There are a lot of examples of bridezillas out there that serve as a warning for what NOT to do during your wedding. And yet, they keep popping up and exposing themselves as monsters after receiving an engagement ring. No one ever learns!
This example of a bride gone wild posted by u/junebugg85 on r/ChoosingBeggars is like every horrible cliché of an evil bride all in one. Maybe she has read other bridezilla stories, but thought they were a handbook.
The post is titled, “Reddit I’ve officially dropped out of the bridal party. I’m a size 12 with no plans on dropping to a size 8 by December.”
Yes, body size comes into it. The post shows long texts to the bridal party from the bride, and it just gets worse and worse as you read.
“Welcome to my bridal part, I’m so excited to marry the man of my dreams,” she writes. “As you know this is going to be a very different wedding. We are hoping to do it outside and understand December is generally a cold month. But in Oklahoma it’s usually Sunny and 70.”
Well, that’s the first big lie. But the most offensive stuff is still to come.
“Just a few things to ask,” she continues. “I hand picked all the dresses and bridesmaid that will be there and they will asl be a size 8. So if you’re not a size 8 I recommend hitting the gym (crazy eye emojis). No offense to anyone but I have had this planned since I was in diapers and want it perfect. You nails need to be cut short and uncolored. Hair needs to be shoulder length and straighten so if your hair is short get extensions. No fake tans.”
Since the original poster on r/ChoosingBeggars claims to be size 12, this seems like an unbelievably rude and fatphobic thing to say to a “friend.” And there’s more! The bride went on to remind her bridesmaids to Venmo their $500 “donation” for the bride’s honeymoon in Hawaii. Classic. The rudes ones always want the most money.
The post blew up, and it ended up on other social media platforms where the bride saw it. The OP left this comment update:
So I just got a call from bridezilla (that’s what everyone is calling her on this post and it has a nice ring to it) and seen this post on Facebook and knows it was me cause of my post history and I’m officially kicked out of the wedding and she has blocked me on all social media.
My cousin has as well but I’m almost positive it’s because she made him do it. I was told to take this down. She said she’s not a racist and not as mean as I’m making her out to be. Her mother then called me and said some very mean things to me and talking about suing me and calling the cops if I don’t take this down.
I’m nervous that I might have crossed the line when I posted it. I just thought it was so absurd and ridiculous to be so demanding and never wanted to hurt my cousin and really sad that I might never get to talk to him again. If your reading this cuz I’m so sorry I love you so much and know your going through alot but this girl is making you cut out family and friends and I don’t want to see you get hurt.
If you did block me then I understand and will respect your decision but if she made you please remember I do love you and care about you. And hope we can talk again soon.
A lot of the comments seem to be deleted, but the racist line seems to refer to a deleted comment where the OP said the reason the bride wasn’t having her best friend be made of honor is that she’s Native American and “too dark.”
So if you have any sympathy for this private text being exposed…don’t. That’s how she treats her best friend, this is probably the least of the horrible texts she’s sent!
