Weddings are one thing. But the juicy wedding anecdotes that get passed around from guests in real life is another. From fussy bridezillas to nightmarish decor, hilarious invitations, accidents, "what da heck was dat" moments, and even full-blown fights… Some people live for the nuptial gossip.

And the chances are they belong to this quirky online community that deliberately targets some shame-worthy weddings. Captioned "let’s shame those weddings," the subreddit r/weddingshaming is the online home for roasting wedding themes, brides, grooms, wedding parties, in-laws, outlaws, guests, Uncle Bob, vendors, and more. “You name it, we shame it!” states the community’s description.

Created in 2018, the controversial subreddit now has 151k members who love digging through anything wedding-related. So let’s take a look at what they dug up and shamed down below.

This chick is lucky to get any sort of proposal from anyone. "I love him so much!" sounds more like "I love his benefits so much!"

My hubby proposed while I was sweaty, in eyeglasses, wearing bike shorts, and cramming for exams... in my dorm room. It's the marriage, not the wedding'/ proposal, folks!

If she prefers a traditional romantic setting and wants a do-over, fine. But posting that "he proposed WRONG" and that she's embarrassed is judgmental and narrow-minded. I hope she's worth the "benefits".

This stinks of the idea that the proposal is all about her and what she can brag to her friends about later. A proposal should be a special moment between two people rather than an event which makes one (or both) parties feel like a celebrity for a fleeting moment.

I feel bad for the guy, not so much for the girl. She's a gold digger, like seriously? In front of an airplane? Dude, do you know how lucky you are to get that opportunity? I know people who propose in a freaking McDonalds, get a life.

Dynein

Well, there's definitely WRONG places... like proposing to a very private introvert right in front a large crowd with everyone watching. Or proposing to someone romantic, who envies people with showy proposals, by the toilets of a rest stop. If you don't have the awareness or respect to factor in your partners basic desires when proposing, you probably shouldn't get married anyway. It shouldn't require mind reading, though.

StrawberryParfait

She's clearly disappointed in the first proposal, as he didn't seem to put much thought into what she would find romantic. This story should not be made public, though. Just ignore the first attempt, then only speak of the second one on social media, if you must.

That's not the point. Being proposed to should be the romantic thing, in (nearly) any venue. My husband proposed to me at my house next to a new Weber (showing he would be a provider).

He should run - run far, run fast. I know someone who dealt with this very thing - the woman wanted the man to propose to her in a VERY particular way - right down to how he asked her to marry him, where, what day, what time of day, etc. It was just the tip of the iceberg in how controlling and manipulative she really was - they got engaged but then he broke it off because of her behavior.

The world of wedding shaming offers real-life drama combined with sassiness and a fair share of roasting, all in the comfort of a virtual environment. Groups like the “That’s it, I’m wedding shaming” Facebook group, which has 80.6k members, and the r/weddingshaming subreddit with 153k members have become somewhat of a phenomenon in the past 2 years. It turns out there’s something universally irresistible about ripping apart someone’s supposed best day of their lives.

Luna, the moderator from Australia at “That’s it, I’m wedding shaming,” told Wired that “There’s something about weddings, whether you’re invited or not, that just brings out the worst in people.” She suggested that this is precisely what gives the group a feel similar to reality TV shows.

This online shaming trend became a hit back in August 2018 when a post from a group shamed a bride for asking her guests to pay about $1,500 towards her wedding. The story went viral after it was shared by model and social media star Chrissy Teigen.

But many people are not so positive about this new trend, claiming that “beneath those silly nuptial stories lies an online playground of hate.”

Bored Panda reached out to Darlene Lancer, clinical psychologist and the author of “Codependency for Dummies” and “Conquering Shame and Codependency.” Darlene said that wedding haters and shamers are not members of a “hate group,” according to the FBI.

She explained: “hate groups” direct their hatred against a particular race, religion, gender, ethnic group, or people of a particular sexual orientation. The FBI investigates these hate groups to protect democracy and individual liberty.” In that sense, wedding shamers are not one of them.

Darlene further explained that “Ironically, public displays of extravagant and ostentatious weddings may also be fueled by shame where the emphasis is on impressing other people of the family’s wealth and status.” Such behavior can be a compensation for not feeling adequate or sufficiently respected.

Shaming others, the clinical psychologist suggests, is a way of protesting and ridding themselves of shame people have inside, which is often hidden and unconscious.

“It may be fueled by anger and envy because of the widening discrepancy between classes of haves and have-nots. Aggression and envy are also defenses to shame,” Darlene concluded.
