    @jonnae2015:  my god I would KILL to see photos from the mermaid class of everyone trying to look sexy while in sopping wet matching wigs. I hope someone will be the mole and snitch out. Of course I don’t want to doxx the bride, blur the faces but just thinking about it makes me feel such joy.

    @jonnae2015:  Literally the BEST part of this thread is where you stood up for yourself and decided to end the friendship. We don’t see a lot of confident, healthy behavior on here and it’s so refreshing!

    I was invited to be a bridesmaid because I introduced the bride to the groom. She selected a very expensive bridesmaid dress – like 1K+ – and fired the entire group of bridesmaids when none of us could afford to spend that much on something we’d wear once. Felt a little awkward but it worked out – she found a richer group of friends and I saved 1K.

    I Googled mermaid classes in Las Vegas and OMG. Your ex-friend sounds like a real trip. I can’t believe anybody would go along with her nonsense!! Insisting bridesmaids wear a thong is disgusting!! She needs her head examined.

    @bubbacat:  Wow that is insane! Good for all of you for standing up to her. Really incredible that she chose to fire all of you rather than finding something affordable or paying for them herself. I’m certain you saved more than 1K – I’m picturing a whole slew of events that the bridesmaids would be expects to pay for. Oops, there goes the down payment for your house so you can be my wedding…
