Bridesmaid Wears A T-Rex Outfit To Her Sister's Wedding And It's Amazing
When Deanna Adams let her bridal party decide what to wear for the big day, a selection of different pastel coloured halter necks, a few midis and maybe some bright florals were perhaps what she had in mind.
But when her maid of sister sauntered down the aisle in a ballooning T-Rex costume, it's fair to say she stole the show.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Christina said the idea began as a joke when she was told that she could dress in anything she wanted.
When planning her outfit, the 38-year-old from Texas messaged her sister with some rather wacky ideas, including a Doctor Who Tardis.
As the wedding drew nearer, Christina settled on the idea of a T-Rex. And whilst dutifully reminding her sister of her outfit choice, the situation rapidly turned into a game of chicken.
According to Christina, she assumed Deanna would eventually tell her that she couldn't wear the costume, and instead would have to opt for her second option: a more suitable and traditional dress.
However, neither of the sisters backed down and sure enough, Christina walked down the aisle dressed as a T-Rex.
The pictures she shared online soon went viral and the dinosaur bridesmaid soon became somewhat of a sensation.
"A couple of people asked if they could share it, and with my sister's permission I posted it on my Facebook page and allowed the closed group members to share from there - and then it got way bigger than expected," she said.
"But it's nice to see that most people get it, and the few who didn't were at least just showing concern for my sister's feelings, not knowing her or the situation."
Whilst most people saw humour in the situation, others were quick to criticise Christina for acting inappropriately.
Her sister was quick to her defence however, saying the outfit choice was more than just a cheap gag.
"It's not a joke, it's a giant middle finger at spending thousands of dollars and putting ungodly amounts of pressure on ourselves just to please a bunch of people who, in the end, only want free food and drinks." she argued.
"The point was to get married to the man who treats me like I hung the moon, and we did that part."
It's definitely innovative, that's for sure.
