I heard this on the radio this morning-this is serious-some chick really made her bridesmaids do this-I totally wish I would have had this I would have woken them all up on April 1st and played an April Fool's Joke on them (since it was the morning after the party)

*Bridesmaid’s Contract*
Hello my beautiful bridesmaids! Let me just say again how happy I am that you are going to be a part of my special day! Below are just a few guidelines for the wedding that I’d like you to review, please initial by each point, sign at the end and send back to me. Just want to make sure they’re aren’t any surprises! The planning bride is a happy bride!
Thanks a bunch! Love ya!

(Sarah and Anne only for the point below…)
______ I will join a well-known weight loss program and through whatever means necessary will lose the desired amount of weight as previously discussed with Carol at the time when asked to be a bridesmaid in her wedding.

______ I swear to attend all showers, (lingerie, kitchen, bridal & bachelorette) to arrive in a timely manner and do everything in my power to support and “be there” for the bride.

______ I will purchase the Bill Levkoff style # 464 dress below in Pistachio/Ivory within 3 weeks of today.

      I can't even imagine telling my friends they needed to lose weight for my wedding-that is incredibly arrogant.

        No way!!! well, by brother did tell me I needed to loose weight if I wanted to come out in his wedding! I went on herbalife and popped pills all day, but I lost it! (i am being very sarcastic).

        I would never do this, well maybe the "pregnancy" part, haha. But I would ask that they please not be ready to deliver within 4 weeks of my wedding so plan accordingly, haha! (side note, my SIL says that she only has summer babies so my wedding is throwing her off!)

          That is hysterical--- I'm totally ripping off that "contract"---- I think I'm going to make a "Will you be my bridesmaid?" card for them and put this as the body of the card with the question at the very end! :) They will crack up----

            That is so funny! I recently saw an episode of Bridezillas where the bride had regular weigh-ins for her bm's and at a rehearsal dinner she made them plates with teeny tiny portions, then locked up the leftovers in the fridge with a chain & padlock so they couldn't eat more - and she was serious! Some people are nuts!! That was a good laugh though, thanks.

              Jamy- I saw that episode too! FI and I watched that every Sunday night because it was so funny to see how freaked out the brides got. But you know what---- I kind of understand them now that we're seeing people's reactions to a DW and after reading the posts on here. I bet those brides had the same issues we've all commented on---- horror BM/GM stories, bad family member reactions, etc...--- and the "Bridezilla" came out at the end from the stress of dealing with everyone else!

              Wonder what happened to that show? That, and Platinum Weddings? We were totally hooked on both of them!

                OMG!!! I can't believe that girl was serious!! And even more shocking would be if any of those BM's actually signed it!! Holy cow....

                It IS funny though. . .would be a great prank to play for sure. lol!
