Weird ”bridesmaid contract’ started a non-ending debate online

A ‘pathetic’ contract wrote by a ‘bridezilla’ advising her marriage party of her ‘assumptions’ has started a non-ending debate media.

The lady of the hour, believed to live in the US, has made a list of 37 rules for her 10 bridesmaids specifying what is expected of them ahead of her big day. She said she was provoked to hand out the document after seeing a ‘ton of posts about issues with bridesmaids’ from other newlyweds online.

Take a look at the contract below:

1. I will not try to convince the bride to change anything in her wedding

2. I will not grow sensitive and angry with the bride because I understand that she has a bossy attitude

3. I will not attempt to outdo the bride in any way

4. I will wear the hairstyle the bride chooses for the wedding day

5. I understand that I have to purchase my own dress and shoes and hairstyle for the wedding

6. I understand that the bachelorette party may be a destination getaway

7. I understand that I have to purchase a bachelorette party T-shirt and fund my own trip if it is away

8. I understand that the maid and matron of honour will need help funding some of the events. The wedding and reception are not included

9. I understand that the bride does not want any suggestion and this agreement is on here twice, two different ways because the bride wants it to be clear – only suggestion allowed is a way to get her exact item at a cheaper price

10. I will not drop out of the wedding party for any of the reasons listed above. If I do not like anything listed, I will not sign the contract and I will be replaced. I understand that I do not agree to the above terms it will not ruin the bride and I’s friendship. But if I sign and agree and later want to drop out, then it will ruin our friendship

11. I understand that no friendship to the bride is bigger than anyone in her wedding party and everyone will be treated equally

12. I understand that I may have to do physical activity at the reception and this requires practices provided by the bride

13. No coloured contact lenses allowed

14. No black drawn-on eyebrows or thick drawn-on (matter of fact, revert back to make-up law above)

15. No glossy coloured lipstick allowed (the kind that looks very, very shiny and bright)

16. No colourful nails the day of the wedding. Only colours allowed are American, French or Nudes

17. I will provide the bride with my normal seven-day schedule within five days of signing this contract

18. I will agree to save at least $50 a month for expenses for the next 14 months

19. I will not talk negative about anyone in the wedding

20. I will not gain more than 3kg between now and the wedding

21. I will wear only black or dark brown hair on the day of the wedding (highlights may be accepted with prior approval)

22. I cannot wear any lashes the day of the wedding unless professionally installed

23. I have to attend the bridal shower and bachelorette party, fitting and rehearsals and wedding (only time this can be missed is death or jail, pregnancy over five months and some sickness with recent doctor’s note)

24. I will take care of my skin, hair and nails from now until the wedding

25. The bride will choose my make-up artist the day of the wedding

26. I will agree to wear the dress the bride chooses regardless of my own opinions, style or colour

27. I will not wear any extra accessories, items of clothing or jewellery the day of the wedding except my wedding or engagement ring.

32. I will not bring any outside people, except kids, to any meeting

33. I will not bring my kids to the wedding unless they are a part of the wedding party (no exceptions)

34. I will make sure I have an accountable babysitter the day of all events and I understand that no show for no babysitter will not be an acceptable excuse

35. I will not make any advances towards males in the wedding party

36. I will not date anyone in the wedding party that I wasn’t dating before I signed this contract
