Teen wedding guest asks if she 'destroyed' bride's big day with 'flashy' green dress.


Most of us are familiar with the "don't wear white to a wedding" law of nuptial etiquette, but what about a seemingly safe sage green?

So, when a conflicted wedding guest decided to consult the moral compass of the internet otherwise known as Reddit's 'Am I the As*hole' about whether or not she ruined the bride's special day, people were quick to help deem a verdict.

"AITA for wearing a sage green dress for a wedding?"

I recently attended a wedding and now the bride has been accusing me of destroying her big day. I am 17 years old, and the wedding it's from my dad's friend daughter. One of her demands was for girls to be modest, simple color, and makeup. The request was okay to me because it was her event.

The big day came and I wore a satin sage dress, which is beautiful, but still modest, and for the makeup it was just some shimmery eyeshadow with some transparent gloss. During the wedding, the bride's mom suddenly asked to talk to me alone which was weird, since she should've been talking to my dad instead.

She bought me to the bride's dressing room and it was awkward. The bride started to berate me for wearing the dress saying I'm too flashy, I'm stealing her spotlight and gave me the alternative to leave the wedding or wear a black dress that's double my size, and remove my makeup.

I refused, because the outfit the bride wanted me to wear would've been too bothersome for me to be pulling the dress all the time plus my parents would be asking about my original dress.

The bride started crying, and I told my parents everything she demanded, then they got angry at her. Because of it, they said they're not going to give any wedding money to her, which lead to a fight between my dad and his friend. Today the bride sent me hateful messages saying I ruined her wedding. AITA?

Imagine being jealous of a teenager as a fully grown adult on your wedding day...

Clearly this bride isn't as excited about her 'big day' as she made it sound if she's worried that her dad's friend's teenage daughter is 'stealing the spotlight' in perfectly normal wedding attire. Green isn't an off-limits color in the standard rulebook of wedded bliss so if this bride was prepared to throw a fit, she should've sent some memos out first.

Of course, the jury of internet strangers was eager to weigh in on this attire-themed drama. Here's what people had to say:

I had to look up 'sage green' expecting it to be like a super flashy jewel green color.... it's like old lettuce color. How can a color be more simple? I just don't see the problem... sounds like she was just jealous that you looked nice in her proximity. NTA (Not the As*hole)

NTA. If a teenager wearing a nice dress can ruin her wedding, then she DESERVES it to be ruined. What an absolutely bizarre reaction from her. God knows what she was thinking.

NTA. The bridezilla ruined her own wedding.

NTA. The only color you can't wear is white. Bride is just jealous of you and shouldn't be dictating what makeup you should wear and what color to wear.

So, there you have it!

Everyone agreed unanimously here that this teenager was not at all wrong to wear a green dress to a wedding and whatever the bride feels about her style is a manifestation of her own insecurities and not her problem. Good luck, everyone!
