A wedding guest who turned up to the event wearing a wedding dress was accused by the bride of ruining her big day - despite other guests complimenting them on the look.
The bride's look is the easiest one to avoid - basically, just don't wear a white dress. But when a Reddit user was invited to the party of a recently-engaged friend, that's exactly what they decided to do.
In a post on the site, the guest explained that after they received the invite, they'd asked whether there was a theme for the event.
"She said there wasn’t," they wrote, adding: "I’m a cosplayer so I had a lot of choices. I didn’t want to rock up in an anime cosplay, so I thought it would be funny to go to an engagement party as the Corpse Bride."
The only problem was, this wasn't just an engagement party. The bride and groom had tricked guests by claiming the party was a celebration of their engagement, only to reveal it was actually their wedding day.
Recalling the moment they found out, the Reddit user said: "I arrived at her house yesterday and everything seemed normal. A few people complemented my costume and I was having a lot of fun.
"After ten minutes my friend’s fiancé walked out in a black tuxedo and announced this was actually their wedding. Apparently my friend saw a video of someone doing this and wanted to do the same."
Nobody wants two brides at a wedding (well, maybe not nobody), though the guest stressed one important factor - they are not a woman.
"I am a guy. I cosplayed the Emily from Corpse Bride (Who is a dead bride) and had blue paint all over me," they said on Reddit.
Still, there should really only be one wedding dress at a wedding, so the guest asked the fiancé whether he should run home and change.
"He told me it was fine since I didn’t know this was the wedding," the guest claimed.
Unfortunately, it was not fine.
After the wedding, the bride kept 'making excuses' not to talk to the guest, and when he went home he started getting messages from the bride saying he had 'ruined her wedding'.
"I was really confused and asked what I did. That only made her more angry. She told me it was basic knowledge not to wear a wedding dress to a wedding. I reminded her I had no idea it was a wedding and that I asked her now husband if I should change and he said it was fine," the guest wrote.
The husband is then said to have got involved in the debate, claiming the guest should have 'changed anyway' before blocking him on social media.
After the guest asked other Reddit users whether he was the 'a**hole' in the situation, internet users responded to assure him that, no, he wasn't, as he had no idea he'd be attending a wedding when he put the dress on.
"[Not the a**hole], what did she expected? [sic]," one person wrote. "She wanted a surprise wedding. So she shouldn't be surprised that people weren't wearing wedding appropriate cloths. It's her fault, sorry. But she couldn't have both."
