Every bride wants the perfect wedding: starting from the guest list and the x-tiered cake to the gorgeous venue and the magical atmosphere. However, real-life isn’t perfect and there are no perfect weddings. Far from it! But if you demand perfection, then you’ve got to be the perfect bride to all of your guests and bridesmaids, too.
Unfortunately, the harsh truth is that not all brides are wholesome, joyful, and loving—some have got plenty of entitlement to go around that’s making some guests wonder whether to skip the happy occasion altogether. We’re not talking about your regular “we prefer wine over flowers” deal. Oh no! It’s the kind of entitlement and lists of demands that you’re likely to see on the legendary ‘Choosing Beggars’ subreddit.

With wedding season in full swing, you’re likely to get invited to a wedding or two this summer. So here’s a list of posts made by entitled brides that will make you glad that your loved ones and friends are nowhere near as bad. Remember to upvote the pics that you think should to act as an example of what to avoid doing in life and let us know about the biggest bridezillas you’ve ever encountered in your lives, dear Pandas.
Anna and Sarah from The Wedding Society shared with Bored Panda that the pandemic has shifted some wedding trends away from materialism and toward a different way to celebrate the happy day. “We’re all being forced to reinvent what a wedding looks like and often now that means toned down, simplified and meaningful. Honestly, if people are looking to go with the trend of a big, gaudy, expensive wedding, that boat has well and truly sailed,” they said. Read on for the rest of the interview.

“The new trend that we’re constantly seeing (and which we believe is here to stay) is having a day that is filled with meaning and feeling, rather than things,” Anna and Sarah pointed out to Bored Panda that current trends show people moving away from the things we’ve read in this list.
The wedding experts also shared with me their wisdom on how to approach situations where the happy couple might have very specific demands of their guests.

“As a guest, if you’re invited to a wedding where there is a specific code of conduct, dress, or gift, you’re ultimately going to have to respect what is being asked of you or decline to attend,” they said. However, there is a ‘but.’
“If the marrying couple are close enough to you, you should feel comfortable being honest in a kind way as to your reasons. And if the couple are the people that you know and love, they’ll understand,” Anna and Sarah noted that your relationship with the couple really does count for something.

During an earlier interview, Anna and Sarah from The Wedding Society went into detail about the various aspects of weddings and perfection with me. They put it very simply: instead of focusing on all of the tiny details and trying to control everything, you should shine the spotlight on the marriage itself. Because that’s all that really matters.
“Trust us—you’re only going to truly enjoy the day if you’re focusing on what matters—the marriage. Everything else is just details,” they told Bored Panda earlier.

The duo from The Wedding Society suggested that brides shouldn’t obsess over a single thing, even one as important as a wedding dress. “The concept of a ‘perfect wedding dress’ really only matters deeply to those who are probably focusing on the wrong thing,” they said that we should all step back, reevaluate the situation, and remember what’s truly valuable here.

“There are literally thousands of incredible dresses directly available to you—it’s almost a physical impossibility for only one to be right for you and, if that’s how you’re feeling, it’s probably worth stepping back, taking a deep breath, and re-shifting your priorities,” they said. Similarly, focusing on gifts isn’t the way to go either because it takes away the focus from the celebration of love and shifts it towards material things and social status.

According to Anna and Sarah, too many people are “caught up in the party and the image” because they want to impress their social circles. Letting go of the need to impress takes a lot of stress off your shoulders and leaves more time to spend with the people that are supposed to mean the most to us. Entitlement and arrogance serve no one, especially not the person using both as a way to try and get the ‘perfect’ wedding.
