Getting married is supposed to be one of the most exciting days of your life.
Granted, it may come with its stresses and downsides, but usually the people around you will do their utmost to try and make it as smooth as possible for you.
But sadly that isn’t always the case, and one woman was so frustrated with her pal’s fashion choice for the day that she thought it would ruin the whole day. So much so, she’s debating uninviting her from the celebrations.
Taking to Reddit to express her frustration, she explained that her 24-year-old university pal, who she refers to at ‘B’ was very excited about her outfit as it was her first non-family wedding.
She writes: “Now while we are both British, B is ethnically white, where I am South Asian. She said she wanted to wear a sari to my wedding so I told her a few places she could get a nice one and she went shopping .I did tell her that red was our bridal color so it should be avoided.
“Now she’s saying that she fell in love with a red and gold sari and has bought it. I told her that’s the color of my bridal gown and she needs to find another outfit. She said she’s sure it won’t matter on the day but like….that’s the equivalent of someone wearing a white dress to a western wedding.

“She’s refusing to compromise and change her outfit because she loves it so much and she won’t have another occasion in which it’s appropriate for her to wear a sari.
“I don’t want someone wearing red and gold on my wedding day. WIBTA if I uninvited her over this?”
People were quick to also point out how horrified a Western bride would be if someone wore a white wedding dress to their wedding.
One wrote: “She’s insisting on wearing a wedding dress to your wedding. You can stay at home and wear it there.”
“You told her no red and she won’t respect it so no more invitation. If she can’t show respect she’s no longer welcome. That’s a common rule”, another fumed.
Others noted that she was purposefully making the decision, rather than accidentally turning up into something similar.
They wrote: “The difference is knowing that you’re doing that vs making an accidental fashion decision.”
Do you think she’s right to uninvite her? Have your say in the comment section below.
“Exactly, if it was a floor length white evening gown at a western style wedding this would be the same, but she (the maybe-not-anymore-guest) doesn’t seem to understand.
“I think instead of strictly uninviting her, tell her for the 100th time that what she bought is a bridal gown and what you will wear, so it’s inappropriate for her to wear as well, then warn her if she comes in it she won’ t be let in and follow through with it.
“Makes it more obvious to everyone that it’s her own fault not yours, and not any kind of “bridezilla” behavior, at least imo”, one reasoned.
