World’s Most Insufferable Bride Asks Bridesmaids To Pay For Her $7,000 Dress
Generally speaking, us dudes are easy when it comes to weddings. All we need is some bomb ass food, a solid DJ/band, and an open bar. Oh ya, and a bride. If all those requirements are met, all the rest is just value added. Sure, we’d like silverware to eat the filet, but the world will keep spinning if we’re forced to roll up our sleeves and eat it caveman style.
Generally speaking, girls have a different wedding mindset, which is why the term ‘Bridezilla’ is so widely known and felt. Bridezillas stress about every last detail, most of which the attendees will be too drunk to recognize, never mind appreciate. Bridezillas are insufferable.
But there’s a difference between making sure the napkins match the floral arrangements and asking your bridesmaids to donate a vital organ for your wedding. And according to a high school teacher named Hayley, that’s exactly kinda what her friend Caroline asked for.
According to the New York Post, Caroline had bombarded the seven bridesmaids with countless emails asking for their input on everything from dress colors, to makeup, to buttonholes for the groomsmen.
But that’s just the beginning, Caroline then sent Hayley an email asking to make her a detailed Excel spreadsheet, due the same day. It read:
“I really want to get a wriggle on with this and need the contact details, price brackets, flavors and an idea of how prestigious the vendor is — in a table would be great. Excel is probably best please. Thanks!”
Hayley claims she begrudgingly produced the spreadsheet but sent it a couple days later. She was then hit with this email.
“Would’ve been really helpful to have it yesterday when specified, but I appreciate it.”
Things were just getting heated up.
A few days later, Hayley opened up her computer to find a new email titled “bridesmaid dress contribution.” The bride had found her dream dress, costing $7,890 and doubling her original budget. The email started off with “totally fine if you can’t” before asking each bridesmaid to “pitch in” at least $115 toward her “dream dress.”
Mind you, this was on top of what each bridesmaid was spending for their own dress, accommodations, bachelorette party, bridal shower, and a three-day spa retreat.
Hayley never coughed up the money and the sheer fact that she came public with her gripe is evidence that they are no longer bEsTiEs!
And I may be a bit too late, but a bit of advice to the groom, if you’re reading this.
