Attack Of The Bridezilla!
WOW. I have heard of selfish, self-centered people but DEAR GOD!!!!!
This delightful "Bride" decided to set down some rules for her "friends"...below is just an excerpt of the lovely, informative letter she sent her lucky bridal party...
"Our wedding party is really the most important people at the wedding besides my self and Jake so we want every single one of our bridesmaid and grooms at our parties, I have 10 not 8 where two couldn’t make it so if you already know you cant make one of the parties then we have to find someone else, not to be harsh in the slightest it would sadden me and of course you’ll still be invited to our wedding, engagement ect. But it’s different if your not in the wedding party and couldn’t make it. We’ll give everyone well advance dates for the parties and it will always fall on a weekend. The wedding as I stated will be in Vail the engagement party will either be in NY or CT and the bachelorette party will be in Vegas, cliche yeaa but I’ve never been.
A few girls live out of town so if there is going to be a problem with coming to either one then I need to know now because after this week I don’t want to be surprised. I would like everyone to send me any dates they are going away or planning to go away after February so if your going away in January I don’t care. I want any dates from February to the day of our wedding in August, that way we know not to plan something when your away. But after this week the dates are set in stone. Also if money is tight and you cant afford to contribute to say the bachelorette party or wont be able to afford a dress etc then L— and Myself don’t have time to deal with that, I’m sorry. This includes flights as well, everyone knows the states where the parties are going to be held so if you wont be able to afford a flight then that means you cant make a party which ultimately means I cant have you as a bridesmaid. Obviously we’ll get the best deals and were not gonna books flights for $1000 and shit that’s why were doing this in advance, that goes for bridesmaids dresses as well everything will be affordable but if you think by affordable its going to be a $25 forever 21 dress then your going to the wrong wedding.
How delightful. I'm sure she'll have the "Epic wedding" of her dreams. I'm sorry, I KNOW that when a woman gets married it's harried, stressful and ALOT OF WORK. But weddings are a rite of passage. With friends celebrating this new time in your life. FRIENDS...you know, the people who have been there for you through thick and thin...good times and bad. But apparently, if these friends are having a rough time between the DESIGNATED months of January-August and can't make 1 of FOUR DIFFERENT PARTIES in 3 DIFFERENT STATES then their presence is no longer needed.
Is this the Kardashianization of wedding ettiquette?? (yes, I just made that up, and proud of it...) Where the ceremony and IMAGE of the big event is actually more important than the people involved? God forbid you pick up the wrong fork while eating the 10 course dinner...security might escort you out.
And what about the poor groom? Well, hopefully he knows what he's getting into. Or if he's lucky, the marriage will last as long as the Kardashian disaster.
Ah, to be young and in love.
