It asks attendees to circle the amount of money they intend to gift them from a list of options, and these correlate with the quality of food they will receive at the reception - with those offering more money being given better meals.

'Golden gift' will offer them the additional meals of filet mignon and lobster tails, and will cost $501-$1,000.

'Platinum gift' will allow the guest to dine of a 2lb lobster and drink champagne, and it'll be theirs for the cost of $1,001 $2,500.

Many Reddit users were shocked by the post, with one writing: "This seems more like something you would encounter at a charity dinner than at a wedding. It's still tacky and horrific, but it feeds into the ostentatious desire to flex on other donors found at some charity events."
