A bride has sparked outrage after telling wedding guests they are ‘dead to her’ if they miss her wedding due to the coronavirus epidemic.
In the original message, which was shared to Reddit, the anonymous bride-to-be, from the US, explained how she is due to tie the knot in 37 days, after spending ‘thousands’ on the big day.
She penned: ‘I’ve spent thousands of dollars. I’ve been working out, budgeting, dodging family politics land mines, chased rsvps, tried my hand and both electrical and wood work, personalized gifts, answered a million emails, aaand drank lots of wine in the bathtub so I feel justified in remind my guests that…’
Then, in a separate box-out, she continued: ‘I don’t care. If you miss my wedding because of coronavirus paranoia. You are dead to me.’

And unsurprisingly, many were quick to take to the comments section to slam the bride-to-be’s outspoken views.
‘I would be mad too, but damn think about other people than yourself woman,’ wrote one, while a second commented:
‘Cool, so any wedding guests that have anything resembling an autoimmune or chronic illness will risk their lives by attending her wedding. I’m sure that’s worth the thousands of dollars she spent on her own entitlement.’
A third penned: ‘My cousin’s wedding was supposed to be next weekend, you know what they did? Reschedule it! Because they’re smart,’ while a fourth added:
‘My grandma is almost 90. I see her often. I think it’s terrible to be selfish in a situation like this. Sorry about your wedding but I wouldn’t risk my family’s health. Deal with it.’
The person who shared the post went on to explain the bride had attempt to ‘claim satire’ after being called out – which added further fuel to the fire.

One who took to the comments section told how their family member had canceled their wedding day, before adding, ‘it’s what needs to be done right now’ (pictured)
One raged: ‘Shout out to my BIL who just canceled their wedding party at the end of the month due to the virus. Are they disappointed? Obviously. Is it what needs to be done right now? Definitely.’
A second added: ‘A wedding in Brazil had one guest come from Aspen, and he was positive with Corona. Now 200 people are being monitored and might have to be tested. so, unless this girl hands out hand disinfectant as party gifts…’
A further commented: ‘It sucks and I’d be mad if I had to cancel my wedding BUT not mad at guests for not wanting to go to a wedding in a pandemic.’
‘I’d try to cancel as much as I could, get courthouse married and then throw a wedding after the virus is over. I know easier said than done but we are in a pandemic.’
Meanwhile, others took to the comments section to express sympathy for the bride-to-be’s situation.
‘I’m pretty sure she’s just expressing her frustration with the situation rather than being serious,’ wrote one. ‘I’m sure a lot of brides-to-be can sympathize with putting in time and money, and then dealing with the disappointment that your loved ones won’t show, and that it’s out of your control.’
‘Posting this to a wedding group rather than her personal page where all her guests will see it makes it seem more lighthearted.’
Another agreed: ‘Looks like an obvious joke to me. Wedding planning is stressful even without a pandemic. Let people vent.’
Others appeared to sympathize with the bride-to-be, and urged people to let her vent (pictured)
