A woman believes her pregnant bridesmaid should pay £30k for her to have a second wedding after ruining her big day by being the centre of attention.
Posting on Reddit’s Am I The A**hole forum, an anonymous woman, who goes by the username ‘Ignored Bride’, explains her three-year planned wedding was destroyed by one of her bridesmaid’s named Anna.
The bride explained: ‘She was hugely pregnant, and didn’t refrain from showing it off. We’re both fairly young (25) and in my husband’s culture, getting pregnant before late 20s/30s, married or not, is basically a teenage pregnancy and drew ATTENTION.
‘She also has a vibrant personality and has a way of eclipsing everyone around her. Her husband is also very tall and incredibly attractive, which drew a lot of attention.
‘All anyone spoke about or of was Anna’s pregnancy and her attractive husband. Even in the line, people were asking about that “electric woman” and of her pregnancy/marriage/life. When they got up to dance, all eyes were on them.’
The bride added: ‘I ended up leaving midway through the reception in tears, and never attended the next morning’s brunch. Anna and her entourage left early the next morning and also didn’t attend. I can’t even look at the pictures without crying and desperately want a do over.’
‘I’m not a bridezilla, but this was beyond the pale. It felt like a celebration of Anna’s marriage. I’m sorry, but I put so much planning, effort, and money into this while someone that got pregnant without a thought and married spur of the moment reaped the benefits.’
The post received almost 1000 comments from viewers, with nearly all readers slamming the bride as acting unfair towards Anna.
One said: ‘It sounds like she was jealous that Anna didn’t desire all the riches in the world and yet was still happy. She thinks she’s better than her friend and didn’t like that her friend was happy with what she would call a mediocre life.’
Another added: ‘It’s not Anna’s fault she decided to live her life. Your planning spanned three years without any consideration OR expectation of possible changes within the people involved. HELLO? Time doesn’t stand still just for you. That alone shows how self-centred you are. You are 100% a bridezilla.’
