Last week, Amy Duggar's very disappointed fiancé, Dillon King, announced that TLC would not be filming their dream wedding.

Now that the network won't be footing the ceremony's bill, Jim Bob Duggar's niece took to Instagram to provide an address for fans looking to send congratulatory cards— and perhaps gifts.

"We've had so many emails wondering where people can send cards and etc. that we decided we needed to share the address!" the bride-to-be, 28, wrote over the weekend. "For anyone who sends anything to us, I will personally hand write you a letter!"

Immediately, critics began slamming Amy's message.

"Tell your fans that since you have been so blessed they can send a monetary gift in Amy's name to a sexual abuse prevention program or any other charity of your choice," popular Facebook page Duggar Family News: Life Is Not All Pickles And Hairspray posted.

"I find Amy's request in the poorest of taste," one commenter wrote.

"She needs to stop mooching! Get a job! Stop begging people for gifts," said another of the aspiring country singer. "I am going to send Amy a nice package of job applications!"

Amy isn't the first Duggar accused of begging for cash and freebies. As RadarOnline.com reported, new mom Jill, 23, and husband Deryck Dillard, 26, asked for fans to financially support their mission trip— but refused to divulge details about the mystery adventure.

Also, Radar has learned that the family is requesting donations on their official YouTube page to create new videos. However, new clips are only posted sporadically and seem very low budget.
