It is a sad reality that many prospective daughters-in-law and their mothers-in-law can’t seem to make things work in good favor. But, for the sake of the son and husband to be, they put their differences aside and make it work. There are so many secrets that often go on between the two, but there comes a time when a line has to be drawn. Just imagine, this young bride-to-be saw her fiance’s mother doing the worst, and fair enough, it is safe to say this could be something that requires legal actions to be taken…If you ask us, if something like this were to happen to any of us, there would be no more space for the “one big happy family” setting as every trust and confidence would be lost…possibly – forever!
Relationship with Friction
Tracey felt the need to share her experience with her fiance’s mother on Reddit as it happened a few months leading up to her own wedding in Colombia. Like many other mother-and-daughter-in-law relationships, these two never had smooth sailing and disagreed on so many levels and even some simple things. Sure enough, we can attest the two women may have overlooked a lot of the issues, but this time around, when the future mother-in-law did this one thing…it was pretty much unforgivable!
Tracey had always remained very mature in all instances whenever she and the older woman had their disagreements. But, the moment she found her prospective mother-in-law messing around with her wedding dress, she was no longer on the calm side. This time, the older woman had gone too far, and it is clear Tracey found it unbelievable and could not forgive her for this abominable act. Tracey was trying really hard to keep her cool, but this was deeper than any form of politeness. We are sure you are dying to know what happened with the two.
Meant To Happen
One of the strongest points in a relationship that holds it together is that one can cooperate with their spouse’s family and get along very well. Tracey wanted that bond with her fiance’s family, especially his mom, right from the moment she said the ultimate yes to his proposal. But, as with the trend, this family had a matriarchal figure determined to make Tracey’s life and transition into the family not so smooth. After all, whenever you get married to someone, it’s their entire family that you marry no matter what.
People To Depend On
Weddings take a lot of planning, and if you are not careful, it can stress you out a lot and put a lot of pressure on the couple. As such, couples often put some of the work on their friends and family to get some of the stress off their back. But, you would trust them to do right by you and help shed the load from your hands. However, at times, some people claim to help you, but in the end, they only make things worse for you and your special event.
Each person who saw Rick and Tracey’s photos on social media would believe the couple had everything going great for them, as this is the visualization presented. They love taking pictures together in romantic and happy settings and presented themselves as the happiest couple in the world. But, there is one reality about social media, there is always the hidden dark side, and the public generally is kept out of that reach. They were working hard to build a life together but didn’t know disaster was lurking shortly…
There might be a lot that causes problems when it comes to weddings, but many might not believe the wedding gown would be the center of the problems as innocent as it is. It is the most interesting and memorable piece of clothing that any woman could wear as it puts her in place to make her feel like a queen. Well, even if it is just for a single day. Tracey worked hard to get the most beautiful gown for her wedding, as this was one of her heart’s desires.
Tracey searched long and hard for the perfect gown until her heart decided to go with a design from Galia Lahav. This shop is pretty much popular in the eyes of celebrities as the likes of Beyonce and others got their personalized wedding gowns there. She wanted the best material that was soothed for the top stars as she wanted her one special day to be outstanding. Her mission was to make a fashion statement to her friends and family. After much deliberation, Tracey’s gown settled at roughly $11,000 – a classy and exquisite selection.
A Dream Event
Though the amount seems over the top, many women try to justify the hefty cost for their gowns with it being their special day and being an important event they have to make the best. Many people have gone ahead and even take out loans for their day to make it the best. For sure, we highly recommend people take it easy and not set themselves up for bankruptcy even before they begin the new journey in their lives. But, this does not mean you shouldn’t make your dress stand out, ladies – go to the extreme for your special day.
The Perfect Venue
A lot of couples opt to get the perfect venue for their wedding at a local spot. However, Rick and Tracey had their eyes and mind on Columbia as the perfect spot for their wedding. Tracey got all excited in one of her Facebook posts as she noted they planned their wedding for December in Columbia, and she was rearing and ready for the day. But, many people may wonder why they chose such a far location – well, it had something they were not ready to miss out on.
Tracey had the whole event planned out and did a great job convincing Rick to agree on choosing the exclusive getaway location. She was super excited and noted that it was set as a destination wedding for her and Rick, and she felt good within herself that she was able to get him to work with the flow. From all indications, Rick seems like the kind of guy who would go the extra mile to make sure his partner is happy and contented. However, one family member was not so keen on making plans go through smoothly.
