This month, a former bride chose to share her horror wedding story on Reddit. She was attempting to get some advice from the online community after her mother-in-law's claims post-wedding.

The woman alleges that her mother-in-law believes the bride was in the wrong. The mother is asking her for an apology because of the dress drama which occurred over a year ago.

GROOM'S MOTHER HAD HER OWN PLANS

Together with her fiancé, the woman took the mother in question shopping to find an appropriate dress for their upcoming wedding. After some time, they eventually settled on an outfit that matched the theme and suited everyone.

What the bride didn't know was that her new mother had other plans for the wedding day. The woman explained that her mother-in-law secretly brought another dress along.

THE ELABORATE OUTFIT CHANGE

The second dress was white and sparkly. The woman's brother-in-law spotted it hanging in a room and asked the bride what he should do. The dress was quickly taken to the car to stop the mother from her elaborate outfit change.

The mother of the groom was not happy and demanded her dress back. She went ahead with the outfit change during the reception and purportedly got attention for all the wrong reasons.

SHE WANTS AN APOLOGY

That's not the most shocking part of the story. The mother wants the bride to apologize for attempting to stop her outfit change. The mother-in-law believed the wedding day was also her big day and not only the bride's.

She was upset that the bride tried to "ruin" it for her. Now, the woman is asking netizens for their opinions on the matter, and users had a lot to say.

THE ONLINE REACTION

Many people were stunned by the story and took the side of the bride. One user stated: "I feel like this really doesn't need explaining! It's 100% your day, and she is obviously an attention seeker. You don't need to apologize at all."

Someone else expressed: "I'm utterly baffled by your MIL's actions" Other users suggested that the woman tell the mother her behavior actually put off wedding guests.

THE HUSBAND'S DUTY

Netizens also wanted to know why a bridesmaid didn't "accidentally" spill red wine over the mother's white dress. There was also a user who suggested that it was the husband's duty to address the issue.

They expressed: "Personally, I wouldn't want to be the one to confront her. This is your husband's responsibility to battle." Regardless of who speaks to the mother, netizens agreed that the dress drama needed to end.
