KIRTLAND, Ohio– An Ohio woman took to Twitter on Wednesday to chronicle her so-called ‘wedding fail’. She shared the story of how her mother-in-law wore a full-length wedding gown to her wedding.
“My mother-in-law wore a wedding dress to my wedding. So, yeah, top that one, Twitter.”, Amy Pennza shared.
She went on to explain why her mother-in-law to be chose the full-length white gown.
“I didn’t know what my mother-in-law planned to wear. I didn’t think to ask.”
“Later, my sister (matron of honor) said she didn’t pull me aside and talk about it because she hoped I was too distracted to notice. My college roommate (bridesmaid) said the same thing.”
“But secretly, they both spent the reception looking at me, then each other, then MIL, then me, then the cop the venue made us hire—hoping I didn’t go for his taser.”
“I’m happy to report the wedding unfolded without bloodshed, or anyone being shoved into the champagne fountain.”
“Here’s the thing: My mother-in-law is extremely frugal. And I don’t mean she just enjoys a good bargain. To understand her, you have to know where she comes from.”
Pennza goes on in a lengthy Twitter thread to explain how her mother-in-law grew up in extreme poverty. She also explains that even after the dress fiasco, she’s still thankful for her mother-in-law.
“So, yeah, the wedding dress was a shock. But it gave me a pretty funny memory. No one who attended has ever forgotten it. And, you have to admit, weddings can be forgettable.”
Pennza also says that her mother-in-law has more than made up for wearing a wedding dress to her wedding.
“Sure, she wore a wedding dress to my wedding. But she has more than made up for it since. When I told her about this getting a lot of attention, and said I worried it might hurt her feelings, she waved it off. “Whatever makes me famous.””AlertMe
