A bride who had decided on short dresses for her bridal party has lashed out at a ‘snobby’ bridesmaid who suggested longer dresses were ‘more wedding appropriate’.
The bride shared photos of her ideal dress options and publicly accused her bridesmaid of being ‘snobby’ – before the bridesmaid hit back with her own side of the story in a wedding shaming Facebook page.
‘Can I shame my bridesmaid for dissing these dress options and being snobby about it?’ The bride, from Florida, wrote.
A bride who had decided on short dresses for her bridal party has lashed out at a bridesmaid who suggested longer dresses were ‘more wedding appropriate’
‘The wedding is at a state park in Florida early October, so pretty casual, and she wants everyone to wear long dresses because it’s “more wedding appropriate” and “we’re not going to BBQ”.
‘I’m not blurring her face because she’s in this group.’
Moments later the bridesmaid hit back, sharing a text exchange between the pair to highlight her side of the story.
‘So I’m here to shame myself as my best friend’s bridesmaid from hell,’ she wrote.

‘I’ve been on her case about what kind of dresses she wants us to wear for her wedding. She’s told me she doesn’t care as long as we’re comfortable and within her colour scheme.
‘The wedding is taking place at a beautiful state park in central Florida in October. I’m from California so our Octobers are actual Falls and hers are humid and unforgiving.
‘So last night I asked for picture references of dresses to go off of.’
Based on the photographs she shared it would seem the bride is opting for either a navy blue or maroon colour scheme for her bridesmaid dresses.
Many of the options were above the knee, which her bridesmaid pointed out might not be ‘wedding appropriate’.
‘It’s not up to you,’ the bride fired back.
By the end of the text message exchange the pair had agreed that it was most important for the ladies to be comfortable on the day, particularly given it was an outdoor event.
‘I’ll probably just stick to one of the ones you sent. When I find one I’ll send you a pic and buy,’ the bridesmaid said.

‘Alright sounds good. Love you,’ the bride replied.
Comments underneath the two posts agreed with the bridesmaid, suggesting they also think short dresses are too casual.
‘Why does the bride think that a difference of opinion in dress length is shameworthy? Seriously? You can’t expect 100 per cent agreement on 100 per cent of all decisions,’ one person said.
‘You literally asked for her opinion and then got mad and shamed her on a group for giving her opinion. You’re an idiot,’ another said.
A third added: ‘Imagine putting your own friend and bridesmaid on blast in front of thousands of people WHERE SHE CAN SEE IT.’
