He’s a Villain for Charging Her Cousin for Life-Size Cutouts of the Bride and Groom

A hurt and frustrated man sparked outrage on Reddit when he revealed that he charged his wife’s cousin for helping with her wedding. The backstory that follows is full of family drama, so buckle up.

They Love Working Together

OP and his wife own a printing company. They have a lot of fun with it and often do business with friends and family.

Many times, OP and his wife help out with weddings and other events for free.

They have a great time working on the projects together and are happy to lend a hand to the people close to them.

She Wanted Their Help

Recently, a cousin of OP’s wife came to them and asked if they could make the signage for her upcoming wedding.

She also wanted lifesize cutouts, guest books, and other paper-based goodies.

As usual, OP and his wife were happy to pitch in, and they were excited to get going on their next creation.

They ordered the materials they needed and started making the decorations in collaboration with the cousin and wedding planner.

They Didn’t Have All the Details

At that point, though, OP and his wife didn’t know exactly when the wedding was.

They figured they must have plenty of time.

Then, out of the blue, OP got a text from the wedding planner saying that they needed all the items on such-and-such date in order to set up in time for the ceremony.

It was a surprising message.

Was It Lost in the Mail?

Because by then, OP still didn’t have the final specs for what exactly the bride wanted.

They hadn’t received their invitation yet, either.

Confused, OP’s wife texted her cousin to ask for more details and to mention they hadn’t received their invitation.

That’s when the bride dropped the bomb.

They Didn’t Make the Cut

The cousin said that she and her groom had decided to downsize the wedding and only invite close friends and family.

OP and his wife didn’t make the cut.

They Were Invested

It was a slap in the face, especially since OP and his wife had already spent about $2000 on materials.

Not to mention all the time and back-and-forth with the cousin and wedding planner!

And OP had to delay other orders to accommodate the cousin, so he lost more money in the process.

He and his wife were totally hurt and insulted by being excluded from the wedding.

So, since the cousin didn’t consider them to be “close friends and family,” OP decided to send her an invoice for the materials they used for the wedding decorations.

OP also told the cousin that she had to pay before he would deliver the items because he wasn’t going to spend years chasing her down.

Now, the cousin is furious with OP and his wife, and members of her family are harassing them by phone.

He’s Done Wasting His Time

OP doesn’t want there to be strife in the family, but he’s not willing to waste his time and money on someone who doesn’t want him and his wife to be part of their lives.

And besides, he’s still giving the cousin a discount since he’s only charging for materials.
