Weddings ought to be special moments free of drama or shame. However, some weddings do not end up as expected because some shameful events take place. Someone somewhere will do something that will leave people cringing. Most of the time, this event becomes a monumental thing when remembering the wedding.
Here are some wedding shames instances that may make you cringe.
When Your Mother decides to ruin your wedding night
Well, one Reddit user was very annoyed with this intrusion and offered a different perspective on what could be the solution.
Another user gave details about the whole event making it even more cringe. This Reddit user ensured that we had the mental pictures of how weird and inappropriate the whole night might be if the bride decides to spend the wedding night next to her mother’s suite.
A user by the name Nachocheese50 viewed this wedding shaming instance from a unique perspective. According to this individual, the bride was an enabler of this weird happening.
Among the many ways to deal with this situation, was to ensure that the mother got to spend the night in a different suite, because more than any other thing, their comfort and freedom was important.
The bride views the friend as the wedding-shaming factor
Wedding shaming may also come in form of the bride’s need for perfection. The friend wants to be at the bride’s wedding as a maid of honour, but the bride sees this good intention from a totally different perspective. The bride views a plus-size Maid of Honour as shaming.
Replies to the post
A Reddit user tried to reason with this wedding-shaming thought. From the response, one got a novel perspective towards what weddings actually are. Weddings are not just about perfect photos, but more about celebrating the bride’s monumental life event, which could not be complete without her best friend.
This Reddit user must have been annoyed by the post that portrayed the friend in a negative light.
Another Reddit response gave a unique perspective on what weddings should be about. People forget that weddings are about love, other details come after this major factor.
While one bride may view perfect photos as the thing that makes the wedding memorable, another bride views authentic photos capturing real events as perfect.
Authenticity seems to be the antidote for the fear of imperfect photos.
An event could either be a wedding-shaming one, or a memorable one depending on who is experiencing it. Additionally, you would want your real friend to be at your wedding, regardless of their body size or shape.
The Bride Created a Dress code list that became a wedding-shaming factor
When one thinks that other people may create a wedding shaming moment, sometimes it is the groom and the bride who are the unlikely suspects. A bride wrote a list guiding the invited guest on how to dress in her wedding as you can see in the details below.
Someone immediately came to the defence of the bride. The list could be her definition of modest, something that maybe the bride saw as the best way for her day to go down.
This reply shows how guests may be required to certain dressing styles to prevent any instance of a weird dress code, accompanied by the phrase, “But you did not specify…”
Maybe this bride had a cringe experience of seeing an individual dressed inappropriately, like the case of a Reddit user by the name Danivelle. If that is the case, then the fear of something like this happening on her big day could have been the motivation behind writing the list.
You never know the person that will walk into your wedding dressed inappropriately, but he or she exists.
Your goddaughter may decide to give you a heads-up on how they will dress which makes you cringe in advance.
When you decide to wedding shame your sister
When co-parenting with an ex, there is no reason to lie about your wedding. Some partners will show up and shame you. Here is the link to the post.
Wedding where guests were served cake as a meal
When you think you’ve seen enough, then maybe you should hear about a wedding where guests were only given pieces of cake as a meal. A couple somewhere decided to have a wedding where they invited 100 guests only to later feed them with pieces of cake while the whole family got fed with real meals. Here is the story in detail.
The replies illustrated how cringy this whole ordeal must have been. A Redditor by the user name FindOneInEveryCar stated that there were more better ways this couple could have ended their day rather than in such a manner.
While some people saw the main issue as the food itself, another Redditor went deeper. This was a sign of not caring about the guests.
All the time, I was wondering what was the point of the whole event if people would leave unfed, considering it was out of town plus weddings normally involve the feeding of guests and everyone.
When your mother’s speech is cringy
When the mother of the bride stands to speak during the wedding, it’s expected that she’ll shower the bride with praises and advice her of the journey ahead. However, this was not the case for this Reddit user. Her mother said things that insinuated the daughter’s inability to see stay in the marriage for long. As could be seen in this post.
A Redditor by the name newprairiegirl must have felt for the bride. She wrote a comment on how the bride should send the mother a bill with interest for the bet that she made which the daughter won as she remained married for 25 years.
Many aspects may make up for a wedding-shaming event. One may never predict how the end of the wedding day could be because there is a lot that could happen before and during the wedding that could ruin the day.
