Internet backs bride demanding 3-year-old niece not wear white dress

A bride-to-be has been backed after taking a tough stance with her 3-year-old niece by refusing to let her wear a white dress to her wedding.

Stories of so-called “bridesillas” making outlandish demands on wedding gifts and bridesmaids are nothing new on social media. Brides are often criticized for being inflexible, but it’s important to keep in mind the stress associated with planning their big day.

Like Hilda Burke, integrative psychotherapist and couples counselor. explained to Stylist: “Weddings are always a significant event in life or a rite of passage for many women and as such, they can become obsessed with creating the “perfect” event in anticipation that it will be “the best day “of their life. It can cause a lot of stress.”

Although some brides may push their demands to extremes, it is essential that guests try to go with the flow as much as possible and adhere to the bride’s wishes within reason. A rather obvious way to get things done is to stick with the age-old tradition that only the bride can wear white.

While this is one of the most highly rated and easiest rules to follow, some still break it, resulting in nasty squabbles involving guests and occasional breakups. The same could be on the horizon for a groomsman, whose brother is about to get married, after his wife decided to dress their 3-year-old daughter in a white dress for the wedding.

Write in a post which garnered 14,000 upvotes on Reddit, the groomsman admitted he was immediately uncomfortable with the idea.

“I wasn’t sure if it was appropriate because I thought it was mostly brides and bridesmaids who would wear white,” he said. However, he recalled that his wife “didn’t care” about children dressed in white and that his daughter would be the only child attending the wedding.

Wanting to be as “considerate as possible”, he decided to check with his brother if the bride would have a problem with it. The message came back loud and clear: “white is strictly reserved for the bride”.

Although he respected their wishes, his wife reacted angrily to the change and told her husband he should have ‘stand up’ for their daughter and they sure could have ‘just rocked’ with her wearing the dress and there would have been no problem.

According to the groomsman, his wife “now wants the bride and groom to pay for a new dress” and refuses to back down on the issue. Despite his reaction, the groom’s brother felt he had done “the right thing” by checking out – and many on social media were inclined to agree.

BabyCake2004 commented, “White is for the bride and everyone else in the wedding party, not the toddler who, let’s face it, will get a lot of attention no matter what she’s wearing.”

BasicDesignAdvice called the groomsman’s wife a “drama queen” because of her response. “She wants her daughter to wear white because the drama will keep her entertained.”

SG131 added, “I doubt the toddler cares so much about what he’s wearing.” Christinemfm_84 said, “Looks like she’s trying to start the drama on purpose or she’s hurt that your daughter wasn’t chosen as the florist. Either way, buy another dress for your daughter.”

SDpeasha, meanwhile, said that whatever the wife thinks, they should respect the wishes of the bride and groom. “While I think it’s stupid for the bride to worry about a 3 year old wearing white, it’s still their wedding and they can do whatever they want in terms of dress code,” they wrote. they concluded.

Newsweek contacted the original poster for comment.
