If you have ever been part of a wedding one way or another, you must have seen just how stressful it can be. There is plenty of pressure on both the groom and bride since it is supposed to be the happiest day of their lives. It is only natural for them to dream of a perfect wedding day. They need the best venue, flower arrangement, cake, music, food, and centerpieces they can get. Although this might seem like a lot, some people even take wedding planning to a new level altogether.
Do you need an example? Let us take a look at Bride A who sent out a very specific dress code that all guests must follow. What makes it so different is that she specified the attire according to the weight! When one guest put it up on Reddit, it went viral right away. This “bridezilla” started to get a lot of backlash from other people about the ridiculous dress code.
The story starts when the bride took to Facebook to make an announcement addressed to her wedding guests. It did not take long before her message made its way to Reddit. She wrote the long message for her upcoming destination wedding, which was going to be held in Hawaii.
It is not unusual for a bride to talk to her guests about various wedding-related things. However, what makes it so odd is that she demanded the guests shell out thousands of dollars to follow a dress code.
A Real Bridezilla
When it comes to the wedding party, it is common for brides to assign a specific color or even a particular dress for her bridesmaids. These ladies might not like the style, but they are usually willing to do anything that will make the bride happy.
However, this is not some story about the bride forcing her friends and relatives to wear an over-the-top dress during the wedding. No, this bridezilla created a dress code for all the people who planned to attend the wedding. And she did not limit this to the wedding party!
For Visual Purposes
Her post began innocently enough. At the top part, she merely greeted the guests and then followed it up with this announcement: “Who’s ready for Hawaii 2019?” After that, she continued by saying that even though it was still one and a half years away, she needed to discuss something important with them. As you might have guessed, it had something to do with the dress code.
The bride then went on to say that she was addressing this matter a long time in advance to make sure that the guests could have enough time to “find and pick out something nice.” She also explained that the specific dress code was put in place because she wanted everyone to make an “incredible visual effect” during the “synchronized dance” part of the reception.
Did you think that the bride telling her guests what kind of outfit to wear during the wedding would be the weirdest part of this? Well, you should know that this was only the start of the story. What truly caused such a strong reaction was the way she decided to do it.
In her post, she split the dress code into five individual categories. They were as follows: women weighing 100 to 160 pounds, men weighing 100 to 200 pounds, women weighing more than 160 pounds, men weighing more than 200 pounds, and children. It was already unusual enough for her to instruct all the guests on what to wear. However, it was also insulting that she did this based on their weight! We doubt that anyone expected to hear such a thing when they RSVPed.
Suede & Velvet Only
You must be intrigued by the guidelines she set for each category! Women weighing anywhere from 100 to 160 pounds were asked to wear a velvet green sweater and orange suede pants. On top of that, they were asked to sport Louboutin heels that are for sale at $700 per pair. The bride made sure to emphasize that these ladies should only get a red pair because “the effect will amaze you” when they “spin and lift” their feet. We aren’t sure what she’s going on about, but let us move on.
As hard as it is to fathom, this is not where things end. To complete the look, the guests were told to don a scarf! Of course, she was not going to settle for any scarf. She asked them to bring a cashmere scarf by Burberry. Needless to say, this was going to cost a couple of hundred dollars as well.
What about their male counterparts? Apparently, men weighing anywhere from 100 to 200 pounds need to wear something else altogether. Even though the ensemble is cheaper, it is equally strange.
The ensemble came with a purple fuzzy jacket, a soda hat, and white sneakers. To top off this silly look, the bride also asked the people who fell into this category to bring “plain glow sticks”… What?
Decked Out In Black
All right, onto the next one. What about the women weighing more than 160 pounds? The bride wanted to keep things simple by making them wear black. That’s right, she asked them to wear black pants and a black sweater. The bride was not that fuzzy and told them they can pick “any material”.
To cap it off, these ladies were asked to slip on a pair of black heels. We do not know if it is more offensive that she created an entire category for women who weigh more than 160 pounds or that she asked them to wear an all-black outfit.
Camouflage For You
If you were wondering just how weird it will get, just you wait. The bride had some weird dress code instructions in store for them. Let us now take a look at what she asked of the men weighing over 200 pounds.
We have no idea why, but she asked the male guests who fell into this category to wear camouflage! The only non-camo thing would be a pair of black sneakers. Why would she ask them to do such a thing?
