People call me a bridezilla for ditching my maid of honour over her nail colour but it’s my big day & I have standards | The Sun

AFTER months – and sometimes years – of planning a wedding, it comes as no surprise when a bride and groom want everything to be perfect when their special day approaches. 

Which is where the nickname bridezilla and groomzilla originate from.

It is where a man or woman whose behaviour in planning the details of their wedding is regarded as obsessive or intolerably demanding.

And one woman, from the US, has been classed as this after her demands were seen as intolerable.

The former friends of the bride took to Reddit to explain, writing: “So, some background: the bride (24f) and I (25f) have been best friends for 15 years, and we have always been on good terms with zero fights previously

“This may be chalked up to the fact that I absolutely hate conflict so I always try to either deescalate situations or simply adhere to her wishes.

“She has been planning a wedding for close to two years now, and she asked me to be her maid of honour as soon as she got engaged.

"I was ecstatic to be a part of this happy time for her, but that excitement has slowly started dying down because of how she's been treating me over the last few months.

“My final straw with her happened over this weekend during her bridal shower.”

Having arrived early to perform Maid of Honour duties and set up decorations, games and more, the woman claims it all went wrong when the bride-to-be saw her white nails.

The anonymous female continues in her Reddit post : “We started to get ready for some fun bridal games when my friend pulled me aside to have a private chat.

“I assumed it would be about how the day was going, but what she said honestly just hurt my feelings. 

'I wasn't respecting her wishes'

“She told me she wanted me to either rip off my nails or go home because she felt like the white nails were a subtle dig at her or a way for me to take attention off of her as white is 100% reserved for the bride.”

The maid of honour defended herself saying that they were only stick on nails she’d put on for a date with her boyfriend and hadn’t taken them off yet.

However, she refused to remove them upon her friend’s request because she found it ‘ridiculous’ and would’ve understood if it was a white dress she’d worn.

She continued: “My friend told me to leave because I wasn't respecting her wishes as the bride.

She’s a ridiculous bridezilla. This was a shower not the wedding and there is no wedding/shower colour ban for nails

“I did what I was told and left the event, and now people are messaging me saying I should have just taken the nails off. 

“Her fiancé even asked me to apologise and make up so the wedding can run smoothly in a few days. Apparently, she didn't think I'd actually leave and thought I'd rip off my nails after her threat.”

Now, the woman has been left feeling confused and wondering if she was in the wrong for saying what she said. 

Many Reddit users rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts.

One commented: “Your friend is being ridiculous. It’s quite possibly due to 15 years of you avoiding conflict and her thinking this type of behaviour is acceptable, so the sooner you make a stand, the better.”

Another said: “She’s a ridiculous bridezilla. This was a shower not the wedding and there is no wedding/shower colour ban for nails.

'It was a bridal shower'

"It’s completely up to you whether you want to keep your nails on and drop out or accommodate her but know whatever you choose she’s the crazy one.”

A third reasoned: “It was a bridal shower- not the wedding- and it was nails!! I doubt anyone noticed other than her and if they did, I doubt they would’ve thought twice.

“Your friend doesn’t sound like a very good one. I get that weddings are stressful and can make some people a little frazzled but it’s no excuse to act like this.

"Besides the fact that she thought you’d back off and cave to her demands once she threatened you is telling to how she sees you.

“You two need to talk. If she’s not normally like this and you want to save this friendship you need to tell her about her attitude during this wedding and hopefully it’ll give her a wake up call.

"If this is just another behaviour in a pattern- well- maybe this friendship has run its course.”
