Wedding Planners Reveal the Most Unbelievable Bridezilla Moments Ever
June 30, 2016
I'm not going to lie, I've seen most episodes of WE TV's Bridezillas — watching the weekly train wrecks made me feel better about my own life (plus, let's be real, it was totally entertaining). Yes, the brides were terrible, but the individuals below make those women look like angels. Reddit asked wedding planners the worst thing brides and grooms had done, and let's just say, the anecdotes below are why the terms bridezilla and groomzilla were invented.

Beware: Bridezillas Ahead

"How about momzilla? I was the planner for a wedding and had been working with the bride and groom. A few months in to planning the groom's mom calls me to change the date of the wedding. I thought it was kind of weird and called the couple to confirm the change. NOPE! Couple did not know anything about the date change and said to completely ignore the groom's mom and call them if she tried to get in contact." —girlfridayfail

"A bride once called having a melt down because her friend got engaged as well and was planning to get married in the same year as she was... Apparently it was her special year and not just a day. She threw a huge fit that this girl was only getting married to 'steal her thunder.'" —sillykitty1990

"Friend is a photographer. Does weddings. Got punched in the face by the groom because the groom decided that the photographer was 'taking too many photos of the bride.'" —BANNEDFROMALAMO

"Halfway through the reception we hear a ruckus and notice the bride was nowhere to be seen. We find out that she's locked herself in the toilet in tears. Turns out the mother of the groom had launched into a verbal racist tirade at her accusing her of 'stealing her son,' 'doing it to get a passport' despite the fact she is already a British citizen and all sorts of other horrible things." —GestaltJungle

"We had to substitute peonies because they weren't in season and to get them she would need to pay a ton, so she opted for garden roses instead. She tried to sue not only us for 'fucking up her bouquet.'" —neonchinchilla

"A groom from a wedding we just did is claiming the venue they used stole from them because he didn't receive wedding presents from all of his guests and he's 100 percent certain every single one brought them something. Now, he's wanting to sue the venue while also calling all of his guests to make sure they gave him money for his wedding gift." —neonchinchilla

"My sister threw the ring at her fiancé yesterday and stormed off down the street barefoot because she asked him when he was picking up some decorations for the wedding and he asked when he should. I guess she took that as, 'I don't care about this wedding or you. Your decorations are stupid and you look fat." —NoIdeaWhatImEvenDoin

"I primarily dealt with the bride and her maid of honour together [in regards to their invite design]. After the last revision, the maid of honour came in to make a relatively major change, insisting that the bride wanted it that way. Idiot me made the change, and the order went to print. Turns out the bride and her maid of honour had a falling out and the maid wanted to get back at her ex-friend." —ThaneStaples

"I had a really high strung groom who yelled at a one of his young guests (the kid was 12) for sitting out of his assigned seat, and told the kid and his parents to leave. Later at night, the bride's father (who was single) made out with one of the bridesmaids, and the groom punched him. We had to call an ambulance, and the groom was arrested." —Toronto_Planner

"The worst I've personally witnessed had a groom's baby mama (and ex fiancé) come to the reception uninvited. She grabbed the wedding cake, chucked it at the newlyweds, and began screaming how he was a deadbeat dad while she grabbed table wine bottles that she smashed on the ground." —AnaphylacticHippo

"The bride punched her mother in the face during photos, the bride kicked out the grooms best man, and that she cussed out our videographer.... Later that night I watched her shove a groomsman to the ground when he asked her to calm down." —LocusHammer

"The groom got mega plastered and smashed a bottle of cognac on the dance floor and literally tried to set in on fire. The function supervisor tried to tell him very politely that he couldn't and he got a it upset about that and started screaming 'This is my wedding and if I want to burn this place down I will.' Cops were called." —unverifiedscrobbler1

"Her brother (a groomsman) passed out from heat exhaustion. The officiant leaned in asked if she wanted to take a break while he was tended to and she said, 'Nah, just keep going, he's fine.' At the end, as she's recessing down the aisle, you could see the ambulance arriving in the background." —Doobie-Keebler

"I'm a pastry cook seriously had a bride freak the fuck out that another bride (had a tasting at the same time at a different table with another pastry cook) was using blush pink in her wedding too. Blush pink was the 'it color for weddings that year most weddings had blush pink." —Raddpixie

"A bride wasn't happy with her husband-to-be's vows, so she requested a 'time out' in order for him to go to the back room and come up with better ones. When the guy marrying them politely explained that he was on a very tight schedule, she called him a 'lying bastard' and huffed back up the aisle into the room. We kept everyone else seated, and she appeared a few minutes later with freshly written vows for her future husband. He read them, and the wedding continued as planned." —lindtbunnies

"This bride was a very large girl, and insisted that her bridesmaids wear ridiculously bulky dresses in order to not make her look so fat in the photos." —lindtbunnies

"A bride wanted all the bridesmaids to look as similar as possible including their skin tone and insisted on them having identical fake tans. One bridesmaid had really sensitive skin and told the bride that it would likely be harmful to her. The bride thought this was nonsense and insisted anyway. They got the fake tan and the bridemaid's skin went completely red and blotchy." —ruellera
