Posting on Reddit, the bride’s sister wrote: “My sister is getting engaged and is having her potential bridal party battle it out so she has one less thing to worry about before the engagement.”
She shared a screenshot of her sister’s text message, which asked seven friends to compete for four spots on the bridal team.
It read: “Congrats! You’ve made it into the final round of the Bridal Party Brawl. Currently there are 7 players left and only 4 spots available.”
The bride goes on to outline a series of “requirements” for the lucky few selected for the available spots of “bridesmaid 1″, “bridesmaid 2”, “bridesmaid 3” and “flower girl”.
The requirements including hosting a couples-only wedding party in addition to providing a wedding gift of $500 (£389) cash or cheque and a further “day of” gift costing at least $100 (£78).
Unsurprisingly, Reddit was not down with the bride’s list of requests – advising the sister to back away from the competition.
One person wrote: “What the actual f**k? This is crazy. Lol. Don’t reply and be happy you don’t have to deal with the stress.”
Another advised her to develop an fake illness on the day: “This … is this a joke? I’d have the flu that day.”
