    A bride-to-be has called off her wedding after her fiance refused to ditch his best man because he was too short and had a unibrow crooked teeth. The anonymous bride said the best man is only '5ft 3' and would look 'ridiculous' escorting her 'beautiful' sister down the aisle. Posting on Facebook, the bride, believed to be from the US, revealed: 'I'm getting married next Saturday. 'All of my bridesmaids are gorgeous and honestly I can't imagine having better looking friends.

    t seems that every other day, a Bridezilla meltdown goes viral. Last month, a bride “vented” on Facebook after her guests declined a $1500 donation towards her special day. And today, another bride has some… warped expectations about her wedding. In a viral Facebook post posted to Reddit, a bride has completely slammed her guests for not RSVPing to her $2000 destination wedding in Hawaii. She began by admitting that a $3000 wedding in Thailand might have been too much. But that a $2000 Hawaii destination wedding is “within everyone’s reach”. Except, erm… It’s not.

    It's natural for any bride to feel stressed in the run up to their big day but walking down the aisle can often turn women into demanding bridezillas. And one lady, thought to be from the US, believes her sister is the biggest bridezilla of them all - after revealing she made her friends bid in an auction to secure a spot in her bridal party. Writing on Reddit, the 33-year-old dubbed her sister 'self-absorbed' as she revealed the bride-to-be was holding an auction for her potential bridesmaids to compete in for a place in her wedding. The sister explained...
  • Dear Bride: 10 wedding complaints from your bridesmaid

    06/04/2011 2:23:31 PM PDT · by Feline_AIDS · 132 replies
    There are few places someone can go to lament the loss of traditional values like FR. Today I'm lamenting the death (or terminal illness) of the sensible American wedding. As a 24-year-old American girl, I attend lots of nuptials, and because of familial obligations certain brides couldn't eschew, I've even been an occasional bridesmaid. Every subsequent wedding I attend seems to be the next in a terrifying sequence of tacky one-upmanship. It's as though each bride has a "ridiculous counter" that ticks up and up during the planning until true perfection of ridiculousness is realized on the big day. Here...

Police spokesman Hugh White said Monday that officers had to restrain 28-year-old Angela Davito around 9:30 p.m. Saturday after she became disorderly at the suburban Gilbert home where her reception was held.

    Dominique Buttitta wanted to get married in style, so she spared no expense on her upcoming nuptials: $30,000 to reserve a banquet hall outside Chicago; $11,000 for flowers and spot lighting; $10,000 for an orchestra; $5,000 on her wedding dress and veil. As Buttitta excitedly continued preparations, the costs kept mounting. Then, four days before the big day, her fiance called the Oct. 2 wedding off. With such short notice, she could not recover most the money she had spent — so the 32-year-old lawyer is suing. In a civil suit filed a few weeks ago in Illinois, she accuses...

    Obviously someone needed to rein in this woman during the wedding planning. What kind of ego does it require to commission a life-sized replica of yourself in cake? But what really baffles me is this: the details are exact right down to the hair clip, so what the heck is UP with that tacky red rick-rack down the skirt of the cake? "Sure, we hand-painted a matching bodice-design, copied the make-up and hairstyle, and have identical veils - but then we thought this giant rick-rack would add just the right extra touch!" ?!? Obviously Bridezilla shares my opinion: she's eying...

    Tampa - Tasha Johnson and Markeith's fairy tale themed wedding featured a horse and carriage. During the reception one guest became upset when the groom started tossing money onto the dance floor for the children to scoop up. Tempers flared and some pushing and shoving took place. Some of the wedding guests chose sides and that led to an all out brawl that spilled out into the parking lot. Investigators say nearly 40 people were involved. One of the first officers to respond was hit several times while trying to break up the fights. A manager, at The Rusty Pelican...

    The traditional throwing of a bride's bouquet for luck ended in disaster at an Italian wedding when the flowers caused a plane to crash. The bride and groom had hired a microlight plane to fly past and throw the bouquet to a line of women guests, Corriere della Sera reported. However, the flowers were sucked into the plane's engine causing it to catch fire and explode. The aircraft plunged into a hostel. One passenger on the plane was badly hurt. But about 50 people who had been in the hostel escaped unscathed, as did the pilot.

    It's been more worse than better for the Wielechowskis since they exchanged wedding vows a year ago. "This whole thing is ridiculous and I'm sorry," Christa Wielechowski, 26, told a judge Tuesday during a hearing on a wedding night brawl in a Ross hotel. "I was in jail in my wedding gown after being beaten and humiliated. I'm all over the world in the news. I think that is punishment enough." Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge John A. Zottola apparently didn't think so. He sentenced her to 180 days of house arrest and fined her $600 for her no-contest pleas...

    Bridesmaids may soon be forced to sign contracts agreeing not to put on weight or get pregnant before a friend's wedding. One in five brides-to-be is so concerned that her bridesmaids might let her down that she would ask her maid-of-honour to sign a written "pre-nuptial agreement", according to a new poll. A bridesmaid contract is the latest American-style trend for brides Despite the fact that 61 per cent of brides picked a best friend as their choice of bridesmaid and 49 per cent chose their sister, 48 per cent would sack a bridesmaid who failed to stick to the...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The wedding was lovely, except for the flowers: They were the wrong color. So says the bride, Elana Glatt, who was so upset that she sued the florist and alleged breach of contract. She says Posy Floral Design in Manhattan substituted pastel pink and green hydrangeas for the dark rust and green ones she had specified for 22 centerpieces. Not only that, she alleges that the hydrangeas were wilted and brown, and arranged in dusty vases without enough water.

  • Bridezilla with a bad hair day was really an actress

    (2/02/07) - It was a hair scare viewed around the world. A YouTube clip of a Canadian bride cutting off her unflattering updo got 2.8 million clicks after it was posted Jan. 18 by someone who appeared to be a back-stabbing bridesmaid. While it was undoubtedly entertaining, many wondered whether the clip was real. More than 1,000 people on YouTube debated the legitimacy of the frenzied hair-hacking. Even the mainstream media couldn't figure it out. This week, though, Jodi Behan, the video's star, came clean. Far from a "bridezilla," Behan is a 22-year-old aspiring actress from Toronto. The whole escapade...

    'It's like being stuck in a river getting whisked over a waterfall' ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) -- On the surface, Jennifer Wilbanks was a happy bride-to-be who showed no sign to friends or family that she wanted to call off her extravagant wedding. But underneath, as she would later tell police after running away to New Mexico, Wilbanks was scared and not sure she wanted to go through with her big day. Marriage counselors say Wilbanks' actions are an extreme but understandable reaction to the stress of the wedding and the fear of disappointing others by backing out. "Sometimes it's like...

    NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - After a three-day flight that included faking her own kidnapping, runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks now has to face several hundred jilted guests, many of whom had already bought gifts, according to several gift registries. Wilbanks, 32 was scheduled to celebrate her nuptials with fiancee John Mason, 32, on Saturday, April 30. With 600 guests, 14 bridesmaids and 14 groomsmen, a reception at the ritzy Atlanta Athletic Club and a bridal registry that included a $250 Waterford ice bucket, some experts figure the wedding tab would have run into the six figures.

The tale of what has been billed one of Britain's least successful ever marriages ended with 23-year-old McKie being dragged from his own wedding reception by police, newspapers reported on Thursday. According to the reports, the happy marriage lasted for all of 90 minutes before Anderson, enraged at a drunken toast to the bridesmaids by her new husband at their...
