Weddings can be very stressful, especially for the bride. There's no way around it. And while it's understandable that they might get a little angry, some go beyond what's normal and turn into total bridezillas.

We've put together a list of our favourite scary stories from Reddit that will make you laugh, cringe, and think it might be best to just run away.

So, without further ado, here is a list of Reddit's most shocking Bridezilla stories.

The Vegan Bridezilla

One bride may have taken this idea too far when she told her Facebook friends and family that she plans to ban anyone who eats meat from her wedding.

The bride, who asked not to be named, said she was tired of people trying to "guilt trip" her into inviting them to her wedding, even though she had made it clear from the beginning that no omnivores were welcome.

Get another job!

This future bride quit her job so she could focus on planning her wedding. You can plan your wedding at work in secret, but it's a lot like having a full-time job. But then she expected her fiance to get a second job to pay for her big day.

Party of Polygraphs

This blushing bride found out that someone had posted her dress code requirements on Reddit. She was mad, but she also got even by announcing a polygraph party to find out who did the dirty on her.

No Way, Jose!

On your wedding day, it's natural to want to be the centre of attention, and guess what? You will be! You don't have to do what this Reddit bridezilla did and tell one of her guests they couldn't wear their engagement ring or talk about it.

Hair Raising

I'm going to be a bridesmaid at a wedding soon. I cut off all my hair without asking the bride, which made her very upset because I didn't ask her first.

The Bridezilla Whose Big Day Was Stolen by Death

Births and deaths tend to take place at the worst times. But this is something that everyone with a clear head has come to accept. But not this crazy bride. Definitely not this crazy bride.

This bridezilla screamed and stomped her feet in a temper tantrum because her grandmother had the nerve to die a few hours before her wedding. She said that the seating arrangement would be messed-up because there would be a big empty space. We can’t even begin to understand THIS!

The pregnant family member

It's natural to think about what your wedding guests will look like in your pictures before they've even been taken, but people change. Whether they do it on purpose, by accident, or because they are pregnant.

But amazingly, one bridezilla wouldn't let a pregnant family member be in her wedding pictures. A Reddit user said that the bridezilla got furious and kicked her cousin out of the wedding because she would be pregnant in the pictures.

The Bride Who Wants Something Big

Some brides worry so much about how their pictures will look that they even ask their bridesmaids to change how they look. As an example...

One Reddit user said — the bride asked all of her bridesmaids to dye their hair brown because she wanted to be the only one with blonde hair. Tell us a story more ridiculous than this we’ll wait.

The Unreasonable Request for a Bachelorette Party

One of the most anticipated parts of a wedding, besides the wedding itself, is the bachelor/bachelorette party, which for some people can be just as fancy as the wedding itself.

This bridezilla threw a huge fit because none of her bridesmaids could afford to go to Las Vegas for her "dream bachelorette party." 

The Bride Who Couldn't Get Down the Aisle Without Her Shoes

Most of the time, a bride's outfit is well thought out in every way. From her underwear to her veil. But there are some details that aren't quite as obvious... Like her shoes, which are often hidden by her dress. But when this bride found out that hers had disappeared, she refused to get married.
