Being a groomsman or a bridesmaid at a wedding can either be a lot of fun or a total nightmare.
I’ve only been on the good side when I’ve been involved in weddings, but I think I might be the exception based on the horror stories I’ve heard…
Take a look at these tweets from men and women who had a lot to say about the weddings they took part in.
1. Whatever it takes.
But she owes you one.

2. It’s ridiculous.
Seems pretty excessive.
Why is being a maid of honor the most expensive thing I’ve done this year, the year that I also bought a whole ass car

3. It’s a real thing.
No doubt about it.
My friend is having her wedding this Saturday and I’m her maid of honor and let me tell ya, Bridezilla is not just a story. ?

Try to keep her under control.

5. A lot of money.
It better be fun!
Did y’all know that being a bridesmaid is expensive as hell? I sure didn’t—-but at least it’s for love??! ?

6. This is no fun!
But you can’t back out at this point…
To some women being a bridesmaid is an “honor” but to me it’s a “nightmare”

7. I’d walk out.
I think one of my worst nightmares is being a bridesmaid for one of my friends and them wanting to do a surprise choreographed dance

8. You kind of have to do it.
Sorry, just the way it is…
Is there a polite way to decline being a bridesmaid or am I absolutely doomed to experience my personal nightmare

10. You’re on a timeline.
Make sure you don’t get ripped off!
Being a bridesmaid is expensive.
I’ll be mad if I spend thousands on someone else’s wedding buying a dress I don’t care for just for you to get divorced. I need a refund if the marriage doesn’t last at least 6 years.

11. Don’t do that.
You’re going to upset someone.

You should only do it once every five years.
