Wedding Guest Asks Bride To Return His Present After Realising Awkward Mistake

Long gone are the days of simply picking something from your pal's wedding list to give them on their special day.

Now most couples ask for money towards their honeymoon or their lives together, leaving us all the awkward position of trying to decide how much to give.

But one bride was completely shocked when her husband's uncle messaged her months after the wedding to ask for a large chunk of his generous cash present back, reports the Sun .

Sharing the story on Facebook, she wrote: "After my wedding my husband and I opened gifts and cards.


"I opened a card from my husband's aunt and uncle and they had written us a £160 cheque.

"We were like 'whoa, but okay he makes good money'.

"Three months later we get a phone call and the 'generous' uncle said he only meant to write a £16 cheque and we need to give him £144 back. Like who does that?!"

In the post she makes it clear they don't believe the uncle has money problem and says her new mother-in-law, who is the uncle's sister, is also furious.

They were so angry they ended up sending them all of the money back.

Oh dear...

Her story is the latest in a long line of bizarre wedding tales, and last week we heard about a bride who is debating not serving food at her all-day wedding in a bid to cut costs.

One of her bridesmaids shared her pal's plan on Facebook as she's worried about all the guests being hungry.

She's also concerned guests will be extremely drunk if they are drinking all day without having anything to eat.

The friend wrote: "Okay so, I'm bridesmaid in a wedding in May.

"This girl I've known for about 10 years now is the bride, and they are really focused on their wedding being a nice and relaxed time on some large outdoor property. Lots of handmade items, barn style, bonfire, it's gonna be super cute.

"I love simplicity and it's totally them."

Sounds lovely so far...

She goes on: "I just found out that to cut costs, they're not providing food. Like, what!

"It's a whole day thing, even into the night, and no food?!

"I'm gonna end up ordering a pizza or something for myself, my partner and our friends while we're there I guess.

"Everyone else I can see getting hammered with no food and it's going to be messy.

"As a bridesmaid, should I say something?"

Do you think it's a good idea?

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