Gina, Rick’s mother, was not afraid to let her concerns be known and her disapproval of the wedding being held so far away. Tracey was not too happy because her prospective mother-in-law never had feelings for the couple to let them get married in a place where English was not the native tongue. But, Tracey was not about to let her dreams be crashed because of someone’s prejudiced behavior. The whole issue was something Tracey saw as petty behavior, and if only she knew, it was the start of some seemingly endless problems.
Aside from the language barrier, Gina was also concerned about the threat of breached safety for the couple in the South American country. The cost was also a big issue for her. Americans fear South American countries and believe there are too many killings and kidnappings going on in those regions. For Tracey, however, she was paying so much attention to the reasons being given as she believed Gina didn’t have their best interest at heart and never really wanted to see their happiness.
Not In Agreement
Tracey somehow felt that no matter the wedding plans and decisions they came up with, Gina wouldn’t agree to it. For some reason, it seemed as though Gina was always on the negative side of things and would never see the good in any plan the couple made. It was evident they weren’t going to get along as they never see eye to eye on anything. Sure enough, it was sad that the two women couldn’t simply agree, and it would add to the troubles as Tracey said Gina never really liked her.
A Rocky Relationship
Tracey that Gina was polite, but her friendliness was pretty much fake, and even though she was showing her a little courteous behavior, he sincerely towards her future daughter-in-law was not that pleasant. Sure enough, Tracey would have felt so much better if Gina was harsh towards her openly, showing her some fake positive energy. The friction between the two seemed more like incompatibility than anything else. Something was going on between the two that was triggering endless resentment. But, to think that was all, more was on the way to push the two further apart.
Apparently, the friction between the two is common in most relationships, and in this case, it could be because they are both sharing Rick. The two women were dear to Rick and held a special place in his heart. Sure enough, if a man has an overbearing mother, no matter the kind of woman he brings around, she would never see them as good enough. There are countless excellent relationships but got messed up because those overbearing mothers had their hands dipped in and wanted their sons all to themselves.
Tracey never held back to tell the story of the intimate connections between her fiance and his mom, and for her, it was a little odd. She noted the mom would do a few “off the rack” things like sit on Rick’s lap, brush his hair behind his ears, and even cut his food for him to eat. In one instance, Tracey noted the mother fed him, literally in public! Yes, we understand there can be “mommy’s boys,” but this relationship is a bit too strange.
It may not have been strange when Tracey decided there should be a limit and making things clear before the big day. She understood if she didn’t make the first step in making things right with Gina, it could be a terrible and terrifying time for her through her marriage. There could be endless fake love and affection shown to her, and this she wanted to avoid. For sure, this is not an experience any new bride would want to get from her mother-in-law. Well, the good thing about it is that after noting her concerns, Gina started doing and responding better towards Tracey.
Even though Gina started acting differently, Tracey knew she was not excited about the two getting married. Hence, she never bothered to include her in the activities for her wedding. After finding out she was placed on the back burner regarding the planning, she started acting like a little spoilt child. As one would expect, she started making complaints to her son about how she was treated, and from there, some tensions started to reach a boiling boil.
Rick was now in the position he had to be dealing with and trying to quench a fiery battle. He was in the midst of two screaming women, and here he was trying to be in a spot where a UN Diplomat had to be. After hearing the side of Tracey and her discomfort with everything that was going on, Rick knew he had to make the bold step and confront his mother once and for all. Rick found himself in a tight spot with his unhappy fiance and his overbearing mother on the other end. He was now at his wit’s end, and he was exhausted.
Rick saw that he was in a situation where he was the one responsible for ensuring his new and growing family was happy no matter what. With his father not being around, Rick knew he was the “man” in the family and had to be the one to take charge of everything that came up. Finally, he stepped up to his mother and set her straight, and set some boundaries so there could be peace. Tracey was pleased with the move he made and how brave he was to make such a decision.
Leading Up To the Time
The day the couple would never forget is the smooth leading out of when the worst was about to happen. The sun was out in all its glory, the skies were blue and clear Tracey had a good feeling the day was going to be great. As they looked out their dining room window, they saw an all too familiar car approaching. The mother-in-law was finally visiting their new property, and the couple was really excited about giving her the grand tour of their new beginnings.
The couple went out and gladly and warmly welcomed Gina into their new home. However, as she entered, she never said a word to them but merely looked around at their new home with a sense of horror. Tracey and Rick were in disbelief as to why Gina responded to their new home as they loved it and were comfortable in it. After moving around, Gina didn’t have anything good to say. Her first response was a hostile attitude towards Tracey, and if Reddit is something to go by, it can be clear that Tracey was the one on the receiving end of some unwarranted negative responses.
