There’s nothing like a Bridezilla ruining a lifelong friendship for a party. This maid of honor was fired halfway through the wedding planning process after having to spend $4,000 for the bride’s big day. She shared her story via this thread on Reddit’s r/AmITheA**hole subreddit.
For context: when u/kateymand first began her duties as maid of honor, she was upfront about not wanting to spend more than $3,000 on the wedding, which to her felt like a conservative estimate. Somehow in this family, everyone thinks it’s perfectly normal for the maid of honor to be responsible for purchasing not just her own bridesmaid dress (which was $450, more than twice the average cost) but also the dresses for EVERY bridesmaid. I’m sorry, but in what universe is this normal?
The best part, of course, is when the inevitable confrontation happened and the bride LITERALLY said that u/kateymand couldn’t be her maid of honor because she keeps trying to “force [her] ‘CHEAP lifestyle down her throat.'” First of all, this woman should be a writer because that is visceral imagery right there. Second of all, YIKES! Now, the original poster has no interest in attending the wedding at all, and honestly neither would we.
