We’ve all known a Bridezilla or two but wait until you read this bride’s letter to her bridesmaids! I understand planning a wedding is stressful and every bride wants the people in her wedding to be there for everything but what this chick wrote to her bridesmaids is completely out of control!
She says her wedding will be “epic” and that if anyone can’t respond to her emails, calls, or texts in a timely manner they need not be in her wedding. She goes on and on about people not being able to afford dresses, plane tickets, or contributions to the bachelorette party. She expects everyone to be able to show up for EVERYTHING involving her wedding… and if not, well you’re just not worthy of the honor.

Have you ever dealt with a Bridezilla? I dropped out of a friend’s wedding once because of her demands… Needless to say we are not friends anymore, but she turned into such a nasty beast and made me feel so bad about having to work and not making it to BOTH of her showers so I said I’m out. I drove over 3 hours to her bridal shower and took a weekend off to be there. A few months later I took a night off from work and drove 2 hours to go to her bachelorette party. I was supposed to spend the night at her place since I lived so far away… She didn’t feel well and went home less than an hour after I got there and then never answered the phone later that night so I could get her new address to sleep over… I drove 2 hours home in the middle of the night and when I was upset with her the next day because she didn’t answer the phone, she didn’t think she owed me an apology bc she had been sick and fell asleep. Then she expected me to take another weekend off to be at her other bridal shower with her fiance’s family… But she said she didn’t expect another gift. Gee, isn’t that nice. I couldn’t take the guilt trips and her snotty attitude so we got into a huge fight and I said I’m not doing it!
Every once in a while I miss her friendship but I was broke at the time, took time off of work to be there for things, and got crapped all over because it wasn’t enough.
There’s a happy medium when it comes to being in a wedding… Bridesmaids need to be honest about their ability to commit from day one, if you can’t afford it or can’t be there for the bride then say no… But brides also have to be understanding of the people they have in their wedding and realize that everyone else’s life does not revolve around them. This from a girl who has never been a bride
