Bride goes viral after posting long list of rules for bridesmaids

Marriage | July 3, 2021

Admittedly, she confesses to being insecure doing this (though her hundreds of TikTok posts don’t attest to that), and she’s based this plan on her own sometimes frustrating bridesmaid experiences.

“I have been a bridesmaid before and there were some unexpected costs and expectations on my end,” Torres said. “Hearing my friends complain about their experiences in wedding parties and learning about how much the expectations vary made me want to make sure that I didn’t create any conflicts. I was very intent on avoiding conflict and being transparent and upfront with the costs.”

According to Torres, the response from her bridesmaid candidates has been fine.
