A woman asked by her best friend to be a bridesmaid revealed that their 15-year friendship ended because of the bride’s high maintenance requirements.
The anonymous friend from the US went to reddit to explain how the bride to be requested takes them off for shopping at the weekend, expecting to pay $ 1, 500 (£ 1, 151) for the bachelor party – and even threatened to dismiss her from the wedding party.
And many were quick to go to the commentary section and begged the “self-absorbed” bride for her diva-like expectations.
‘Good that you say NO! Why would a bridesmaid buy a holiday and excursions / events for a bride? wrote one, while a second agreed: “When is it good for brides to expect this s *** from bridesmaids?”

“I don’t think all of these financial obligations are expected from groomsmen. This bride is crazy and seizes herself. “
The girlfriend admitted that she was “excited” to be first asked to be a bridesmaid, but it wasn’t long before the demands started and her feelings changed.
She further explained that the wedding took place for three years because the bride wanted to make sure she got ‘the best of everything’ – and then the couple ‘clashed’.
Building on the ridiculous expectations of her former boyfriend, she wrote: “She would ask entire weekend to buy bridesmaid clothes together.”
“I couldn’t do that because I had to work some weekends or because I couldn’t figure out how to get back to my hometown. When I made it, she looked at dresses in the $ 500 + (£ 383) range. I was very worried because I could not just drop that kind of money on the dress’.
Moreover, the annoyed woman further said that the expectant bride also wanted a bachelor party – and expected that she would take time off from work, pay for flights, pay for hotels and all her events. , costs around $ 1, 500 (£ 1, 151). “

And to add even more fuel to the fire, the bride expected ‘still wedding gifts from her bridesmaids’.
Many were quick to defend the friend and said that the money she was expected to spend was the same as their budget for the very big day.
“That’s insane. That’s my budget for my entire wedding, “one wrote, while a second one raged:” That’s seriously crazy. I understand that some people really want big weddings, but I really don’t understand how they can expect other people to pay a lot of money for them or be part of the wedding. ”
A third added: “Dear brides – it’s your responsibility to pay for dresses, hair, shoes, etc. You want your bridesmaids to wear if you have a certain vision that needs to be observed. It’s your wedding, not theirs, so pay! “
The bridesmaid admitted that she was beginning to fall “overwhelmed” and expressed her concern about “commitment and money expectations.”

“She couldn’t understand my budgeting,” the former friend explained. “She would call me to express her disappointment and almost complain about me.”
“I was in shock that I didn’t know what to say. Her last saying? Let’s see how this next bridesmaid dress will go shopping and I’ll let you know if I still want you in the party. “
The friend had had enough of her decision to send a text message to the future bride and told her that she refused to be judged before wiping her hands off both her and the “ridiculously high expectations for her marriage.”
In addition to the comments, a social media user wrote: “I am so happy that you withdraw before you spend that money on her.”
‘if they were really your friend, they would not essentially ask you to put yourself in debt for THEIR wedding. Good that you are rid of such a toxic person. “
In the meantime, another wrote: “That’s my income for the year in £ I’m glad you got out.” I feel sorry for the other girl and I dropped all that money. That sucks.
