Most people want their weddings to go according to plan, and that is why a bride was left frustrated when her mother-in-law kept on going against her wishes.
The groom then took to Reddit and explained that his bride-to-be didn’t want anyone outside her bridal party to see her gown before she walked down the aisle as she wanted to surprise him and her father.
“When the moms and bridesmaids picked out their dresses my mom insisted on wearing white so my wife said F this and put the whole wedding party in white. Including the mothers and grandmothers,” he wrote.
“My mom, a social media wh*re, kept trying to get my wife to post her dress for her friends on Facebook because she said everyone wanted her to do it,” the groom said.
“She was mad that she didn’t even get to post pictures of my wife trying on a different wedding dress and at least allow her to post the rejects.
“My wife said no and my mom was pissed.”
On the day of the wedding, the groom’s mother shared photos of the bride’s dress on Facebook 30 minutes before the ceremony, ruining the surprise and leaving the bride feeling betrayed.
“My wife wanted to surprise her dad just as much as me getting the first look of her dress while he walked her down the aisle. She even had the two photographers posted so they could get shots of the first look. Obviously, this was important to my wife,” the husband wrote.
“Her dad saw himself tagged in the photo so instead he saw his daughter on Facebook.
“My wife didn’t find out until after the ceremony because of last-minute preparations.”
The Reddit user continued: “After the ceremony, I kicked my mum out of the wedding and she wasn’t invited to the reception. My younger sister and my dad also left, along with a few family members.
“My brother and I covered for the mother of the groom dance by leading an impromptu chicken dance to lighten the mood. The DJ was super awesome and filled in the spaces with fun songs so at least the reception wasn’t a total bummer.
“I really don’t even want my mom in my life now because what she did was petty and selfish. She pulled well maybe my FIL shouldn’t have had his phone on him and my wife shouldn’t have been such a stuck up diva about her dress. I have no interest in continuing a relationship with my mom at this point. My dad thinks I should put this behind me because it’s “typical women drama” but I told him it wasn’t and mom’s just a petty and what she does is not normal at all.”
People on Reddit were quick to share their thoughts on the matter, with one person writing: “You’re starting your marriage right: establishing that your wife is your priority over your mother. It takes balls to stand up to your family, and you handled it very well.”
Another wrote: “It was a simple request and she couldn’t honor it. And I absolutely adore your bride.”
A third said: “This is not typical. This is your mother shamelessly crossing boundaries and hurting your bride on purpose. If you don’t take a stand now, then she will be posting every detail of your life on her social media. Your mom needs help. Her behavior is inexcusable.”
