Bridezilla's Demanding Wedding Email Goes Viral
Biggest bridezilla ever?
An anonymous email was forwarded to Gawker this week, and it included the insolent demands of a bossy bride-to-be. This woman takes "bridezilla" to a whole new level, addressing her wedding party as though they were her lowly interns.
"You all have a big roll [sic] in this wedding, so before we continue I’m going to be setting some ground rules…"
If you're in this woman's bridal party, you better make sure you don't have anything planned during, oh, let's say, pretty much all of 2013:
"I would like everyone to send me any dates they are going away or planning to go away after February so if your [sic] going away in January I don't care. I want any dates from February to the day of our wedding in August, that way we know not to plan something when your away. But after this week the dates are set in stone."
This should be a fun wedding.
Bing: Are you planning a wedding? Here's how to do it right.
And if you can't afford the honor of being this woman's bridesmaid, well, tough crap:
"Also if money is tight and you cant afford to contribute to say the bachelorette party or wont be able to afford a dress etc then [my sister] and Myself don't have time to deal with that, I'm sorry."
That's "Myself." With a capital M.
"This includes flights as well, everyone knows the states where the parties are going to be held so if you won't be able to afford a flight then that means you cant make a party which ultimately means I can't have you as a bridesmaid… if you think by affordable its going to be a $25 forever 21 dress then your going to the wrong wedding."
A few other amusing demands:
"I don't have time to wait around for responses, everyone has their phone on them, it shouldn't take you more than a day to get back to me…"
"A few girls live out of town so if there is going to be a problem with coming to either one then I need to know now because after this week I don't want to be surprised."
"Also if you accept this honor another thing is that you need to be available, I'm not going to harass you with wedding stuff every hour of everyday but if its something important and it takes you a week even 2-3 days to get back to me seeeee ya!"
The email, in its entirety, can be read here.

How to flag her little fibs. By Laura Tedesco
A new study on attraction may help explain why fashions change.
As a general rule, any island that offers great weather year-round is going to attract the most visitors in the winter (high season) when we’re all trying to escape the snow. Once summer rolls around, many islands see a sharp drop-off in tourism since many people have beach weather right in their own backyards.
And how you can attack the issues together.