Diminishing The Spark
So, what could be the issue this time around for Gina to be picking at Tracey? Well, to start, she was not so happy about the engagement Rick got for his fiance. Gina had a feeling the engagement ring was too much and was undeserving. Seeing we know Tracey had a knack for the best things in life, it was no reason for Gina to be so negative towards her. Sure enough, mothers need to learn when to curve their tongue, but it was something she found really hard to do in Gina’s case.
Searcing For Issues
In her response to the negative feedback from her prospective mother-in-law, Tracey noted the ring was much cheaper than the average diamond as it was moissanite. In a post on social media, Tracey noted that Gina said some harsh things, and some of her words noted how many children in Africa were suffering and didn’t have food. She claimed all that spending money was uncalled for and could have been used for the more important stuff. Tracey really wanted to label Gina a hypocrite especially seeing she had a lot of diamond jewelry herself.
Gina didn’t seem to let the ring be the only thing to bother her as she also found the couple’s new home as a major problem. Her tantrums were really soaring as she quarreled and made the most dramatic hand movements anyone could imagine. She cussed about the couple being quite irresponsible about their savings. She passed judgment on the couple for not being able to get themselves in a position to make sensible financial decisions and raise children successfully. Gina could not accept the fact that they could afford such property.
Gina could not accept how much the couple was showing off as this was not a thing her family was used to or would easily pass as ok. Once again, Tracey stepped in to defend the decision of her new family and noted the townhouse they live in was purchased at a discounted price. But, this story was one Gina was not ready to listen to or even accept and never believed the couple actually got the things they did at any reduced cost. To think things would have cooled down, it was only the beginning of Gina’s punches.
Things were headed down a path and reaching the highest level that would see any calm and relaxing person burst and get enraged. Interestingly, though, Tracey managed to stay really calm through the whole thing. When Gina noticed Tracey dodged the bullets, she decided it was time to up the nasty game. This time around, Gina touched on a topic that many would consider off-limits. She went on to start with the game of body-shaming, Tracey noting how she had put on some extra pounds and it would be best if she shed those before the big day.
Tracey went over to Reddit to voice her concerns, and she sure didn’t cut any words short. She noted how Gina made it clear she was getting fat and needed to watch her weight fit into her dress. In addition, her future mother-in-law kept on bragging about her specialized diet plan and how stunning her “mother of the bride dress” is. Gina never stopped making it known to Tracey how good she looked and how amazing her dress is. From the look of things, it was as though Gina was the one getting married as she was obsessed with getting the spotlight solely on her.
Tracey was really drawn back as to why she was being treated so harshly, even though it wouldn’t have been the first time Gina was making such negative comments. However, in her mind, Gina was somehow trying to reach out to Tracey, but with the mean attitude, it didn’t seem to be getting the desired results. Tracey was yearning for both her and her prospective mother-in-law to reach a peaceful and amicable resolution. If Gina never loved Tracey, nor would she grow to accept her, the least she could do was pretend and not be so mean.
Not Able To Please
The situation was going, and how things looked, Gina was apparently not happy with the bond shared between Tracey and her son. Gina believed that if Rick were not about to yield to her advice and do as she pleases, she would resort to changing everything about Tracey and turning her into the kind of woman she needed for her darling son. For her, nothing was good enough, especially when it came to Tracey. Gina’s ultimate goal was to strip and mold Tracey into an “appropriate” wife for her son.
Rick was mindful of the situation and what the relationship between the two women had become over time. It was really not the smoothest. At this point, Rick decided to ask Tracey to help him move a bed into the guest room. There is a saying, “if you can’t beat them, then stay as far away as possible from them.” For sure, we would have hoped the three would sit down and take the time to sort out the differences but for now, staying away turned out to be the best temporary solution.
Tracey really welcomed the decision to create some space between her and Gina, who she described as quite vindictive. She would finally be moving into a room that is relatively far from the grumpy woman. But from the way things seemed, Gina is not the kind of person you get away from so easily unless you decide to move a few countries apart. Gina was really vindictive and persecuting as much as a tiger. But, Tracey’s problems were just about to begin, and a visit to the master bedroom around thirty minutes later would show what we are talking about.
Stepping The Limits
As Tracey opened the doors to the master bedroom to use the bathroom, she was pushed into disbelief as she took a closer look at what was really waiting for her. She looked over to see Gina in the process of trying to wear her wedding gown. Tracey, in a post, noted her future mother-in-law was in a struggle to get her wedding dress over her head but was stuck in the process. What could have really pushed Gina to do something like this? Tracey felt as if she received a hard punch in the stomach.
