This post is all about discovering some rather unusual bridezilla behaviours that some brides have. From the odd and unusual to the darn right scary ones, it seems some brides and indeed a few grooms do some of the strangest things on their wedding day. While most of these stories do have a happy ending you can’t help but wonder how the relationship survives…
Bad Hair Day Before Wedding
Story Info: One prospective bride-to-be isn’t just specifying what her bridesmaids will be wearing, she has also outlined how their hair is to be. So the bridesmaid who shared her story with me has short hair (which absolutely suits her) and is now having to grow it. The bride to be, did mention ‘extensions’ at one point – you know, super-duper expensive hair extensions plus the risks they pose to your own hair..?
Funny Bridesmaid Dress fail
Story Info: Check out this story of unreasonable demands. The bride to be insisted her slightly plumper bridesmaid lost weight in order to fit into the dresses she had already ordered in small sizes.
Story Info: Or what about the bride who had a thing about feet so forbade her bridesmaids to wear open-toed shoes, despite the fact that they were all wearing floor-length dresses (and thus their shoes were pretty much invisible).
Story Info: And back to hair again… Read all about the bride who wanted her bridesmaid to change her hair colour from brunette to blonde so that she matched the other bridesmaids. When the girl declined to do so, she found herself a bridesmaid no more.
Bridezilla Control Freak
Story Info: From the same website, here’s another story of control freakery gone mad. The bride insisted her bridesmaids all got the same shade of baby blue nail varnish. When one bridesmaid turned up sans nail varnish, the bride flipped and insisted the photographer took no pictures of the offending bridesmaid. Hmm!
Ugly Bridesmaids Dresses
Story Info: Here’s a goodie, a letter to the bridesmaids setting our her instructions which may or may not be genuine. But I particularly liked the hint about the bridesmaids not drinking a week before so they look in the photos which are aimed at one unfortunate in particular.
Wedding Cake Fail
Story Info: Most Bridezilla tales on the internet relate to brides and their bridesmaids. I did find one, however, where a bride threw the top layer of cake at her caterer. I can only assume she really didn’t like the cake. (There’s a lot to be said for making your own cake so that you can be sure you will like it.)
Ugly Wedding Dress
Story Info: One bridesmaid who got pregnant found herself replaced as a bridesmaid so that her baby bump didn’t ruin the pictures.
Bridesmaids Received Fedex Letters
Story Info: Another group of bridesmaids received FedEx letters if they did not respond to her phone calls or emails quickly enough.
Manicures and Pedicures
Story Info: My favourite story though was the Bridezilla who didn’t at first appear as a Bridezilla… Insisting that her bridesmaids receive ample reward for their efforts beforehand, she booked them into a posh spa and arranged for lots of nice treatments – manicures, pedicures etc. However, she didn’t pay for the spa day so the bridesmaids were left with a bill for several hundred each.
