23 people reveal the most horrifying bridezilla moments they’ve ever seen — and they’ll make you want to stay single
There’s no getting around it: weddings can be really stressful, especially for a bride. And although no one would blame them for getting a little upset, some exceed the acceptable amount of anger and turn into total bridezillas.
We’ve rounded up our favorite horror stories from Reddit that will make you laugh, cringe, and decide that, maybe it’s better to just elope.

«The bride threw an actual, honest-to-god tantrum.»
«His wife apparently laughed in her face.»
«Not my experience, but a former coworker of mine.
He and his wife went to a wedding in Hawaii and took a full two weeks of vacation to do so (they arrived two days before the wedding which was on a Saturday). They figured that if they were going to Hawaii for this wedding, they’d make it worth their while and take a full vacation as well. Apparently they were the only couple that elected to do that (or at least admit to it and discuss their plans). And the bride lost her s— about it.
«THIS IS MY WEDDING! WHY IS IT JUST A FOOTNOTE FOR YOUR VACATION NOW?!»
His wife apparently laughed in her face and told her to call if she decided to grow up about it. To her credit, the bride did call later to apologize profusely for her outburst. Nerves I guess.» – Redditor syriquez
«The bride discovered this only after their beer and wine ran out one hour into the reception.»
«We showed up to an outdoor wedding in early March and it was freezing. There was food . but it was cold. There were no chairs. There were tables with chairs under a pavilion but they were reserved for family and wedding party only.
The games that were supposed to entertain guests broke during the very first game played . corn hole corn EVERYWHERE. The groomsmen were cold and tired of standing, so they invited a large percentage of guests to their «getting ready suite» which had couches and a pool table.
The bride discovered this only after their beer and wine ran out one hour into the reception. Cue [a] screaming match in the middle of everyone. The groomsmen liquored the groom up and he danced the last song before passing out behind the DJ, while the bride took tear-stained selfies with her bridesmaids.» – Redditor schlahdeedah
«She told me to send my assistant to the funeral, and that I had better be at her wedding.»
«Coordinator here. We had a death in the family (6-month-old baby) a few days prior to a wedding. I called the bride and told her the situation, and said than my assistant would be stepping in for me so that I could attend the funeral.
She told me to send my assistant to the funeral and that I had better be at her wedding. I told her I would be sending her a refund and that no one would be coming.» – Redditor Imabigdiva
«Apparently it didn’t match the dress.»
«By the way, she’s divorced from millionaires and has plenty of cash.»
«I apologetically explained to her that I couldn’t be there because it would literally be the end of my career.»
«I work in an industry with a busy season such that you cannot get time off toward the end, except in life or death situations. When my wife’s sister let us know (three months in advance) that she was getting married just after the busy season, I told her that I was glad it was then because if it had been even three days earlier I couldn’t attend, due to the time it would take to travel the 900 miles to be there. The next day she called us and told us that they’d moved the wedding to two weeks earlier.
Well, I apologetically explained to her that I couldn’t be there because it would literally be the end of my career. She didn’t listen to a word I said, and tried to guilt trip me into going. Despite them knowing I wouldn’t attend in this situation even before they changed the date of the wedding, I would get phone calls every other day with either my sister-in-law or mother-in-law yelling and screaming at me because I was going to ruin the wedding by not being there.
My wife went to the wedding. I ate a pizza. It was friggin» delicious.» – anonymous Redditor
«She came running out saying that we needed to move the tent three feet.»
«I use to work for a tent company and we would set up for weddings. One in particular comes to mind.
It was 95 degrees out, middle of July, and we were all suffering. This was a large wedding, with a large tent, stage, dance floor, tables, chairs, plates, silverware, lights, ect.
We arrived at her parent’s house at 7 a.m. She was all nice and calm, said that she would buy us all lunch (six or seven guys) at around noon to thank us for our hard work. She also said that she would bring us water since it was so hot out and we could tap into the keg when we were done. Great deal right?
