"I made the bride a promise that the dress would never be seen in a photo. She looked me dead in the eye and nodded," wrote the bridesmaid.
Remember when Monica from 'Friends' said, "as long as she is not wearing a white dress to my wedding she can wear whatever she wants." It seems like somebody forgot about the etiquette every woman abides by, for a wedding they are attending as guests. This story is about a Mother-in-Law and a loyal friend who took it upon herself to "fix" the fact that her friend's mother-in-law was making her friend cry by wearing a white wedding dress to her son's wedding. The friend, Theloniou5, took to Reddit to share the story featuring the obnoxious mother-in-law. She mentions in her story how the MIL was annoyed because the bride had decided to install a Hoopa, and she on the other hand didn't want the Jewish community to be represented.
"I was at the bridal shower when MIL found out the "pretty canopy" was actually a Hoopa. She almost lost her shit in front of a bunch of people, but managed to compose herself and laugh angrily that "if the Jews were being represented so would the Catholics." In my head I heard a record screech, guys... they aren't catholic." She continued, "So after much fighting, a lot of screaming, crying, threatening to pull money (which is funny because she contributed nothing), MIL lost. The boot was firmly placed, and nothing was moving it. Hoopa yes, catholic priest no." The mother-in-law was nowhere to be seen on the day of the wedding and showed up very late, directly in front of everyone, wearing a white wedding dress.
"Thirty minutes later as we are helping the bride into her dress; guess who shows up. If you guessed MIL, you win a cookie! Flushed from coming up the stairs, (she is not a light woman) in full hair and makeup...and a white dress. Not ivory, not cream, full snow-f***ing-white. The dress was clearly a wedding dress; it was even from David's Bridal (which she would later shout at me). Floor-length satin with a sweetheart beaded top, a bit of a train, and off-white lace on the bottom. The dress was even tailored to her, this has been a long con she has orchestrated."
The friend couldn't stand the fact that the evil woman made the bride cry and she made a promise that the dress will not show up in any photo, She wrote, "We did our best to console the bride, touched up her makeup, and I made her a promise that the dress would never be seen in a photo. She looked me dead in the eye and nodded. The game was on."
She continued, "The venue only supplied white wine and champagne for the wedding party. But I grabbed my purse and ran down into the reception area and managed to flag an attendant by the bar and bribe him with a cool 20$ to give me a bottle of red early. I cracked the baby open, filled a solo cup to the brim with it, and stalked outside. After a few swigs from the bottle for courage, I went over to where everyone was getting ready to take photos." The friend looked at the bride and got her "nod of approval", she wrote," I pulled out my phone, held it in front of my face like I was reading a text, and walked straight into MIL. I poured the entire cup of red wine down the front of her dress, jumped back, and gasped."
The reaction was exactly the way they had expected, she gave her a murderous look before screaming that she would sue the bride's friend. She continued," People had to hold her back because she wanted to fight me. Eventually, she switched from screaming to sobbing and sank to the ground, and threw a tantrum on the floor. Everyone moved back and just let her go at it and walked away to go take photos. It was surreal as if everyone just hit their limit and noped out from around her. The 12-year-old flower girl whipped out her phone and snapped a few photos much to our amusement."
Following this incident, the MIL had no choice but to leave the ceremony to change, she showed up again, this time in a dark green dress. This story blew up on Reddit and garnered thousands of comments, a user Rheinys wrote, "What the fuck is wrong with that MIL?? What did her son say to all of this?? Girl, you are a hell of a bridesmaid!" Another comment read, "This story deserved to blow up. This is exactly what movies are made of!"