Not Feeling Well
Tracey noted she blurted out the words “‘what the heck?!’ and before long, Gina was stuttering as though she was put in a life and death situation. She kept shouting, ‘Oh my God! Oh My God! Oh, God!’ Gina was caught in the act, and this caused her to be spinning like she was mad as she was trapped in the dress. No one would have expected a situation like this to happen and coming from Gina. If you think this was the worse, you may want to brace for the follow-up events about to be unfolded.
Tracey only managed to get a quick view of the horrifying scene as she had to rush over to the older woman to tell her to get her hands off her designer dress. However, this was definitely easier said than done as Gina was genuinely stuck in Tracey’s wedding dress. Tracey had to lend a helping hand so the woman could get the dress off. But, sure enough, the moment was filled with lots of anxiety and desperate feelings. Tracey had a fright and was nervous that the dress might get torn in the process.
Demanding For Cooperation
Tracey was pretty much worried about the safety of her dress and had the funniest gut feeling that the dress’s sheer back would be ripped while trying to get it of Gina. As for Gina, she was not the most cooperative as she was relatively pushed into a panic attack ever since being caught in the act of trying to fit the dress. After all, she was now stuck in the dress, and that was the greatest problem. At times, good intentions and plans may not go the way we expect them as we are about to discover…
Torn and Destroyed
The act of simply removing the dress turned out to be a huge war with the material involved. Then the unthinkable, unwantable, and annoying thing happened…there was a rip! Tracey’s heart stopped for a while as she saw the damage that was unfolding before her eyes. Gina had actually torn a hole in the dress as she tried to make her way out of it. Tracey was really heartbroken and made a post detailing how the sheer back of her dress came to ruin as Gina tried to get out of it.
A Costly Waste
The woman burst the side zipper and left a nasty footprint on the dress’ train to make the whole situation worse. For sure, everyone could understand the frustration and irritation Tracey must have been experiencing. Gina had a lot of answering to do, and Tracey couldn’t wait to hear them. But, seeing she always believed she was right, was Gina about to accept responsibilities for this misfortune? Tracey didn’t even care for apologies at this point as she stood with her wrecked expensive dress in her hand.
Tracey couldn’t seem to find the words to express how she was feeling and the level of distress that came over her while she stared at her torn dress. She had to hold onto her head quickly before she let the rude words escape her mouth at the time. It was hard to really keep quiet as much as she didn’t have all the words to say. She was overcome with grief as though one of dearest family member was just murdered viciously right before her eyes. She had taken too much from Gina, and this was one she couldn’t get over that easily.
Not Forgiving Her
Gina was the cause of many of Tracey’s miseries from the get-go, but this time the damage that was done was basically unbearable. Tracey could not believe this woman could be so wicked, and without a doubt, she held Gina responsible for the damage done. Gina had gone above and beyond to cause her future daughter-in-law lots of pain and agony, and she even shamelessly displayed her level of jealousy and possessive behavior. So, what was the response that Gina gave for this action?
A Befitting Response
All Tracey wanted to know was what Gina really thought when she decided to try on her dress. When asked, Tracey noted she responded that she wanted to know if the dress could really fit her and if it could hold on her, then it was clear the dress could easily fit Tracey”. But to add pain to insult, not only did Gina ruin Tracey’s gorgeous wedding dress, but she also started body-shaming her again. Once again, Gina was mocking Tracey about her weight.
Tracey had fitted the dress previously, so she knew it was perfect for her, but if it were a case where it didn’t fit Gina, it would mean Tracey had a lot of work. But sure enough, the dress sat well on Tracey as though it was designed especially for her. Gina had certainly crossed the line this time, and she was close to disowning Gina from her life. So, we’ve heard from both ladies, but what would be the man’s response standing in the middle of the two ladies…Rick.
Tracey was not the only one in shock and disgust at what Gina did, but Rick was also furious and upset at the stunt his mother performed. He was completely disgusted at the whole behavior. He believed his mother getting a hold of the dress was not such a bad idea as maybe she only wanted to check it out. After all, she had gone to some extreme lengths to break up his past relationships, but Rick was up to the heights with his mother’s behavior and wouldn’t let her get away with it this time around. Bear in mind, Tracey was the love of his life.
In a Dream World
In addition to Gina’s strange behavior, the couple also noticed she brought many flowers to the room. Obviously, she was trying to pretend to be the bride, and it was a game she was playing way too hard. This is rather strange if you ask us. Gina had a bizarre attachment to her son, and it seemed rather disturbing to many people. It seems as though if she got the opportunity, she would marry her son so that he wouldn’t leave her side. But, Gina had a weird obsession, and her terrible antics were not close to finished.
