Apparently, the bride named her identical twin sister to be her maid of honor last minute and that idea didn't sit too well with the groom.
Weddings bring out the best or the worst in people, and it seems like there's just no in-between. A groom-to-be recently took to Reddit to share with the world the ridiculous dilemma he was in. He has been dating his bride-to-be for over five years and is due to get married in a few weeks. It turns out that the bride named her identical twin sister to be her maid-of-honor last minute and he didn't quite approve of it. He wrote: Originally she wasn't going to be in the bridesmaid party at all due to a complicated pregnancy but she ended up with a c section and she and baby are doing well now.
But that was not the problem. The real issue lay in the fact that the bride-to-be chose white dresses for all the bridesmaids, including her twin sister. He continued: Now in what I consider to be a horrific decision, she has chosen long white dresses for the bridesmaids including her sister. So not only will they all be in white I am worried as my wife and her twin are identical people will be confused all day who the bride is! we have over 400 guests and a lot of people will be thinking that mia is the bride.
However, the bride seemed unbothered by it and did not want to change the color of the dress. Thus, the groom issued her an ultimatum: either her sister steps down as the maid-of-honor and replace her with his sister, or change the color of the dress. However, his ultimatum backfired. He wrote: I asked why she wouldn't consider my sister and she said seeing as my sister lived across the country and they had only met a handful of times she wasn't comfortable with it. I said she needed to come up with an alternative because I'm just not comfortable with the entire thing.
For reasons best known to him, he believed that the white dresses would lead to a confusing mess. He noted: The bridesmaids being in white makes me feel like its some crazy multi wife wedding and I'm marrying them all, including her twin. I put my foot down and refused to do it all her way but it's an unstoppable force against an unmoving object. Finally, [sister] called me up to ask me to drop it and said I was stressing [bride] out and upsetting her. If the groom was expecting some sympathy, he was sorely mistaken. The community unanimously declared him to be in the wrong.
One person wrote: The "replace with my sister" part is suss as fuck. If he had suggested a different friend or someone close to his fiancee, I'd think he's just a generic asshole who is WAY too invested in the optics of his wedding. But pushing for his sister knowing they're not close at all makes him sound conniving and manipulative.This is not about the dress. This is about his relationship with his sister and prioritizing it over his soon to be wife. Another added: YTA. I’m a twin and just got married last summer. My twin sister was my MOH. We had been through a bumpy patch in our relationship leading up to the wedding but I would have never chosen anyone but her to ever be my MOH. The bond between twins is the closest bond I’ve ever felt to anyone and I can’t imagine having my husband ever not be supportive of that.
