Wedding planning can be a joyous and exciting time, filled with anticipation and dreams of the perfect day. However, conflicts and unexpected hurdles can arise, even among family members. In a recent incident, a Reddit user found herself in a distressing situation when her cousin seemingly stole her chosen wedding dress. Here’s the full story.
She Is Getting Married Soon
The Original Poster (OP) is a 27-year-old who is getting married soon. She announced the date of her upcoming wedding some months ago.
Her Cousin Announced Her Wedding Day, Too
The story begins when her cousin, aged 28, also announced they were unexpectedly getting married and set their wedding date exactly one week before OP’s wedding.
She Spent Months Finding the Perfect Wedding Dress
OP says she has spent the last few months trying on wedding gowns for the special day.
A Seemingly Innocent Request
Her mother had sent a video of one of OP’s chosen dresses to OP’s cousin’s mother after she requested to see some of the dresses OP had tried on.
Since OP wanted her family to feel involved, she didn’t give it much thought and allowed her mother to send it.
Things Turned Ugly
Things took a turn when, after a few weeks, the store where she had put down a deposit for the dress called OP.
They told OP that her cousin and her mother visited their shop with a video of OP wearing the outfit and requested to buy a similar item.
The Very Same Dress
Instead of the white dress OP was wearing, one of the store’s salespeople offered them the exact same outfit in cream color.
The Store Owner Felt Bad and Refunded
The store owner mentioned she felt sorry for what happened and that the salesperson hadn’t considered that many of the same guests at OP’s wedding would be attending her cousin’s wedding too.
The store owner provided a refund because she understood that two girls from the same family couldn’t wear the same dress.
She Felt Betrayed
Upon learning about the incident, OP felt a mix of disbelief, hurt, and betrayal. She sent her cousin a message right away and wanted to see the dress she had bought.
Her Cousin Avoided the Issue for Weeks
Her cousin avoided the conversation for weeks, creating stories about not finding a dress or having it altered.
Finally, she invited OP and her mother the evening before her wedding, asking for some help with the wedding.
Finally, the Dress Was Revealed
OP inquired about her dress once more. Finally giving in, she pulled it out, and it was the same dress as OP’s, but in a different color.
She Was Angry and Accused Her Cousin of Stealing
OP was deeply hurt and questioned why she would deliberately try to take her wedding dress when she knew quite well that everyone would see it on her because her wedding was before OP’s wedding.
She Went Behind Her Back
OP said that if she had spoken to her first, she might have agreed to let her have the dress, but instead, she went behind her back and lied about it.
Things Escalated Quickly
The confrontation between OP and her cousin escalated into a heated argument, after which OP to left the gathering.
She Is Thinking of Not Going to Her Cousin’s Wedding
Now, OP is contemplating not attending her cousin’s wedding at all, questioning whether her cousin’s actions warrant such animosity on the eve of her big day.
OP’s family, however, believes she overreacted and should have chosen to remain silent until after the cousin’s wedding.
They’re Trying to “Win” the Wedding Game
She took to Reddit to ask whether she was in the wrong, and hundreds of comments poured in supporting OP.
One Reddit user said that OP was not in the wrong and that her actions were totally reasonable.
A Redditor wrote, “She lied and avoided confrontation for weeks. Your reaction was valid in my eyes. Things could have been different if she had shown you the dress earlier.”
“She invalidated all your effort so close to your wedding. Your family is toxic.”
