Bridezilla's Letter to Potential Bridesmaids

An unnamed bride sent a group email to her best friends, laying out the requirements for those who decide they want to be one of her bridesmaids. It's quite extensive. You get the feeling that she's already put way more thought and effort into the perfect wedding day than she's put into the marriage itself -and the wedding isn't until August of 2013! Here's an excerpt:

A few girls live out of town so if there is going to be a problem with coming to either one then I need to know now because after this week I don’t want to be surprised. I would like everyone to send me any dates they are going away or planning to go away after February so if your going away in January I don’t care. I want any dates from February to the day of our wedding in August, that way we know not to plan something when your away. But after this week the dates are set in stone. Also if money is tight and you cant afford to contribute to say the bachelorette party or wont be able to afford a dress etc then L— and Myself don’t have time to deal with that, I’m sorry. This includes flights as well, everyone knows the states where the parties are going to be held so if you wont be able to afford a flight then that means you cant make a party which ultimately means I cant have you as a bridesmaid. Obviously we’ll get the best deals and were not gonna books flights for $1000 and shit that’s why were doing this in advance, that goes for bridesmaids dresses as well everything will be affordable but if you think by affordable its going to be a $25 forever 21 dress then your going to the wrong wedding.

Oh, but that's just a small part of it. You can read the entire email at Gawker. Link -via Uproxx

Better to know beforehand what is expected than agreeing and then backing out and costing people unnecessary money. (Though making the bridesmaids pay for everything seems pretty awful.) Also, there are plenty of flaky bridesmaids that make this sort of thing necessary. This is an extreme example of one side of the spectrum, but the women that let their bridal party run the show is just as bad, imo.
