Brides should really try not to hurt others feelings.
I get that a wedding is a very special day for the bride and that they want to look perfect on that day. However, that doesn’t mean that they can hurt others in the process. The following bride, however, didn’t think about that and entirely ruined someone’s day.
The someone who got her day ruined and was left weight-conscious for at least ten years was Julie Warren. This 52-year-old mother revealed how one wedding totally changed her worldview.
Julie thought that the bride and she were good friends.
However, that couldn’t be far from the truth seeing how the bride treated her.
She ordered really fancy handmade invites, in the form of a scroll with dried roses, and they were given out personally. I did not get one.
Weeks passed and I wondered where mine was. It seemed obvious that I was not invited. Others were asking where mine was.
I tried to act normal but it was hurting me a lot, then I found the shop bought one in the pigeonhole.
So Julie bought a gorgeous velvet black dress for the black-tie event.
However, Julie didn’t even get seated with the rest of her colleagues when she arrived.
The table we were put on had the seats missing, so staff went to get two and you could see the table was not meant for that many.
As for us there was no room at all, plus we had no name tag on the table. I felt tears welling up, and to be honest I felt like a non-person.
She wasn’t even asked to join in on the pictures, but she wandered down there, so they included her.
Someone’s best day of their life was one of the worst for me.
When the wedding was finished, Julie asked to see the pictures of the special day. However, the bride always had an excuse even though others had seen the pictures and said that they were beautiful.
When I asked, I got various excuses: ‘I left it at home,’ her mother had it, then her nan, then it was in the car her husband was using, and others — although I was being told others had seen it!
I was not in the main family and friends one and not in the ones that I posed in. There was a gap in the line-up.
This was the same for the others, I had been airbrushed out, my husband was in them, though, looking handsome in a tuxedo, so he appeared to be single.
“I headed for the bathroom, locked myself in and cried.”
It was the end of the school day, so I went out by the back way and out of the school gate and kept the tears in until I got home as I did not want my students to see me.
I was thinking, ‘I must be worse than I think I am to be airbrushed out.’
People need to stop and think how their behavior affects others. Weddings can bring out the worse in some people and dropping people like me because of weight shows the shallowness of people.
A wedding is supposed to be a ceremony of love to share with your family and friends. I hope that any bride-to-be thinks of others they invite, and not all about their image and what they want.
