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.

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.

If you really believe that, you would support BLM. We show the lives we care about by holding murderers accountable. Whites get justice, Black people don’t.

So, I don't like the Black Lives Matter movement, but I'm not one of those who dislikes it just because. I'm not an "ALL Lives Matter" person. I absolutely understand that it means, "Hey, a**holes, you have GOT to understand that black lives matter!" I get that. But the movement itself - their focus on shootings of black people by police with evidence that does not support that black people are killed at any higher rate than white people is deluded the US and the world. They are fighting against something that isn't a problem, and not focusing on the things that truly impact black people in significant ways. And they go about it by jumping the gun. ANY black person killed by the police and they are saying it was unjustified - even if it was, and/or even if they don't have all the facts. So, any black person killed by the police they think is wrong. (But it's only ever unjustified if it's a black person - and it's always unjustified.) But this person is not thinking that, so f**k her

I totally get that the bride and groom are entitled to their beliefs. I also get that the vendor is entitled to theirs. The bride and groom DO NOT get to play cancel culture. That is not right regardless of which side does it. I believe that yes ALL lives matter- however, everyone's rights end where the other person's begin. So - sorry bride and groom. You are infringing on that vendor's freedom of speech.

This one is just stupid. I'm a person of colour who does not support the BLM movement at all, but just because we have different opinions on things, doesnt mean we cant do business. It's a damn wedding...you can be the grand wizard of the KKK for all I care, just do your job at my wedding, mind your manners and opinions aside, it should be a blast. END!

The KKK and BLM aren’t comparable at all. I wouldn’t want a member of a legitimate terrorist group that has a history of murdering people at my wedding, but someone who simply supports a movement I don’t agree with is a different matter. It’s more comparable to having a Republican at your wedding when you’re a Democrat.

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.
