20 Bridezilla Stories That'll Make You Rethink Marriage

Ever been in a wedding party? Then you've learned the one essential truth about a bride's big day: it can turn a normally sweet and loving lady into a total nightmare. Nothing is worse than the wrath of a Bridezilla! Some women might manage to maintain their cool, but for every levelheaded wife-to-be, there are ten brides who went crazy before their big day. Are these girls just secret monsters, or is there something about a diamond ring that turns these ladies into the worst versions of of themselves? 

Bridezilla attacks come in all forms: text message, email, phone, and worst of all, in person (sometimes as they are literally ripping out your hair). Our list is filled with "okay, maybe that isn't so bad" to "OMG this friendship is over forever!" 

Here are some crazy bride stories about what happens when a beautiful girl takes the trip towards happily ever after. Here's what happens when you fall in love and hit every meanstick and b*tch branch on the way down. This list of the worst Bridezilla stories even includes a wicked stepmother!

A warning to potential Bridezillas: your friends want to celebrate with you, not pay for you. So if you want a wedding day that pulls out all the stops, pull out your own wallet and don't demand (or expect) that your guests are gonna foot the bill. Go ahead and color coordinate, but don’t expect guests to stick your chosen list of "color combinations and preferred fabrics." While you should enjoy pre-wedded bliss, remember that you'll still want some friends after your big day.

So choose a great venue, make sure everyone has enough to drink, pick some good music, and then chill the EFF out. Take a look at our list of wedding horror stories to learn how not to act, and then let us know which of these are the worst Bridezillas ever.

    This bride demanded that her bridesmaid-- who wasn't even one of her best friends-- to wipe her butt after she went to the bathroom. When the bridesmaid understandably refused, the bride slapped her in the face and told her their friendship was over. When she tried to rekindle the relationship years later, the bridesmaid wasn't interested.
