Sometimes, things are better left off social media. Unfortunately, this groom-to-be did not know this, and ended up losing his fiancée over comments he posted on Reddit.
Taking to Reddit, an unnamed man asked fellow users if he is wrong for feeling his fiancée’s wedding dress was too extravagant and for suggesting cheaper alternatives. The couple, who were scheduled to marry in July, were both saving money for the wedding. However, the man is concerned about what the bride wants to spend the money on.
“We jointly put aside 10 k each for the wedding, everything is paid and we have 6 k left over which i think could go towards the honeymoon on top of the honeymoon fund we already had,” writes the groom. “We aren’t the extravagant type at all, then comes the time for Emma to pick her dress. I know everything is more expensive when it has the term wedding attached to it what i wasn’t expecting was an $950 dress plus $120 veil!”
The groom searched for dresses online and was able to find cheaper dupes, but his bride was not interested.
“I tried to show her some dresses i found on a recommended app called wish and others on website’s but she was having none of it…It turned nasty unfortunately because i said i refuse to drop such a large amount of money on a dress and she argued that she is using her own money for the dress. Which isn’t strictly true as we are about to marry and our finances will be joined.”
“I thought she would be ecstatic to learn there are identical dresses for a fraction of the cost but she was really angry and upset,” the groom continues. “Is there something I am seriously missing because after we argued about the dress Emma has been Extremely cold towards me. Then yestersay she said if i want her to cheap out on her wedding dress on her wedding day that she needs to really consider if we are a good match for marriage.”
Following their argument, Emma left the couples home to stay with her parents. She then found this Reddit thread and cancelled the wedding.
Hopefully this groom learns that its best not to air personal grievances online where anyone can read them.
