We all know how brides can get a little too caught up in their wedding being absolutely ‘perfect’. And considering how much weddings tend to cost, it’s, of course, a woman’s prerogative to want their special day to be incredible, but how far is too far when it comes to making this happen? This is the story of one bride-to-be who ordered each one of her guests to obey a very specific dress code, which even included categorizing people by their weight! Here’s what happened.
Every bride has the right to create a dress code for her wedding – formal dresses, black tie, that kind of thing. But is it ever okay for the dress code to be categorized according to the weight of your guests, or even worse, telling people they need to spend a minimum amount of money on their outfit?
Surely this is a clear example of the bride’s requests going way too far, especially when it starts to deter people away or simply making the wedding unenjoyable for all of your guests you have invited along.
One particular bride who falls under the category of this extreme ‘bridezilla’ type is a woman outed on Reddit – by her own guest! It all started when she sent a communal message to her guest list, telling them that she has now finalized the dress code which she wants them to all strictly abide by it.
Asking your guests to come dressed in their best is pretty much a given, but this particular bride took it one step further by writing a whole long list of outfit requirements that they basically had no choice but to follow. And we’re not just talking about smart shoes.
The post begins by the bride greeting her guests saying “So, hello all, who’s excited for Hawaii 2019?” – so it’s a destination wedding! Does that mean the guests are already having to pay for their flights?
She then continues saying: “I want to announce the long-awaited dress code. You all have over a year and a half to get everything you need…so no excuses” – no pressure then! It looks as though the invitees have been forewarned that there may be particular dress code on the way, but we’re pretty sure they weren’t expecting it to be so detailed.
The bride continues saying: “We know that it is rather specific, but it’s all for a reason…it’s so that we all collectively create a spectacular visual effect.” She explained how they will be taking part in some sort of optical illusion that’ll be filmed professionally on the day.
She said: “If it’s done correctly and we all do our bit properly, then it will make the synchronized dancing really come alive.” It’s not quite clear what kind of visual effect she’s going for, but we’d love to see what the end result looks like. All we can do is hope!
So now we know it’s all part of a collective visual dance, what exactly is the dress code she has created? Well, we have to warn you, it’s very specific indeed. So specific that we really doubt the entirety of their guest list are going to be able to get everything.
She classifies the dress code not just by formality, but she also wants specific colors, specific accessories, specific materials, even specific brands – and they’re not exactly the cheapest of brands either. We’re talking the top-end designer brands that can cost over $100 for a pair of socks…them sorts of brands. So without further ado…
For men, she wants them to wear a purple jacket, a soda hat, and all-white trainers. We’re not quite sure what kind of look she’s going for here, but one thing that we’re intrigued by is the soda hat? And we also notice that she hasn’t given any requirements for the bottom half?
Does she want joggers? Shorts? Jeans? Nude? And then to top it off…they all have to bring along some plain glow sticks too.
And now for the women…we’re afraid their dress code is just as unique too! They need to wear a green sweater, orange pants, and a Burberry scarf to accessorize. Now we know what you’re thinking – Burberry scarf is pretty expensive, right?
Well, not only are they required to get the scarf, but they also need to have a pair of Louboutin shoes on their feet. You know, the ones with the red heels that cost hundreds of dollars!