Of course, there was no way she was going to limit her silly instructions to the adult guests. There were going to be kids attending the wedding as well. She wanted them to be dressed in all read. According to her, their outfits need to be “red from head to toe.”
To ensure that she got her message across, the bride told the guests that the children will be the ones to “form the shape of a heart” at some point in the synchronized dance. This is the reason the outfits “need to be true red, not blood orange.”
You were wrong if you thought the bride was going to limit her instructions to the dress code. She wanted to make it clear that the guests did not only have the “required” outfits but also needed to bring their own “formal attire” change of clothes. They would wear this after the dance.
Even though the bride did not specify anything for that part of the reception, she did tack on the fact that it is an “extremely upscale” venue. It meant that they had to be at their “absolute best”, of course.
We know it is easy to assume that the whole dress code fiasco is just a joke, although you only need to see the end of her message to dispel any such thoughts. She was very serious.
The bride did not hesitate to send the guests this warning: “If you look like trash, so will we”. After this, she went on to talk about the proper budget that the guests should spend on the attire. Her computation was “at least $1,000.” She went on to say, “This wedding is 24k themed for a reason.”
It was surprising that the bride seemed to realize just how overwhelmed the guests might feel after reading her message. We doubt that many people can shell out that much on something like this.
This is the reason she made it clear that they had a “year and a half to get working”, so there was no way they could not follow her guidelines about the dress code. Was she even going to have any guests left after this message that she sent?
We have to admit that the guest who leaked this on Reddit had been very brave. Clearly, the bride did not want this to get out of the immediate circle. Despite her wishes, the post went up on the internet and made its rounds online anyway.
It did not take long before the post received more than 10,000 shares. Aside from that, it received thousands of comments from Redditors. A lot of commenters blasted her for “body shaming” the guests and called her names such as “self-centered”. Some people decided t pay attention to the colors that she indicated in the message, however.
We think that the friends of the bride had the right to say something about the clothes she asked them to wear. One person went to the effort to show what the guests would look like if they followed her instructions. As you can see, it was not very flattering.
No one can blame them, however. The colors seem to have been randomly chosen, which is annoying when you consider how much they cost. On top of that, the wedding was in Hawaii as well. It is normally warm in that part of the country, so a velvet sweater and corduroy pants made for a bad combination.
A Sort Of Follow-Up
It was not long before the bride found out that a guest posted the dress code online. Are you shocked to hear that she went on Facebook to make a post for the guests? This went up on Reddit later on as well.
She took the time to make a passionate note that read, “I could not be more crushed, betrayed, or saddened…knowing someone went behind my back and made fun of me is one of the worst feelings”. She clearly was not happy with the “snitch”. She also said, “Boy, will you be paying”. Yikes!
A Polygraph Party?
After the whole fiasco, the bride told her wedding guests that she planned to hold a “polygraph party” at her house. This event involved the use of a “real polygraph test”, which she got for “$99 on Amazon”. This was her plan to find out which one of them leaked the dress code online.
Not only that, but she also said that those who would not come to the odd party was “presumed guilty”.
Are you wondering which polygraph test she bought? If you are planning to buy one as well, you should know that this here is the one she got. She decided it was worth it to buy the best of the best for such a serious case. She was not going to buy a cheap polygraph. This was a mystery she needed to crack.
At any rate, you should keep in mind that polygraphs have not been proven to work. Even so, we have to say that a polygraph party sounds like a lot of fun. It sure is one way to throw a memorable party.
In one more post, she said that it was fine if there were some people who did not feel happy about her dress code.
They only needed to talk to her about it. There were other things they could do if they did not want to join the synchronized dance, after all. They could stick around to help the staff “clean up after dinner” or even “contribute to the honeymoon”. She told them, “Anything counts”.
Not Having It
When she posted this, a couple of the guests could no longer stand it. One of them even went as far as to make this long comment to express their thoughts on the issue. They then declined the invitation to the wedding after hearing about this silly dress code.
We have to say that it sure sounded tempting to do the same thing. If we were in their shoes, we would have done it too. The dress code and expenses sounded outrageous enough. We cannot fathom why the bride would want her guests to help with cleaning up. It is not something you ask wedding guests to do.
