Bride SLAMS bridesmaid for ruining her wedding photos by holding her bump in pics!
Oh yes she did!
Editor / March 13 2019
A bride has SLAMMED her pregnant bridesmaid for trying to steal the show by holding her bump in the official photos.
Fuming with anger, the anonymous bride, explained her situation on a heated Reddit thread and accused her friend of 'deliberately' trying to be the 'star' of the day as she held her bump, just like Meghan Markle does in pictures.
The bridesmaid - who is referred to as Kate in the post - is seven months pregnant and wore a flowy dress that was fitted under the bust.
'In one of the first photos I noticed Kate was deliberately holding her belly so it was really obvious in the fabric of her dress (think basically every maternity shoot photo ever taken),' she explained.
'I asked her to stop holding her hands to show off her belly and to just pose like everyone else. I had to remind her a few more times before we'd finished taking the wedding party photos.'
After the bride got back from her honeymoon, she noticed that the relationship with Kate had cooled.
Another friend revealed this was because Kate thinks the bride was deliberately trying to make her look fat in the photos by NOT letting her hold her bump.
While many commenters sided with the bride, like one who said, 'I've been pregnant a few times and I didn't stand around holding my belly. That's ridiculous,' others have been more sympathetic towards the pregnant bridesmaid.
'She is probably feeling large and uncomfortable anyway,' said another. 'Haven't you just made her feel even worse. What do you care if she holds her bump? It doesn't change a thing in your photos.'
'It is a natural standing position,' wrote one. 'Pregnant bellies are heavy, and sometimes you just need the extra support. I am just as pregnant as OP's friend, and if I'm standing I'm cradling my belly to take the extra pressure off of my back.'
Meghan Markle has come under fire throughout her pregnancy for cradling her bump in photos - leading many to suggest she is trying to gain sympathy for being pregnant. One Aussie mum labelled her Baby Bump Barbie
'A casual cradling of one’s bump is to be expected,' said Editor Jo Elvin. 'It’s new, it’s exciting and there really is nothing like feeling that thing kick and jump around in there.
'But Meghan’s positioning is always so fixed into one singular, rigid pose that it’s becoming uncomfortable to watch. I’m getting arm aches just looking. It’s all very Baby Bump Barbie.'
