The bride-to-be wanted everyone's attention on her during the wedding and didn't want them to ask her friend about the stillbirth.
It's never easy to cope with a stillbirth, especially after the months of wait, and everyone processes and deals with grief differently. Some move on quicker than others, but it doesn't mean the loss hasn't affected them. What really helps is to have supportive friends and family around you who will help you deal with the loss.
One woman, who just lost her child, realized that her friend who was about to get married had no empathy for her situation. This bride-to-be had a very unreasonable request from her wedding guest and the woman shared the nasty exchange on social media where it soon went viral. The unidentified woman posted the infuriating exchange on a Facebook group called "That's It I'm Wedding Shaming." Screenshots of her messages were posted on Imgur.
First, the woman starts by saying that the interaction she had with a bride had rattled her and she was trying to calm down. That's when it hit her that the way the bride-to-be spoke to her was not okay. "This dumpster fire of a bride is getting married in early February and I would've been heavily pregnant as I was due at the end of February," the resident of Brisbane, Australia wrote. "But my daughter was stillborn in October."
The woman added that it's been a hard time for her and her partner as well. "Up until now everyone has been understanding and kind to us," she said, excluding this woman who was entitled and heartless. She attached screenshots of the exchange, where the bride-to-be asked her if she was still thinking about attending her wedding. "I think maybe you shouldn't. I don't mean to be harsh but I thought you'd be over what happened by now," she said.
"But you cried today just because some lady had a baby and it's just a bit dramatic and lots of people don't know yet because apparently, you aren't ready to tell people." The bride then went on to explain, "I'm trying to be as nice about this as I can but everyone will be asking why you aren't pregnant and I don't want them to be distracted from making me feel special. What happened sucks but I thought you'd had long enough to get over it so it wouldn't be a problem."
The woman couldn't believe someone could be this insensitive, and she took some time to process what she was just told. The bride went on to say that she wanted the wedding to be about her and if she attended the wedding it would be ruined. "So let me get this straight," she responded. "You don't want me at your wedding because the fact that my f****** baby died might ruin YOUR day," she wrote. She then let the bride know that she wouldn't have to be worried because they won't be friends anymore.
The bride had the audacity to say her words were being twisted and that she only meant she wanted everyone to pay attention to her on her wedding day. She then asked her friend again to just announce her stillbirth so people can focus on her now and then they would be able to focus on her wedding. The livid friend said, "You know what... you enjoy your wedding without me."
This was the last straw for the woman who decided to cut ties with the bridezilla. "I hope our friendship is worth all the attention you so desperately need you giant trash pile of a human." The bride went on to call her "selfish" for not being able to get over the stillbirth after two months. "It's not like you knew her," she added insensitively. The OP was done putting up with such crap and said she was glad she realized that her now ex-friend was "trash now so I don't waste any more time speaking to you." In a final clap-back, she told the friend that she would see her fiancé at the divorce party.