It makes sense to us that so many people had a lot of things to say about this. Barely any of them were positive, however. The original post had an overwhelming number of comments! Many people wanted to weigh in just to confirm how ridiculous the story was.
Some people started to wonder how the story could be true since it sounded too far-fetched. Trust us when we say it is real. Aside from the skeptics, many commenters got mad about the way she discriminated based on weight as well as her approach to catching the ‘snitch’.
Well, it is not news to anyone that Redditors have a lot of free time on their hands. One of them decided to figure out how the color scheme was going to look all. They made this amazing mock-up to demonstrate the point they were trying to make.
We will just let the diagram speak for itself! There are a couple of obvious highlights there, however. The “Pepsi” hat made a lot of people snicker. Of course, how can we ignore the silly division she made based on the weight of her guests?
You were wrong if you thought that you heard everything the bride had to say. She wanted to address those who made fun of her too. When she found out that the post went viral, she went on a full-on rant.
She tried to justify the decision she made by talking about how she and her fiancé were “certified spiritual healers.” We really thought that this is true. After all, if they were the real deal, we would have expected her to handle the entire situation with more composure and dignity.
During her long rant, the bride mentioned the reasoning that played a part in the color scheme. One can easily assume there was some logic behind their choices, but it seems like this is not true. When she spoke about the colors they chose, this bride mentioned that those “black and camouflage outfits” were supposed to represent the devil and they will then “shoo away”.
Even though that sounds very fascinating, it does not excuse the fact that she requested the heavier guests to wear the particular colors. Do you want to see what people had to say about the explanation?
It was like the bride was working hard to dig herself out of this hole. However, she only made a deeper and deeper hole for herself in the end. It seems like she was not done yet when she separated the guests by weight. She also had a so-called ‘logical’ reason for this.
Don’t worry, the bride did not disappoint. Of course, people from all over the world were curious to hear about what happened next. With so much ridicule and outrage on the internet and among the guests, there was no way this wedding would actually happen… right? Let us see if we’re correct.
The fact that she thought it was a good idea to split up the guests by their weight was insensitive enough already. This only alienated guests. However, when she started to compare “overweight guests” to the devil they needed to shoo away, it was a field day for the Redditors.
They did not know if she wanted to demean them on purpose, but it sure did look that way. It felt like the bride failed to do anything correctly. However, this was not the end of this at all. There was something else that made others think about her in a different light.
Psychics Desensitization Chamber
The bride thought it was a good idea to mention that she and her fiancé met at a psychic desensitization chamber. What do we get from this piece of information? Well, she was clearly not a conventional girl.
On top of this, she went on to say that the experience led her to factor in her “traditions and beliefs” into the wedding day. This is perfectly understandable, although we are certain that she could have done this on a different day. Now, what about the money issue? There was another reason for this…
Not only did she have ridiculous demands about their outfits, but she also wanted her guests to spend at least $1,000 for their “regular” wedding clothes. Now, how did she justify asking such a thing from the guests? She tried to do this when she went on her rant.
Apparently, this expensive clothing was meant to “represent the riches” that the bride and groom hoped to have in the future. A lot of people like to incorporate some kind of symbolism into the wedding, although we do not think it is a good idea to ask everyone on the guest list to do this.
In all honesty, this whole deal is basically an awareness problem. The most incredible part of this story is that the bride really wants her wedding to be perfect. She wants happiness and love, as everyone does, but she isn’t aware that the world doesn’t revolve around her.
Money does not grow on trees, after all. She definitely went overboard when she asked others to spend so much money on her wedding. On top of the $1,000 minimum, keep in mind that people already had to pay for their flights to and from Hawaii.
All the speculation now brings us back to the most pressing question about this event. What will happen to the wedding? There is nothing else to do but to wait and see. We really do hope them nothing but the best, but we also want them to live a little and stop ruining the day of their friends and family.
More than anything else, we want the bride to stop this kind of behavior. She should not force wedding guests to spend so much money. After all, she might have a tiny wedding party if she keeps behaving in this manner. We hope it was worth it for her version of a “perfect wedding”.
Did you think this story was terrible? Just wait until you get a load of these bridezillas. You might think that a wedding was going to be all about starting a life together with the love of their lives. However, these ladies were also insistent about the picturesque or grand quality of the weddings they want.
