A woman had been excitedly anticipating her wedding with her future wife, Emma, which was due to take place in six months. Most arrangements were already in place, but a significant issue had arisen – Emma’s choice of a wedding dress.
Wedding Planning on Track
The couple had diligently planned their wedding, including booking a venue and saving for the occasion. Both had set aside $10,000 each for the wedding and they had almost completed all necessary preparations, leaving them with a surplus of $6,000.
The woman was excited about the prospect of the significant leftover funds. The couple had already put together a small fund for their honeymoon, but the additional $6,000 would mean they could treat themselves and do something really special.
Emma’s Dream Dress
As part of her wedding preparations, Emma had been researching wedding dresses and maintained a scrapbook filled with her dress preferences. However, when she revealed her dream dress to her partner, it came with a hefty price tag – $950, plus an additional $120 for a veil.
A Thrifty Perspective
The woman expressed concern over the steep price of the dress. “We aren’t the extravagant type at all – I’m using my dad’s old tux he used for his wedding”, she explained. “I had a quick search around for dresses online and there were so many just like the one Emma wants for like $50 to $100.”
The woman showed Emma some of these budget online options. However, Emma was insistent on having the specially fitted dress, making the online options far less appealing.
“Things turned nasty because I refused to drop such a large amount of money on a dress”, the woman explained. “She argued that she would just use her own money for the dress, but I pointed out that this wasn’t strictly true, as we were about to marry and our finances would be joined.”
Family Gets Involved
To complicate matters further, Emma’s mother weighed in and offered to pay for the dress, even though financial constraints were not an issue. The woman was bewildered by Emma’s refusal to consider the identical, more affordable dresses she had found online.
An Unresolved Clash
The clash over the wedding dress escalated, with Emma growing increasingly cold toward the woman. In a surprising turn of events, Emma questioned their compatibility for marriage considering that she was so willing to cheap out over her dream wedding dress.
The woman couldn’t believe that Emma would suggest this. “I’m blown away, I told her she’s like a toddler throwing a tantrum over a sparkly toy she can’t have”, she recounted. “That was a mistake as she left to stay with her parents, who called me to say I was acting completely out of order.”
Reflecting on Her Actions
The woman felt conflicted when reflecting on her decision. On one side, she had never anticipated Emma to become so caught up with such an exuberant dress and felt that it was an unfair financial decision considering their soon-to-be joint finances. However, she had clearly upset the love of her life, so she began to realize that she may have overreacted.
An Online Jury
The woman headed online with her conundrum, posting on a popular social network. Unfortunately, her post was met with beratement. “You’ve acted terribly”, accused one reader. “Her parents even offered to pay for the dress, because they wanted their daughter to have her day her way, and clearly money is of no concern. That should have been the end of it.”
Another reader pointed out that Emma’s money is her own. “Just because you are getting married doesn’t mean you get to dictate how she spends the money she earns. Also, who happily spends almost $20,000 on a wedding but decides a fancy wedding dress is a step too far?”
A Controlling Attitude
“You are suggesting she get married in a $50-$100 dress, and then when her parents offered to pay for her dress, it’s not even about the money for you”, another reader criticized. “You literally want to control what she wears, an adult woman.”
She Was Exposed
Little did the woman know, that the situation would soon escalate even further, which would become clear in an update she posted in the comments section. “Emma found this post, it was a mistake to post here and I’m deeply sorry I shared our problems on social media”, she confessed.
