Most people do not expect anyone to steal their thunder on their wedding day.
That is why one groom who recently got married couldn’t believe it when his mother tried to ruin his wedding by making sure was all about her. Fortunately, his younger brother saved the day!
The groom’s brother took to Reddit and explained that his mom had ‘meltdowns’ about the ceremony so it was not shocking when she arrived at the event wearing an ‘incredibly frilly white dress’ that completely overthrew the bride’s gown.
“Last month, my brother got married to the woman he has spent the last 7 years of his life with. My sister-in-law is a wonderful woman and I am more than happy for the two of them,” he wrote.
“Well, my mother being the venomous demon she is decided that one of the most important days in her oldest child’s life MUST be made about her in some way.
“She showed up in an incredibly frilly white bridal dress. Her dress was much more of a bridal dress than the brides that day as well. She was the talk of the whole event, for all the wrong reasons I mind you.”
He continued: “My brother didn’t even know if she would show up after a previous meltdown of hers, but he didn’t even know what to do when he walked down the aisle to see her sitting in the front row. My sister-in-law looked livid as well when she saw her.
“At the lunch afterwards, things only got worse and I knew my mother was going to ruin this day. So, I decided to take one for the team. We were served glasses of red wine at lunch, and I asked for mine to be filled to the brim.
“I walked over to where my mother was sitting and ‘tripped’, dousing her perfect white dress.”
“I nearly got on my knees groveling to apologize and she missed the lunch and much of the first half of the reception driving back home (4 hour round trip) to change into the dress my brother had originally bought for her.
“Lucky for me, no one cared but my mother. The maid of honor even ended up slipping me a text right after the scene telling me that I deserve an Oscar for my performance.”
After the wedding, he received a bottle of wine from his brother and sister-in-law as a thank you.
People on Reddit were quick to share their thoughts, with one person commenting: “Awww how sweet of you! Good on you for doing the right thing.”
Another said: “I enjoyed every part of this story, you’re a hero. God bless you.”
