This Bridesmaid Says the Bride Suggested She Get an Abortion So Her Dress Fit Better

We’ve heard some wild tales of bad behavior by brides over the years, but this latest story may just be the most out-there (and frankly unbelievable) yet.

The Sun first reported the story, which was originally posted in a Facebook group about wedding shaming. In the post, a bridesmaid claims that her then-best friend (the bride whom she calls “Kate”) did not take the news of the bridesmaid’s pregnancy well—at all.

“About a year before the wedding, I found out I was pregnant. I was always told I couldn’t have kids and so obviously my daughter was not planned but I was over the moon,” she says, per The Sun. “So I told Kate, expecting excitement, right? Nope. She immediately told me that I was going to be so stressed trying to get my bridesmaid dress fitting on my own since I’d have to do it after everyone already had theirs (I was due in April, wedding was in June).”

The bridesmaid continued: “She reminded me that it was a kid free wedding, and then after thoroughly explaining how difficult her wedding would be for me, she said (verbatim) ‘so don’t you think it might be better for you to have an abortion?’ I had to read that one a few times.”

Wow. Just wow.

“I asked if she seriously just suggested I get an abortion to make her wedding go more smoothly?” she wrote. “She told me I was ruining my life and then called her mom to tell me to have an abortion … So (obviously) I didn’t speak to her again, got a wedding invite and never sent the RSVP back, and her eight months pregnant future SIL took my place as bridesmaid, she ended up with dresses that easily would’ve accommodated my postpartum body.”

We would agree that ending this relationship is for the best. And can someone tell this bride there are plenty of ways to throw a child-free wedding that don’t involve telling your bridesmaid what to do with her body?
