Couple tell wedding guests that the price of their gift will decide their meal

Another day, another outrageous couple with outrageous wedding gift requests...

But this couple might have taken the wedding cake.

When attending a wedding, one expects to be fed. We're not saying that we'll get hangry if there is no food, but generally there might be a few appetisers or a full meal. Not feeding your wedding guests is also totally acceptable, if you let them know, of course.

One couple might have found a "brilliant" way of dealing with all these questions while simultaneously creating a new kind of wedding catering drama.

A user on Reddit decided to expose a couple by posting their wedding invitation on a Reddit forum called, Wedding Shaming. Very aptly named, the forum is "A place to shame wedding themes, brides, grooms, wedding party, in-laws, outlaws, guests, Uncle Bob, vendors... you name it, we shame it!"

The user shared the RSVP invitation that stated that guests who would be attending need to check the preferred dining level that corresponded to the amount their wedding gift was worth.

There are four tiers ranging from the most basic level, Loving Gift, to the highest level, Platinum Gift, with a price difference of $750 between the two.

While you have to give this couple points for originality, we have to admit that this seems a bit too extra.
