Brides can get very involved in their weddings and can often not deal well with things not going their way. But this story is proof of the fact that the bride is not always right. In this story posted on Reddit by u/Lopsided_Phone_4737, she talks about how a bride friend of hers yelled at her in front of guests at her wedding for something very menial and irrelevant.

The woman began by explaining that she was 20 years old. When she was 18, she married her now-husband. Since the couple was not very rich and also didn't care a lot about weddings, the woman ended up wearing her prom dress to the wedding. Describing the dress, she says that it wasn't a super fancy dress per se. She adds, "It’s basically a long sequin dress in deep dark blue with one sleeve." She also added a link to the dress for people to understand. The thing was, her friend Cara attended the wedding and she saw the woman wearing this blue dress. According to the woman, she had actually worn this dress a few other times as well, since this was the only fancy dress she owned.

After giving context, she said, "Recently, Ciara was getting married and I was obviously invited." Cara set the color scheme of the wedding to dark blue and she also requested that everyone attending the wedding wear fancy attire. The 20-year-old did what anyone would; she ended up wearing her wedding/prom dress since it fit the bill. Plus, she assumed it would be okay. Not only was the dress not white at all, but she also didn't have the money to go and buy another fancy dress that she would barely wear.

When she reached the wedding in her wedding dress, she realized it was more than okay to have worn the dress since she wasn't even standing out. Plus, there were a lot of people who were dressed much better than her. However, Cara got upset when she saw her. Talking about Cara's reaction, she said, "She yelled at me in front of all the guests, in front of her husband and my husband, saying that what I did was horrible and that no one shows up at a wedding in a wedding dress." Despite the woman trying to explain to her that the dress was not a traditional wedding dress but the only fancy one that she owned, it fell on deaf ears. Going more into Cara's behavior, she said, "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 unsavory names to me." Upset with this, the woman left with her husband.

Cara then started texting her and telling her that not only did she ruin her wedding day but also caused a wedge between the couple because Cara's husband believed that she overreacted. So, the woman felt guilty and asked the internet what it thought. The readers collectively believed that the one in the wrong in the story was Cara. u/pacazpac said, "This is your 'fancy occasion' dress that you wore to prom and multiple other events and just happened to wear to your wedding. It’s not a wedding dress and Cara manufactured a conflict where no one would have even been the wiser. You didn’t drive a wedge between her and her husband; she did by acting ridiculously. NTA and girlie’s husband are right. She needs to get a grip."

u/thegodcomplex17 said, "NTA. It’s clearly not a wedding dress and nobody there will have thought it was. She’s just annoyed that you wore your wedding dress. Maybe it speaks to the sort of person she is that she thought you were doing it to try and undermine her wedding day. It definitely speaks to the sort of person she is that she decided to blow up her wedding over it. It’s that extreme a reaction; it feels like she was just waiting for something she could lose her sh*t over."
