The craziest bridezilla stories ever

Wedding planning can be a high-stress environment for everyone involved, and we usually hear (or see) crazy things involving the bride.

Here are the best bridezilla stories courtesty of Reddit.

Get it on credit

“My college roommate asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. I agreed. Then the bridesmaid dress she picked out for me was $2400. I couldn’t afford it and gently told her so. I found a pattern for a similar dress and fabric that was the same color and type, so I asked her if it was okay if I made the similar dress, or perhaps we could go dress shopping together to find something in my budget? All of the bridesmaids were going to be wearing the same color, but she’d picked out different styles of dresses for each of us, so it wasn’t as if I would stick out like a sore thumb. She cussed me out, told me I was ruining her wedding, that her ‘vision’ required me to wear THAT dress, and can’t I just get a credit card to charge the dress on? When I told her no, she cut all contact with me, claiming that if I was a true friend I would make the finances work. She’s never spoken to me again. She’d been like a sister to me up until that point.”

Shots for (almost) everyone

“I had a friend that wanted a destination bachelorette party/weekend. I was interning at the time for minimum wage/part time so I was pretty broke. I saved and managed to make it work, but it was tight and I wasn’t going crazy with the drinks and shots and whatnot like everyone else was. She pulled me aside and almost kicked me out of the wedding because I wasn’t being ‘supportive’ enough.”

Bigger is better?

“My sister in law asked her bridesmaids (me included) to gain 5-10 kilos to make her look better in comparison. I just can’t understand that.”

No pain, no gain

“My bridezilla friend told me I wasn’t allowed to take pain medication (for my lupus) at her wedding. She was afraid I’d be ‘too out of it’ to perform my MOH duties.”

Our thoughts got our to them

“A friend was mad because a few days before her wedding there was a terrible flood in a South American country, which somehow ruined her chances of being able to get just the right colour flower for the centre pieces.”

Sweet stuff

“I used to work at a reception venue. One event really sticks out. Everything went well until the cake. The bride and groom go to feed each other; she does it very nicely, and then he smashes it into her face. The bride screams, starts bawling her eyes out and runs out of the hall. 15 or so minutes later, the father of the bride comes and asks the D.J. for the mic. He proceeds to thank everyone for coming and says that if they would like to take their gifts on the way out the couple has decided to break up. I’m sure there were issues leading up to the event, but the bride had told everyone (including the groom) that if he smashed the cake in her face, it was over. She wasn’t lying.”

Penguin suit with a difference

“A bride and groom came into the store to get tuxedos. She said ‘I need a penguin suit for my fiance.’ Now I didn’t give this too much thought, as that’s not a particularly uncommon phrase. But then she pulled out a picture of a penguin, and I had to match that. She made him get a tails jacket and black vest, spent over an hour figuring out what shoes looked like the most like flippers, and then made me special order a shade of orange bow tie that most closely matched the penguin’s little scruff thing. The seven shades of orange we had were not acceptable. She mentioned to me in our conversation that she made her boyfriend make a 300 dollar donation to the local zoo so that he could propose to her in the penguin tank. Lady was crazy.”
