It's a classic He Posted, She Posted.
A guy's post on Reddit complaining about his fiancé's dream wedding dress resulted in the wedding being called off.
The saga begins—like most internet dramas do—with a man kvetching about his partner, a woman who is a decade younger. Because his fiancé Emma has a Reddit account, he made a throwaway profile called "josh8449." He might have been smart enough to change his name, but not smart enough to change hers.
The dude, who claims to be 38, asked, "Am I the a-hole for telling my fiancee [a 27-year-old female] her wedding dress choice is way too extravagant and suggesting alternatives?"
He opens the post by explaining how fiscally responsible he is, especially compared to his betrothed:
We are getting married in July of this year, the venue is booked and the wedding is pretty much sorted.
Emma has been researching dresses and has a little scrap book of lots of dresses she likes for ideas but is now looking to buy.
All that's left to get is the bridesmaid dresses and her wedding dress.
We jointly put aside 10k each for the wedding, everything is paid and we have 6k left over which i think could go towards the honeymoon on top of the honeymoon fund we already had.
We aren't the extravagant type at all, then comes the time for Emma to pick her dress. I know everything is more expensive when it has the term wedding attatched to it what i wasn't expecting was an $950 dress plus $120 veil!
