Weddings are supposed to be fun, joyous occasions, especially for the people involved in them. I’ve never had the privilege of being a bridesmaid, but I think it would be fun to help the bride prep for her big day (even if it means buying an ugly dress). But we’ve all heard stories of the infamous “bridezillas:” women who run wedding plans with an iron, menacing fist. While it’s understandable that a woman would be stressed about her wedding, these brides go overboard…like the one who wrote this crazy email to her bridesmaids:
A few girls live out of town so if there is going to be a problem with coming to either one then I need to know now because after this week I don’t want to be surprised. I would like everyone to send me any dates they are going away or planning to go away after February so if your going away in January I don’t care. I want any dates from February to the day of our wedding in August, that way we know not to plan something when your away. But after this week the dates are set in stone. Also if money is tight and you cant afford to contribute to say the bachelorette party or wont be able to afford a dress etc then L— and Myself don’t have time to deal with that, I’m sorry. This includes flights as well, everyone knows the states where the parties are going to be held so if you wont be able to afford a flight then that means you cant make a party which ultimately means I cant have you as a bridesmaid. Obviously we’ll get the best deals and were not gonna books flights for $1000 and shit that’s why were doing this in advance, that goes for bridesmaids dresses as well everything will be affordable but if you think by affordable its going to be a $25 forever 21 dress then your going to the wrong wedding.
And that’s not all, folks: you can read the letter in its entirety over at Gawker. I think I would just skip out on this wedding and use the money I saved to…hm, maybe buy a bunch of $25 dresses.
What do you think of this letter? Have you been to any disaster weddings?
