We all know the role of Maid of Honour is pretty much to deal with any crazy request the bride throws your way with little objection, right?
…Even if it’s something as ridiculous as filling 40 glass bowls with goldfish and ensuring none are caught sleeping on the big day.
Yep. One maid of honour was tasked with discarding dead goldfish on her best friend’s wedding day after the bride’s bizarre desire to decorate each table with a fish bowl centrepiece went slightly… wrong.
Team Mamamia confess the worst request they’ve received as a bridesmaid:
Because precisely no one wanted to take a goldfish home with them as the bride had planned, because of course they didn’t.
The woman shared her hilarious story on Reddit, and the ending is oddly heartwarming.
“I was MOH for my (then) best friend. It was a fairly casual affair and she wasn’t as big a monster as most of the stories here, with the exception of this one tiny thing,” the anonymous post to the “bridezilla” thread began.
“The venue offered a variety of glass containers the bride could fill with whatever she wanted. Tall cylindrical vases, decorative platters, bowls, globes. Which shape she chose would depend upon what the bride chose to display in it. Did she want flowers? Candles? Pebbles? No, she had a better idea,” the woman explained.
