Bridesmaid wearing a watch?!
141

Serenitymummy · 21/08/2018 22:00

This isn’t me but someone I know - was a bridesmaid to a good friend, she was hers a few years ago. Bridezilla (I’ve decided) asked all bridesmaids to take off their watches ‘so they don’t ruin the photos’.

My friend bridesmaid forgot, bridezilla now going mental at her. To the point the friendship might be over. AIBU to think bride is going way ott with this?!

Utterly ridiculous IMO. Bridezilla needs to calm the fuck down. Again, IMO.

Watches on the wedding photographs is very unsightly IMO. At my wedding I was very specific on what jewellery was allowed for the bridesmaids.

Bridezilla has gone totally mental. Aside from it being a total non-issue, surely a watch would be relatively easy for a decent photographer to edit out?

That's utterly, utterly bonkers. The bridesmaid would be well rid of that bride as a friend.

There's a nice way of asking all bridesmaids not to wear watches. And if one of them does, there's a diplomatic way of pointing that out.

How did it get to the stage of a watch being in photos?

But losing a friendship over it is unreasonable.

Ah ha ha ha!!! Grin I can guarantee you they all thought you were batshit and totally unreasonable and probably had a good gossip about it

I wore my mum's nice Rolex watch when I was a bride!

I wear a Rolex on a daily basis but I certainly didnt want it in my wedding photographs.

No my bridesmaids agreed with me on jewellery and the no watch rule.

Sheesh

Quite frankly I would gladly end the friendship with the bride

Issues like this really make me wonder if the wedding has anything to do with a marriage

If I was asked to remove my watch, the photos might look odd; I have a very definite tan line around my wrist. It looks as if I’m wearing a white bangle!

I have never heard of anyone doing this. Shock I can't even remember whether or not I wore a watch with my wedding dress (I probably did) let alone care whether anyone else did or not.

It should be a piece of piss to edit something simple like a watch out of the photos if it really bothers the bride that much.

My friend bm just forgot. Two dd under 3 that were part of the wedding party to get sorted, as far as I know, so it slipped her mind. It’s not huge/bright/colourful/unsightly in any way IMO. Just wondered if I was in the minority thinking wtf does it matter?!!

Women’s watches with formal wear usually look very odd- there’s very few that are fine enough so it doesn’t clash with the rest of the outfit.

I would have thought it was common sense to not wear one, but it’s done now- I don’t see why the bride is losing her mind when a photographer should easily be able to edit it out.

How do people even think of these things? I would never in a million years notice, or care.

Yeah, ridiculous.

Was it a massive neon garish watch or something?

I was ordered (as the bride) to remove my watch.

It honestly never occurred to me.

Now it's happened the bride really ought to get over it. It's not as if the bridesmaid got her with a custard pie.

Some people have soooo little to think about. A watch! Ruining a picture! Grow the fuck up.

What a bridezilla! I worn my watch when I got married - I wear it everyday. I’ve no idea what jewelry my bridesmaids wore - it never crossed my mind. Some people are really ridiculous - does it really matter if someone’s watch is on a wedding photo?
