An upset father has spoken out and revealed that he and his wife were practically banned from his daughter’s wedding because of her ridiculous rule.
According to the man in question, he and his wife were looking forward to their daughter’s wedding after she announced the big news with her girlfriend.
The parents, however, were in for a major shock after the young lady banned dresses and ordered everyone to wear pants on her big day.
As her father pointed out, however, his wife is more “traditional” which is why she never wears anything but skirts and dresses. He also insisted they refuse to step out of their traditional gender roles just because their daughter has an issue with dresses.
“The issue comes with the dress code. They say NO DRESSES OR SKIRTS allowed. Both brides will be in elegant pant suits,” the father wrote as he admitted he and his wife came to terms with their daughter’s relationship with another woman and learned to value their love.
“I suppose you could call both of them more masculine leaning. My wife does not wear pants. Never has, per our faith we believe it to be inappropriate. Our daughter can do as she pleases, we will not.”
After confronting their daughter about the issue, the parents were allegedly told to either wear pants or not show up at the wedding at all.
“My wife is absolutely livid. I told my daughter this violates our belief and how we feel most comfortable,” the father continued.
“I put forth that she now chooses to dress how she prefers, we should be able to dress as we prefer. She stated the only way my wife can wear a dress is if I wear one too. Which is absolutely ridiculous. We are all adults, you cannot force adults to violate their beliefs to dress a certain way.”
After the man’s post went viral, the father received mixed responses with many people calling him out for not abiding by his daughter’s wedding rules.
“She set a dress code that is a direct retaliation to her upbringing, knowing that you probably wouldn’t abide and she/s okay with that,” someone wrote.
“Your wife can’t suck up wearing pants for a couple of hours? I understand that you say this is part of your faith, but the fact that you pulled the line out about what the host demands… it seems like you change the rules to suit you,” another said.
A third suggested: “Usually I don’t support such draconian demands about women’s attire from brides or anyone else really. But the no-dresses/skirts rule is a direct response to the trauma you and your church and your religion wrought on your daughter during her formative years.”
Some readers, however, chose to side with the father as they suggested the bride-to-be could be making her mother feel uncomfortable.
“I don’t blame her for not wanting to wear pants. To some women in my family, that’s beyond uncomfortable and would make them feel exposed. I won’t bare my shoulders and that’s my choice as much as it is for others who like a cute crop top. But the solution is that they don’t attend, not that they try to change the rules,” someone wrote.
