The mother hadn't seen the bride until the wedding day and declared that she is unappealing for her son.
A guy dumped his bride when his mother saw her for the first time during the wedding ceremony and said that she is "short and ugly." According to reports, the groom's mother had only seen images of her soon-to-be daughter-in-law and had never met her in person before the wedding, reports Yabaleft.
She was disgusted by her physical looks when she saw her at the wedding and stated she is too short and unappealing for her son. She then told her son to call off the wedding because she couldn't let him marry the Tunisian woman, Lamia Al-Labawi.
Photos from the beginning of the event show bride Lamia Al-Labawi beaming in her wedding gown as her fiance mops his brow in a dinner suit. Lamia shared her feelings on social media.
She stated on her blog that she is an "orphan" and that the wedding preparations had cost her a lot of money. She was really ashamed, she said, and she couldn't look people in the eyes after being rejected at the wedding since she could hear them talking and making side comments about her, per Mirror.
