Hen dos are difficult to plan whether at home or away. But if you are planning the ultimate bridal shower abroad, then there are a few extras you’ve got to consider: flights, hotels, rooms, religious obligations.

One bridal party who organised a trip to the mecca of parties – Las Vegas – soon found out it wasn’t going to be as epic as they hoped.

A bridesmaid emailed all 16 attendees with a list of pretty strict rules that included no drinks, sex, or uninvited guests in the room all because of her religious beliefs.

She also asked them each to send her $50 (£38) to spend on food she would be buying for everyone.

In the email she wrote: ‘I know Vegas is known as “sin city” but despite this, I still have to uphold the moral code our Father inscribed in my heart.

‘Due to this, I have some ground rules. These will not only help me remain aligned with the Church, but also keep us out of trouble.’

The kicker is that she wasn’t even supposed to attend the shower but was asked out of pity.

The email, which was shared on a Facebook wedding shaming group, has now been deleted, but quickly went viral.

As most people prefer to sleep in on holidays, especially when they’ve been on a bender the night before, the group weren’t happy to be told they’d have to be up at 7am on a Sunday to go to a Vegas church.

The bridesmaid wrote that she didn’t want to miss Sunday church service and planned for them all to a different one than her usual for the occasion.

She wrote: ‘There will be no sex taking place in our room/anywhere in the suite as none of us has committed ourselves to husbands yet. There is no need to have pre-marital sex.

‘Please Venmo me $50 (£38) as I will be buying groceries for the hotel room. The last thing we need is to be famished in the desert heat.

‘Absolutely under no circumstances – no drugs. Drugs bring nothing but problems, please leave your Adderall at home.

‘I understand you have a medical condition, but as we will not be studying, there is no need for you to take your methamphetamines.’

She added that this was all for now but she would be adding more to the list as she comes up with it.

The list didn’t go down well with the person who shared it with the group.

The post was liked and shared over a thousand times before it was deleted.

Most people who read it felt the woman should be entitled to her own religious obligations but shouldn’t force other people to abide by it.

Others questioned why she’d chosen to go to Vegas, also known as sin city, in the first place.
