Awful newlyweds ask wedding guest to 'adjust' her £100 gift

A woman has sparked outrage after she revealed that a wedding gift she gave was returned to her for not being 'generous enough'.

The unnamed woman posted on forum Mumsnet asking for advice after the couple contacted her saying that the £100 cheque she provided wasn't enough.

She revealed in the post how the couple had requested cash gifts, but returned her cheque explaining that they were surprised by her contribution and suggested an 'adjustment'.

She added that the couple said they were 'surprised that your contribution didn’t seem to match the warmth of your good wishes on our big day. In view of your own position, if you wanted to send any adjustment it would be thankfully received.’

The poster added that the reference to her 'own position' was likely in relation to an inheritance she received.

She then asked the forum for advice on how to proceed: 'Should I reply, ring them, ignore it or what?’

The majority of the replies were outraged with many advising her to cancel the cheque and even inform mutual friends about it.

In the end, the poster decided to respond with one simple sentence.

'I assume this was some sort of mistake?'

It'll be interesting to see what response she gets, if any, from the happy couple.