For one, this one lady had been trying to find free flowers. She got in touch with a florist and asked for 80 hours of work free of charge! On top of that, she did not see any problems with the request. It seems like she failed to see how distasteful this was.
It started out fairly innocently. This bride somehow managed to get the contact details of a certain florist. As you can imagine, the florist followed standard operating procedures and gave her a quote.
The bride also attached a photo to show the kind of flowers she wanted to have at the wedding. This was a good idea because it showed the style she was going after. As a professional, the florist did not mind abiding by her requests. There were no problems with making the centerpieces.
This is where everything started to fall apart. Like the bride we previously discussed, this lady had certain strange ideas about how a wedding should be planned. When she learned the price she would be charged, her ears perked up. This is the kind of behavior many animals display when they feel threatened! She asked the florist why she needed to pay that much money for the flowers.
Like we said earlier, the florist is a professional. She was gracious enough to explain the breakdown of the price even though she did not need to do this. The truth was that she estimated that she would be spending 80 hours on the floral arrangements the bride wanted.
Ah, there is truly nothing like an entitled person! The bride was surprised that she needed to pay the florist for doing all of this. Most people know that this is how the world works, but not this bride. Who would have thought that this is a common affliction among the bride population? To be fair, maybe it was only this bride who got all confused.
At any rate, this bride offered to pay with a different currency for the flower arrangements. She said she wanted to pay in “nice pictures” and “exposure” instead! The florist felt incredulous by the suggestion the bride made. Essentially, this woman was asking to get her services for free! Can you imagine working for 80 hours and then not getting paid for it? It was simply ridiculous. Perhaps some brides are so out of touch with reality that they failed to understand how real life works. The previous bride went all out when it comes to the attire of her guests, while this one does not want to pay for her flowers.
Of course, the florist decided to turn down this “kind” offer from the bride. Instead, she gave her some leads on the other florists around the area. However, we highly doubt that any of them would agree to work for her without getting paid. In all honesty, the florist was the epitome of grace the whole time.
It is not surprising to hear that the bride got annoyed by such an ordeal. Apparently, she already shelled out $10,000 on the wedding by then. While we understand that she wanted to cut down costs, we do not think the appropriate reaction was to start asking for free stuff…
It is not uncommon to hear of brides throwing tantrums or calling off their wedding. There are also times when the groom is the one that gets fed up. Let us take another look at a bride who had to deal with something much worse. In the middle of the wedding planning, she learned that her sister was pregnant. Normally, this would be the cause of celebration among family members…
Well, the bride did not feel pleased about the turn of events whatsoever. As a matter of fact, she got mad! Not only that, but she also removed her sibling from the wedding. Apparently, she did not her pregnant sister there since she was going to ’cause problems’ when it comes to dress sizes. The bride even went as far as to complain about the poor timing of the pregnancy.
However, the worst part of the story was that the sister had, at that point, actually been trying to get pregnant for a couple of years before it finally came true. Even though the bride knew this, she only thought it was an inconvenience because the dresses now had to be altered.
A couple of months later, the bride had been with her mom and her wedding planner. In the middle of this meeting, the mother got a phone call. She picked it up and spoke on the phone the whole time! By the time she put down the phone, she looked up with red eyes. It turns out that her daughter, the bride’s sister, had miscarried.
Turn Of Events
Without even a second hesitation, the bride only says that the sister can now return to the wedding since she was not pregnant anymore. Her mother froze as soon as she heard this from the bride. She then told her daughter in a soft but deadly tone that she no longer plans to pay for her wedding.
As you can expect, this bride suddenly behaved hysterically. She was horrified, to say the least. She began to shriek questions and wave her arms around. As her mother turned her back on the bride and left, the daughter was left both helpless and screaming at the store.
Canceled By The Groom
After the huge fiasco, they decided to let the wedding planner go. However, she did not mind in this change of plans at all. She did not have any interest in planning the wedding of this bridezilla. As a matter of fact, she was on the mother’s side.
The following day, the entire wedding was canceled officially. It took them less than twenty-four hours to call It off. However, you might be interested to hear exactly who made the decision. We have to admit that we are not surprised that it was the groom who did it!
