Wedding staffers of Reddit tell all about the worst bridezillas ever.
Weddings are (we hope) joyous occasions where two people who are in love finally make it official and become family. The elegant ceremonies last just a few hours, but the couple wants every detail to be absolutely perfect so that friends and family will be impressed. Hiring a great wedding planner and getting all the right staff can ensure that your big day will go smoothly and everything will happen on schedule.
But some brides and grooms can’t relinquish control of their event and become obnoxious to deal with: they stress and meltdown to the extent that the ceremony ruins the very relationship its trying to celebrate. The wedding staffers of Reddit have seen it all from volcanic, bridal eruptions to meddling mother-in-laws. Here are their stories.
The wedding staffers of Reddit tell all about their bad brides.
But I Love You!
“I’m not a wedding planner, but my friend is the wedding planner I’m telling this story about.
He is a good looking, straight male that has an amazing eye for design and detail. He can do everything from wedding dress design and execution, flowers, you name it. He had a bride who called him up a few days before her wedding and told him she couldn’t go through with the wedding because she was in love with someone else. The conversation went something like this:
Bride: “I can’t marry him, I just don’t love him anymore, I think I’m in love with someone else!”
Him: “What do you mean you’re in love with someone else!? Your wedding is in 5 days!”
Bride: “Well…. I’m in love with you. You just GET me! I’ve never met anyone else like you!”
Him: “…Do you know how much your parents are paying me to get you?!”
She ended up getting married 5 days later and it was never mentioned again.”
Cold feet or true love?
“My worst bride was an Ivy League educated shrink. She tried to play head games with absolutely everyone involved in the planning of the wedding. Frequently had fits. She and I butted heads because she wanted a carpet running straight from the bottom of the stairs to the doors of the chapel. I told her it wasn’t possible (they didn’t line up). She kept on asking me if I was sure, even after I showed her exactly what I meant. She narrowed her eyes and told me she thought I had a problem with the truth.
She was very controlling with the groom as well. I remember their names and looked them up on Facebook a while back. They’re divorced and he appears to be happily remarried.”
