Please do not throw away your friendships over “Bridezilla” moments!
One bride wrote an email that has now done viral due to her ridiculous, threatening requests. [Read more here.] As a former bridesmaid (x4), I take offense to this email.

Yes, communicating your needs and wants to your bridal party is absolutely necessary—but keep it within reason. Remember that participating in any bridal party is fun, but also a financial commitment. According to TheWeddingChannel.com, it will cost the average woman $1,600 to serve as a bridesmaid. (This includes attire, travel, and event gifts.)
Your wedding day should be the most memorable day of your life. With any luck, your family and friends will be celebrating by your side. Remember to thank everyone for attending and your bridal party for participating. Savor the day, your hubby, and your closest friends.
