Bridesmaid’s controversial dress ignites family feud, but was it deliberate?
A user asked, “Am I wrong for not wearing my dress ‘properly’ at my sister’s wedding?”. Read the complete story to know who is wrong here.
The Original Poster (OP) is a 27-year-old female who spent the day celebrating her birthday early with one of her friends. This was because her sister was getting married on the weekend, on Saturday.
OP Got One Done Too
OP’s friend had wanted to get a tattoo, so OP went with her to a place that does walk-ins. One of the artists had the afternoon open, so OP got one done, and it covers most of her shoulder.
What Happened Next?
Saturday, the tattoo was still red and a bit puffy. OP got to the venue to get ready with everyone else.
OP’s sister didn’t say anything about the tattoo, so OP thought she was good to go. It’s a wide-strap dress, and the strap was irritating OP’s skin.
OP Didn’t Want To Stain Straps
OP didn’t want to risk staining the straps either, so she tried just to lower it, but that was a little awkward moving her arm, so OP wound up just taking her arm out of the strap altogether.
What Does OP Say
OP says, “I tried tucking the strap into the dress, but that wasn’t working well, so I just let it hang on the side. No one said anything before or during the ceremony.”
What Did The Sister Do?
When it was time for pictures, OP’s sister just gave her a look and asked if OP was being serious about the dress and to wear it the right way.
OP explained she couldn’t because of the tattoo, and OP’s sister told her that that wasn’t her problem because OP picked a terrible time to get a new tattoo.
OP Did Put It Up
OP did put it right for pictures, but it was uncomfortable as hell, and OP pulled her arm back out afterward. OP didn’t get to talk to her sister much during the reception, but she did throw a few dirty looks OP’s ways.
Besides that, a few other bridesmaids and their aunt told OP that OP needed to wear the dress appropriately for a few hours.
What Happened At The End?
This morning OP texted her sister to have fun on her honeymoon and never heard anything back, which is unusual for her. So OP texted again, joking if she was already having too much fun to talk. She did respond but only to tell OP she was still a bit mad that OP refused to wear the dress right and walked around the whole wedding and reception looking trashy at a special family event in a nice place.
OP asks if she is a jerk for not wearing the dress properly.
What do you think? Here is what others have to say:
You Didn’t Think At All
“You are a jerk. I’m in the “your body, your choice” camp, but you chose to get a new large tattoo days before her wedding. That was so poorly thought out, and I’m not surprised she was a little annoyed.”
You Had Options
“OP could’ve also covered the tattoo for the day so the strap didn’t rub or get stained – in the U.K., we call it “second skin,” and it’s a clear film that goes over fresh tattoos to keep it clean. I know it’s also available in the US, so I feel OP could’ve used it. I’m not a fan of it, but I would have worn it in this situation. Even if the tattooist didn’t have it (and I feel like some dude with walk-in space on a random Thursday to do a massive shoulder piece might not be the most technically advanced), she could’ve bought it online to be delivered before the wedding. OP is a jerk”
Timing Was Stupid
“You’re wrong – it’s your right to get a tattoo, but the timing of this one is stupid. The fact you chose to go to an artist you don’t know anything about and get a large piece the day before a formal event kind of says a lot about you.”
You Knew About The Dress
“OP not only chose to get a large tattoo before the wedding but did it on a spot of her body she knew she would have a dress strap on! It’s not like they were given the bridesmaid’s dresses the wedding day. OP, you owe your sister one hell of an apology!”