Wrong. About noon we had gotten the tent up, the lighting done, the stage and dance floor partially set up. She came running out saying that we needed to move the tent three feet. Yes, we needed to move the 240′ by 60′ tent 3 feet. My initial response was, «are you kidding me?» She wasn’t.
After talking it over with her we decided to move the tent (we had to, the customer is always right even when they say «This is where I want the tent to go,» we put it up and she changes her mind). We take it down, move the tent three feet and put it back up. It is now pushing 8 p.m. Still no water, lunch or dinner. 10 p.m. rolls around and we are unloading tables. She comes storming out saying, «You are making too much noise. BE QUIET.»
One guy I worked with asked, «Can we please get some water now? We drank all of the water that we brought.»
She goes, «Umm . The hose is around back, take some but not too much, water is expensive.»
We never got a lunch, dinner or beer.» – Redditor Drewtip
«Some people started to leave because they were expecting to be fed and didn’t want to stay.»
«When we went into the reception, we were expecting a buffet or something to be set up, but there was nothing. Later we found out that there was no food for the 120 guests, but rather a cheese spread, fruit platter, and vegetables with dip.
After an hour, people were really hungry and some people started to leave because they were expecting to be fed and didn’t want to stay.
When the bride found out, she ran across the room in her dress and blocked the doors, screaming about how everyone is ruining her wedding and screaming, «Bride’s Day, Bride’s Way!» It was such a scene that her father had to peel her off the door (don’t know where the husband was, probably cowering) and people who didn’t know her that well all left.
I heard through the grapevine that she was inconsolable the entire night, got trashed and threw up (hopefully on her dress, but not sure).
Oh well, Bride’s Day, Bride’s Way!» – Redditor bemo12
«My aunt wouldn’t budge until my grandmother eventually begged her to for the sake of the wedding.»
«My auntie was 38 when she got married: She was the eldest of two sisters (her sister was my mom; my mum got married when she was 22 to my dad) so she’d waited a long time for a guy to marry her.
My sister was one of her bridesmaids. During a practice at the church, my aunt shouted at my sister for walking out of time. My sister was only seven at the time and to have a seriously stressed bridezilla in her face because she didn’t put her foot in the right place at the right time was terrifying.
She burst into tears and, according to my mom, my aunt said, «Oh and NOW she’s crying. Can you remind me how old you are?!» My mom was furious with her, my aunt is stubborn so for a few weeks my mom told my aunt to find a new bridesmaid. My aunt wouldn’t budge until my grandmother eventually begged her to for the sake of the wedding.
Even now my sister isn’t fond of my aunt. My aunt is still extremely stressy, she has a young daughter of her own now who she treats like a queen. If anything happens to her, she turns into the Hulk.» – Redditor omneatlas
«My brother ended up having six people at his wedding.»
«My brother’s first wife wouldn’t allow any of our family that she hadn’t met into the wedding. Now, we’ve got a good size-family, so this would mean things like inviting one cousin that she’d met, but not their parents or siblings that lived out of town, etc. We offered to hold an engagement party so she could get to know some of our out-of-towners, but she declined, saying she didn’t want to feel obligated to invite these new family members that she’d only met once and didn’t know very well.
In the end, we decided to go with immediate family only: We figured it would be less awkward and rude than to pick-and-choose between family. My brother ended up having six people at his wedding, along with around 65 from the bride’s side.» – Redditor Gipperfish
«Brides sometimes don’t think rationally.»
«She narrowed her eyes and told me she thought I had a problem with the truth.»
«My worst bride was an ivy-league-educated shrink. She tried to play head games with absolutely everyone involved in the planning of the wedding. Frequently had fits. She and I butted heads because she wanted a carpet running straight from the bottom of the stairs to the doors of the chapel. I told her it wasn’t possible (they didn’t line up). She kept on asking me if I was sure, even after I showed her exactly what I meant. She narrowed her eyes and told me she thought I had a problem with the truth.
