Craziest Bridezilla Stories

We’re sure you’ve heard the term “bridezilla” before.

It starting popping up in the early 1990s as a way to describe an out-of-control bride-to-be be who’s selfish, demanding and believes her wedding is the most important thing in the world. Charming, right?

Chances are if you’ve ever met a bridezilla you’ve never forgotten the experience. Crazy stories abound online about normal people who’ve encountered horrific bridezillas and lived to tell the tale (sometimes barely!).

Here are some of the craziest bridezilla stories floating around the internet, courtesy of Reddit:

The “I’m the queen” bridezilla

A (former) friend told me got mad at one of her bridesmaids because she got pregnant and was going to be “too big” by the wedding date. The bridezilla told me she told her bridesmaid it was selfish to have gotten pregnant because she could do that any time, but the wedding would only happen once.

I saw a bridezilla kick ugly people out of a group photo.

The night before the wedding at the rehearsal this bridezilla figured out the flower girl had the same shoes as her, in a much smaller size. She flipped out at 9 p.m. and made the mother of the flower girl buy different shoes for her before the ceremony.

A girl I know, I’ll call her Kate, was bridesmaid at a wedding. On the morning of the wedding the bride had a full on screaming fit and demoted Kate from being bridesmaid because she had decided that Kate looked too pretty after having her makeup done and bride wanted to be the prettiest.

When I was 14 my cousin was getting married. She made every single one of her cousins bridesmaids except for me. She told me I was too fat to be a part of her wedding. She still doesn’t understand why I don’t like her.

The “Above the law” bridezilla

I worked at motel that held a big wedding party and one of the bride’s sons was drunk and running around naked. The police were called and the guy arrested. The bride was yelling at me: ‘Why did I ruin her day by locking up her 18 yr. old son?’

The bride at a family wedding tried to kill me because I wore a funky suit and tie. If I remember correctly, it was a grey/forest green striped suit. She claimed it didn’t go according to dress code. I do not remember a dress code being addressed. She grabbed her to-be husband’s handgun from his glovebox and fired 4 shots at me. She was arrested because a bullet grazed my arm.

The “Above the laws of nature” bridezilla

I’ve organized over 150 destination weddings in Bali and I’ve only ever had one bridezilla. She cried because her peonies flowers weren’t white enough and proceeded to not speak to me for the rest of the day.

I work at a bakery and part of my job is to help pair couples with the correct designer for their cake. One bride wanted a cake large enough to feed 500 and she wanted it to float. Apparently, she had seen a floating cake in an anime show and decided nothing else was acceptable. When I told her we can’t make floating cakes, she threw her coffee on the floor and cried that we were ruining her wedding.

The “I own the calendar” bridezilla

My sister in law threw a massive fit because my other brother proposed to his girlfriend and they wanted to get married in the same year, but months apart. She said it was her special year and didn’t want her attention taken, even though they waited 3 years to get married.

I saw a woman in a wedding dress screaming about all these “freaks” being at her wedding. She scheduled her wedding at the same hotel as Acen that year (one of the largest anime conventions in the country). She was not happy and seemed to think that the hotel was hers and her guests for the weekend.

Our wedding venue booked two wedding parties on the same day. No problem, they said we wouldn’t overlap, we didn’t particularly care anyway. Towards the end of getting our photos done, the photographer says to me we’re being moved to another part of the garden because this other party was inside and the bride did not want to see another bride on her big day.

The “Give me free things” bridezilla

When I was about thirteen I was flying with my folks to visit family in Hawaii. While we were waiting for our flight, I overheard a woman throwing a temper tantrum to the desk agent. She kept going on and on about how she was the bride and how she needed to be upgraded to first class or it was going to ruin her honeymoon. Screaming, crying, like full on toddler style temper tantrum.

The “Control Freak” bridezilla

My sister-in-law told my partner she couldn’t bring me to her destination wedding because she didn’t want my partner’s homosexuality to be a distraction on her big day.

I once saw an email from a bride to her bridesmaids that detailed all the things they were expected to do for her in preparation for the wedding. Some items included losing weight, coloring their hair so they would look the same, expecting multiple lavish parties thrown in her honor by them, and much more.

I used to waitress at weddings. I had a bride have a meltdown once because the pink candles and white candles were in the wrong order in her big expensive lanterns. We had to run around and change them.

Went to a friend’s wedding where the bridezilla was not on speaking terms with her soon to be mother in law. Apparently the MIL made some change to a steak sauce or something and my friend freaked out yelling. She made her brother go buy her a Lunchable from the grocery store. She ate a Lunchable at the main table of the reception.
