Cheeky bride mocked for asking guests for £55 cash donations on wedding invites

We all know just how expensive weddings can be.

There's outfits, food and venue to think about, as well as so much more.

So we can see why couples often prefer receiving money as wedding gifts.

But one pair caused quite a stir when they cheekily asked for £55 in cash donations ahead of their big day.

The Australian bride and groom sent their guests a "wishing well" card with their invites which encouraged guests to pay a sum.

On the front of the card, the couple printed a cheeky poem telling their family and friends to "pull out your greens and let it be seen".

The couple explained how no expense had been spared on their wedding day.

In the card, it said: "Our bank account is in debt and we would like it go back into credit. Please visit the ATM, we know you're a gem."

Then the pair asked their loved ones to "place [their] cash in [the couple's] wishing well" to "make their dreams come true".

After it was shared on a popular shaming group on Facebook, users were left shocked with the invite.

One wrote: "Eeek… I feel like the choice of words about the wishing well is a bit… tacky? In Australia, 'greens' means $100 notes."

Another added: "Greedy. I wouldn't be surprised if they had an actual ATM at their wedding."

A third commented: "Oh wow. I've always wondered what the polite way to ask for money is. I know this isn't it!"

Meanwhile, other Facebook users were too busy focusing on the actual poem in the card.

A user joked: "1. Learn to budget. 2. Learn to rhyme."

Another Facebook user replied: "The biggest crime is that this is a TERRIBLE poem."
