Watch Out for Bridezilla!


As long as we're on the subject of engagements/weddings today...

With all the bridezilla stories we hear it’s a wonder anyone would ever agree to be a bridesmaid. Brides expect a lot from their wedding party, but one bride has taken things to a bit extreme.

A bride recently shared a contract online that she demanded her 10 bridesmaids sign. The contract included 37 “ridiculous” rules she expected her bridal party to stick to, and we’re surprised anyone would walk down the aisle for her.

The bride explained that she decided to come up with the contract after seeing “lot of posts about issues with bridesmaids” from other newlyweds online, adding, “it explained my expectations from beginning to end.” Among the many rules include ones involving not being able to “outdo the bride in any way,” which includes a ban on any hair color other than black or brown, as well as a ban on colored lipstick, colored contact lenses, and false eyelashes. 

Other outrageous rules include (click here for the complete list):

  • “I will not grow sensitive and angry with the bride because I understand that she has a bossy attitude.”
  • “I will agree to save at least $50 a month for expenses for the next 14 months.”
  • “I will not gain more than 3kg between now and the wedding.”
  • “I will not intentionally fall pregnant before the wedding. (Pregnancy under five months will not be excused from attending wedding events).”
  • “I will not grow sensitive and angry with the bride because I understand that she has a bossy attitude.”
  • “I will not make any advances towards males in the wedding party.”
  • “I will not date anyone in the wedding party that I wasn't dating before I signed this contract.”

Not surprisingly, the bride had a hard time getting friends to agree to all the rules. She had originally hoped to have 10 bridesmaids, but only six were willing to sign the contract.

  • And as you can imagine, folks on social media were shocked by this entitled bridezilla.
    • “I would screw this contract up and throw it in the bride's face,” one wrote. “What an idiot.”
    • Another added, “Am I reading this right? Just ridiculous. And I can't believe six people signed it.”
