‘Bridezilla’ is becoming a rather popular term these days. It’s an interesting way to give a woman a hard time when she goes overboard on the wedding planning and the demands she is making.
On occasion, however, we may hear about somebody who fits that description to the letter. There is no doubt that some women have a difficult time controlling themselves through the wedding planning process.
This bride is certainly not winning any points among her potential guests by initiating a special dress code. It was based, not on her color preference but on their weight. Brides everywhere are cringing over the possibilities.
The dress code was posted on Reddit last week and worldwide, people have begun to give their opinion on the bazaar requirements.
This is the post on Facebook that got it all started:
In case you are having a problem reading the post, here it is typed out.
Hey everyone! Who’s ready for Hawaii 2019? In anticipation of the wedding, and believe me, I know it’s a longg 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 [redacted] beach really pop.
SO, without further adoo [sic]…
WOMEN (100-160 LBS_
-GREEN Velvet Sweater
-ORANGE Suede Pants
-Loubotin [sic] heels (the famous RED heeled shoes. when we spin and lift our feet, the effect will amaze you)-Burberry Scarf
MEN (100-200 LBS)-PURPLE Fuzzy Jacket-Soda Hat
-All White Trainers
-Plain Glow Sticks
WOMEN (160 LBS+)
-all BLACK sweater and pants. Any material.
MEN (200 LBS+)-all CAMOFLAGE [sic]
-RED from head to toe. Remember the kids will form the shape of a heart, it needs to be tru red not blood orange or some bull—-!
Additionally, we will require that you wear formal attire after the dancing has ended. Please bring a change of clothing. Remember, the venue is extremely upscale, and we want to be looking out absolute BEST ladies and gents.
Please, if you look like trash, so will we.
All jokes aside, we want you to invest in an outfit valued at at least $1,000. This includes jewlery [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”
Everybody who saw this was going crazy over the unusual demands for the dress code.
It was not only those who were upset about just being separated by weight but it was also the $1000 minimum price that any guest would have to spend on their outfits.
Some of us may not spend that money on our entire wardrobe! In addition, some people were wondering why she was requiring fuzzy purple jackets, glue sticks and soda hats.
What is perhaps most interesting is that the woman who was responsible for the original post noticed how much people had to say about her wedding plans. She jumped in and got the final word.
In response to an online critic, the blushing bride shared plans that were updated for the wedding day. This also included plans that would track down the ‘snitch’ who blew the whistle online.
If you couldn’t read it in the image, here it is typed out for your perusal:
A VERY important Update. Please Read.
It has come to my attention that someone went all the way down in this groups [sic] creation to screenshot the dress code requirements. The screenshot was taken wildly out of context and has gone semi viral on Facebook and Reddit.
I have seen MY POST twice on my regular Facebook account. I could not be more crushed, betrayed, or saddened. I trust each and every one of you so intimately. Knowing someone went behind my back and made fun of me is one of the worst feelings everywhere.
And boy, will you be paying.
Therefore, I am announcing one of the most unique parties you will ever be invited to in your life (besides my actual wedding).
In honor of the snitch who sold me out, I will be hosting the first every Polygraph Party at my house, this Saturday at 8:00 P.M. Bring you inner Sherlock Holmes because we will be hunting out the snitch who put me on blast.
You think I’m kidding? I’m not.
We just bought a real polygraph test for $99 on Amazon. After the testing is over and we find the rat who did this, we will all celebrate with drinks and appetizers.
If you can’t make it to the Polygraph Party, you will be presumed guilty unless you can provide a valid excuse.
We can make this party a unique and good one that will be told for years to come. I promise, as long as you’re innocent, you have nothing to worry about.
I highly suggest whoever did this just tell me. I won’t retaliate, I will simply cut all ties and communication with you (and talk —- about you for a long, long time).
If you have any information about who violated my trust and my wedding planning, I will give you $100.
Next– if any of you are unhappy with the dress code requirements, it’s okay! You can come talk to me.
Instead of participating in the dance, you can help the crew clean up after dinner, volunteer to take videos of our dance, or even contribute to the honeymoon. Anything counts.
Finally, I am outraged at the comments these internet trolls have made about the dress code.
DO YOU —- KNOW ME? DO YOU KNOW WHY WE ARE DOING THINGS THIS WAY? No??? The shut up!
Go back down to your scum basement and play video games and never —- make comments about people you don’t know.
My husband and I are certified spiritual healers with over ten years of experience. You all know this.
Our wedding colors, fabrics, and intimate synchronized dance are something we hold very dear to our hearts. The expensive clothing represents the riches we wish to come. The black and camouflage outfits represents the aura of the devil that we must shoo away.
The soda hats represent our wishes for an abundance of live saving liquid. You get the picture.
We met at a psychic’s desensitization chamber over 12 years ago in Italy, as you all know. Why not bring our traditions and beliefs into our wedding?
Would you show up at an Indian persons [sic] wedding and make fun of their culture and their tradition? If not, don’t judge ours.
Anyway, I am so tired having to explain myself over and over. Please keep me updated.”
I have to admit that I’m not quite sure what to say after reading the previous message. I still have my personal questions about the glow sticks. Perhaps they are pointing toward a brighter future?
In addition, you are not going to find a genuine polygraph machine for under $100 online. That includes shopping on Amazon! Those machines also require the expertise of somebody who really knows what they are doing.
I don’t know what I would do if I was on this list.
