After getting uninvited to a friend’s wedding, this Redditor thought it was logical to cancel the gift she wanted to give the couple. But she didn’t expect that everyone would shun her because of it!
An Ex-best Friend, a Wedding, and More!
OP’s (Original Poster) so-called best friend got married the Saturday before this story was posted. She said she was even supposed to be the bride’s maid of honor.
However, she was removed from the wedding!
She shared that she was uninvited, and her position as the maid of honor was retracted because of a simple dispute.
OP mentioned they argued about her makeup, hairstyle, and OP’s supposed “disinterest” in the wedding.
My Decision Is Final!
Everything became finalized when the bride learned that OP had told her friends her side of the story.
And just like that, she was erased from her best friend’s big day!
OP was responsible for the wedding cake, as she offered it to the couple as a gift. However, since she was uninvited, she canceled the order.
She said she wanted to be “reimbursed for all of her investments in the wedding.”
Breaking the News or Not Really?
OP told her ex-best friend that she wasn’t bringing the cake to their wedding. However, she didn’t inform her that she had canceled the order.
Picking up the Non-existent Cake
Her ex-best friend assigned a new maid of honor, and she was responsible for the cake that OP supposedly ordered. However, when she got to the store, she learned that OP had canceled the order!
Everyone was frantic! The bride and the groom didn’t have a cake, and it was already the day of their ceremony!
So, they rushed to order another cake. However, OP said, “It apparently wasn’t as nice.”
Take the Blame
The bride was furious. It was also understandable that her husband would take her side.
However, even her sister, who attended the wedding, told her it was “unfair” of her to cancel the cake.
Other Ways to Go About It
OP’s sister is firm in the belief that she did something wrong. She said OP should have let the couple enjoy their special day and then just discussed getting refunded after.
The Couple’s Thoughts
The bride believed she was entitled to the cake because it was a gift. She even argued that gifts “cannot be returned.”
As for her husband, OP said, “The groom just agrees with literally anything his precious wife says.”
Was It a Selfish Move?
OP reiterated that she knew they would have trouble getting a replacement when she canceled the cake order. Even so, she did not tell them what she did!
Was she wrong to do so?
What the Community Thinks
For Redditors, OP didn’t do anything wrong.
One said, “You don’t disinvite someone from a wedding and still expect a gift. Not the a**hole.” Another commented, “And there is no way the bride would have settled up after the wedding. She would have stuck to the ‘this was your gift’ line.”
Ex-best Friend’s Entitlement
Other users couldn’t believe how entitled OP’s ex-best friend acted.
“OP proposed a cake and then decided not to give it after the bride broke up with her, despite the bride then demanding OP still give her the cake. There never was a cake, just the promise of one. This entitlement takes the cake,” wrote one Redditor.
Take It for Yourself!
People were on OP’s side and gave her some suggestions for petty revenge tactics.
One said, “I would have paid for the cake, taken it home, and taken pictures of myself eating it.” Another replied, “Ooh—all dressed up with a wedding cake on my coffee table and me sitting on the couch going at it with a fork. Awesome!” A user also explained, “If it was a gift, she hadn’t given it yet, so there was nothing to return. Not the a**hole.”
Could OP have handled things better? Do you think she was wrong to keep the bride in the dark?
