Bride's 'conniving' move sees bridesmaid drop out of wedding

A bridesmaid has revealed the moment she decided to drop out of her friend's wedding, after the bride tried to break up her relationship of 3.5 years.

Taking to Reddit, the woman said she and her current boyfriend Jack had been together for some time, but her friend - the bride-to-be - seemed to be under the impression that Jack was "too good" for her.

"Jack comes from a very wealthy background,” the Reddit user wrote.

"Jack is considered to be conventionally attractive, always looking like he should be on some magazine or billboard. Jack’s good looks and background have led Mary to believe that ‘Jack deserves better than me,’ as, according to her, ‘There’s no way I could have pulled someone so attractive and rich.’ It’s pretty disheartening to hear those things constantly."


One day before her friend's wedding, the woman says the bride - Mary - and her fiancé invited her out for lunch. When she arrived, the fiancé’s friend Gary was also there.

"Gary seemed to be a great lad with great chat," she said, before revealing the shocking secret she discovered.

"He asked me why I was single, and I told him that I was in a happy, committed relationship. He was very taken aback by my answer. He told me that Mary had set up a blind, double-date of sorts for the both of us."

She said she called her friend later that day to ask her about her secret plan and things didn't go down so well.

"At first, she tried to deny it, but then she tried to justify it by saying that, ‘Gary is a man who’s more in my league,’ and since he was also a groomsman, we needed to ‘get to know each other'," she continued.

"I was shocked by her bluntness, so I just told her that I didn’t want to be her bridesmaid anymore."

Many other Reddit users slammed the bride for her outrageous behaviour, and supported the woman's decision to quit the bridal party.

"Is she jealous or something because it strongly sounds like it?" one person wondered.

"This conniving behaviour is insane," was another person's reaction.

While a third wrote: "No friend would ever say that sort of thing."
