Bride slammed for treating wedding guests like ‘inmates’ with ‘rude’ rules list

A bride-to-be was slammed online after sharing her “ridiculous” list of demands for her wedding.

The collection of rules was going to be handed out to guests as instructions for what to do on the big day and it included “no phones” and “pace yourself when drinking”.

After posting the list on Facebook, the woman asked social media users whether she had “forgotten any” restrictions.

But, people quickly ripped her apart for treating her guests like “inmates”.

The list had 11 rules and was to be sent out with the wedding invitations.

Other rules included “don’t show up late”, “no rushing anyone” and “no nit-picking”.

Plus, she insisted that people “don’t get in the photographer’s way” and “don’t wear white” as well as “no big announcements or proposals”.

While many of the rules do seem reasonable people said that they felt the delivery was “rude” and that she needed to find a more polite way of telling her guests.

One person said: "Surely there is a more polite way of doing this?

“This is rude. They are guests, not inmates.

“Surely people know?

“It's common sense… If you need to give your guests rules then I think you're inviting the wrong kind of people."

However, the bride defended herself and said her fiancé’s mother was "controlling and narcissistic” and “needs rules.”

And, people suggested she send the rules directly to his mum instead of to everyone.

A poster said: “If most of those rules are directed at your fiancé's mum, I would talk to her directly if you're that concerned.

“Addressing all the guests with these blanket rules seems like overkill.”

Unfortunately, the bride said that "she's not one to just 'talk to'" and so she would need to send the list.

She added that she "didn't care" what everyone thought because it was her wedding day and not theirs.

A commenter said: “The issue isn't the rules, it's the way your way of displaying them.

“Have your fiancé talk to his damn mother and stop treating the rest of your guests like children."

Another added. “Have the 'no phones' on a sign as people walk in.

“Don't hand people a set of rules like they are in school. This has bridezilla written all over it."

Not everyone agreed that it was wrong though.

One fan wrote: “I agree with all of them and I don't actually think it's put rudely either.

“They were written plainly and without flowery language but that doesn't make them rude, it's just neutral.”

And, another said: "In all honesty though, while most of it is common sense, not everyone has that common sense."
