The unnamed user took to Reddit to rant about the ‘expensive’ costs of being in the bridal party
‘Here to share the story of a wedding I’m going to be in’ she said.
She added: ‘I am a bridesmaid for a close friend of mine. She is definitely a good person, but I am now seeing a different side of her.
Who do YOU think is right?

‘She definitely put pressure on her fiancé to propose when he was still getting his bachelors. It got close to ultimatum level, but he did once he graduated.
‘Bride is religious, and is doing things somewhat traditional and is waiting to live together until they are married. Her parents are wealthy as well, which is also what is ticking me off for this wedding.’
The friend went on to note that if she had known she was ‘expected to pay’ for everything, she would have ‘declined being a bridesmaid.’
‘However, the bride was not transparent about the cost,’ she said.
The pal revealed that she had to pay $1,000 for the bachelorette party, but accepted it.
However, she later found out she also needed to pay for catering the bride’s bridal shower as well as buy her a gift.
People on the social media platform rushed to her defense and slammed the bride-to-be for her behavior
‘For the wedding day itself she dropped the bomb today that she wants a professional makeup artist and hair stylist to do our makeup the day of,’ she said, adding that it would be $300.
‘I am at my limit for spending and she said if I do my own makeup I have to practice and send a picture for approval.
‘The hair style she wants is to all have will not work on my my hair, it’s too short. I sent her a picture of how my hair isn’t long enough with my face framing- and asked if I can do a low bun with pieces down in the front.
‘She replied “I will see if anyone else is okay with that because it will throw off the uniform look”. And we are not even wearing the same dress.’
She also revealed that she wasn’t allowed to bring a plus one and it was ‘BYOB.’
‘Had I known she as going to be a mild bridezilla – I would have politely declined and happily attended as a guest,’ she said before adding that if she had to pay for everything that it would cost her $2,000 and said she was considering dropping out.
People on the social media platform rushed to her defense and slammed the bride-to-be for her behavior.
One person wrote: ‘Back out. If you paid for the dress, see if you can return it. Be honest and tell the bride why. Keep in mind that they will probably want the bridal party to set up, serve and clean up. Just don’t. You will hate yourself later.’
Another user commented: ‘Unless you are desperate for friendship I think you need to delete this woman’s number and forget she exists.’
‘Back out of the wedding, tell bride you simply cannot afford it but you’ll be happy to come as a guest. She’ll probably tell you no and then you’ll have the day free to do anything you want,’ commented someone else.
Many people said that she should drop out of the wedding and stop being her friend
Someone else said: ‘I can tell that you care about preserving this friendship and you don’t want to make a scene. I think you should just be nice and apologetic and tell your friend that you’re sorry but with the added expenses you just can’t afford it anymore and would love to come support her as a regular guest.
‘Tell her ASAP so she has time to adjust her plans accordingly. If she gets mad at that point, you’ve done your very best to be agreeable and maybe it’s not a friendship worth keeping.’
‘I don’t call that mild bridezilla – I call it full on. I would never agree to a $1,000 bachelorette, nor would I pay for catering for a bridal shower nor would I pay so much for makeup and hair, and no plus ones for the bridal party – the audacity!’ commented one user.
‘You are not required to pay for anything outside of basic wedding day stuff, you do not have to pay towards catering for her shower. Brides like this are absolutely ridiculous, I would have never asked that of my party, ever.
‘Anything a couple chooses to have (bachelor party, showers, etc.) outside of the wedding and reception should be on them because they’re extras unless someone offers. Your bridal party is not meant to be a financial buffer so you can be a princess for six months,’ someone else added.
Another user wrote: $2,000! To be a bridesmaid? I’d rather spend that money on a vacation for myself. ‘
