16 Utterly Insulting Things Wedding Guests Have Said To The Bride

Honestly, WTF???

On an occasion as momentous as the wedding day, the last thing the newlyweds need is to receive rude, hurtful and otherwise unnecessary comments from their guests.

But that didn’t stop some family and friends from speaking their minds anyway. Below, 16 insulting remarks brides heard from their guests on the big day via the secret-sharing app Whisper

  • 1
    My nan asked "should you really be eating that?" I was having my wedding cake
  • 2
    On my wedding day, my husband's aunt asked him, "couldn't you find someone of your own race?" in their own language so I couldn't understand.
  • 3
    I was told that I was too young, it wouldn't last, and that we were ruining people's holiday because we got married at midnight on New Year's Eve.
  • 4
    On my wedding day, my husband's aunt told me "you know, you don't look pregnant you just look fat". I was 36 and a half weeks pregnant. She wonders why I can't stand her.
  • 5
    My mother in law introduced me as my husband's first wife.
  • 6
    My mother in law told me my dress was hideous and I'm going to be a terrible wife.
  • 7
    My mother helped me into my dress, and then sighed and told me it was a shame that I'd bought such an ugly one. So I changed. I wore a bright yellow sundress instead. Kinda regret it.
  • 8
    I was told (by grandmother): It's a shame you didn't bother losing weight. You could be beautiful
  • 9
    I'm not married. However, my cousin Danielle got married and her father, in his drunken state, said "Erin [her sister] was always my favourite daughter" -- this was during his toast! 😭🙁

    People were placing bets on how long my marriage would last.

    Father in law said he wished it was the ex sitting in the crowd.

    My mother in law told the person that was marrying us that it will be easier for us to get a divorce since we did it at the court house.
  • 13
    My grandmother told me that he's ugly and that we're gonna have ugly babies
  • 14
    One of my "friends" told me my hair looked "really bad" on my wedding day. I lost a lot of respect for her that day.
  • 15
    Just because my husband is a foreigner, they said I'm a gold digger.
  • 16
    My wedding day was just a mess. No one said anything to me, about me, that was rude. But my father started telling my groom how deformed and messed up I was in hopes to stop the wedding.
