A bride-to-be has set fire to a rage after she lashed out at her maid of honor for failing to lose weight on time at the wedding.
The matter came to the fore this week on Mamsnet After a would-be bride, writing as scj96, angered the fact that her maid of honor had failed to lose weight before her wedding day.
It all started 18 months ago when she went dress shopping with her bridesmaids. “We saw a bridesmaid dress that we all loved, but it turns out they only did it up to a size 16,” the bride explained. “My best friend who is my maid is a big girl so it didn’t look like it was going to work.”
According to the post the maid of honor encouraged her to get the clothes “off her back and without hesitation” because “she was going to lose weight for the wedding anyway.” Although the bride said she didn’t need to, the friend insisted that it was okay so they bought them right there and then.
However, the bride claims that a year later, her friend has “made almost no effort to try to lose the weight.” Though the bride hasn’t picked it up with her yet, she resented during a girls’ weekend after being “quite clear” that her friend was “even bigger now.”
The bride was particularly concerned after noticing that the maid of honor was “not controlling her eating at all.” With only 9 months left in the wedding, the bride said she was getting “angry” over the situation because she might have to pay for new clothes.
While the bride looked annoyed at her maid of honour for failing to lose the required weight, many commented on social media that it was the bride who stepped out of line by reacting like this.
“You think he chose to be overweight?” Written by SausagePourHomme. “How would you feel if your “friend” did this to you. Took you out shopping with very skinny guys and made you feel low because they only have too little clothes. Maybe she thought she couldn’t say no ! “
Meanwhile, Stokey highlighted the fact that “the maid of honor can wear a different outfit for bridesmaids” and “you can’t force someone to lose weight. She’s probably feeling really bad about it.” Is what I think.”
FishcakesWithTooMuchCoriander said: “You should have recognized that her aspiration to lose weight had no guarantee that it would happen. Buying bridesmaids’ dresses in advance up until now was probably foolish. All kinds of things could have easily changed in that time.” Huh.”
Elsewhere TigerLilyTail commented “Looks like he had good intentions but it didn’t. It can be hard for people to lose weight. Just have a backup plan, but don’t mention it until the date approaches. It’s just There is a dress. Friendship is more important.”
Nohohank continued: “You shouldn’t have bought clothes that didn’t fit…. hardly your best friend if you didn’t listen to him.” He continued: “You have no right to be angry with your friend for being fat and ‘moderating her food’. That’s a really useless comment!”
“Your poor friend,” it means nothing written. “It’s going to be the best of times to go shopping with people who are skinnier than you. She probably felt like she had to go with this outfit when everyone else said they liked them. It would have been hard to say no.” He notes: “Maybe she doesn’t want to change or there are other things going on? Either way there are too many solutions with a sensitive chat that isn’t about her losing weight.”
According to the 2021 YouGov body image studyOf course, 51 percent of Americans say they feel pressured to have a certain body type. Yet it is women who suffer the most from this concern, with 60 percent of women surveyed saying they feel completely or somewhat pressured to have a particular body type, compared to only 42 percent of men.
