She Left Her Bestie out Of the Bridal Party, but Was Shocked by Her Scene-Stealing Look – Was Her Outrage Warranted??

A woman shared a deep bond with her elder sister, Anne, who was soon to become married. Alongside their sisterly relationship, the sisters had also been close friends with a woman named Ruby. However, tension would soon arise between Anne and Ruby, and it unfortunately coincided with Anne’s wedding.

Ruby always stuck out from the crowd due to her eclectic fashion sense. “She’s that one person who would wear those runway outfits that you think no one would actually wear”, the woman mused.

Before the pandemic, Anne, brimming with joy, announced her engagement. The woman and Ruby were delighted, but as preparations ensued, tensions arose when the woman was chosen as Anne’s maid of honor over Ruby.

This decision was particularly shocking because Ruby wasn’t even chosen as a bridesmaid. “I was shocked – they’ve always sworn to be a big part of each other’s weddings,” the woman explained.

Queries about Ruby’s exclusion from the wedding party led to evasive answers from Anne, who merely claimed that Ruby had been indifferent to her involvement. However, both the woman and her mother knew this wasn’t the case, and attempted to pry further into Anne’s decision. However, Anne kept deflecting their questions.

The wedding day soon arrived, but despite the beauty of the occasion, Anne’s demeanor was visibly disturbed. At the core of her distress was Ruby’s outfit. “She was SEETHING the whole time because of Ruby’s dress”, the woman remembered.

In comparison to her usual attire, Ruby’s attire was not particularly flamboyant, yet it managed to overshadow Anne’s chosen wedding dress, which was relatively simple. However, the woman expressed that she did not believe Ruby did this out of malice: “It wasn’t at all outrageous by Ruby’s standards so I don’t believe that she intentionally tried to outshine my sister”.

After the wedding, Anne’s resentment spiraled. This led to a bitter confrontation with the younger sister, along with rude messages sent to Ruby. 

She Should Have Known

In an attempt to defend Ruby, the woman accidentally upset her sister even further. “I just said that she’s been friends with Ruby most of her life and she knows what she dresses like, so she should have expected her dress to be impressive”, she recounted.

The repercussions echoed beyond the trio. Anne expressed her anger to her father, who sided with her. Her mother, however, urged Anne to let it go, agreeing with the woman that Ruby didn’t intentionally try to outshine her. 

She Did Nothing Wrong

Whilst the woman realized that it probably wasn’t the best idea to tell her sister that she should have expected Ruby’s dress to outshine hers, she still felt that she and Ruby had done nothing wrong. Ruby and Anne were best friends, and if Anne had such a problem with the way Ruby would inevitably dress, she simply could have requested as a friend that she toned it down.  

Interfering or Supporting?

The woman headed online with her drama, asking an internet forum whether they too believed that Anne was overreacting. Many readers agreed that Anne had done this to herself. “If she wanted to control Ruby’s outfit, why NOT make her a bridesmaid?!”, one reader expressed.

Other comments pointed out how Anne had plenty of solutions that she didn’t use. “Your sister created her own drama here, not Ruby”, one commenter wrote. “There were SO many ways around what happened; talk to Ruby about what she wears to the wedding, make her a bridesmaid, or even just don’t invite her.”

One Hateful Comment

However, in typical internet fashion, there was one reader hating in the comment section. “You are a complete jerk, and so is your mom”, they criticized. “You guys need to butt out of Anne’s life. She obviously doesn’t want to be close to Ruby anymore otherwise she would have made her a bridesmaid. It was your responsibility to tell Ruby to tone it down.
