When it comes to weddings, we've heard horrifying tales of brides becoming bridezillas.
But we've never before heard of a bride who tried to rip off her devoted team of bridesmaids – until now, that is.
A former bridesmaid has taken to social media to share the shocking tale of how her friend tried to scam her and five other women out of a hefty sum of money before the big day.
The unnamed woman revealed all in a post on a wedding shaming group on Facebook which has since been shared on Reddit.
She began by explaining that when the bride asked her to be a bridesmaid, she'd already picked out the perfect dress for her to wear.
"The bride had picked out her dress already, one for the maid of honour and one for the bridesmaids," she said. "The dress itself was lovely but a bit expensive at $400 (£315) each since two of us were still in college and the rest had recently graduated.
"I was one of the two still in college so money was super tight."
Thankfully, the maid of honour offered to pay for all of the dresses on her credit card and let the other girls pay her back as and when they could.
However things took a strange turn when the woman went to pick up her dress.
She said: "I wasn't able to go with everyone to pick up the dresses because finals week and planned to go by myself the following weekend. No big deal, the MOH said she would pay for mine on the group trip.
"I get there and the dress fits perfectly. The shop owner scoots off while I'm changing back into my street clothes since she has another client coming in but confirms we're all set.
"As I'm walking out the door, another person working there yells out hey, that will be $200! I was stunned and totally mortified. I apologised and explained how I thought the maid of honour had already paid for it the weekend before."
At this point she claims the shop owner returned to diffuse the situation and confirmed the dress had already been paid for – but it only cost $200, not $400 like the maid of honour had originally said.
"Long story short, the dress was only $200. When I confronted the maid of honour about it, she spilled the beans. Apparently the bride and maid of honour plotted together to charge us double to help pay for the bride's dress.
"I let the rest of the bridesmaids know and four of us dropped out of the wedding immediately."
People on Reddit were appalled by the tale and were quick to slam the two women's behaviour.
One person wrote: "That's not a bridezilla that's a criminal."
Another commented: "Talk about being a greedy b****! I wouldn't want to go to my so-called friend's wedding if I knew she tried to scam me. Backstabber."
A third added: "Gross. Sociopath in action."
