We are all familiar with the legend of a ‘bridezilla.’ You have most likely encountered one somewhere along the line, or still will. There is no point in trying to convince a bridezilla of anything that she has not thought of herself. So, we avoid her wrath by fulfilling each of her demands. When is it time to draw the line with our honorary bridezillas?
Weddings are wondrous occasions, full of laughter and excitement for the life the happy couple is about to embark on. In today’s age. It is not uncommon for a wedding to be based around the future wedding album that you can show off to anyone who is willing. This is where our story today begins. With the vanity of a bridezilla who cared only for how her pictures looked in the end.
Our story today starts off on a happy note according to the Reddit thread it was posted. It is the day of a glorious wedding, and we find ourselves in the bride’s room with a gaggle of bridesmaids and their “queen” bride. The bride, sips on champagne while they get their hair and makeup done. The main characters of our story is the bride, and one of her closest friends, a cancer survivor.
In a post made on Reddit, the cancer survivor wrote,
“I am very good friends with the bride, let’s call her Karen for simplicity. She got engaged about 1.5 years ago and immediately asked me to be a bridesmaid which I was thrilled about (she was my maid of honor for context). To make a long story short I got some real bad news in the past year and had to undergo radiation and chemotherapy.”
This type of treatment can be highly traumatic to the body, and most people suffer the symptom of hair loss. Our honorary cancer survivor lives to tell the tale, but her hair did not. You might think that most best friends would have your back if you were in this situation. But, on this occasion, Karen (the bride) was not there for her friend. In her post, our cancer survivor explained.

The Reddit post
“About 2 weeks ago Karen called me and told me she was going to take me out to celebrate my remission and end of treatment and had a special surprise for me. I agree and we meet up.”
Why would she assume that Karen had any judgment toward her trauma of hair loss? She had, in fact, been there to help our survivor maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, regardless of the chemo. The thread continues…
We go to a spa which was super nice and enjoy some skin treatments, massages, and general pampering. At the end of the day she takes me to a special hair salon which specializes in high quality wigs. I am a little taken aback by this because Karen knows that a lot of the work I have been involves psychological treatment in cancer patients and avoiding the shame associated with hair loss for instance. I politely go through the appointment and even try on some wigs although I was quite upset honestly.”
Apparently, Karen tried to offer to buy her a wig. Our cancer survivor was very disappointed in her friend, she knew about the psychological damage that hair loss causes, and that she had undergone some counseling sessions so she could avoid that self-loathing of having a bald head. She was bigger than a wig, so she refused Karen’s offer.
The let down
It did not take very long, but by the end of the day, Karen had called her up and told her that there were too many people attending the bridal party. She told the Reddit poster that she could not come anymore. This left our cancer survivor absolutely gutted. So she added to her post,
