Family members and friends are supposed to love and support each other unconditionally. Especially on special days like weddings. Sometimes, however, drama seems to get the better of everyone. That’s how long-lasting feuds start. Sometimes spanning a year or even longer.
Reddit user Yazdon posted an intriguing tale of two ruined weddings, which involves betrayal, plotting, conspiracies, pregnancy, and a grand dose of good humor. Sounds like the story from an A-list detective mystery novel. Only what happened is completely real, not just based on true facts. And it just goes to show that the old adage that ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ is still true to this very day.

Yazdon was at her cousin’s wedding last summer where he got married to a woman called ‘Emma’ (that’s not her real name). However, ‘tragedy’ struck when one of the bridesmaids, named ‘Sarah’, ruined the wedding by announcing her engagement at the party, right after the ceremony. Emma didn’t rage. She didn’t scream or pounce on Sarah. She waited. She bided her time.
Luckily for Emma, Sarah named her maid of honor for her own wedding, and a series of unfortunately hilarious events were set into motion. And when Emma got pregnant, she knew she had the perfect circumstances for revenge. What did Emma do? Well, she revealed that she’s 5 months pregnant at the wedding. Emma was then thrown out, but victory was hers. Touchdown, goal, home run, and other sportsball words don’t do Emma’s vengeance justice. Now, it wasn’t a nice thing to do, but revenge is never nice, is it?
Besides getting engaged and declaring you’re pregnant, what are other faux pas at weddings? Cosmopolitan suggests that you shouldn’t wear white clothes because that’s the bride’s color, and you should watch how much you drink, so you don’t embarrass yourself. Especially if you’re giving a speech. Even though we’re living in the age of mass communication, be sure to turn your phone off, so you won’t be tempted to scroll on social media during the ceremony. Letting your friends know you’re at a wedding can wait until, well, after the wedding.
Cosmopolitan also explains that no matter what you think of marriage as an institution, you shouldn’t express any negative views about weddings during the event. Nor should you complain about the food not meeting your very strict dietary guidelines, if you forgot to include that information in your RSVP. After all, it’s somebody’s special day, and nobody wants to hear any complaints. Otherwise, some revenge might be in order.
