Getting married is a stressful thing, but it seems like some brides can handle the heat more than others.
A recent AskReddit thread asked users to recount the craziest “bridezilla” moment they’ve ever seen at a wedding. The responses range from finicky brides who want everything just so to some truly embarrassing tantrums.
And though INSIDER can’t independently verify any of these tales, they do make for some wild reading.

“She had decided that Kate looked too pretty after having her makeup done.”
“A girl I know, I’ll call her Kate, was [a] bridesmaid at a wedding. On the morning of the wedding, the bride had a full on screaming b—- fit and demoted Kate from being bridesmaid because she had decided that Kate looked too pretty after having her makeup done and the bride wanted to be the prettiest.” – Redditor ungratefulshitebag.
“I had no idea how to respond except to say I was sorry.”
“I worked for a florist setting up weddings when I was 15. I was the lowest person on the totem pole — I had no control over any aspect of the work and I was a grunt.
“I was setting up a wedding with hideous pink and sparkly decor. I remember it pretty distinctly. It was at the art museum on a Saturday, a venue that costs $10,000 to rent. So the bride and groom had money. I was alone at the museum because I couldn’t drive yet and I was frequently abandoned. Everything was ready for the reception.
“Bride comes in and starts crying and screaming about how the pink wasn’t the right shade and her wedding was ruined. According to the contract she signed with my boss, she had to have seen an example of the work she was getting and approved it. She approached me (15 year old me hiding behind a column because I didn’t have anywhere to go) and started screaming at me for ruining the wedding. I hadn’t made a single arrangement there. I had no idea how to respond except to say I was sorry.” – Redditor FromRussiaWithDoubt
“She lost a lot of respect and a lot of friends in two hours.”
“One day after her wedding, a friend I went to school with went on a rampage on Facebook about how none of her friends showed up to her big day and, the ones that did show up, didn’t dance or participate in anything at the reception.
“She blasted everyone and made her wedding party feel like s— because she spent too much money on unnecessary things that no one used (mainly the photo booth and tons of rented costumes and accessories to use in the booth).
“She made a second post an hour later complaining about all of the people that stopped her to take pictures and didn’t let her enjoy her party. It was hilarious to watch the comments flood in from people who went and were pissed and a few requested their gifts back. The kicker here is that a former classmate, someone who has a lot of mutual friends with the bride, lost his infant son earlier that week and the baby’s services fell on the same day as the wedding. Most of the people she was b—-ing at for not coming had opted to go to the child’s funeral service instead of her wedding. She lost a lot of respect and a lot of friends in two hours.” – Redditor ittakesonetoknowwon
