The "bridezilla" character is often exaggerated in movies and reality shows, but anyone who has ever worked with a bride or groom firsthand knows that weddings can often make people...weird. Of course, if someone you love is getting married, your goal should be to support them and help them have the dream wedding they've always desired. However, sometimes it's important to set up boundaries and know how to say "no" too. When people get caught up in the excitement of a day that's "all about them," they can often forget that a lot of people were sacrificing their own time and money to be there.
So, when a recent Reddit user consulted the internet's moral compass, "Am I the As*hole" for advice on a wedding-related predicament with a close friend, people were quick to help.
I have a very close friend, J, we have known each other for over 20 years, lived together, talk regularly, supported each other through ups and downs and since we both lost our parents have said how much we regard each other as family. Truly, we have always said how we feel like sisters.
J is getting married next year, to a great guy and I'm thrilled for her. She has another friend she has known since school, this friend B is not a great friend. She was not supporting of J's engagement, was mean about J's choice of outfit as it isn't a traditional white dress and said she doesn't want to be part of the wedding party as she doesn't want to be 'the fun police'.
