    She Wouldn't Let Her Maid Of Honor Take Her Pain Medication

    From Redditor u/Manateecups:

    My bridezilla friend told me I wasn't allowed to take pain medication (for my lupus) at her wedding. She was afraid I'd be "too out of it" to perform my MOH duties. From 9 am to 7 pm is a long time to be on your feet without a break and without pain meds. I sent them off to their honeymoon and drove them eight hours home in misery.

    She Wanted All Her Bridesmaids To Gain Weight

    From Redditor u/Gday_Slutdog:

    My sister-in-law asked her bridesmaids (me included) to gain 10-20 pounds to make her look better in comparison. I just can't understand that.

    She Didn't Want Anyone Born "Out Of Wedlock" At Her Wedding

    From Redditor u/soundlife:

    My best friend's coworker is getting married later this year, and oh, man, this girl's got some problems. She told my friend last week that she doesn't want anyone at her wedding who was born out of wedlock. This includes my friend, who is the daughter of a teen mom.

    She Forced Her Bridesmaids To Sign Contracts

    From Redditor u/Gambler450:

    A bridesmaid contract. I said "NOPE" and got out of being in the wedding party and had a great time at the wedding, worry-free.

    It was basically an outline saying when/where/who/how I'd do things leading up to the date. Lots of unnecessary things, in my opinion. And if you "broke" the contract, you'd be dropped from the wedding, even if you had already purchased the dress.

    I feel, if you can't trust your MOA or bridesmaids to do the normal assistance with the big day and a contract needs to be made up, they really shouldn't be in the wedding.

    She Tried To Control When Her Wedding Guests Could Eat And Sleep

    From Redditor u/throwawayawayawayabc:

    The Bridezilla wanted to tell me when I could sleep, where I could eat, and what I could or couldn't do with my own funds on a destination wedding and I wasn't even in the wedding party.

    I typed it all out and decided that it wasn't worth going over all of it, but seriously, that bridezilla tried to tell me that I had to be at the formal dinner on the first night of the cruise after I had been up for over 24 hours getting everything together, flying, and finally getting to the ship. I ended up passing out in my room and got yelled at in front of the rest of her guests the next morning at breakfast.

    Three years into the marriage, she admitted that she married him for his money, cheated on him, and they divorced.

    She Expected All Her Bridesmaids To Not Eat Anything Before The Wedding 

    From Redditor u/idiosyncrassy:

    The bride expected all her bridesmaids to abstain from eating, night-before-surgery-style, until after the wedding was over so there were no unsavory stomach bulges.
