Bride Trolls Mother-in-law for Wearing White to Wedding, Asks AITA

A bride was forced to wear a pink wedding dress on her big day because of her insecure mother-in-law, but she made the best out of a rather unpleasant situation and turned the tables.

Taking to Reddit’s AITA platform, one bride said her MIL decided to wear white at her wedding because she was obsessed with copying her in every single matter.

“My husband is the only child of a divorced mom, who has heavily relied on him for emotional support, yardwork, chores, anything you would rely on a husband for. According to my husband she’s hated every girlfriend he ever had, and I am no exception. I am stealinggggg her babbbyyyyyy,” she said in her post.

“I have always been polite to her and ignored her passive aggressive jibes. This woman has bought the perfume I wear after asking me what it was, bought the same car in the same color as me 1 month after I got mine, insisted we spend Valentine’s Day with her, asked my husband why he doesn’t take her on vacations, you name it.”

She tolerated her MIL’s childish behavior until she decided to pick white for his son’s wedding to upstage his bride.

“I made the mistake of allowing her to come bridal gown shopping with me and my mom. There, she found a white wedding dress and insisted it was a perfect Mother of the Groom dress,” the OP wrote.

“I was horrified, my mother was horrified, the sales lady was horrified. We tried to convince her it was not appropriate and asked her to respect my wishes. No dice. She said ‘you are being a bridezilla and forgetting it’s my special day too.’ I went home and told my fiancé (now husband) and he tried to reason with her and she would not have it.”

According to the bride, she decided to make the best out of the bad situation and changed the color palette.

“So, I decided we were changing things up. I picked a blush pink wedding gown without telling her, had my bridesmaids pick white dresses, and had my mom pick a white dress. We didn’t tell her any of this. She showed up the day of the wedding and had a shocked Pikachu face and was beet red.”

OP said it was a beautiful wedding, as it was supposed to be, and she didn’t let her MIL ruin her big day.

“Honestly, the wedding was beautiful. It looked really stunning to have a white bridal party with white and pink florals and me in a pink dress. She had a scowl on her face the whole time.”

“The day after the wedding she called my husband and lectured him about how mean we were to her and we didn’t let her feel special and we took away her shine,” OP said.

“Everyone I know is on my side, including my FIL (MILs) ex, but my husband’s aunt said we bullied his mom by doing this. Did we? AITA?”

The comment section was flooded with appreciative remarks for the bride, and everyone sided with her saying the MIL was TA in this case.

“NTA. Not at all. Never. In fact, you can explain to her slowly and patiently that she was RIGHT about her dress. It was PERFECT and you see that now. She inspired you to ensure she fit in with the bridal party and didn’t everyone look FABULOUS? She really helped set you out from the crowd which was a LOVELY thing to do to a bride. You included her because she is SO important, just like your mother,” one commented.

“LOL she wanted to outshine you at your own wedding and wear white like some sort of second-tier bride and now she’s upset that you took that opportunity away from her. You are NTA and she needs to find some hobbies and a therapist,” a second wrote.

“YOU ARE A GENIUS. (NTA)” a third said.

“This!!! What better way to deal with her childish display than making it part of the dress code! I salute you madam, check mate! NTA,” another wrote.
