Woman told to leave ex’s wedding; bride sees her post. ‘You wore a wedding dress.’


The mega-popular 'Am I the A*shole' discussion board on Reddit gets a lot of eyeballs. It's inevitable that once in a while, a reader recognizes themselves in one of the stories. Today, that happened. After a woman showed up to her ex's wedding and her story went viral, the bride herself entered the Reddit fray with her own version of events.

Here is the original post, in which a woman wrote: '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.

OP added:

My dress was fine in my opinion. I didn't wear white. It was a red lacy dress, but she’s acting like I wore my wedding dress and engagement ring to the wedding. OP says the dress was similar to this one.

Hours later, the bride herself took to Reddit to say: 'My wedding was ruined by a jealous ex and she decided to brag about this on Reddit.'

My husband and I have been married for 2 weeks and I’m already having regrets. My husband’s ex has really been making things difficult for us.

She makes sure my stepchildren call me by first name rather than any term of endearment. Our wedding happened to fall on one of her days with the kids. My husband invited her for reasons I am still unsure of. I was aware of her receiving an invitation but my husband never informed me that she had accepted.

She came with the kids an hour later, I assumed she was dropping them off but she had intentions to stay. She was dressed more elegantly than me and that felt off, so I asked her to leave. She disrespectfully told me that she would be staying.

My husband and mother in law told me that she was like family and would not be leaving. I was disgusted by this, because it was obvious what this woman was doing.

She posted the story on here but in a way that made me out to be a toxic villain in the story.

The story appeared on the popular page of Reddit and was also on a friend’s TikTok 'for you' page. It wasn’t hard to identify myself because I recognized the dress, and she also used my real name in the story.

I don’t understand why she is doing this because we had been civil with each other until now. And I’m very offended by the way she degraded me in her defensive comments and by the fact that my husband took her side.

Joke's on the ex, however, because after showing everyone on Reddit the link to her dress (above), both comments sections filled up with a relentless refrain in favor of the bride.

Here was the original, combative back and forth between the ex and commenters on her original post.

It’s literally a wedding dress that comes in red. That’s what it’s being sold as.

closureseekingex OP responded:

Didn’t buy it from Amazon it was not listed as a wedding dress in stores. That’s a reference rather than the exact source.

….because the bride asked her to leave. The bride.

closureseekingex OP responded:

But the groom wanted me there.

You wore a flaming red wedding dress. I bet a million bucks no one else there was dressed in something so attention-getting. The only other thing that would make you more of an asshole is if this was a daytime wedding.

closureseekingex OP responded:

I dressed my children in red as well. I was not an odd ball.

On the bride's post, the ex got even more grief.

I just and found the post she made. WHAT. A. FUCKING. AH. And then to go post about it to soothe herself to make sure she has people telling her she's NOT the ah by intentionally leaving out bits of the story. INSANE.

Annulment in the first 30 days dear. The husband did seem like a jerkface in her post.

Now let's hope her maid of honor prints and frames the comments for a fantastic divorce-present.
