WEDDINGS are pricey and couples often find ways to cut back on costs, including switching out flowers for candles and cutting back on numbers.
But one couple took the novel approach of asking guests to make a bank transfer for £40 to cover their meal in order to RSVP.
People were unimpressed with the couple's request – particularly as they also had a gift list.
Taking to Reddit, the disgruntled guest said: "Bottom of the wedding invite says: 'We are kindly asking you to RSVP by contributing $50 per person towards the meal. Desserts included.'
"There was also a smaller card with the invite listing three places they are registered for wedding gifts.
"It’s been 15 years since I’ve planned my own wedding, so maybe this is more commonplace now, but it feels sort of cash-grabby and tacky."

She added: "Plus, I’ve been to this restaurant before, and I can get a full meal and drink for less than $30."
Fellow Redditors were quick to respond to the request and they weren't impressed.
