You’ve probably met a bridezilla. Heck, you may have even been a bridezilla (whistles innocently). You probably never came close to this bride, though.
Reddit user laika_cat posted this email she received from a wedding coordinator. While a typical bridezilla may have slide presentations for her bridesmaids and endless to-do lists, this list reaches a new level of insanity.
For starters, it details “rules and regulations” for the wedding day. Who has rules and regulations for their wedding day?
The list starts innocently enough: “Please arrive 15-30 minutes early.”
Then the all-caps start to kick in: “Please DO NOT wear white, cream or ivory.” Okay, fair enough.
“Please do not wear anything other than a basic bob or ponytail.” So, no mullet then. Bummer.
Then, “DO NOT TALK TO THE BRIDE AT ALL.” Why are we yelling? Why would you host a social event if you don’t want anyone to talk to you?
And, for the icing on the proverbial wedding cake: “Lastly must come with gift 75$ or more or you want be admitted in.”
Naturally, Redditors had a lot to say.
Planning a wedding is stressful. It’s a huge, emotional event. Going a bit bridezilla is understandable.
But demanding expensive gifts from your guests, who may be spending hundreds to get to your wedding in the first place? That’s not so understandable. After all, a wedding is supposed to be a celebration filled with love and friendship. It’s not a spreadsheet, and your guests don’t “owe” you anything.
If you’re a bride-to-be, take a deep breath and remember to enjoy your big day. And if you’re a friend or relative of a bridezilla, keep in mind that it could always be worse.
