How To Avoid Fighting With Your Bridesmaids

LizFields

While planning your wedding is a huge deal and your bridesmaids are supposed to help you make the process a whole lot easier, it’s still important to treat them with respect. No one likes dealing with a bridezilla, especially the bridesmaids because they’ll be around her the most throughout the planning process. So, as the bride – what are some guaranteed ways to not push your bridesmaid’s buttons? Continue reading

The Craziest Bridesmaid’s Rules Written By A Bride

Bridal Gown

This is what Bridezilla looks like in full-force.

   E! Online recently leaked an amazing email from Gawker which is the go-to online source for hilarious, unbelievably leaked emails via the recipient. Now, this amazing forum recently received an email from an anonymous bridesmaid that was sent to her from the bride-to-be and it includes some of the most ridiculous rules ever placed upon a bridal party. They’re too good to make up – here is the breakdown of the email…

   Ok, the email begins with a warm greeting from the bride who also refers to herself as “Queen Bee,” where she writes, “Welcome to my bridal party, it is officially six months until my wedding day,” then things get a little more serious when she throws in the line, “I just wanted to go over some ground rules…”

Please NOTE: The names of the bridesmaid’s have been changed to protect any shred of dignity that this bridezilla leftover. Also, it is quoted from the email (hence first person).

Rule 1 

Weigh-ins will begin in three weeks. (Yep, that’s all she wrote.)

Rule 2

No one can be skinnier than the bride. That means Nicole and Ashley will be on a protein weight gainer diet until May. I will have the nutritionist call you to discuss diet plans.

Rule 3

I was thinking that we should start daily Google docs, where everyone can update in real time their daily calorie content… I thought the food calculator would be a great way for me to monitor everyone’s caloric intake. Thoughts? (Bridezilla, are they even allowed to have thoughts?)

Rule 4

If you plan on chopping off your locks, please submit your proposed new look prior to any actions, this applies to coloring as well. Failure to follow will result in bridal banishment.

   Now, obviously rule number four was the hardest to oblige due to the fact that Queen Bee sent her “bees,” a follow up email reading…

 

Good afternoon all my faithful bees. It brings me great sadness to write this e-mail, but it was brought to my attention that one of my chosen bees is defected. She is in violation of Rule No. 4, despite asking permission and having her request denied! The punishment is obviously bridal party banishment. However, after careful consideration, I have decided to re-instate her status on a provision basis. As long as her bangs grow out by [date two weeks before the wedding], she will be allowed to participate in our festivities. She has reassured me that she will be using horse shampoo for rapid hair growth until that point.

   As if this story could not get any better, one commenter on Gawker said that she knew the bride and announced to everyone that three of the bridesmaid’s no longer speak to the bride. Talk about some serious drama involving a bridezilla, the dress fitting for the remaining bridesmaids must have been full of excitement and joy. Oh, and for a piece of advice for all the future bride’s, do not ever allow yourself to become this girl.

Bridesmaids Funny Girl A Bridesmaid No More!

Celebrity WeddingEllie Kemper took on the role of playing the quirky, Pixar-obsessed, obsessive compulsive, bridesmaid in the popular, box-office hit, Bridesmaids. However, the roles have turned and Kemper has officially tied the knot with former writer for Conan O’Brian, Michael Koman. The funny girl, actress has a star studded wedding with some comedic relief from Bridesmaids co-star, Kristen Wiig, and The Office co-star, Mindy Kaling.

Celebrity WeddingAfter announcing her engagement in December, by no coincidence, on Conan, she has been doing several interviews on how she even surprised herself with being a bridezilla. Kemper explained, “I was always like, ‘I’m going to be the cool bride! I’m going to be laid back about everything!’ But it turns out I’m not.” The funny girl from The Office went onto explain that her fiance is getting the worst of the bridezilla lashing, “With Michael, my fiance, I’ve been like, ‘Why don’t you contribute?’ So, then he contributes an idea and I’m like, ‘That’s a terrible idea! Stop contributing!’”

Knowing the bride’s personality through interviews and even in her acting roles, this wedding must have really been a fun wedding to get the invite to. While Kemper’s acting career has driven her into the friend roles, her execution of the smaller parts is on point with the comedic relief.

She Borrowed Her Bridesmaids?

Bridesmaids On my way into work this morning, I was actually listening to the radio, which is rare. However, I heard a news story that actually caught my eye (or ear, rather), and on Miami’s hit radio stations, an interesting news report is hard to come by. Anyways, the DJ started talking about how he has noticed women putting “Want-Ads” online to fill up their bridal party.

I can understand this if you want a big wedding and need a few extra fillers, but one woman called in to explain her side of the story and why did she rent her bridesmaids? So, it would look like she had more attractive friends. Come on! As horrible as it sounds, there are many lonely brides out there that might not be able to find themselves some bridesmaids before the big day, but to totally knock your friends out just so these people can make your wedding photos look better? Now, either this bride thought her friends were not up to her standards, or this bride did not think things through and there is a chance these model bridesmaids outshined her.

Now, the radio hosts tried their best to reason with this bride and how she basically rented her bridesmaids, they just could not understand to her extent. The number one rule of a wedding is that no one outshines the bride, so why put beautiful people in beautiful suits and bridesmaid dresses next to you in the photos of your big life celebration? Whatever the case may be, one can always rely on the radio to entertain us daily and seriously put some of the new wedding trends into serious question.