For Tracey, she simply wanted Gina to pay for the cost of mending the dress. However, Gina’s overall response meant that the request was a little too much, seeing she had no intentions of doing right by the couple. The dress was costly, and Gina showed no interest in paying a single dollar to help repair the dress. After all, she was not too happy with the cost in the first place, so that she couldn’t care less. Her next action was about the worst yet.
Tracey noted Gina never showed any interest in helping to pay for the repairs done to the dress. A portion of the dress’ train was also torn apart. Unfortunately, Tracey could not tell the cost of the repairs on her own without having an experienced and skilled seamstress do an evaluation. In addition to not wanting to pay forward for the damages she caused, it seems she had more troubles up her sleeve for the couple to be unleashed.
Gina could have easily apologized to the couple for what she did, but she refused. She instead started to scold Tracey once more for spending so much money on a single dress from the beginning. Thinking this would be Gina’s initial reaction based on how she previously responded, you deserve a little reward for your skilled thinking. Let us be honest, when someone has done wrong to us, the least we expect them to do is work to get things going right.
In a post, Tracey detailed how instead of apologizing for her actions, Gina decided to make it clear ho she wasted money on a wedding dress. It seems as though her troubles getting into the dress was a way of saying the dress was too much and a little too extravagant. But, there were so many other ways to bring her point across to the couple. There was no need to destroy something that didn’t belong to her. With this, Tracey decided it was best to come up with a plan.
Tracey was unable to control her anger, and as such, she turned to Reddit to see if she could get some advice from her friends there. She considered bringing the law in the matter and having them deal with Gina but felt she needed to get some words from other persons on the matter first. But Rick never wanted the matter to reach so far where his fiance and matter had to deal with the court and its problems. After all, their wedding was just a few weeks away. So, what did the public have to say on the matter?
Justifying Her Needs
Tracey had a strong feeling that the least she could get from Gina was some compensation for the dress she destroyed. She said she knew it was just a dress, but the whole matter was deeper than that. The future bride felt the wrong that was done to her was much more than money. For sure, Tracey needed Gina to get off her high horse and do the simplest thing and apologize. Those on Reddit agreed with her and believed that should be the first step.
Aside from those supporting her, most Reddit users were a bit confused and critical about how Gina was behaving. These stories always seem to spread fast across the internet, and soon after Tracey made her post, it was all over the internet. In Gina’s eyes, she did nothing wrong, but around the world, thousands thought otherwise, and they showed their disgust all over social media. Would Gina ever have an idea of what the online world thought? Well, a lot of Redditors were discussing the issue.
One Reddit user voiced her opinion and noted Gina should be given the ultimatum of paying for the damages for the dress or be asked to stay away from the couple’s wedding. If you were like Tracey or in her position, would you present this ultimatum to your prospective mother-in-law? Even though it seemed like a harsh decision, the situation at the time was relatively extreme. Many Redditors needed to get their taste of revenge, while others had a different stance.
Back to Reddit
One other Reddit user noted they were disgusted to the point they wanted to vomit after reading about Tracey’s troubles. This was only one of the many horrifying reactions to what the bride-to-be was going through. But, with the online protests aside, what was Tracey’s plan where the matter was concerned? They reached a point where the two ladies completely stopped talking to each other, and there was a strong tension between them. After some months had passed, Tracey went back to Reddit to let everyone know what was going on.
The couple had decided (mostly by Tracey) that Gina’s invitation to the wedding should be denied. Rick gave the impression that he had followed through with the promise, but Tracey soon realized that he actually asked the whole thing and didn’t live up to his promise. Rick was now in a position where he had to choose between the two women as the conflict was soaring from the look of things. It was as if their relationship was now on the line.
Rick once again failed Tracey in keeping this simple promise even though he said he would carry out the plan. This one thing pushed their relationship practically over the edge! Sadly, the couple canceled their wedding. Even though the two are still in a relationship and staying true to the commitments they made with each other, Tracey noted once Gina was still in the picture, it would be hard to go the distance with him. She believes it would be hard for them to go on that way.
Staying in the Know
Months after Tracey made the last update on Reddit, she reached out to them again to give an update on the latest activities. She gave a full update on everything Gina was doing. One of the best things to come from all of it was that Rick was staying clear of his mother. Tracey gave the ultimatum to Rick that if he didn’t do as she said, he would have to go on without her. However, Gina was still on the warpath.
