The bride has been branded 'rude' for hitting out at the guest for her choice of present.
A bride has slammed one of her wedding guests after she received a hamper of sweets and chocolate - rather than money - as a present.
The guest in question decided to get creative with her gift, filling the basked with tasty items like sweets, a jar of marshmallow fluff, biscuits and crisps.
The sweet gift was accompanied by a card that read "Life is delicious — enjoy."
Rather than be thrilled with the thoughtful present, however, the bride - named Laura messaged the gifter to complain.
The gift was sent by a woman called Cathy, who shared her story on Reddit in 2013.
According to The Hamilton Spectator, Laura's message said: "I want to thank you for coming to the wedding Friday.
"I'm not sure if it's the first wedding you have been to, but for your next wedding… people give envelopes. I lost out on $200 covering you and your date's plate... and got fluffy whip and sour patch kids in return.
"Just a heads-up for the future."
At the time, Kathy insisted she didn't think there was anything wrong with the gift - and many on Reddit agreed.
One person wrote: "What planet is this horrible bride living on?? If you don’t like or want the gift, then re-gift the damn thing and move on with your life, you rude hag. You do not write a snarky email to the guest informing them that they should have been aware that they were costing the bride x amount of money and their gift didn’t measure up."
Another added: "What an absolutely heinous person."
