Fair enough, weddings can be stressful.

There’s a lot of pressure that goes into planning, and trying to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch.

One bride has been accused of turning into a ‘bridezilla’ though, thanks to her interesting list of demands for her bridesmaids.

It all became too much for one bridesmaid, who had enough and quit her role.


The last straw came when the bride asked her to drop two dress sizes by going to the gym.

To add insult to injury, she then insisted that her bridesmaids have to pay £350 each to be part of the big day.

The determined bride sent a lengthy text message detailing her expectations.

Some of the most jaw-dropping parts include the bride saying she had already picked the bridesmaids dresses and they would be a size eight. Therefore, anyone larger than that size needed to go to the gym to fit into the dress.

She also requested a ‘donation’ of £353 ($500) to her honeymoon fund.

Love short hair? Tough, to be bridesmaid, anyone with short hair should get extensions.

Text Message

The message reads: “Welcome to my bridal party, I’m so excited to marry the man of my dreams.

“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′.

“Just a few things to ask. I had picked all the dresses and bridesmaid that will be there and they will all be a size eight, so if you’re not a size eight I recommend hitting the gym.

“No offence 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 uncoloured.

“Hair needs to be shoulder length and straightened so if your hair is short get extensions.

“No fake tans.

“As you may notice my bestie isn’t the maid of honour and is just going to be a guest. If you don’t know why just ask, we have an understanding.

“We also want no kids at the ceremony. Except my flower girl, but she will only be present to throw flowers then her parents are taking her home.

“I’m sorry if this seems a lot of demands but this is my special day and just want it like I always pictured.

“Please be respectful and we will have an awesome time.

“One last thing, I’ll be sending my Venmo and cash app to the ones who haven’t paid the $500 donation towards honeymoon in Hawaii.

“Love you guys can’t wait to be a wifey.”

Social Media

The annoyed friend posted the message on Reddit, titled: ‘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’.

One commenter said: “Ah I too love it when I get invoices and money requests for donations.”

Someone else added: “Can she just get a bunch of mannequins from the mall as bridesmaids instead? That’s basically what she’s demanding they act as.”

Another wrote: “I really hope she gets a well-deserved reality check and there’s only four people at her wedding.”

Do you agree with the bride?
