Wedding guest dies after bride slams her for 'petty' response to save the date
A bride-to-be who shamed a wedding guest over a "petty" response to her Save the Date was stunned to learn that the guest died just days later, the Daily Mail reports.
Last Sunday, Amy Domagala, 36, of Chicago, voiced her frustrations in a Facebook group called "That's it, I'm wedding shaming (non ban happy edition)." Domagala had reportedly sent a Save the Date invitation to Arlene Post, a friend of her fiancé's mother, only to receive a snarky letter in return.
In a handwritten note, Post, who hailed from Milwaukee, complained that she had to pay an additional charge to receive Domagala's invitation, adding that an enclosed gifted magnet had cracked in the mail.
"What kind of invitation is this where I had to pay postage due to get your mail!" Post wrote. "The magnet was cracked as well."
In sharing Post's message, Domagala wrote that she had mailed other Save the Dates and used two-ounce stamps to account for the extra weight of the magnet. She added that other invitees from California, Arizona, Florida and Georgia had received her invitation without any issues.
"What the **** lady," Domagala wrote. "First of all, clearly that was not our intention. I put additional postage on it. People in Florida, Washington, Texas have gotten it with no additional postage needed. Second of all you wasted an additional 55 cent to send that letter to us? Next time, refuse the letter if your *** is going to ***** about $3."
Domagala wasn't done.
"I am going to be petty as hell and send her a nasty *** letter back with a check in it for $3.51 to cover her postage and hopefully she doesn't come to the wedding," she wrote.
Domagala's wish was granted just days later. In an update, she revealed that Post had died.
"UPDATE TO POST: So I submitted this on September 22 (approved 30th) as of September 27th SHE DIED!!!!!!!" Domagala wrote. "HOW CRAZY IS THAT!!!!!!!"
The bride-to-be said she was going to mail her response and the check last Friday but missed the mail pickup. That same day, she and her fiancé received a call from his mother about Post's death.
Domagala's post has since gone viral, garnering over 3,600 likes on social media and stunning fellow members of the group.
"OMG What a turn of events!" one person wrote.
