Social media criticizes Bridezilla for a "sticky" wedding menu that offers guests better meals depending on the cash gift, but she claims it was all a JOKE
- A bride's RSVP card for her wedding went viral after offering better meals to her guests depending on the cash gifts
- Participants were asked to select one of four "gift levels" that determine their choice for dinner
- The lowest tier, known as a "loving gift," starts at $ 250, with fried chicken or swordfish as a meal
- The top tier, or "Platinum Gift", is for guests spending up to $ 2,500 to choose any meal on the menu or a £ 2 lobster dinner
- The cards were sent as a "joke" with the couple's invitations, but were eventually shared online after the guests failed to understand it was a prank
A bride-to-be was slammed on social media after offering better meals to her wedding guests depending on the size of their monetary gifts.
A photo of an anonymous couple's wedding RSVP card went viral this week after being posted on Reddit's popular "Wedding Shaming" thread.
Guests were asked to select one of four “gift levels” they would give to the newlyweds to determine their dinner at the reception.
According to the wedding blog Jersey Bride, the cards with the couple's invitations were sent as a "joke" but were eventually shared online after guests failed to understand it was a prank.
Instead, the couple were outraged, with critics calling the invitations "sticky" and "gross".

Users also struggled with the options for vegetarian and kosher diners who have to choose the most expensive animal gift
The fake wedding card showed guests giving a "loving gift" – the lowest tier – of up to $ 250 and choosing between roast chicken or swordfish.
The Silver Gift tier, which ranges from $ 251 to $ 500, offered guests either sliced steak or poached salmon in addition to the lower tier options.
As part of the “Golden Gift” selection, guests had the option of choosing filet mignon or lobster tails, provided they paid $ 501 to $ 1,000.
Finally, the more generous guests, willing to spend between $ 1,001 and $ 2,500 on the “platinum gift”, will receive a £ 2 lobster and a souvenir champagne mug.
The menu attracted further backlash after reviewers noted that dietary restrictions also came with a price.
Vegetarians and kosher guests were told that, according to the menu, their meals were only available at platinum level.
The couple's joke clearly failed after the invitation spread widely on Reddit and Twitter. Many called the tiered menu "offensive" and "rude".
"After this started gossiping (and being posted on FB) the couple who sent this out with their wedding invitations said it was a joke and they were surprised that no one" got "the joke," the blog said.
One person said he would bring $ 25 and his own tuna sandwich instead of participating in the expensive program
In a scathing tweet, one user wrote, "I'm not sure" sticky "treats both the aggressiveness of treating your wedding guests like political campaigners and the pathology of using your marriage as emotional blackmailing of loved ones AND publicly admitting them shame. It's like a sociopathy burrito. & # 39;
Others suggested alternatives for guests to get around the ridiculous tiered gift system.
"Everyone should just say their gift was more than $ 1,000, eat 2 pounds of lobster and laugh at the thought of the couple opening their $ 40 toaster later," joked one user.
Another joked about bringing a $ 25 check and tuna submarine instead of opting to eat at the front desk.
& # 39; Register for the platinum level. Get some lobster. Bring a card with a $ 5 TJ Maxx Gift Card and local divorce lawyers' business cards. Enjoy your lobster and go. Win win. & # 39;
