After he inadvertently wore a wedding dress to a wedding, the Original Poster (OP) asked Reddit if he was out of line. Even if he didn’t realize what he was doing.
A Happy Engagement
OP, a young man who is 19, had been friends with a woman (age 20), for a few years. She recently got engaged to her long-time boyfriend.
Celebrating With a Costume Party
About a week ago, OP received a message from his friend about a small costume party she was hosting to celebrate her engagement.
What Costume to Choose?
He asked if there was a theme for the party and she said there wasn’t. Being a Cosplayer, he had many choices for the costume.
A Costume That Fits the Theme
OP decided to attend the party dressed as the Corpse Bride, as he didn’t want to show up in an anime cosplay.
The Big Day
OP arrived at his friend’s house on the day of the party, and everything seemed normal. A few people complimented his costume, and he was having a lot of fun.
A Complete 180
All of the sudden, his friend’s fiancé walked out in a black tuxedo and announced it was actually their wedding.
A Surprise Wedding
Apparently, his friend had seen a video of someone doing this and wanted to do the same thing. The fiancé asked everyone to go to the backyard for the ceremony to begin.
Asking the Groom for Advice
The young man immediately went to the fiancé and asked if he should quickly go home and change his outfit, promising to be back before the ceremony started.
The fiancé told him it was fine since he didn’t know it was a wedding.
Getting Ready for the Big Show
Trusting him, the young man followed everyone outside, and they got married.
Is She Busy or Avoiding Him?
Everything seemed good, and they all went back inside the house for the reception. The young man tried to talk to his friend and celebrate with her, but she kept making excuses to avoid him.
The Wedding Ends but the Drama Begins
Assuming she was just tired from the big day and wanted some alone time, he didn’t bother her after that, and the party soon ended.
The Bride Unloads on Him
Upon arriving home, he received a flurry of angry texts from his friend, accusing him of ruining her wedding. He was confused and asked what he had done wrong.
How Was He Supposed to Know?
His friend became angrier and told him that it was basic knowledge not to wear a wedding dress to a wedding.
He reminded her that he had no idea it was a wedding, and that he had asked her now-husband if he should change, and he said it was fine.
The Groom Turns His Back on Him
She didn’t respond, but he got a text from her husband asking why he would tell her he said it was fine. He responded by telling him that he did say it was fine.
Switching His Story
The husband then blamed him for the fight between him and his wife, saying he should have changed anyway.
Trying to Right His Wrongs
OP tried to apologize, explaining that he would not have worn the dress if he had known it was a wedding, but his friend and her husband blocked him on all social media platforms.
Is He in the Wrong?
He wondered if he was wrong for not changing out of the wedding dress.
Here’s What Redditors Said
Participan1 said he wasn’t in the wrong. They responded, “They had multiple chances to get you to change, and they didn’t take any of them, so getting mad with you after the fact doesn’t make any sense.”
Iggyspots said, “He went as a Corpse Bride. It’s not like he was trying to outshine the bride-to-be by making himself look more attractive.”
Another user wrote, “Good lord – this is what you end up with when 20-year-olds get married.”
