If you're familiar with the concept of a wedding, then there's also a strong chance you're familiar with the concept of a "Bridezilla". No, it's not a sequel to Sharknado (not yet, anyway), it's when a woman getting married loses her cool to the point of becoming a full-on crazy-eyed monsterlady.
Of course, it's not only the brides who can lose their marbles in the run up to a wedding; sometimes the grooms can lose their shit as well. On other occasions, the bride and groom team up to cause maximum chaos. Just have a look at the list below - you'll see what we mean...
1 The couple who received a cash gift...then asked for more
We would love to track down this bride and groom and just ask them...why?
2 The couple who basically set up a wine-tasting business at their own wedding
Come to our wedding! Have most of a glass of wine! Pay for your own taco & wine tasting! Literally give us your money! It'll be great!
3 The bride who called the cops on a wedding dress shop
One poor Reddit user posted about a bride they had once served. The bride came in, ordered a dress, and then came to pick it up later that year, at which point they realised she was five months pregnant and was certainly not going to fit into the dress.
Long story short: she demanded to try the dress on anyway, threw a hissy fit about how horrible it was, then called the police claiming the people in the dress shop had caused her to have a panic attack. What a cool lady.

4 The bride who slapped her friend for refusing to "wipe"
Drunk bride requires assistance going to the bathroom. Drunk bride asks bridesmaid to "wipe" once she's finished peeing. Bridesmaid refuses. Drunk bride slaps bridesmaid. Friendship dies right there and then. The end.
5 The groom who treated everyone to his heavy metal drumming skills
The main story posted here by Reddit user MisterMarmalade describes a groom commandeering the drum kit of his wedding band, but we're also loving the "poor sod" incident he relates underneath...
6 The bride who attacked her brand new husband with a shoe
Married life is hard, guys.
7 The bride who banned any guests born "out of wedlock"
We're really hoping this story isn't real.
8 The groom who just got too hot
Reddit user CaptainBacon_eh was at a wedding where the groom suddenly started acting very strangely, interrupting the speeches to announce that he was too hot:
He starts tearing off his suit jacket like it's strangling him. The speeches stopped...Everyone just sits there in awkward silence until the wedding party returns to the table. Groom says, "good, it's my wedding and I was too hot," smiles, sits down and nods to the MC like that was a totally normal thing to do. Alcohol wasn't involved either - that was a totally sober decision on his part.
Ah well. Each to their own.
9 The couple who brought down a plane
What is wrong with throwing a bouquet with your own arms? THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE FOR.
10 The bride who got...breastfed
The less said about this incident, the better.
11 The groom who walked out on his bride in front of all her students
Another Reddit wedding here, and this time it's more sad than funny:
My entire fourth grade class was in attendance at our teacher's wedding where she was left at the altar...My teacher was the bride and was about 3/4 down the aisle when the groom decided he couldn't do it. He walked off to the side and at first my teacher and her father didn't notice and kept walking, smiling radiantly. There was about a minute of really solid confusion...before everyone realized what was going on. My teacher was whisked out of the church and an announcement was made that there was not going to be a wedding. This happened the second or third week of June; she didn't come back for the last week of school.
12 The couple who expected way too much from their guests
This couple decided to have an expensive wedding in Jamaica, ask for $1000 from each of their guests and then demand that everyone buy specific themed suits or dresses costing up to $1200 each.
Unsurprisingly, pretty much everyone (including two best men) dropped out. Oh, and the marriage lasted seven months. Think that's what you call karma.
13 The bride who made a poorly timed joke (that cost her her marriage)
Totally worth it.
14 The bride who missed her own wedding
I was at the wedding for one of my sister's friends who was the bride. The Bride never showed up at the wedding and no one could find her. After several hours the groom and his family all went home. Turned out the bride went for a wild night of partying and slept with some guy she met at a club. She was passed out drunk at his place all day long before she came around and realized she missed her own wedding.
TBH this woman sounds like kind of a ledge.
15 The bride who just shit everywhere
WARNING: This story is long, poo-filled and pretty disgusting.
16 The groom who nearly died because of Dirty Dancing
Proof that no good can come from watching coming-of-age dance romances. NO GOOD AT ALL.