Tracey was keeping connected with Rick’s messages, so she knew if he was staying true to her and keeping every promise he made to her about their commitment. But from the look of things, it seems as though Rick was still guilty. A lot of women choose this route when they are trying to keep a watch on their man to see if he is cheating. As for Tracey, she wanted to see if he was contacting his mother and to think it was getting calm…things were about to escalate in weirdness!
All or Nothing
Tracey was now at the point where she would make a conclusion on her thoughts about Gina. With a year break, meaning no contact nor interaction, could there be any new development that’s on the good side? But, it seems as though Gina was trying to reach out to them. For sure, it would be great if both women could mend their differences and work together with the past pushed behind them. So, what could Gina possibly have to say to Tracey at this point?
The moment Gina reached out to the couple, she had to say to them that it wasn’t anything nice. This time around, she had really psychotic behavior! At the crack of dawn, she would ring the couple’s phone and then slip mean and downgrading notes under their front door. In addition, she would leave all kinds of nasty texts on their phones. Tracey noted she and Rick go shopping every Wednesday night, and while out, she would notice Gina moving around watching them as they go along. This was really weird and creepy, to say the least.
More Bridal Drama on Reddit
If people are told how to dress for a wedding, they may not take too nicely to such demands, especially if it involves body-shaming. Our next focus is about a bride who made a post on social media to her wedding guests. Whenever a message like this is shared online, it always seems to make its way to Reddit. In the message, the bride-to-be gave a structured listing of her wedding plans that would be hosted in Hawaii. Her instructions were really obnoxious and over-the-top.
A lot of brides will ask their guests to follow the selected theme as best as possible, as well as the general procedures they may set for their special day. However, it is a small percentage that you will see ask their guests to go out of the way to find the money to buy the clothing preferred by the bride in a bid to satisfy her desires. The brides oftentimes choose the color coding for their bridesmaids, and while many guests may disagree with the fashion sense, they simply go with the plan to help make their loved one’s day special.
The prospective bride started off her post on a nice note with a pleasing greeting and lots of pleasantries which quickly led to the question, “Who’s ready for Hawaii 2019?” With that revelation came the note that the event was still a few months away (18 to be exact!), and she had a few things to let her guests be mindful of. Interestingly, there was not much surprise when she started to mention the initial dress code needed for the event. The woman was sure to put her reasons for her request and that the requirements came early so guests could have enough time to get the right dress for the event. She also noted that the guide ensured her routines in her reception were well organized and coordinated.
Most stories of this nature oftentimes include people going over their budget for their clothes, but it is just the tip of the iceberg where this is concerned. This next story is about to blow your mind! The backlash on the post came mainly because of how she said what she did. Apparently, her dress code came in five categories, and this also involved the different sizes of people…yeah, you read right – their sizes! Categories included women weighing from 100-160 pounds; men from 100 to 200 pounds; women from over 160 pounds; men over 200 pounds, and children. Sure enough, the strict dress codes can be challenging, but body-shaming is way over the limit. No one expected they would go through this when they accepted to attend the event.
The post had to be investigated a little further to find out more about the requirements, and it noted that women (weights ranging from 100-160 pounds) had to wear orange suede pants and velvet green sweaters. In addition to this, they had to wear Louboutin heels (mandatory!) which cost an average of $700 a pair. She also insisted that it be red heels as they produced a good foot shape; but, the footwear dilemma is for another day! This bride-to-be added that scarves had to be worn around the neck and not any “off-the-shelf” scarf but precisely Burberry-branded cashmere. The scarf price was in addition to the already exuberant wardrobe cost.
Purple or Die
The men in the 100-200 weight category would bring on a whole new level of weirdness. Their outfit was much cheaper than the women in the same weight bracket, but it included furry purple jackets and helmets that featured beer can holders. This outfit should be paired with white sneakers. If that overall outfit wasn’t crazy enough, the bride requested that all men in this group come presented with glowsticks! If you ask us, this is more than weird but rather insane!
As for the women in the over 160 pounds bracket, they got themselves into a position worth pondering about. They were asked to wear full black – yeah, black at a wedding! They were instructed to make it be black pants and a black sweater, and even though it didn’t have to be a fuzzy kind, it should still have a little designer touch to it. To add to the dark look of the dressing, they should complement with black heels. We are not sure which is more embarrassing – whether they were placed in categories according to their weight or that they had to attend a wedding in a full black outfit.
