I'm in a Catholic women's forum online, and one of the members posted about how she was asked to be a bridesmaid in her brother and his fiancee's wedding.
The bride already sounds like a bridezilla from other things, but now she's demanding they all wear 5 inch heels. As in, if they don't wear the heels, they're out of the wedding party.
That alone is so rude to me I can't stand it. But the member who posted about this will be like 8 months pregnant at the time. The bride doesn't care--wear the shoes. I'm not pregnant and I would NOT be able to wear shoes like that. Pregnant? Forget it.
To make things worse, some of the other people in the group were taking up for the bride because "it's the brides' day" and "it's not your wedding" and "every bride deserves her dream wedding".
You know, because when I was dreaming about marrying my husband, part of that dream was that all my bridesmaids wear 5 inch heels. And I'm entitled to this dream. UGH.
I just have no patience for a bride who's big problem is that her BMs don't want to wear ankle breaking shoes all day. STOP treating your bridesmaids like props, and START treating them like human beings, or, you know, people you supposedly LOVE.
Some people were even saying that it's wrong, but she should just be the bigger person and wear the shoes. Eff that. I think we need to stop enabling peoples' narcissism.
Sigh. Thanks for the vent.
