When a bride becomes a bit needy in the lead up to her special day she can be forgiven, but some women seem to take their demands to an entirely extreme level.

While some handle the pressures of their big day with aplomb, others make ridiculous demands and take it out on those closest to them: their bridesmaids.

On the anonymous app Whisper, women from all over the world have revealed the most shocking experiences they've had as a member of a bridal party.

One user shared how she was forced to have a rehearsal for her hairstyle, the day she was admitted into a mental health unit.

Another woman said she was dropped from the crew of bridesmaids because she couldn't afford to buy the special shoes before dress try-ons, even though she was saving up to buy them before the wedding.

An recurring theme in the thread was brides overbearing approach to how their bridesmaids should look. Some enforced spray tans and chemically straightened hair - which would cause permanent changes.
