Bride's Ridiculous Wedding Day Rules For Guests Will Make You Say "WTF?"


Weddings are supposed to be joyous occasions that bring families and friends together, but they can also be very stressful for the couple.

Every bride and groom wants to throw a reception that their guests won't easily forget, so, of course, they would want every detail to be as close to perfect as possible.

However, sometimes the stress that comes with the planning can get out of hand and cause the bride or groom to act in ways that aren't their usual behavior.

At one point, we've all dealt with a bridezilla or heard stories about one, but I bet you have yet to come across a bride as ridiculous as the one who drafted a list of outrageous wedding day "rules and regulations" for her guests.

The list, which was sent to guests via email, starts off with reasonable demands like "please arrive 15-30 minutes early" and "do not wear white," but quickly takes a turn that ends up with the couple asking for a minimum dollar amount for gifts.

The email, which was supposedly sent out to all the guests by the wedding planner, was recently posted on Reddit and people on the internet have since made a mockery of the absurd rules.

Here are all the rules (note the typos):

  1. Please arrive 15-30 minutes early.
  2. Please DO NOT wear white, cream or ivory.
  3. Please do not wear anything other than a basic bob or ponytail.
  4. Please do not fave [sic] a full face of makeup.
  5. Do not record during the seramony [sic].
  6. Do not check in on FB until instructed.
  7. Use #[REDACTED] when posting all pictures.
  9. Everyone will toast with Rémy. No acceptance [sic].
  10. Lastly must come with gift 75$ or more or you want be admited [sic] in.

Reddit users offered up many different theories as to why the bride and the wedding planner would draft up such crazy rules. Some were convinced the wedding planner is just an "overinflated-head friend of the couple asked to coordinate," and others just couldn't get past the $75 minimum, the ban on a full face of makeup, and of course, the spelling errors.

"I think even if I had planned on bringing a gift more than $75 worth, I would change my mind seeing that list," commented QuietRico.

"I'm betting the bride herself wrote this and had someone send it out for her," wrote Bored_Ultimatum.

"Yeah I'm finding it hard to believe that a wedding planner doesn't spell that word correctly.... If the bride is requesting 75$ or more gifts she's probably too shallow to hire a planner and is posing as one to sound official and blame someone else for being b***hy," mr---jones chimed.

After this email was sent, I'd be surprised that any guest would still want to attend this wedding. As one Reddit user ASomewhatAmbiguous accurately put it: "What an excellent list of reasons to not go."

This is just the second time in a few weeks that a bridezilla's demands have gone viral. Not too long ago, a story circulating the internet revealed that a woman canceled her wedding after guests refused to pay $1,500 each to help her pay for the destination nuptials.
