The internet has slammed a groom-to-be over his reaction to his bride’s budget for a wedding dress.

Writing on Reddit, the American man said his fiancee had lost her job due to COVID-19 and although they had just bought a new car, they were still going ahead with their wedding but on a smaller budget

The told the website that his fiancee had come into the bathroom looking “a little bit nervous”.

“She asked if she could buy a $US350 wedding dress that she’s been looking at for months,” which is around $500AUD.

He then asked his wife where the $350 would come from.

This the part the internet didn’t take to, with over 1300 comments pointing out how cheap the dress was.

One reader said: “It seems like maybe you’re delusional about the cost of weddings, that $350 price is absurdly low for a wedding dress, and most grooms would be jumping with excitement at how reasonable their bride is.”

Another said: “My dress cost $1800. My veil cost 200. I haven’t even gotten my alterations yet and I expect a few hundred from that too.

“Even at those prices, I am still not considered in the ‘ridiculously expensive’ dress range. 350 is effin cheap. 350 probably IS a thrift/used dress she found.”

The man has since responded saying “I love my fiancée and I want her to feel beautiful. I feel like a total a******.

“I just assumed wedding dresses weren’t that much unless they were like custom made or a celebrity dress.”
