Indian wedding is a big family affair. Everyone wants a fancy dream wedding of celebrities like Virat-Anushka and Deepika-Ranveer.  While families have to spend fortunes to seal such auspicious event, relatives and guests dip in the richness of food, fashion and celebrations.

So imagine what if you are invited to a wedding and made to pay for the food instead of the gift?  Yes! You read it right. A bride-to-be is contemplating to actually do it.  She is thinking of asking her wedding guests to pay for the dinner in lieu of gifts. She also shared her thoughts online and internet was quick enough to come up with hilarious reactions. 

The bride’s post read, “Did anyone ask their guests to pay for their meals? Everything is so expensive at the moment. We're either going to postpone our October wedding, cancel the guest part or ask our guests to pay for their meals in lieu of gifts. 

I've sent the invites out so not sure how we'd go about it. Please help. I'm stressed and sad."

The post went viral in no time and triggered a fest of hilarious comments. 

One user wrote, "Personally if I was asked to pay for my food within reason instead of a gift I would be really happy with that. So long as that was the understanding from the start. Some people just want to spend the day with their family and friends I see no issue with that."

Another wrote, "Exactly what I was going to say. Not a terrible deal if meals are in a reasonable price range and gifts aren't expected. I'd be okay with it."

A third user commented, "I agree. I would've been totally fine with going to a wedding like this. She's basically saying, "I'd rather have you at my wedding than any material gifts."

Interestingly, one user wrote, "That's what my dad did at his wedding, on the invite it said no gifts but please pay for your meal."

However, some were against the idea. 
One user wrote, “They really should have the wedding they can afford. It's extremely tacky to ask guests to pay for their meals.
"I mean you can have a small potluck backyard wedding. I don't think it's cool to ask people to essentially pay a fee to attend a wedding venue though."

So what’s your thoughts about it?
