Many people online have shared stories lately, showcasing how selfish and inconsiderate people can be at their own weddings. No matter how many people know that a wedding is a special day about someone else—they tend to “take the shine off of the bride/groom.” When it’s done intentionally, I totally side with the bride. But, sometimes, there are things that are too ridiculous to even defend.
One Reddit bride posted a story on the site claiming that one of her friends completely ruined her wedding day by being too pregnant. It seems a bit outlandish to be angry at someone for being pregnant. But, she also claims that the bridesmaid/friend should throw her a new wedding.
No offense, but a wedding “do-over” seems a bit insane to me. Your guests already came to your wedding once, got you a gift, and partied the night away—I doubt they want to do it again.
u/ignoredbride let everyone know the background information, like the wedding “took 3 full years to plan.”
“My now husband and I got married 1.5 months ago. We had 6 people on each side of the bridal party. This wedding took 3 full years to plan and preparefor. When I got engaged, most of the bridesmaids were very single, including Anna, the “star” of this story. Two of them were in long term relationships. I wanted to just give the two partnered bridesmaids plus ones. Anna seemed offended by this, because my wedding was then years off, and she was actually dating her now husband at the time (though it was casual).”
“I eventually got pushed by my mother to give all of them plus ones. Anna actually continued to date that guy, and married him four months before my wedding at two months pregnant. She brought her new husband as her plus one (who I never met prior) and convinced one of the other bridesmaids to take her friend as hers (when she KNEW we didn’t like him).”
Anna, who has a “vibrant personality,” a “very tall and incredibly attractive” husband, and a “hugely pregnant” stomach ended up garnering some attention from several wedding guests.
“She was hugely pregnant, and didn’t refrain from showing it off. We’re both fairly young (25) and in my husband’s culture, getting pregnant before late 20s/30s, married or not, is basically a teenage pregnancy and drew ATTENTION. She also has a vibrant personality and has a way of eclipsing everyone around her. Her husband is also very tall and incredibly attractive, which drew a lot of attention.”
After getting heated over how many people mentioned Anna and her hot husband, this bride felt like an afterthought. To top it all off, Anna’s friend hooked up with the bride’s brother—and everyone found out he is gay.
“All anyone spoke about or of was Anna’s pregnancy and her attractive husband. Even in the line, people were asking about that “electric woman” and of her pregnancy/marriage/life. When they got up to dance, all eyes were on them. Anna’s friend ended up hooking up with my brother, outing him as gay and causing a huge scandal.”
The whole brother thing—not Anna’s fault.
“I ended up leaving midway through the reception in tears, and never attended the next morning’s brunch. Anna and her entourage left early the next morning and also didn’t attend. I can’t even look at the pictures without crying and desperately want a do over.”
However, this bride feels as though Anna “owes” her another wedding because she “got pregnant without a thought.”
“I’m not a bridezilla, but this was beyond the pale. It felt like a celebration of Anna’s marriage. I’m sorry, but I put so much planning, effort, and money into this while someone thatgot pregnant without a thought and married spur of the moment reaped the benefits.
I honestly feel like Anna owes me a wedding and did all of this as revenge for me offending her years ago. Am I wrong?”
Don’t worry, the responses brutally ripped her apart.
Many accused OP of being salty, spiteful, and jealous—mostly of Anna’s hot, tall husband.
A lot of Redditors defended Anna, arguing she’d done nothing wrong by simply living her life.
Best of luck to this bride and her new husband.
