Newlyweds spend a lot of time planning their nuptials to not only make the day special for them but also for those celebrating with them.

And there are other brides- and grooms-to-be who just don't understand the concept of gratitude.

TikToker Kelli—a.k.a. @kellikeylimepie—shared a video demonstrating the latter, in which a couple asked their wedding guests to pay for their own meals.

A copy of the phyiscal wedding invitation shown in the clip informed guests to:

"Please understand that you are obligated to pay for your own meal.”

The overlaying text that showed some level of understanding about the unconventional demand read:

“We get it, you blew all your $ on a wedding…”

The clip's caption asked the bride and groom to "tell us how you really feel."

The wedding invitation also included another specific request.

It read:

“All gifts are appreciated; monetary gifts preferred."

While monetary gifts are not unusual at weddings, instructing guests to pay for their meals was not something that sat well with TikTokers.

It's a good thing the faces of the bride and groom were not seen in the video.

The ensuing mockery would be enough for them to go into hiding.

The turnout might not be as expected if these Redditors received this wedding invitation.

There might have been room for negotiation.
