Imagine you’re getting married and someone decides to wear a similar dress to the one you’re wearing right now… you’re pretty much certain you’ll be the ultimate bridezilla

Getting married should be one of the most exciting days of your life.
Granted, it can come with its ups and downs, but usually the people around you will do their utmost to make it as smooth as possible for you.
But sadly, that’s not always the case, and one woman got so frustrated with her boyfriend’s fashion choice for the day that she thought it would ruin the whole day. So much so that she’s considering uninviting her from the celebrations.
Taking to Reddit to express her frustration, she explained that her 24-year-old college boyfriend, whom she calls “B,” was very excited about her outfit since it was her first non-family wedding.
She writes: ‘Now while we are both British, B is ethnically white while I am South Asian. She said she wanted to wear a saree to my wedding so I told her where she could get a nice one and she went shopping I told her that red is our bridal color so it should be avoided.
“Now she says she fell in love with a red and gold saree and bought it. I told her that this is the color of my wedding dress and that she needs to find another outfit. She said she’s sure it won’t matter on the day but how… it’s the equivalent of someone wearing a white dress to a western wedding.

“She refuses to compromise and change her outfit because she loves it so much and she will not have another occasion where it is appropriate for her to wear a saree.
“I don’t want anyone to wear red and gold on my wedding day. WIBTA, if that’s why I uninvited you?”
People were also quick to point out how horrified a western bride would be if someone wore a white wedding dress to her wedding.
One wrote: “She insists on wearing a wedding dress to your wedding. She can stay at home and wear it there.”
“You didn’t tell her red and she won’t respect it, so no more invitations. If she can’t show respect, she’s no longer welcome. It’s a common rule,” ranted another.
Others noted that she made the decision on purpose, rather than accidentally showing up in something similar.
They wrote: “The difference is to know that you do that instead of making a random fashion decision.

“Yes, if it were a floor-length white gown at a Western-style wedding, it would be the same, but she (the maybe-not-anymore-guest) doesn’t seem to get it.
“I think rather than strictly uninviting her, tell her for the 100th time that what she bought is a wedding dress and what you’re going to wear, so it’s inappropriate for her to wear it too, and warn her then if she comes in, she will win. Don’t get involved and go for it.
“It makes it more obvious to everyone that it’s their own fault, not yours, and not some sort of ‘bridezilla’ behavior, at least imo,” argued one.
