Not too happy her cousin was marrying a man she previously had a fling with, this woman decided to wear a red dress to the wedding.
However, her plan goes down the drain when the bride rounds up her bridesmaids for an epic surprise that had the internet virtually applauding.
A Relationship That Happened Eight Years Ago
Eight years ago, this woman had a fling with her cousin's soon-to-be husband.
Not being too thrilled about the turn of events, she decided to wear a red dress to the wedding.
People Shouldn't Wear Red To A Wedding
Traditionally speaking, wearing red to a wedding is a huge no-no.
It lets people know that a person has been with the groom. It's a shady move to make, especially at a family member's wedding.
The Bride Was "Gross" For Pursuing The Relationship
The cousin thought the bride was "gross" for dating a guy she previously had a fling with.
The thing is, the fling was a one-night stand, and the soon-to-be groom wasn't interested in pursuing a relationship.
The Cousins Were No Longer Friends
Sadly, the bride falling for the groom and agreeing to marry him put a huge dent in the cousins' relationship.
They used to be best friends. Now, the cousin was set on ruining the wedding.
She Was With The Groom First
Months leading up to the wedding, the cousin told the bride that she was going to wear a red dress to the wedding.
It was to let people know that the groom was with her first.
The Bride Wanted To Un-Invite Her Cousin
Obviously upset, the bride asked her mom if she could just not invite her cousin since she wanted to make a scene.
The answer: no, it would start a family war.
Time To Bring In The Calvery!
The bride understood, but that didn't mean she was going to allow her cousin to get away with wearing red.
So, she rounded up her bridesmaids, sisters, and closest friends, asking them to do something epic.
The Wedding Party & Friends Were Going To Wear Red
The bride asked all of the ladies to wear various shades of red!
That way, her cousin wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb, and no one would think twice about the color.
17 People Wore Red
Altogether, about 17 women and their significant others wore red. And needless to say, when the cousin saw what was happening, she was livid.
According to the bride, her cousin sulked the entire night and even left early!
The Bride's Aunt Was Not Happy
Amazingly, a few days after the wedding, the bride received an email from her aunt, calling her a few mean names and saying she already stole her cousin's man; she didn't need to embarrass her cousin further by having other people wear red.
The bride didn't think she was petty. That title went to her cousin.
The bride went to Reddit to ask if she stepped over a line because she didn't agree that she was petty.
As it turned out, the internet agreed with her!
The Bride Was Praised
One person wrote, "The hilarious irony at your aunt calling you petty on your wedding day..."
"Was it not your cousin being petty in the first place that caused the whole "incident?" You handled it perfectly. Congrats on your marriage!" Many others agreed, too -- the cousin and aunt are totally in the wrong.
