And it seems the pressure of tying the knot proved a little too much for one bride who has come under fire among her bridal party - and the entire internet.
A Reddit thread, which has since been deleted, went viral across the web after a bride asked whether she had the right to be annoyed that one of her bridesmaids had fallen pregnant.
Writing on the thread, she asked the internet: "Long story short, I just found out that one of my bridesmaids will be 5-6 months pregnant on my wedding day.

"This bridesmaid was also planning my super secret bachelorette party that I know no details of, but I’m assuming involved drinking that will probably either be changed or cancelled.
"Maybe I’m just thinking the worst here. But personally I think it’s wrong to get pregnant when you’re part of the bridal party and not tell the bride…"
Her post was met with some serious backlash, with many users hailing her 'selfish'.
One wrote: "You can’t ask someone to put their life on hold for your wedding. You are being selfish. As for your bachelorette party…that just means she won’t be able to drink. I’m sure you can still have the party you want."
Another dubbed her "very selfish", adding her own tale to the thread. "I will be a bridesmaid this coming summer and one of my fellow bridesmaids is pregnant and is due just a few weeks after the wedding," she wrote.
"The bride is nothing but happy for her. Even making sure she will have a chair for her to sit in during the ceremony just in case she needs a rest.
"Your friend is there for you and supporting you. You need to be there for her too."
Do you agree that she's being selfish?
