Maid of Honor Gets Yelled at for Making Gesture at Groom During Wedding Ceremony

Some people are just too hard to please. Even if you go overboard and give them your all, they will still find fault in what you do. They will forget all the kind things you have done for them and dwell on one minor fault that does not really matter.

That is what happened to OP, who was a maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding.

Stepping up for the Bride

The bride fell out with her best friend, who was supposed to be her maid of honor, just a few months before the wedding. OP says they fell out due to some “drama.” After this incident, the bride asked OP to be her maid of honor, which OP happily accepted.

OP went above and beyond in stepping up for the bride during the stressful wedding preparation period. She says she was there for the bride, was a good friend, and tried her best to take whatever stress the bride had on her shoulders.

She bought the bride and groom numerous things, a nice wedding present, and took them out on coffee and meal dates, knowing how expensive a wedding can be.

OP adds that she has taken time off work and missed her other engagements to be there for the bride.

The Day of the Wedding

The wedding day came, and OP was still up and down, finishing the DIY crafts she was doing for the wedding. She says she took numerous trips to and from the venue, all in full glam, to ensure everything was in perfect order. She says she was happy to do all this because the bride was her friend and wanted her to relax on her wedding day.

She, however, admits that the duties were quite heavy as it was only her and another bridesmaid doing everything.

You Are Not  Enough

So, here is where the drama came in. The bride told OP that if the groom turned around before she(the bride) was ready, she would leave the ceremony, and they would have to do it again. OP says this stressed her as she wanted to ensure everything ran smoothly.

When OP walked down the aisle, she stood far to the groom’s side. Being rather short, as she states, she did not see that the bride was already walking down the aisle.

When OP moved closer to the groom, she saw the bride make a gesture for OP to inform the groom to turn around. At this point, OP told him, and he did turn around.

Apology

OP apologized to the groom after the ceremony for the late signal and the confusion, and he said everything was fine, and they continued having a great night. OP states that everything else she organized went well.

The Fight

Fast forward to the morning after the ceremony, the bride went off on OP, telling her that she ruined the moment and it was “really{expletive}.” She yelled at her in front of people, reminding OP that she ruined her wedding day and insisted that OP messed up because everyone saw her make the gesture. She kept yelling and yelling even when OP was profusely apologizing while crying. She could only say, “I don’t even care that you’re crying because it was my moment.”

You Didn’t Apologize

The bride then added that the fact that OP did not apologize after the ceremony was another mistake. OP says she did not do it immediately after the ceremony because the bride was taking photos. She added that she didn’t think it was good timing as the bride had just been married.

OP decided to let her be as she was getting ready to leave for her honeymoon, and she was not replying to her texts. She says she knows she messed up, but she is hurt by how the bride communicated her frustration.

Was the bride’s reaction warranted, or was it too much?

The Masses Weigh In

One comment that caught many people’s attention on the post said, “I think you should accept that you were NEVER going to make that bride happy. No one could. After all, you did for her, her only response was to find a tiny moment to be angry about and blame you for. The ingratitude is stunning. Don’t text or call her. Let her become the ex-friend she was always going to become. Ask her other bridesmaids.”

Another user added, “No, her behavior is not okay. She’s treating you like a hired servant, not like a friend. She does not deserve your apologies. She is responsible for her behavior, which frankly is appalling.”

Manipulative Narcissist

“That bride was a manipulative narcissist if I’ve ever heard of one. Not surprised there was so much drama with other bridesmaids,” said another commenter.

But another question sparked people’s interest in the comment section. Was it OP’s duty to tell the groom when to turn? One commenter said, “The best man should tell him when to turn, not you.”
