For many people, a wedding is a chance to get all glammed up and be looking your best – especially if you’re the bride or groom.
You’ll have picked a very special outfit for the big day, one that you hope your significant other will love as much as you do.
However, this sadly isn’t always the case and sometimes people may not appreciate your taste.
One bride-to-be has claimed her wedding is “ruined” after her future husband accidentally saw a snap of her wedding dress and branded it “horrible”.
The unnamed woman has been left “devastated” as a result of her partner’s comments and now doesn’t know what to do.

Turning to the internet for some much-needed advice, the bride explained her dilemma on Netmums, revealing there were only a few days to go before the ceremony and she didn’t have time to change her outfit.
Her post read: “My wedding is ruined!
“I’m getting married in a couple of days, it’s all planned and organised. We have been together forever but have waited and it was going to be a fab day for us all.
“Anyway, I had a picture of my wedding dress from Pinterest in my photos, for some reason my OH has set up the TV so that it streams pictures from our Amazon photos when it is going to sleep.
“Last night the screen went off and this stream of photos came up-including this wedding dress image and about 5 others that I had on my phone. He didn’t comment until mine came up and he said how horrible it was and he hoped I hadn’t picked anything like that-sob. It’s a colour (not white) so was always a risk but I feel (felt) amazing in it and now I know he hates it before I even arrive.
“I’m devastated, it’s too late to get anything else and I don’t have any more budget anyway. What do I do?”
She feels like the wedding is ‘ruined’ (
In the comments, people were quick to share messages of sympathy for the woman but encouraged her to still wear the dress that she felt amazing in.
One person said: “What’s more important to you? Getting married to this man, or whether or not he likes the dress you wear? If the former, then your wedding isn’t ruined. If the latter, then your wedding was going to be ruined regardless of what you were going to wear.
“This is one day, and a few hours in a dress, a dress which will look very different when you’re wearing it.
“The likelihood is that he’ll either not even realise that this is the dress he said he didn’t like, or that he’ll see it and immediately feel guilty about what he said, and be apologetic all night. And in five years’ time, this will be your main funny wedding story.”
Someone else said: “Ah bless you but I’m sure he won’t think the same when he sees you in it! And he will be mortified he said it. I’m sure he will think you look amazing and you can laugh about his silly comment afterward! Wear it and wear it proudly.”
A different user added: “Oh you poor thing!! BUT dresses always look different on, so you have to just laugh it off! Men! It’s just a good job they don’t wear the dress, imagine what they’d pick!!!”
