Choosing your bridesmaids should be a pretty simple process, right? Surely you just pick the people that mean the most to you, who you can rely on and trust, and who won't turn their back on you when you inevitably becoming a wedding-crazed nightmare?
Apparently though, these days its not that simple. And one bride's quest to allocate her bridesmaid spots has actually gone to insane heights...
Stylist reports that an anonymous woman, aged 22, is holding a legit auction (with real money and everything) so her best mates can bid for a chance to become her bridesmaid. Wrap your head around that one for a second.
The sister of this clearly delusion bride posted about the bizarre happenings on Reddit, and you can kind of understand her frustrations. The sister describes the bride as "high maintenance", "immature" and "very spoiled".
She wrote, "She still hasn't chosen her bridesmaids. Instead, she has sent out dozens of... invitations, to various girls. It's an invite to attend and participate in a bidding auction on the six spots in her bridal party. Whichever six of all these chicks bid the most will be the bridesmaids." Yes, this is real life guys. Someone is actually that ludicrous.
The maid of honour will be chosen depending on who spends the most money, because obviously. Now where is this money going you might ask? Well it's going straight into the wedding and honeymoon pot, duh.
The sister also wrote that the bride "mainly only associates with rich people, or more accurately people with rich families since none of these young 20s girls have ever held a job in their life unless it's at their parents' investment firm. So most of the people she sent these to have the money for this kind of thing.
"But I know she also sent a few to older friends of hers, like from high school or earlier, who she's not only lost touch with as they got older but also were from lower income backgrounds."
Naturally, the sister thinks this scheme is wildly inappropes, but explains her mum is now having at go at her for not supporting the bride's wishes. Sis, I've heard you can actually divorce your family FYI.
If I was on the receiving end of one of those 'invitations' to bid, I'd bin it, keep quiet and if asked just pretend it got lost in the post.
