Bride feels betrayed after her close friend reveals pregnancy before her wedding.
A bride-to-be has taken to Reddit to share her frustration after finding out her close friend and bridesmaid will be six months pregnant on her big day The Daily Mail reports. Posting on the popular website, she asked readers whether she was right to be angry or if her reaction to the news was entirely selfish.
A Change Of Plans
The bridesmaid in question was responsible for planning the bachelorette party which the bride now worries will be changed to accomodate the pregnancy. “This bridesmaid was also planning my super secret bachelorette party that I know no details of, but I’m assuming it involved drinking that will probably either be changed or cancelled,” she said. The bride says she believes that members of the bridal party who become pregnant should immediately tell the bride due to the impact it can have on the day, from the organising of the ceremony, to the dresses and photographs. Despite attempting to explain her outrage, the post has since been deleted after a stream of comments criticising the bride for being a ‘bridezilla.’

Life On Hold
Responses were quick to label the bride’s expectations as selfish. “It’s good that you’re entertaining the idea that this reaction is selfish,” wrote one commenter. “It means there’s hope you won’t bridezilla all over the place.” “You can’t ask someone to put their life on hold for your wedding,” wrote another. “You are being selfish.” Others pointed out that expecting someone to share news of their pregnancy immediately was unreasonable. “Many people wait until the first trimester is over to tell people…So no, your bridesmaid was not obligated to tell you anything.”
We think the whole thing is just ridiculous when both women have something exciting and wonderful to celebrate. If a pregnant bridesmaid is the only thing the bride has to worry about, she’s doing pretty well!
