The Guests Decided Not To Go To Her Wedding After The Bride Sent Out The Dress Code
This story originally appeared at American Web Media.
Brides – and for that matter, bridesmaids, groom, and guests — aren’t one-size-fits-all. Age, size, and weight naturally varies – so much so that wedding dresses aren’t sold off the rack but tailored to custom sizes. So it seemed very odd — and distasteful – when a demanding bride-to-be asked, in a post that was later uploaded to Reddit, that her wedding guests adjust their attire based on their size to attend her special day.
Women who weighed more or less than 160 pounds were asked to dress differently, while men over 200 pounds were asked to don a specific attire, under the guise of creating an “incredible visual effect.”
“Hey everyone! Who’s ready for Hawaii 2019?” the bride wrote to her guests 1.5 years in advance of the big event. “In anticipation of the wedding, and believe me, I know it’s a long way away, but. . .
“I would still like to announce the dress code. I am giving you a long notice of a year and a half so that you will have time to find and pick out something nice. The dress code is very specific because it will be used to create an incredible visual effect. If done right, it will make our synchronized dancing along the (beach in Hawaii) really pop.”
Then this bride – or bridezilla – goes on to explain that women between 100 and 160 pounds should dress in a green velvet sweater, orange suede trousers, red Louboutin heels, and a Burberry scarf.
Meanwhile, men less than 200 pounds should don a Purple fuzzy jacket-soda hat, glow sticks, and white trainers. Meanwhile, all of the couple’s “fat” female guests — anyone over 160 pounds — should blend into the background with all black sweater and pants of any material, as well as black heels. Men over 200 pounds must dress in camouflage with black sneakers, while children should dress in “RED from head to toe. Remember the kids will form the shape of a heart, it needs to be a true red, not blood orange or some bull****!”
The bride blithely goes on to demand that adults should happily invest $1,000 into their wedding wardrobes, on top of the airfare required to attend a destination wedding in Hawaii, wedding gifts, and the expense of outfitting their children entirely in red. It also seems unlikely that these guests would ever find occasion to wear these outfits again.
“Please, if you look like trash, so will we,” she wrote. “All jokes aside, we want you to invest in an outfit valued at least $1,000. This includes jewelry [sic] accessories, makeup, and hair. Remember ladies and gents, this wedding is 24k themed for a reason. You have a year and a half to get working. No excuses! Mwah.”
At least one of the guests, offended by the bride’s outrageous wardrobe demands, posted her Facebook posting to Reddit, where it quickly went viral – leading an outraged Bridezilla to demand that all of her guests, despite everything else they’ve been asked to buy, also submit to a polygraph test. We’ll be truly amazed if anyone still bothers to show up for her big day.
