It’s no secret that some brides can be very demanding, but one such bridezilla recently went on a rant on Facebook, and we’ll be surprised if she has any friends left, let alone a groom. The bride in question recently blasted her friends and family because none of them were willing to shell out $3,000 each to celebrate her big day at a destination wedding in Thailand.

“At the risk of sounding entitled... I have to vent today,” she wrote, and then went off on how only nine people out of 150 RSVPd to the big day. “Ok, I get it, paying $3k to share my special day is too much for some for you, I'd pay for yours, but whatever,” she continued. She then noted that they switched the big day to Hawaii, which brought the price down by $1,000, but in that case only seven people RSVPd. “It costs less but less of you wanna come?,” she ranted. “Is that what you think of [D] and me? You can't spare $2k to come share our happiness?”

The bride then threatened to elope, and gave her guests three days to respond or they’d be deleting them off Facebook. And showing how truly shallow she is, she then added, “And don't get me started on the registry... Only the cheap stuff is gone, I swear I thought I had better friends.” 

  • The Facebook post was shared to Reddit, where, as you can imagine, folks had definite thoughts about this bridezilla. “At the risk or sounding entitled, your friendship is only worth the amount of money you will spend on me," one person posted, while another added, “Dude needs to run away. This is headed toward a train wreck. No woman is that hot.”

New York Fashion Week is in the books and the looks on the runways gave us a taste of what we’ll see on the streets in the upcoming year. These were some of the major trends people will be wearing.

  • Daring denim - Jeans are never out of style, but now the look is more varied. There were elegant twists from designers Coach and Michael Kors and denim in everything from skirts to dresses to overcoats. From indigo to faded jeans, get ready for denim with a modern twist.
  • Tie-dye - It’s not just for hippies or music festivals anymore. Fashion week showed tie-dye revamped for streetwear. Some brands, like Eckhaus Latta, went for a matchy-matchy look and others, like John Elliott, were styled more casually with bucket hats and sneakers.
  • Bike shorts - Athleisure addicts, like Kimmy K and Bella Hadid, paired them with everything from bomber jackets to blazers and now biker shorts have hit the runway as well. And Area, a brand known for on-trend, party ready styles, showed the sporty staple upgraded to a metallic material and worn with a matching dress.
  • Fringe - At Oscar de la Renta is was on the backs of high heels and swishing off evening gowns, at Calvin Klein it was swinging from a fanny pack. No matter how you wear it, get ready because fringe is in.
  • Yellow - The bright, sunny hue stood out against the rainy week in New York and yellow was seen on dozens of runways from Brandon Maxwell to Carolina Herrera. Dressed up or down, it’s definitely a stand out shade.

It’s not even technically fall yet, but for some folks, it’s never too early to start thinking about holiday shopping. So if you’re stumped about what to buy for your friends this year, why not gift them with something you can enjoy as well? Giving a pal a present you’d like yourself means you could borrow it from time to time, and what could be better than that? Here are some gift ideas that are perfect for sharing.

  • Speakers - Your bestie can start enjoying them right away and when you need some for your next party, you can count on borrowing hers.
  • A tool kit - It’s a practical present and at some point, everyone will need a tool kit, like you when you’re trying to assemble that new Ikea desk.
  • A subscription box - Give the candy-of-the-month subscription box from Candy Club and then go over to your buddy’s place to help them eat all the extras they can’t handle.
  • A great book - Haven’t read “Crazy Rich Asians” yet? Pick up a copy of the best-seller for your BFF and then borrow it when she’s done.
  • A gift set that comes with multiple items - Pick up a trio of lip balms, face masks, or bath bombs for your bestie and she can keep two and pass one down to you.
  • A useful cooking tool or gadget - If you’ve been curious about a new product but don’t want another thing crowding your kitchen, give one to your friend and then borrow it to test it out for yourself. Maybe the Instant Pot really does live up to the hype, but buying it for someone else lets you try it out guilt-free first.
