Woman ‘ruins’ best friend’s surprise wedding after turning up in white dress

A woman was left ‘horrified’ after she turned up to her best friend’s ‘surprise event’ in a white dress – only to discover it was actually her wedding.

Taking to Reddit, the woman explained that her long-time friend invited her on holiday to South Padre Island in Texas – with specific instructions to bring a black dress for a “special event” that would take place during the trip.

While packing for the getaway, she realized that her black dress didn’t fit her anymore so opted for a white one instead, thinking it would be “close enough” to the one her friend requested, the Mirror reports.

However, when the day of the event came around, her friend told her it was actually her surprise wedding day – and was furious when she arrived in white.

In her post, the woman said: “My best friend invited my husband and me to go on vacation with them at South Padre Island. She told me to bring the dress I wore to my last anniversary dinner for the special dinner/event she planned during the vacation.

“I also recently gave birth, and that dress is elegant black lace over a nude dress that is very classy but also form-fitting. When I tried it on when packing, I realized it wasn’t as flattering and my boobs had a hard So instead, I packed a cute semi-formal white lace dress instead.

The bride’s unwitting Maid of Honor arrived in a white dress.

“I arrived at the event and found out it was a surprise wedding on the beach where she only invited like 20 guests. She hadn’t told me it was her wedding because of an inside joke, where I kept telling her and her partner to get married and said they’d just elope and next thing we know they are married.”

The woman said she was “horrified” when she realized the mistake she had made, and things went from bad to worse when she was then told she was supposed to act as the maid of honor at the ceremony.

She tried to tell her friend to get someone else to fill the role but she refused – and instead accused her of “ruining” the wedding.

The woman added: “She was horrified, and so was I. I didn’t bring any other dress, plus there was no time to change/buy a new dress. Also, surprise! I’m the maid of honor. I offered to either not be the maid of honor, or leave the wedding, but she rathered me not.

“Later she blamed me for ruining her wedding because I didn’t follow her instructions to wear a specific dress and didn’t tell her about changing my mind. I said I’m sorry her wedding was ruined but it wasn’t my fault and she should have told me it was her wedding, and at the time of packing, I didn’t find it appropriate to get her approval on my outfit.”

Commenters on the Reddit post admitted they were initially planning to tell the poster she was in the wrong, but after discovering that she didn’t even know there’d be a wedding.

One person said: “You didn’t know. It was close to the same style, I don’t see how you could have known not to wear white simply because someone asked you to wear a dress they liked on you before.”

While another added: “You aren’t a mind reader so how could you know it was going to be a wedding. An apology would be nice. Just to repair the friendship.”