The weirdness in this event planning never stopped there as men who fell in the over 200 pounds category had the weirdest outfit set. It was ridiculous if you ask us. The bride gave them a setting for hunting rather than a wedding as they were asked to don camouflage outfits. All this inappropriate dressing and mismatch would go with black sneakers. But, what on this heart was she thinking about if she believed people were going to follow these guidelines?
The bride set her law, and there was nothing anyone could do about it, especially the guests. The final category was the children, and they were not spared the wrath of the fashion requirements. They had to go by a strict dress code as they had a part to play in the event, and it needed to go on point. All children had to wear red, and during the event, they had to perform a piece where they would form the shape of a heart. As such, a pure red shade had to be worn and nothing else!
If you believe this outlandish wearing of “costumes” would be enough for the weird day, then you have another guess coming as they were forced to get these outfits for just a part of the event. The bride insisted that in addition to this weird outfit, each guest had to walk with an extra pair of “formal clothing” as, after the performance, they would have to change over. Could this be deemed a military operation?
Even though the formal wear was free from all the strict guidelines, the bride still insisted the guests bear in mind the type of venue the event would be hosted. It was in an upscale area, so they still had to maintain an exquisite style.
It is relatively easy for everyone to label the dress code as being a big joke, and from reading the rest of the post she made, you might realize it was not a matter to joke about. She was pretty serious about the outlines she had given.
She never held back with her words and noted how important it was for everyone to follow those rules. She included the fact that she did her research on the cost and said it would roughly cost each person one thousand dollars.
With such demands from her wedding guests, it came as a surprise to us that she would have a fit over the response on her post, indicating that it came off as pushy. For sure, not many people would be willing to give up that much cash on a one-night event. To make things seem fair from her angle, she used the 18-month period as a form of consolation that they had enough time. For a fact, not everyone would agree to this, and we can just imagine that not many people eventually attending this bizarre and demanding event.
For a fact, the bride’s privacy had to be clicked in order to get the details to share on Reddit. Apparently, this message was meant for her friends and close family only and probably those who got invitations. With her wishes aside, the story went viral all over the internet.
Before long, the post was shared well over ten thousand times, and with the continued shares online came to a lot of comments, especially on Reddit. Many people saw her post as a body-shaming tactic and labeled her a narcissist. Other Redditors, however, found the colors to be the biggest and most annoying issue.
Her friends had all right to voice their opinions about the dress code the bride shoved on them. One person went as far as to illustrate the weird reality of how they would look if this desire was fulfilled. They noted the looks were quite hilarious but shameful and insulting. The colors were just too much and the price tags attached to each item were quite ridiculous too. To add to all that, the Hawaii venue was not yet in the already costly package. With the country being so hot, all those velvet and corduroy are a setup for extensive sweating.
Response From The Bride
The Bridezilla apparently found out that her private post was circulating all over the internet, and she was not too pleased about it. She thought it would be best to scold her friends for the way the message got out, and as you would believe, her reprimanding went viral on Reddit too! The bride-to-be was really upset and went on to state her level of disappointment with the betrayal of her close friends and family. There was unbelief that one of her friends could choose to do her like this in public and promised that whenever the snitch is found, they would definitely be paid for their actions.
The bride was on a mission to find out who could have let out her private details in that manner and went as far as to plan a “polygraph party” at her home. She went as far as getting an authentic polygraph test from Amazon at the cost of $99, and she believed this would help her get the answers she needed. Interestingly, she admitted that anyone who decided not to show up would be labeled as guilty. From all indications, you may want to stay clear of this lady’s bad sides.
The Right Equipment
So, after taking on the role of a detective, what type of tool did she purchase? Apparently, if you need to get the truth out of someone, you may want to follow her tips on what to do. Possibly, a cheaper and less effective polygraph test would not get the job done, so she decided to go above and beyond with the cost. She went for an advanced lie-detecting technology machine – the highest one available. She needed the truth!
No Holding Up
The bride believed that if anyone had any concerns or issues with her post, they should have approached her. With all the craziness going on, she had so much more in store for those who refused to abide by her guidelines. She went as far as saying anyone who refused to join her synchronized dance would be punished accordingly. Some of these punishments include joining the venue cleaning team to clear the area after the ceremony, donating money for their honeymoon, or doing other available service duties.
To conclude her post, the bride gave a “no care” attitude as she made it clear she couldn’t care less about who wasn’t excited about her event and the plans she had for it.
Enough is Enough
With the additional posts the bride made, some of her attendees had reached the point where they were now disgusted by the behavior. One person went as far as detailing a long list of criticism about how the whole issue was going, and without a surprise, the invitation was turned down.