She was very controlling with the groom as well. I remembered their names and looked them up on Facebook a while back. They’re divorced and he appears to be happily remarried.» – Redditor cfvh
«The bride called her with a response along the lines of «Good, well now you can be back in the wedding.'»
«I knew a woman who was a bridesmaid in a relative’s wedding. She was married and had been trying to get pregnant for a while. Finally, she and her hubby got lucky and she conceived.
The bridezilla got furious, and kicked her out of the wedding because she would be pregnant in the pictures. Three months later, sadly, the woman miscarried. The bride called her with a response along the lines of «Good, well now you can be back in the wedding.»
Needless to say, she did not even attend it.» – Redditor hulagirl4737
«She never told me where it was, even though I kept asking.»
«I had this client book me two weeks before the actual wedding. I regret taking it to this day.
She had no transportation planned to take her home at the end of the night. I asked her repeatedly what her plan was, and she told me she just wouldn’t drink and planned to drive to her honeymoon spot.
Fast forward two weeks. A massive tornado just went through the D.C./VA/MD area the day before her wedding and power lines and trees were blocking every entrance to the highway to her wedding in the boonies of Maryland. I got up early to deal with the issues at the venue, like no electricity on a 100 degree day. I get a call from her around 6 a.m. saying she realized she needs transportation now. Fine, I’ll find it.
One last question, «Where is this mystery honeymoon spot?» . «Oh, hours away in West Virginia.» I call every D.C. and Maryland-based limo company and beg them to find someone to drive into the Maryland countryside at 11 p.m. and then take them to West Virginia. Finally someone relented, and I called the bride to tell her the price. Complete. F——. Meltdown. Well guess what, you request that at the last minute, you’re going to pay whatever they want to charge you.
The wedding itself was a complete s——-. As it was 100 degrees and blazing July sun, the original unshaded area was going to be terrible for the ceremony. I suggested we move it for her comfort and the comfort of her guests to the beautiful area with a centuries old tree. She refused, but as guests arrived they did nothing but complain. I decided to say f— it and moved the ceremony to make everyone happy.
To top it all off, I got heat stroke and my poor assistant had to drive us home at midnight.» – Redditor MorallyCorruptBae
The untold truth of Bridezillas
The traditional June wedding stems back to the days of Roman mythology, where it was common to marry during the month dedicated to the goddess Juno. Juno was the protector of women in marriage and childbearing, however, this regal goddess was also often portrayed as a savage and warlike goddess who eventually gave birth to Mars, the god of war. Her Greek equivalent, Hera, was also known to unleash her deadly wrath on those who displeased her, and both goddesses were known for bending the wills of men to their advantage.
Perhaps these goddesses were the inspiration for the June 2004 debut of WE tv«s Bridezillas. The show’s title is fairly telling of the temperament of its stars, but here are a few things you might not have known about the show and its cast, right out of the mouths of previous cast-members themselves. I spoke to Porsha from season eight and Melissa from season seven, and both had some interesting dirt to share.
Ratings street cred
The show was designed to follow a bride through the final days of her wedding preparations, highlighting the stressed-out bride’s outlandish and sometimes violent behavior. One woman’s hissy fit turned out to be another woman’s guilty pleasure, and the premiere episode of the fourth season was ranked as the highest original WE tv series season premiere of all time.
The screening process: just add crazy
Some Bridezillas sent in their own applications to be on the show. But Porsha, from season eight, told me her mom and sisters signed her up. And Melissa from season seven said her very own groom sent in her application «as a joke.» The show called them for a follow-up interview and chose the most entertaining candidates. Melissa, Porsha and their respective hubbies appeared in the series spinoff, Marriage Boot Camp, which apparently had an even more in-depth review process. Both women said they had to undergo psychological testing to be on the show. But it wasn’t just to make sure they were mentally stable. Porsha said they wanted to see if you were at least a little bit crazy to provide the viewers with entertainment. They also had a full medical review complete with blood work.
