Would you back out of being a bridesmaid if you thought the dress was too ugly?
That’s the dilemma one bride is dealing with after her twin sister refused to wear the bridesmaid dress she had chosen and pulled out of her wedding.
But when the bride-to-be posted her predicament on Facebook, alongside a picture of the dress in question, she received an unexpected response.
Seeking support from fellow brides she wrote: “So I’m a little annoyed my twin sister has decided not to be in my wedding because she doesn’t like the outfits I picked for them to wear”.
“I think it’s going to be cute, but she has been very difficult.
“My aunt modelled it and didn’t pull the skirt right up lol, but this is the gist.”
The picture of the dress in question quickly sparked an online debate.
The dress, which consists of a basic white shoe-string singlet with a long pink tutu-style skirt, was described by one person as “something a six-year-old would wear”.
Others were quick to say they are siding with the twin bridesmaid on this one.
“I’m actually a twin and if my twin sister tried to make me wear that, I would hope to god I could talk her out of that and pick something not hideous and juvenile,” one person wrote.
“Just complete the look with a tiara and a wand. Maybe some dollar store fairy wings and fake pearls, go all out,” added another.
“Some child is very upset about her fairy costume her grandma sewed for her being stolen,” commented a third.
And while most sided with the bridesmaid, some agreed that despite the dress, it’s still the bride’s day.
“This isn’t cute but it is not anywhere near ugly enough to refuse to wear it as a bridesmaid in your sister’s wedding,” one person commented.
