Even though weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime event, they are an expensive affair. All the dreamy décor, yummy food, gilts, and glam need a lot of cash. While some opt for a smaller and more affordable wedding, others turn to their closed ones.
This woman also turned to her parents to sponsor her lavish and modern wedding. However, things didn’t go as expected. Taking to Reddit, the anonymous woman went on to rant about how her parents, who make ‘good money’, backtracked last minute.
She added that her dad earlier said the wedding budget was $40k (Rs 29,35,000 approx.). However, they later reduced it to only $20,000 (Rs 15,00,000 approx.).
She shared that it was initially her mom who decided to cut corners and reduce her wedding budget to half of what her dad had promised.
She further pointed out that her mom discussed with her friends and found out how much they paid for their daughter’s wedding and agreed to pay only $25k (Rs 18,33,000 approx.)
She concluded by asking if she was being an a**hole for wanting to elope after her parents cut her wedding budget in half from what they had promised.
People online gave mixed reactions to her situation. Some said that she was correct to get disheartened after her parents ditched her last minute.

Others said she was being entitled and whinging about her parents who were willing to give her Rs 15,00,000 of their hard-earned money to spend on just one event.