With a name like Bridezillas, the show’s directive should have been clear. But not all brides saw it that way. Season two bride Julia Swinton-Williamson sued the producers for misleading her about the nature of the show. The lawsuit was thrown out in 2009, but she wasn’t the only bride who felt duped. Porsha from season one has befriended many of the former Zillas who are furious about their portrayal on the show. Porsha said she knew the show was going to make her look crazy — as part of her contract, she was required to watch all previous episodes of the show. But she said she didn’t care, because Bridezillas are meant to be controlling and demanding. She claims she was pretty happy about her episode, and said she was the highest rated Zilla.
Melissa’s point of view
Melissa from season seven was also happy with her episode stating «I liked mine as well. It was funny!» She said she didn’t see the show as a way to portray women as crazy selfish wedding monsters, but instead a way to show other brides to be how hectic the week before their weddings could be.
Many viewers wondered why a woman would sign up for a show that was aimed at portraying her as a psychotic wedding beast. For some, it was the 15 minutes of fame and the connections they’d make in show biz, but for others it was the compensation. Brides had to already have their weddings paid for, but they were reimbursed for food, clothes and were given compensation for their time during filming. Porsha said they were paid for Boot Camp as well, getting paid the first day they arrived in the house and the last day of filming. She also cashed in on the reunion show and the Where Are They Now segments.
More than 15 minutes
For some Bridezillas, the 15 minutes of fame was fleeting. But for others, the viewers needed more. Natalie Nunn was picked up by Oxygen for the Bad Girls Club. Melissa from season seven said she was contacted to be on The Bachelor, but she had to tell them no because she was, in fact, still married to her husband Chris. Porsha did her video blog, Porsha’s Recap, for WE tv, and she was contacted by The Biggest Loser, but couldn’t join the show because she was pregnant with her daughter at the time. She also filmed for her own show, but stopped because she was so sick during her pregnancy. Porsha told me she wouldn’t want her daughter to follow in her reality television footsteps because she should follow her own dreams.
Virtual reality TV
Bridezillas might be classified as reality television, but the brides from the show say it wasn’t completely real. Brides were routinely asked to do things over again «with more drama,» said Melissa from season seven. «They need to entertain viewers,» she told me. «True reality isn’t entertaining.»
Porsha said filming for Bridezillas was exhausting. Brides are already stressed because of preparations for their big day, but the camera crews following her around for 12 hours a day with people telling her «go back, say this over, do this over,» just amplified her exhaustion. She said one of the requests she got from the directors was for her to curse more. And although she was pretty happy with her episode, she said it was severely edited to include a lot more footage of her cursing people out. Her biggest complaint was that they showed her feet on camera. «I hate my feet,» she laughed.
The show might have been about women berating and attacking their closest friends and family members, but it wasn’t all hair pulling and teeth gnashing. Friendships were formed between former Zillas. Porsha said she’s befriended several former brides, but her best friend from the show is Minyon, the bride from season nine who fought her sister and angrily cut up her mother’s dress for the wedding.
Nine years after the first bridal freakout, WE tv renewed Bridezillas for its 10th and final season. In the works was a spin-off series called Marriage Boot Camp, a show aimed at saving the marriages of former Bridezillas couples. Boot Camp was designed to bring the seemingly doomed marriages of the Bridezillas back together. Melissa from season seven said she agreed to be on the show, but was sadly disappointed in their motives. «I think we truly believed it was a program to help us rebuild our marriage,» she said. «And it was a drama-filled cluster f***.»
