Bride Asks Her Bridesmaids To Pay For Her Wedding Gown

Is this the ultimate bridezilla? Woman finds her dream wedding gown for $10,500 - and asks her BRIDESMAIDS to pay for it

Bride from hell: An anonymous bridesmaid has revealed how her friend has asked her bridesmaids to pay for her outrageously expensive wedding gown

  • . An anonymous bridesmaid named Hayley revealed that her friend Caroline had become increasingly demanding as her wedding approaches
  • . After finding the perfect gown cost twice her budget, she asked each of her bridesmaids to pitch in - despite each already spending $550 on their dresses 

  • A bitter bridesmaid has anonymously revealed how her soon-to-be-married friend's extravagant demands included asking her bridesmaids to pay for her wedding gown.
    Haley, a high school English teacher, penned her story for Mamamia.com.au, saying that after initially being honored and excited to be one of seven bridesmaids for her friend Caroline, she soon realized that she was in the presence of a bridezilla.
    'At first, I thought Carol was just being a little overzealous,' she wrote, adding that the bride was looking for input on everything from hairstyles to groomsmen's outfits from her bridesmaids.

  • But things really began coming to a head when, on a particularly busy Friday, Haley received an email from Caroline asking her to compile an Excel spreadsheet with cake-maker suggestions, including price brackets, flavors and 'how prestigious the vendor is.' She asked that it be sent to her that same day.
    'I felt my blood start boiling. Was she serious?!' wrote Hayley. 'I have a full-time job, for crying out loud!'
    It being a busy day, Hayley responded that she wouldn't be able to get to it until the weekend and, though she received no reply, she did cancel her Saturday plans in favor of doing the research for her friend.
    But when she sent the spreadsheet that day, she received a brisk thank-you note from Caroline, with the addition: 'Would’ve been really helpful to have it yesterday when specified, but I appreciate it.'

  • And this was just the beginning. After each of the bridesmaids were made to spend $550 on their own dresses - not to mention the cost of the hen party, bridal shower, three spa days and travel and accommodation to the destination wedding itself - Caroline sent them all an email with the subject line: 'Bridesmaid dress contribution.'
    After much hunting, the bride had just found her dream dress: a satin Marchesa gown running for $10,500 - twice the amount of her original budget. The bridesmaids dutifully told her she looked stunning and the dress would be worth the price tag.
    So, when Hayley spotted the email, she broke out in a cold sweat. 
    'The latest bridal update was a long email outlining how she and Jase were hugely over their bridal budget now that she’d splurged on the dress. That it was “totally fine if you can’t” but she would really love if we could “pitch in” around $150 each towards her “dream dress,”' she wrote, adding that the bride argued how much it would mean that she would be 'wearing something we’d all had a part in.'
    While three of the seven bridesmaids replied with an offer to chip in, there was silence from the others - and Hayley was left positively fuming. 
    Her story ends with her rethinking not only her participation in the wedding, but also her entire friendship with Caroline.    
    Comments on the tale were almost entirely on Hayley's side, with some telling her to ditch Caroline as soon as possible. 
    'I would send her tons of bridezilla stories that are similar to yours so she can see what an ass she is making of herself,' wrote one reader. 'Only a complete narcissist would treat friends that way. Be smart and end this friendship quickly if she doesn't respond with a swift apology!'
