I thought it was going to be all cute stuff like “We’re so happy to be sharing your special day with us” “We love you and can’t wait to be there for you.” I mean I get it. some of these are common sense. But *telling* the bride to shower her bridesmaids with gifts?

Bridesmaidzilla… is that a thing? It is now.

Those bridesmaids are more demanding than most brides I know

I think these all seem pretty standard. They’re just being honest! But it should be something the bride already knows, not have to be told.

I think the delivery is poor and the article rubs me the wrong way, but these are common themes on the Bee.

@Kandiss16:  I feel like the bridesmaids are saying they’ll do xyz but only if they get pampered and get all these gifts in return.

I did all these things and my bridesmaids and I never fought.  I personally don’t think the author is saying “give me a gift,” she’s saying she wants something personal, which I completely agree with (I made my gifts for my girls).  However, if that was an actual letter between a bride and a bridesmaid, I think it’d be a little weird.

@classical_wolf:  +1. If I had to do ALL of those things on that list then I wouldnt have a bridal party.

I really don’t see what the issue is. These are supposed to be the women who are nearest and dearest to you. Why wouldn’t you want to do everything on this list and more?

Edit: I did everything on the list (except the groomsmen thing because it didn’t apply), and paid for pro make-up, and paid for their overnight accomodations, and treated them to lunch for each dress fitting or other wedding-related fun they were able to make it to, etc. It’s not that hard.

I’ve seen this a few times.  I don’t really like it.  A lot of these things I’m planning to do anyways but if my bridesmaid presented me with this letter it would make me not want to do any of it!
