miss my wedding because of coronavirus paranoia. You are dead to me.”
It was no surprise that many Reddit users were quick to slam the bride for her very selfish remark.

One said: “I would be mad too, but damn think about other people than yourself woman.”
Another added: “Cool, so any wedding guests that have anything resembling an autoimmune or chronic illness will risk their lives by attending her wedding. I'm sure that's worth the thousands of dollars she spent on her own entitlement.”
A third commented: “My cousin’s wedding was supposed to be next weekend, you know what they did? Reschedule it! Because they’re smart.”

While a fourth wrote: “My grandma is almost 90. I see her often. I think it’s terrible to be selfish in a situation like this. Sorry about your wedding but I wouldn’t risk my family’s health. Deal with it.”
The Reddit user who took screenshots of the post explained that the bride had attempted to “claim satire” after being called out.
One said: “Shout out to my BIL who just cancelled their wedding party at the end of the month due to the virus. Are they disappointed? Obviously. Is it what needs to be done right now? Definitely.”
Meanwhile, another expressed their sympathy for the bride’s situation, adding: “Looks like an obvious joke to me. Wedding planning is stressful even without a pandemic. Let people vent.”