Boot camp blues
Jim and Elizabeth Carroll were hired on as the hosts of Marriage Boot Camp, the Bridezillas spin-off designed at healing the marriages of the broken Bridezillas. The couple was beloved by the cast, and Porsha said her biggest complaint was not being able to speak with them off camera. The couple weren’t just show ponies, either. The program they used on the show is based on a real-life intense marriage-building seminar program called Marriage Boot Camp run by the Carrolls. But Melissa from season seven said what people saw on the show wasn’t an accurate representation of the program Jim and Elizabeth run. «They will tell you themselves that was TV, not how the real program is,» Melissa said. She felt like the producers wanted to put the couples in crazy situations, like the episode where they tried, unsuccessfully, to coax Melissa into a casket, just to amp up the drama. «If I had it to do over again, I still wouldn’t have gotten in,» Melissa said.
Not all Zilla’s bad behavior went unpunished. Bride Karee Gibson Hart was jailed for two days for violating her probation when she violently threatened her mother-in-law and set her bridesmaid’s shoes on fire. Viewers took to the internet to voice their opinions on the bride’s bad behavior. Porsha told me she ignored the majority of her hate mail, but some of the attacks really got to her. She said one night she and a group of Zillas got on the phone and were talking about how they felt about the show, and they were all in tears.
Still, not all the publicity was bad. Porsha told me she had celebrities like Coco tweeting her to say she should have her own show. Although she’s currently working as a training coordinator, Porsha says she would still love to work in the entertainment industry. When she was younger, her dream was to be the female Kevin Hart. And her top choice right now would be to work with Tyler Perry.
But what about the grooms
Viewers constantly ask how these men could possibly walk down the aisle with these wedding monsters. Former groom Steven from season 10 told me he married his bride in the hopes that it would be the solution to a toxic relationship. «I was with Amanda for five years. I loved her. I honestly did,» Steven said. «We had issues. I knew it wasn’t going to work out. I thought by marrying her it would fix things.» But it only made things worse. A year and one day after they said «I do,» Steven said «I can’t» and moved to Orlando while Amanda stayed behind in Ocala. According to Steven, she’d been having an affair with a guy named Andy she met through her sister. According to Steven, Andy and Amanda are still together, but when he last saw them in public Amanda grabbed her new beau and ran off.
Steven said it was Amanda’s idea to join the show, and he was just along for the ride. And for the most part the crew was just there to film for five days before the wedding. He said the show was pretty much an open book into their lives, but the crew would try and find people they didn’t like to show up and create drama for ratings.
Speaking of drama, Steven brought his own drama to the table, but it was the kind the directors weren’t comfortable with. «They did tell me they would stop filming if I didn’t leave my .45 at home,» Steven said. Steven didn’t understand their apprehension, and claims he had it on him because the father of Amanda’s child always made threats toward him. He carried the gun to call his bluff if the need ever arose. It made the crew nervous, and they claimed they needed special permits. «They didn’t find that as funny as I thought it was.»
Steven told me he was in a dark place when he moved to Orlando, but his friends stayed by his side and pulled him out. Since he and Amanda split, Steven has finished college and is planning to move back to New Jersey. But he hasn’t dated anyone seriously since the split. «I get asked all the time why I’m still single,» Steven said. «Just fate I guess.» He said his relationship with Amanda made it hard for him to trust, and with a bride who faked a pregnancy to try and get jewelry, who can blame him? But for the most part he said he just hasn’t found anyone compatible. «Don’t get me wrong, when we were on good terms she has a good heart and cares. But things and time change people,» Steven said. «I’m not perfect but I didn’t deserve what she did.»
Zillas ever after
Despite their diva dispositions, not all the Zillas were doomed for divorce. In our interview, Porsha told me all but one of the couples on her season of Boot Camp are still together, including Melissa and Chris who just celebrated Melissa’s 30th birthday with a trip to Europe. Porsha is also still with her husband, Byron, although she said marriage is extremely hard work. She said she’s not looking to do another wedding reality series anytime soon, but she’d be happy to talk to WE tv producers about an idea she had for a show about divorce called Free At Last.
