A bride-to-be has berated her maid of honour after she dared to get engaged ahead of her own wedding.

The bride shared her outrage on the online forum Mumsnet where she explained that she was getting married in three months and that she was concerned that her best friend would get distracted.

In a lengthy post on the forum, the bride - who goes by the intimidating username of FireHazrd - claimed that her maid of honour would no longer be focused on her wedding.

She explains that her friend is often guilty of constantly copying her interests and that she had only been with her fiance for a year.

She added:

I need this. I need the fuss. I deserve my day, right? I’ve waited so d**n long for this.

I do believe they love each other and I genuinely am happy, I just wish they’d waited a few months more.

I’m happy to still have her in my bridal party, she is my best mate, I’m just a bit peed off about it all.

Am I being a horrible bridezilla type?

Although she did vow to allow her friend to continue to be a part of her wedding, the comments to the post saw her become to source of a lot of criticism.

Enjoy the build-up to your wedding! No reason she can’t get excited about hers at the same time and you can share each other’s excitement and experience.

HarshingMyMellow added:

Your wedding is very important to you. 

Her engagement is very important to her.

There's no top trumps. One doesn't outdo the other.

Badwifey was less diplomatic with her assessment of the story:

I didn't even read past the first god you are being very very unreasonable. Complete bridezilla.

I hope you at least congratulated your friend.

It sounds like she's not even truly a friend op because if she was you'd have been genuinely delighted for her.

Get over yourself.

FlyingElbows then absolutely destroyed her:

You sound like a jealous 7 year old. Grow up. Come November 12th nobody you're going to have to find a new hobby.

Oh and your suggestion that her relationship is inferior because she didn't get, or possibly want, a showy proposal is just mean.

I'm 22 years into my no proposal, no wedding marriage! Stop being a b***h and go back to your napkins.

As the comments got worse FireHazrd then jumped into the comments in an attempt to defend herself, but only made the situation worse.

That really didn't help her situation and as one person pointed out you really have to feel for her husband.

It's interesting that in talking about your big day and what you deserve and blah blah blah you never once mention your husband to be.

Comes across as very shallow like you just want your big day and the groom is just a co-star.

Ouch! Well, we can only hope that their big day goes without a hitch because judging by this, it will be eventful.
