Having to tell your nearest and dearest that your wedding is cancelled is an incredibly painful task.
Who wouldn't feel for the person who has to go through that?
Unless that person is Susan from Canada, whose email to her friends and family has left people open-mouthed with shock.
The reason Susan has had to cancel her wedding is because her guests refused to pay £900 towards it EACH.
In a Facebook post shared to Mumsnet , details of Susan's demands emerge, and, to put it mildly, it's all a bit too much.
"Dear friends," it begins, "it comes with great sadness that I am announcing the cancellation of the wedding. I apologise for cancelling only four days beforehand.
"Unfortunately, [fiance] and I have broken up due to some recent and irreparable problems. We have decided to end our relationship and not go forth with any future proceedings."
The issue was a cashflow problem, with guests refusing to stump up hundreds of pounds to bankroll her "exclusive" day.
She continues: "I specifically, I mean specifically asked for cash gifts. How could we have our wedding that we dreamed of without proper funding?
"We'd sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for around $1,500
"My maid of honour pledged $5,000 along with her planning services. We tearfully thanked and accepted. My ex's family offered to contribute $3,000."
Frankly, we're amazed anybody person coughed up, nevermind eight.
"So our request for $1,500 for all other guests was not f*****g out of the ordinary. Like, we made it clear. If you couldn't contribute, you weren't invited to our exclusive wedding. It's once and a life time party [sic].
"After sending out the invitations, only eight guests RSVP'd with their check of $1,500.
"We were f*****g livid."
When her fiance suggested a cheap and cheerful wedding in Vegas, she apparently "laughed in his face".
To add to her woes, her maid of honour then retracted her offer as did her in-laws.
