Bride faces backlash against request for “extreme” wedding attire: “It’s my day”
A gothic bride wanted to know if her dress code was too odd for the wedding.
A user on Reddit’s “Marriage shameThe forum shared screenshots of the bride’s unconventional request.
“Does anyone find it in bad taste to organize a wedding that asks guests to wear all gothic clothing on the invitation?” The bride asked. “My future husband and I are both great Goths (my dress is all black satin with a dark purple train). And we would really appreciate the guests’ acceptance of the theme. Is it too much to ask? They could just jump into a hot topic and grab a pretty outfit on the cheap. Open to all suggestions (except those that say goth is bad haha). ”
When one user said she couldn’t dictate what guests wear due to people’s budgets and their willingness to comply, the bride’s response was succinct.
“But it’s my day” she wrote.
Then another person suggested encouraging guests to dress Gothic rather than making it a requirement.
“The gothic or alternative outfit is not something that I personally consider strange, but I do know that it can be considered quite ‘extreme’ by a lot of people. ” user wrote.
The Gothic bride’s response was consistent with her previous ones.
“Uh, I feel like no one is considering this for me wearing normal clothes asks me to wear a suit ”, she answered. “I show up at everyone’s wedding in a suit so now they better show up at mine in a, a gothic.”
Reddit users weren’t very sensitive to the expectations of the gothic bride.
“Petition to ban the phrase ‘but it’s my day ‘ vocabulary of empowered brides. Who is with me?” a user wrote.
“This is hot garbage. As a gothic woman, I would actually like never require guests to wear anything? Dress up your party and that’s it. Don’t ask guests to dress in a specific way. Garbage. Garbage,” another said.
“I have a black dress that I can wear but I never dress Gothic. Never,” someone added.
The user who shared the gothic bride screenshot shared his answer to the Reddit comment as well.
“My post was featured in a Reddit board dedicated to the shame of marriage with over 100 comments telling me I’m a big jerk,” the bride wrote. “Ouch. All I can say is that my goth wedding will continue despite this hatred. In fact, it will be After goth than I even expected, because I’m upset and sad about it all. I will have a permanent scowl in all of my wedding photos because of this and luckily for me it will be themed. Also for people who say I’m not “gothic” enough – I went so far as to put a living spider in every invitation (the envelopes were bubble-wrapped for anyone who was going to invoke animal cruelty).
