For the happy couple, the wedding day is one of the biggest events of their lives. Months of saving, planning and stressing go into it, so it’s understandable, to some degree, when the couple forgets that the entire world doesn’t revolve around them.

This cash-strapped bride-to-be thought that she could cut costs by getting hair and makeup done for free

This story, originally shared on Reddit’s Choosing Beggars, is a classic example of a bride falling for her own hype. Reaching out to a ‘friend’ (a pro stylist in London whom she hasn’t spoken to for 10 years), the cash-strapped bride believes that an invite to her small wedding, as well as the opportunity to add photos of this gorgeous creature to a ‘portfolio,’ should be more than enough in exchange for a 3-hour drive to do bridal makeup and hair for free.

The stylist, in the process of setting up her own salon, should consider herself lucky for such a generous free work offer! Or not. Showing an admirable level of tolerance and polite understanding at the bride’s entitled requests, she calmly explains why she most likely will not be driving down to Yeovil to work for free for a woman that she hardly knows, who only contacts her when she needs something.

When nobody responded, she tried asking a makeup artist ‘friend’ instead


We’ve had our fair share of bridezilla stories here at Bored Panda, there is just something about weddings that can make otherwise kind, rational people into selfish, entitled monsters. Perhaps we simply take the whole thing way too seriously? All those fairytales have convinced us that for one day at least, the couple is a little king and queen who can do absolutely anything they want. Sure, it’s a wonderful day for you guys, and all the best to you. But for those of us who aren’t involved, we don’t really care!
