Man Intentionally Spills a Giant Glass of Red Wine on His “Venomous Demon” Mother at His Brother’s Wedding
While it is almost universally understood that in western weddings turning up in a white gown is the ultimate faux pas, sometimes it doesn’t stop the odd narcissistic family member from attempting to pull it off. And although many of us would love to do something awful to the white-wearing narc, they usually get away with it, smugly seated at the parent’s table in their pristinely inappropriate attire.
That is not the case in this account, however, as the brother of the groom dealt his own mother a card that she could never live down.
Writing to one of Reddit’s lesser-known forums, r/TrueOffMyChest, a user with the handle WeddingHeroGuy554 described the moment that he ruined a family wedding for his own mother, and doesn’t regret it one bit.
He explained that his brother had recently wed a wonderful woman that he had spent the last seven years with.
“Well, my mother being the venomous demon she is decided that one of the most important days in her oldest child’s life MUST be made about her in some way,” he wrote.
“She showed up in an incredibly frilly white bridal dress. Her dress was much more of a bridal dress than the bride’s that day as well. She was the talk of the whole event, for all the wrong reasons I mind you.”
He continued saying that his brother didn’t know if she would show up after a previous meltdown of hers and that both the bride and groom looked livid when they saw her sitting in the front row in her white gown.
“At the lunch afterwards, things only got worse and I knew my mother was going to ruin this day.”
Deciding to “take one for the team”, the young man asked for his serving of red wine to be filled to the brim: “I walked over to where my mother was sitting and “tripped,” dousing her perfect white dress.
“I nearly got on my knees grovelling to apologize and she missed the lunch and much of the first half of the reception driving back home (4 hour round trip) to change into the dress my brother had originally bought for her. Lucky for me, no one cared but my mother. The maid of honour even ended up slipping me a text right after the scene telling me that I deserve an Oscar for my performance.
“I didn’t plan on coming on the internet to brag about destroying a bridal dress and causing a scene at my brother’s wedding, but I just received a bottle of red wine from my SIL with a card saying “Enjoy the best bottle of wine I could find, for the best wedding gift you could have given us.”
He later added: “I don’t talk to my mum at all anyways, but I decided that despite the obvious fallout and tantrum it would be worth it to stain the dress the colour of her soul.”
“I won’t lie, before the wedding I had heard of stuff like this before,” he added. “So, when the time came it wasn’t a spontaneous original idea. My mind jumped from “Wow, wouldn’t it be great if someone actually did that here?” To, “Wow, wouldn’t it be great if I did that here?”
Turns out, he was right!
