Should Bridesmaids Sign a Contract?

As a Wedding Planner and past bride, I can see why such a contract would be valuable.  The following contact is from an actual bridesmaid who had to sign this for her friends wedding(I changed the names and date).  Of course most brides could relate to the frustration of having expectations that aren’t met by your bridesmaids.  This contract does seem a little extreme(but very funny!).  I can’t decide if it’s a bridezilla move or preventative measures:)

Enjoy a good laugh!