For a fact, we cannot be angry at that person for the way they feel nor for the decision they took to opt-out. If you were in a similar position, we could tell your response may have been the same. The cost of the dress code and other expenses involved was way too much, and then to say you could turn your guest into helpers at the event is out of bounds. Really, though, how does one ask their guests to become a servant just for some stupid reasons?
The Internet on Fire
Many people had a lot of criticizing comments regarding the post, and that’s quite understandable. But, there were a few praising comments in between, and with her last post, the discussion was perked once more. Most of the comments this time highlighted the craziness that was involved with the whole story.
Many people actually began wondering if it was real due to the nature of the details, but we can tell you it is real! But with all the craziness aside, many people agitated at the bride for her body-shaming behavior and bullying attitude.
Redditors always have some extra time on hand to make the most out of every situation and post. After seeing the post with this bride, one Redditor decided to make a physical highlight of what the event may have looked like. The illustration was done to prove a point, and without saying much, a lot of key points were mentioned. Many people found the “Pepsi hat” to be extremely funny, and sure enough, the mere fact that she tried to class her guests based on their weight is hilarious too.
With the endless words she had to put out, she was clear she was ready for war against anyone who disagreed with her. She also attacked those who made negative comments about her posts. After finding out her post had gone viral, she snapped into an emotional breakdown – one that came with lots of anger. According to the bride, her position as a “certified spiritual healer” has justified her actions and decisions. But, as she claimed, her attitude towards people would be much nicer and warmer if she was a healer.
In her tirade, she tried to justify her funny and bizarre color choices. You may have thought she had the perfect reasoning behind what she did, but it was not so much the case. According to her, the all-black outfits and camouflage were a symbolization of the devil that would get kicked out. Well, some religious folks may see with that reasoning, but the bigger picture was why she had to choose the heavier guests to depict that – it was rather dehumanizing! But, what was the response from the public with regards to the devil linkage?
It seems the more the bride spoke, the more she was getting everyone upset and possibly pouring endless fuel on a raging fire. She had a hard time quenching her satisfaction, especially after she went to the extreme of putting her guests in categories based on their weights. It came as no surprise when she tried to justify her actions. But, if you think the craziness had ended, brace yourself. The post drew more attention from international enthusiasts who really wanted to know more. With the bride’s ridiculous demands and the negative feedback, it could be likely the wedding wouldn’t be called off. Would it? Let’s keep going to find out more…
Many Redditors were already in awe about the bride’s post based on weight discrimination, and it was quite a negative divide. The moment they learned about the exorcism as it relates to the heavier guests being linked to a demonic attachment, they were more enraged. It may not have seemed hurtful from the bride’s point of view, but many people saw it as a disturbing reality. The weird bride couldn’t seem to get things right, and as they went further, people’s initial opinions of her started to change.
The bride was now in a tight spot and seemed to be looking for solace and support from those she upset by trying to tell the story of how she and her husband met. She claimed they met at a “psychic desensitization chamber.” But, how does this story help? After hearing the story, people understood she was not the average “girl next door” and said the guidelines were part of her traditions. Fair enough, no one would want to deny anyone the rights to their traditions, especially on their big day, but she could have, perhaps, set the guides a little better? Then, the cost resurfaced, and that was another issue.
Paying the Charges
Bear in mind the guests already had their cost to consider in sourcing their outfit for the wedding, so to ask the guests for another one thousand dollars to get their suits was over the top again. This she also had justification for as the couple believed the suits they would wear would pave the way for prosperity they saw in the future coming their way. Adding sentimental meaning to your special day is perfectly fine, but going for crazy ones as these is rather too much.
The way things are going with these strange events just shows how low people’s awareness levels are, and perfecting every detail for the big day means a lot. Sure enough, everyone deserves to be happy and pleased on their special day, but that does not mean the expenses should be rested on the shoulders of the guests. Money doesn’t “grow on trees,” so making high demands from people is quite unreasonable and selfish. Bear in mind that the expensive outfits and the additional one thousand dollars are in addition to travel to Hawaii for the wedding.
With this strange and interesting story reaching a conclusion, we are sure many people are wondering if the wedding still went through. We all are waiting to know the outcome as we have literally invested lots of time and interest in this story. We wouldn’t want to know they had a hard time with their new life, but in the midst of it all, we would want them to understand the financial pressure they are putting on their friends and family and take that into consideration. In addition, this bride needs to look into what she is doing and make a few changes as no one should be bullied the way she went about it. If she, however, continues along the same path, we can tell only a few guests will be there. It’s possible one day she will have the wedding of her dreams.
