Woman wears her wedding dress to someone else’s big day and asks ‘Am I wrong?’

Imagine someone wore their wedding dress to your big day

Most people would be very unhappy, but what if it didn’t even look like a traditional dress?

Would you really have the right to stir up some drama? That’s what one Reddit user is trying to figure out with the help of the online community.

Explaining the situation she found herself in the mystery woman wrote: “I married my husband two years ago. We aren’t rich and don’t care that much about weddings, so I wore my prom dress to my wedding.

It’s not a super fancy dress or anything, it’s basically a long sequin dress in deep dark blue with one sleeve. For the reference, the dress.

“My friend Ciara was attending my wedding. Since the wedding, I have worn it on a few occasions because it’s basically the only fancy dress I own.”

So when it came time for her friend to get married the poster decided to wear the dress once again as she didn’t see the point in buying a brand new one for a single night.

Yet when the bride caught sight of her, she lost it, screaming at the Redditor in front of all her guests and husband.

“I tried to reason with her, saying that the dress isn’t a wedding dress, it’s the only fancy piece of clothing I own, I wore it on multiple occasions before and after my wedding,” the woman continued.

“She didn’t listen and kept yelling at me to the point her bridesmaids and her husband started trying to calm her down. She also said a bunch of unsavoury names to me.

“I was very upset with the drama and decided to leave with my husband. Then I started getting texts from Ciara, who blamed me for upstaging her on her wedding day, for driving a wedge between her and her husband since he said that she overreacted massively and upset her friend over a dress.”

Now the woman is wondering if she was wrong for her decision but it seemed that most of her fellow Redditors were on her side.

“This is your fancy occasion dress that you wore to prom and multiple other events and just happened to wear to your wedding,” penned one, “It’s not a wedding dress and Cara manufactured a conflict where no one would have even been the wiser.”

Another wrote: “People think that at their own wedding, they can do and say whatever they want for some reason. Very unreasonable to get out of line like that. She made a fool out of herself, you didn’t do anything wrong in my opinion.”

While a third commented: “I am so curious to know what the other guests were thinking as they watched her yell at OP for wearing a blue dress to a wedding with blue as the colour theme lol. That must have looked absolutely unhinged to them.”
