We've all heard the term bridezilla before, but one bride has taken the concept to a whole new level by forcing her bridesmaids to sign a ridiculously strict 37-rule contract prior to her wedding.

The women selected for the role have the, um, honor of being warned not to "intentionally' fall pregnant, flirt with any male guests, and, naturally, "not attempt to outdo the bride in any way".

This single woman is already planning her wedding: 

According to the Daily Star, alongside her list of extensive rules, the bride explained her reasons for creating it on Facebook.

"I've read a lot of posts about issues with bridesmaids," she said. "I gave out contracts. It explained my expectations from beginning to end.

"I refused to be stressed and didn't budge on any of it."

21. I will not grow sensitive and angry with the bride because I understand that she has a bossy attitude.

22. I will not attempt to outdo the bride in any way.

28. I understand that the bride does not want any suggestion and this agreement is on here twice, two different ways because the bride wants it to be clear. Only suggestion allowed is a way to get her exact item at a cheaper price.

29. I will not drop out of the wedding party for any of the reasons listed above. If I do not like anything listed, I will not sign the contract and I will be replaced. I understand that I do not agree to the above terms it will not ruin the bride and I's friendship. But if I sign and agree and later want to drop out, then it will ruin our friendship.

30. I understand that no friendship to the bride is bigger than anyone in her wedding party and everyone will be treated equally.

31. I understand that I may have to do physical activity at the reception and this requires practices provided by the bride.

32. No colored contact lenses allowed.

33. No black drawn-on eyebrows or thick drawn-on ([as a] matter of fact, revert back to make-up law above).

34. No glossy colored lipstick allowed (the kind that looks very, very shiny and bright).

35. No colorful nails [on] the day of the wedding. Only colors allowed are American, French or Nudes.

36. I will provide the bride with my normal seven-day schedule within five days of signing this contract.

37. I will agree to save at least $50 [£40] a month for expenses for the next 14 months.

Convinced that her list was perfect, the bride offered to share the document with others on Facebook who were keen for their Big Days to go off without a hitch (in the bridesmaid department, at least).

Needless to say, the contract went down like a lead balloon with the 10 bridesmaids it was presented to, and in the end, just six signed. Still, that's six more people than I'd have if I pulled a similar stunt!
