Editor / June 04 2019
A bride has been SLAMMED for wanting to ditch her maid of honour for NOT losing all her baby weight - three weeks after the birth!
The woman explained in a Facebook post that she was worried her friend wouldn't fit into her bridesmaid dress and ‘still looks pregnant’ with just three weeks to go until her wedding day.
She said she was going to refuse to make more alterations to the dress because she would prefer to swap her for a friend who wasn't as big.
But when the bride-to-be asked if ‘would be wrong’ to replace her in the online post, the response was fast and very emphatic!
Hundreds of people criticised her, with several saying she was the ‘worst friend in the world’ and others saying that she was 'mean and evil. Your friend should just walk away from you.'
The bride wrote: ‘So my friend who is my maid of honor in my wedding recently gave birth and she hasn’t lost the baby weight.
'She still has like a little over three weeks to lose the weight, but I’m not confident she will. She may not even fit her dress. ‘I refuse to have it altered again. It was already altered multiple times for her and she said she’d fit into it.
‘My question is if on the day of the wedding she doesn’t fit the dress would it be wrong to have someone else take her place? I have someone in mind.
'She said she has a back up dress and I’m saying hell no to that. I’m not fat shaming but come on. ‘My wedding is only one day and I’m not having it ruined by her or her baby weight.’
In the comments, people were seriously shocked by her words. ‘I hate this t**t, sounds like the mom wins in this situation, ditch that loser bride friend,’ said one.
‘Imagine thinking that someone’s baby fat will ruin your wedding,’ said another. ‘The fat shaming is HORRIBLE. But also, your bridesmaids are supposed to be the people you love standing with you, not mannequins for photos,’ added someone else.
And one follower admitted that she couldn't wait for the bride-to-be to fall pregnant and then weeks after giving birth strapping her self into a tight dress and heels...
‘Hell its been 18 years since my last baby and I’m still struggling with that baby weight,’ said one.
