Ahhh, the old “showing up looking good at your ex’s wedding” story.
You’ve probably heard it before…but this one is different…
Check out this woman’s story and let us know if you think she was out of line for wearing a pretty dress to her ex’s wedding.
AITA for showing up at my ex’s wedding in a pretty dress?
“My ex and I had an peaceful divorce. We co-parent our 3 children together and there haven’t really been many issues. My ex is getting married to Stephanie.
I like Stephanie she has been great with my kids and makes my ex happy. My ex invited me to their wedding and I was happy for him. It was my day with the kids so it made sense for me to come was his reasoning. When I arrived at the wedding Stephanie thanked me for dropping the kids off and brushed me off. We had never had any issues before.
I explained that I was going to stay for the reception and she was very upset. I was confused because I assumed she knew I would be in attendance. It turned out she didn’t consider that I would actually accept the invitation. I told her that I was invited and since I took the 2 hour drive I would be staying for the entire duration.
She didn’t like this response. Stephanie asked me to leave and I stood my ground. She went on to complain about my dress upstaging hers. My ex and former mother in law helped her to calm down and the wedding shortly began.
I thought that was the end of it, but later in private Stephanie accused me of trying to ruin her special day. She is convinced that I wanted to show off and make the wedding about my divorce. She said it was rude for me not to leave after the bride requested it because it was her special day.
I told her that I am not responsible for her insecurities and once again reminded her that I have no interest in ”stealing” my ex back.”
And here’s how Reddit users reacted.
One person said she’s 100% an a**hole for doing this.
Another individual had a different take on the whole thing…
And this Reddit user said they’d dress WAY DOWN if they were in this woman’s position.