No One Wears White
Did you have any idea that there were so many bridezilla stories out there? We certainly did not. Even though we cannot help but roll our eyes at the dramatic brides, they are certainly entertaining. That said, let us move on and talk about the tantrum this other bride threw.
Another person decided to take to the internet and vent about the frustration they had with a different wife-to-be. She was marrying the brother-in-law of the poster. In the beginning, the two women did not get along very well. When the wedding planning started, it only got worse.
Apparently, the poster was very close to her brother-in-law, the groom. As a matter of fact, she considered him to be one of her best friends. Maybe the future bride felt jealous of her. Of course, it was also possible that she did not truly have any animosity for the poster.
We do not know why they have such a sour relationship, but we do know that things have not improved along the way. As a matter of fact, it only deteriorated as time went on.
When it was time to plan the wedding, the groom asked the poster to be a groomsman at the wedding! Even though this was not a common practice, the other groomsmen did not mind this whatsoever.
Can you just imagine how much of an impact this had on the relationship between the poster and the bride? Their relationship started to get worse from then on.
Perhaps you might have already guessed that the bride was a little problematic. Around two weeks after they picked out the wedding party, the groom called the poster. The groom then informed her that his fiancé did not feel comfortable with this arrangement, especially when it came to the stag party.
It might be a good time to mention that the husband of the poster was going to be at the stag night too. At any rate, the bride did not want a woman at the outing since she thought it might cause issues. The poster let it slide because she wanted everyone to get along.
Let us fast forward to the wedding. It began without a hitch, as it normally would. However, the groom went up to his sister-in-law during the reception. He looked mortified for some reason she could not understand. She found the bride glaring at her at that moment. The groom asked her if there was anything that she could change into.
Apparently, the dress she had been wearing was a little too white for the bride. The truth was that she was wearing a floral dress with some white peeking through. This bride got so angry that she gave an ultimatum. Either the poster was going to change dresses or go home to look for another outfit. The poster decided to simply leave the wedding.
The next bride we plan to tell you about decided to take insensitive one notch higher with the demands she made. She had a clear idea of the wedding she wanted. They planned everything down to the very last detail. However, it seems like they overlooked just one little thing.
The bride posted a question online because she was having a dilemma of sorts. She had no idea what she should do. She asked the others if it was going to be bad if she fired the maid of honor. Are you ready to hear why she was even considering doing such a thing?
This is going to be a little hard to explain. Perhaps this is because the bride appeared to be unaware of just how insensitive she was. Apparently, she wanted to kick out the maid of honor was that she gave birth to a baby only three weeks ago. It was only natural that she would still have the baby weight on!
Apparently, the bride did not like the fact that the maid of honor has yet to completely slim down. She did not think it was possible to lose a lot of weight before the wedding happens. How far into the future was the wedding anyway? At that point, they still had three more weeks.
The bride was throwing such a huge fit because she felt worried that the maid of honor was not going to fit into the dress as it was. This is the reason she wanted to find someone who was going to fit right into the dress without any need for alterations.
The dress had already undergone a number of alterations, which is why the bride did not want to send it to the tailor yet again. What makes this so unbelievable is the fact that the maid of honor is a very important member of the wedding party. It seems like the bride did not feel that way, however.
It turns out that the maid of honor actually had a backup dress that she was going to use if she did not lose the weight before the wedding. However, this bridezilla was insistent on the dress the maid of honor was going to wear.
She refused to have her maid of honor wear the backup dress. Aside from that, she tried to make it clear that she was not actually ‘fat shaming’ her maid of honor. Did she not know what that phrase meant or what?
However, the bride did not stop there either. She went on to say that there was a certain ‘someone else’ that she wanted to take over the position. As a matter of fact, she was compelled to say that the maid of honor previously promised she would work to fit into this dress for the wedding.
It seems like the bride had already reached the limit when it comes to the number of alterations she wanted the dress to undergo. How bad is it that she decided to fire the maid of honor and then replace her with a slimmer person? Yikes.
People from different parts of the globe wanted to weigh in on the issue. As you can imagine, just about all the comments gave the bride flak for her “dilemma”. Everyone wanted to have a say about the story.
It is somewhat reassuring to hear that people disapproved of what this bride was planning. Don’t you feel happy that everyone has come to the defense of the new mother instead? We hope that the rage of the readers had been enough to convince the bride to just use the backup dress!
