That's just brutal. I tend to be generous, but I don't think that people should expect to make money by doing weddings. It may work well in theory, but in the practice it's not that easy done. I went to a engagement party with my brother, and it was like a stag for 150ish people. Since my parents live in Europe, me and my bro pitched in for them. So I put one pink 500euro bill inside. Ahh that was worth a lot more a few years back. To make it short, my friend made around $5000 from that engagement party, and plans to do a wedding in a year.
