It’s the one occasion in your life when you want everything to be perfect. Every detail must be just right: from the flowers and décor to the bridesmaids’ outfits.  

And heaven forbid that one of your bridesmaids should upstage you on your big day. 

One bride was taking no chances on this count. She recently shared a draconian 37-rule contract she sent to her 10 bridesmaids. The bridezilla, believed to be from the US, has been slammed for making her bridal party sign the contract before the event. 

The contract, which includes rules such as, “I will wear only black or dark-brown hair on the day of the wedding (highlights may be accepted with prior approval)” and “I will not attempt to outdo the bride in any way”, ensured the bride had complete control over her bridesmaids. 

Surprisingly, six of the 10 bridesmaids signed it.

According to the bride, the reason she drew up the contract is because she’d “read a lot of posts about issues with bridesmaids”. 

“It explained my expectations from beginning to end,” she captioned her list she posted on Facebook. “I refused to be stressed and didn’t budge on any of it.” 

Facebook users slammed her. “I would screw this contract up and throw it in the bride's face. What an idiot,” one commented. 

“And I can’t believe six people signed it!” another said.

Here are 10 of the bride’s 37 rules:

• I will not try to convince the bride to change anything in her wedding. 

• I will not talk negative about anyone in the wedding.

• I cannot wear any lashes the day of the wedding unless professionally installed.

• I will not intentionally fall pregnant before the wedding (Pregnancy under five months will not be excused from attending wedding events). 

• I will not consume more than seven units of alcohol during any event except the bachelorette party (there will be no limit). 

• I will make sure I have an accountable babysitter the day of all events and I understand that no-show for no babysitter will not be an acceptable excuse. 

• I will not make any advances towards males in the wedding party. 

• I will not date anyone in the wedding party that I wasn’t dating before I signed this contract.• I will be happy and positive at all times during wedding and reception.

• I will not grow sensitive and angry with the bride because I understand that she has a bossy attitude. 

• I will not attempt to outdo the bride in any way.
