If you’re not planning on paying for your wedding entirely, but rely on friends, count Maina Kageni out.
First of all why are wedding so expensive these days?
Some couples, or their families, decide they simply must pull out all the stops for a wedding. They want nothing but the best, even if they can’t afford to pay for it. To facilitate their dreams, they call on friends to fork out the money.
Maina is having none of these. He spoke about it in a discussion with Mwalimu Kingangi about failed relationships and more specifically people referred to as serial divorcees.
never invite me to a pre-wedding. I will never contribute, why should I con tribute for another man to go and enjoy someone? I left the group
Back in April this year, a bride cancelled her wedding after friends refused to contribute to her dream wedding.
Her budget was 60,000 pounds, and explains why it’s expensive
“A local psychic told us to go with the more expensive option, and we thought why the hell not?”
She made sure to RSVP the wedding with a cash demand.
The bride also explained she “made it CLEAR. If you couldn’t contribute, you weren’t invited to our exclusive wedding. It’s a once and a lifetime [sic] party.”
Much to the bride’s dismay, she and her fiancé quickly discovered that people were not willing to pay $1,500 to attend their special day.
In a now deleted Facebook post, she shared the reasons for the cancellation, saying, “I specifically…asked for cash gifts. How could we have our wedding that we dreamed of without proper funding? We talked to a few people who even promised us more to make our dream come true.”
