A bride was beaten up for publicly shaming her best friend for the cheap gift she gave her on her wedding day.

Angry reactions came in when the anonymous bridal couple from Brisbane, Queensland complained about receiving two $ 5 Kmart towels from their closest partner on a Facebook community group.

The woman raved that the cheapness of the gift was very "painful" and a "slap in the face" after inviting her buddy to her "exclusive" ceremony and reception.

But if sympathy was what she expected, something else came along – many branded it as "shallow" and "mean" for caring so much about material goods.

The drama began when the bride asked for advice on how to deal with an offensively cheap gift.

“Has anyone received wedding favors in the past that were a slap in the face? How did you deal with it? & # 39; She wrote.

& # 39; My partner and I had a very exclusive wedding, all inclusive and the focus was on our guests.

“Our best friend, husband, and children knew this and gave us two Kmart towels valued at about $ 10.

“That hurt us a lot because it was a slap in the face. We don't know how to deal with it. & # 39;

But instead of receiving advice, she was hit by a torrent of hatred.

“Are you really serious? It's not what you make of it, ”wrote one woman.

A second just said, "Karma."

The offensive articles? One woman hit back and said Kmart towels (pictured) were a “great” gift and perfectly fine if that was all her friend could afford

& # 39; Kmart towels are a great gift who cares how much they cost. What a flat person, ”added a third, while a fourth argued that the family might only be able to afford $ 10.

"Be grateful that they wanted to be there to celebrate your special day and focus on the traits of their personality rather than the material items they or didn't give you," she said.

Others noted that the bride was lucky enough to have a wedding in a year when countless celebrations were canceled and plans turned upside down by the coronavirus pandemic.

"I also live in Brisbane and at this point, I'm just happy if my wedding can take place in August 2021," one woman replied.
