Bridesmaid “Ground Rules” Letter Leaked (Bridezilla-Alert!)
To all bridesmaids out there, know your rights! An email leaked by Gawker from a bride-to-be detailed her outlandish expectations of her bridesmaids during the months leading up to her August 13 wedding in Vail, Colorado. Her email listed her “ground rules” to consider before accepting the “honor” of being in the wedding party.
After reading some of her expectations, below, we couldn’t help but wonder who is going to agree to be this woman’s bridesmaid, let alone, friend.
Your Life Is No Longer Your Own
“I would like everyone to send me any dates they are going away or planning to go away… from February to the day of our wedding in August, that way we know not to plan something when your away.”
Money Can’t Be an Issue
“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.”
Dress to Impress ($$$)
“…if you think by affordable its going to be a $25 forever 21 dress then your going to the wrong wedding.”
Be Chained to Your Phone
“I’m not going to harass you with wedding stuff every hour of everyday but if its something important and it takes you a week even 2-3 days to get back to me seeeee ya!”
It’s All or Nothing
“If you don’t think you’ll be able to attend one party but can make the rest of them I’m sorry but I’ll have to take you out as a bridesmaid and put you as a guest.”
And if you’re not sold yet that this will be the most fun wedding you could ever have the honor of attending, then just listen to the bride’s closing statement: “This is really going to be the most epic wedding ever so I hope you girls can share this special day with us!”
Our advice: Pass!
