It’s not hard to imagine brides getting a little crazy before their big day—but these women took it to the next level. From suggesting a bridesmaid lose weight by ordering a too-small dress to forcing the bridal party to foot the bill on over-the-top spa treatments, these bridezilla stories will shock (and appall) you.
No Vegas, no deal
Imagine being kicked out of a bridal party for not being able to afford a trip to Vegas? That is exactly what this bridezilla threatened to do when she told her bridal party: “If you can’t contribute to the bachelorette or won’t be able to afford a dress etc. then L-- and myself don’t have time to deal with that.”
We’ve rounded up some expert opinions: 15 signs your marriage is over.
No food for you
Have you ever been to a wedding that didn’t serve dinner? This particular bride thought that after a full day of wedding bliss, veggies and dip would be sufficient enough for her guests. When they started leaving, “she ran across the room in her dress and blocked the doors, saying how everyone was ruining her wedding and screaming "bride's day, bride's way!’”

Of all the bridezilla stories, this one is one of the worst: after suggesting that her bridal party send her a Google document outlining their caloric intake each day and demanding that they go on a water and rice cake diet to slim down right before the wedding, this bridezilla took mean to the next level when she told one of her bridesmaids to “wear a pashmina to cover her ‘fat arms.’”
One of the boys
While trying to make light of a stressful situation that included wearing a muff, this bridesmaid saw the backlash of a true bridezilla. “At one point we were getting ready for the ceremony and the bride said, ‘kittenhiccups, let me see your muff.’ I batted my eyelashes and joked, ‘I've waited so long to hear those words from you!’ The look she shot me could have killed a f------ moose. She told me if I was going to make lewd jokes, I should go hang out with the groomsmen.”
Whatever happened to getting married for love and not for the gifts? After receiving a gift basket with date-night snacks, this bride and groom were furious. Instead of accepting the gift graciously, they texted the gift-basket-givers, saying “I’m not sure if it’s the first wedding you have been to, but for your next wedding, people give envelopes. I lost out on $200 covering you and your date's plates…and got fluffy whip and sour patch kids in return.”

Is there anything worse than having a bridezilla sister? One of the worst bridezilla stories we heard: after kicking her sister out of the wedding for not being enthusiastic enough and for having a purple streak in her hair, this bridezilla went even further and got mad at her sister for coming out as bisexual. “She told me to stop talking about it because this is 'her year' and it's supposed to be all about her.”

Breaking the bank
After seeing how much effort her bridesmaids were putting into her wedding, this bride booked appointments for all of them at an upscale spa. “We bridesmaids had (perhaps naively) assumed that ‘doing something special’ for us meant that she was picking up the tab. Nope. Each of us had to drop a few hundred dollars on the day. I felt extremely awkward and incredibly broke.”
Weight loss plan
This particular bride thought it would be a good idea to give life advice to a bridesmaid in the form of a bridesmaid dress. “As we were looking for bridesmaid dresses, I explained that I'd need a certain size (plus, please!). When she picked them out, they didn't come in my size. When I confronted the bride about it, she said: 'Guess that's an incentive to lose weight!'"

Bridezillas are notorious for being compulsive about what they want and when they want it. This particular bride wanted her bridesmaid to reschedule her law exam and to fly in 14 months before the wedding to watch the bride try on wedding dresses. Even worse, when the bridesmaids didn’t reply to her right away “she sent us FedEx letters overnight with her requests instead."

Bills, bills, bills
After receiving a text from the bridezilla insinuating that she was still waiting for her monetary gift, this wedding guest explained to the bride that her monetary gift would not be substantial as she had just lost her job and still had tuition to pay. When the bride responded with a text saying “well it’s still something instead of coming for free, ya know?” the guest sent her a typed-out letter with a penny taped to the top of it, stating “Here is your card. Now I did not go to your wedding for free...I hope that this helps you with your ‘bills.’”
