Everyone hopes their wedding will go off without a hitch (see what we did there?), but sometimes an awkward faux pas gets in the way. Take for instance, one bride, whose mother-in-law decided to dress in a bridal gown for her son’s wedding.
When Jimmy Fallon prompted viewers to share their experience with a #weddingfail, one Twitter user’s tale of a wedding blunder made internet waves.
Amy Pennza wrote, “My mother-in-law wore a wedding dress to my wedding. So, yeah, top that one, Twitter.” Yup — and she had a pic of the sticky situation to prove it.
After the tweet went viral, Amy went on to explain her mother-in-law’s approach, and says she has no hard feelings about the incident, calling it a “pretty funny memory.”
Amy clarified, “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.” She added how she grew up in poverty and detailed examples of her bargain-hunting ways.
Amy went on to say that her mother-in-law is “incredibly generous” and has “more than made up for it since.” Plus, she seems to be cool with the buzz surrounding the unforgettable wedding moment.
Amy added, “ When I told her about this getting a lot of attention, and said I worried it might hurt her feelings, she waved it off, saying, "Whatever makes me famous."
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."— Amy Pennza (@AmyPennza) June 20, 2019
