A bride has been facing backlash after revealing she created a ‘bridesmaid contract’ consisting of 37 rules and expectations.
The unnamed bridezilla, who is believed to be from the United States, took to Facebook to explain she came up with 37 rules that she forced her bridesmaids to sign ahead of her big day.
Among other rules, the bride ordered her bridesmaids to save $50 a month, for at least 14 months, for her big day. She also told them not to gain more than 7 pounds, to agree to everything she tells them, and to wear and pay for whatever she chooses for them. The bridezilla also demanded bridesmaids do not get pregnant before her wedding.
As the bride revealed in her post, only six of her ten selected bridesmaids were willing to sign her contract and agree to the rules.
After the list of rules went viral, people were quick to slam the bride and brand her contract “ridiculous.”
“Am I reading this right? Just ridiculous. And I can’t believe six people signed it,” one netizen wrote.
“I would screw this contract up and throw it in the bride’s face. What an idiot,” another one said.
As the majority of people suggested, they would refuse to play a part in the bride’s wedding if she made them sign such a contract.
Below is the bride’s full list of rules included in her bridesmaid contract.
“I will not try to convince the bride to change anything in her wedding.
“I will not talk negative about anyone in the wedding.
“I will not gain more than 3kg between now and the wedding.
“I will wear only black or dark brown hair on the day of the wedding (highlights may be accepted with prior approval).
“I cannot wear any lashes the day of the wedding unless professionally installed.
“I have to attend the bridal shower and bachelorette party, fitting and rehearsals and wedding (only time this can be missed is death or jail, pregnancy over five months and some sickness with recent doctor’s note).
“I will take care of my skin, hair and nails from now until the wedding.
“The bride will choose my make-up artist the day of the wedding.
“I will agree to wear the dress the bride chooses regardless of my own opinions, style or color.
“I will not wear any extra accessories, items of clothing or jewelry the day of the wedding except my wedding or engagement ring.
“I will not intentionally fall pregnant before the wedding. (Pregnancy under five months will not be excused from attending wedding events).
“I will support the bride in everything she chooses.
“I will not consume more than seven units of alcohol during any even except bachelorette party (there will be no limit).
“I will not bring a date to wedding or reception without bridal approval.
“I will not bring any outside people, except kids, to any meeting.
“I will not bring my kids to the wedding unless they are a part of the wedding party (no exceptions).
“I will make sure I have an accountable babysitter the day of all events and I understand that no show for no babysitter will not be an acceptable excuse.
“I will not make any advances towards males in the wedding party.
“I will not date anyone in the wedding party that I wasn’t dating before I signed this contract.
“I will be happy and positive at all times during wedding and reception.
“I will not grow sensitive and angry with the bride because I understand that she has a bossy attitude.
“I will not attempt to outdo the bride in any way.
“I will wear the hairstyle the bride chooses for the wedding day.
“I understand that I have to purchase my own dress and shoes and hairstyle for the wedding.
“I understand that the bachelorette party may be a destination getaway.
“I understand that I have to purchase a bachelorette party T-shirt and fund my own trip if it is away.
“I understand that the maid and matron of honor will need help funding some of the events. The wedding and reception are not included.
“I understand that the bride does not want any suggestion and this agreement is on here twice, two different ways because the bride wants it to be clear. Only suggestion allowed is a way to get her exact item at a cheaper price.
“I will not drop out of the wedding party for any of the reasons listed above. If I do not like anything listed, I will not sign the contract and I will be replaced. I understand that I do not agree to the above terms it will not ruin the bride and I’s friendship. But if I sign and agree and later want to drop out, then it will ruin our friendship.
“I understand that no friendship to the bride is bigger than anyone in her wedding party and everyone will be treated equally.
“I understand that I may have to do physical activity at the reception and this requires practices provided by the bride.
“No colored contact lenses allowed.
“No black drawn-on eyebrows or thick drawn-on (matter of fact, revert back to make-up law above).
“No glossy colored lipstick allowed (the kind that looks very, very shiny and bright).
“No colorful nails the day of the wedding. Only colors allowed are American, French or Nudes.
“I will provide the bride with my normal seven-day schedule within five days of signing this contract.
“I will agree to save at least $50 a month for expenses for the next 14 months.”
