We Don't Think Anyone Could Match THIS Bridezilla Story!
Ever dealt with a bridezilla? Even if you have, we doubt that it’ll match this story.
Teacher Hayley wrote a post on Mamamia revealing that she was “overjoyed” to be asked by her friend Caroline to be a bridesmaid for her wedding.
But that was until Caroline started to make a few demands, the most shocking of which was a request for her seven bridesmaids to help cover the cost of her wedding gown.
Oh, and did we mention that said dress cost $10,500 AUS (that’s just under €7,000)?
A couple of months later - after three consecutive weekends of searching for bridal and bridesmaid dresses (that ended up costing us all $550, mind you) - came the clincher.
Caroline had finally found a stunning satin Marchesa wedding dress that she looked perfect in. The only problem was it cost twice her dress budget - $10,500. After many "dooo itttt, you should totally splurge, you only get married once" reassurances for her many bridesmaids, she decided to purchase it.
"Thank the lord, now I can have my weekends back," I thought to myself, breathing a sigh of relief despite feeling a little guilty about it.
That night, my inbox pinged again with another of the group emails from Caroline that I'd started to dread. The subject line was "Bridesmaid dress contribution" and it made me break out into a cold sweat.
The latest bridal update was a long email outlining how she and Jase were hugely over their bridal budget now that she’d splurged on the dress. That it was "totally fine if you can’t" but she would really love if we could "pitch in" around $150 each towards her "dream dress". That it’d mean so very much to her and would mean that as she walked down the aisle, she’d be wearing something we’d all had a part in.
Yes, she was essentially asking her bridal party to chip in for her dress. As well as our own outfits, accommodation, the hen’s party, bridal shower and the three spa days she wanted us to plan prior to the wedding. My bank account was already taking a battering from the wedding and now this?
I nearly threw my phone across the room, such was the rage that consumed me. It’s been three days since she sent the email and three of the seven bridesmaids have replied saying they’d love to pitch in for her dress. Whether they genuinely wanted to or not, I just don’t know.
But I’m starting to think I might have to bail on this wedding, and friendship.
