Bride Slammed For Demanding Bridesmaid Lose Baby Weight In 3 Weeks Or Be Replaced

WOW. There are “bridezillas” and then there are women who turn into such complete monsters there’s not even a word for them yet.

Take this bride, for example, who asked online if “it would be wrong” to replace her maid of honor for not fitting into her dress—only three weeks after having a baby. Her MAID OF HONOR. Wow, what a friend, huh?

Daily Mail

The bride’s question was shared in a Facebook wedding-shaming group. The full post reads:

“So my friend who is my maid of honor in my wedding recently gave birth and she hasn’t lost the baby weight. I know it’s not and (sic) easy thing to do an all but it’s been like 3 weeks already and she still looks pregnant.

She still has like a little over 3 weeks to lose the weight, but I’m not confident she will. She may not even fit her dress. I refuse to have it altered again. It was already altered multiple times for her and she said she’d fit into it.

My question is if on the day of the wedding she doesn’t fit the dress would it be wrong to have someone else take her place? I have someone in mind. She said she has a back up dress and I’m saying hell no to that. I’m not fat shaming but come on. My wedding it (sic) only one day and I’m not having it ruined by her or her baby weight.”

WHOA. That is a lot to take in. There is so much wrong with this woman’s view of friendship.

And the people commenting totally agreed, referring to the bride as the “worst friend in the world.” I’d take it further and say she’s no kind of friend at all; this is the behavior of a straight-up enemy.

Like, it’s one thing for you to want your wedding to run smoothly and not have any catastrophes, like, say, the cake falling on the ground or hell, the groom not showing up.

But to have someone’s BABY WEIGHT pose some sort of problem? This woman’s vision of what a wedding is meant to be is completely skewed.


Other women chimed in to share how long it took them to lose the baby weight after giving birth—and no one was near six weeks!

Maybe the maid of honor will get wind of this post and learn what a terrible person her friend is so she can choose to ditch the wedding altogether and do something worthwhile with her day.
