Unfortunately, this apparently opened a floodgate because now … Then he sat there leering at me, oblivious to the stunned, embarrassed silence from everyone at the table. I’ve nicely asked him to confine it to the bedroom. Anyways, I wore a blue dress to the ceremony, and it turns out that the bride’s wedding colors were royal blue.
Her bridesmaids wore the color, the close family wore the color. Other than a wedding invitation, we never had any contact with them prior to the event since a summer BBQ where dress codes were not discussed.
At this point, I don’t want to fuel the fire or ever engage again, but I’m stumped—because she seems excited to have a dead horse to beat.
A: Good Lord, this woman is grimly determined to be personally victimized by the color blue.
It was really embarrassing, but it was her wedding day so I apologized, said that I had no idea and that the whole day was beautiful.
It seems that she casually told some of her friends not to wear blue, and I didn’t get the message.
She was apparently horrified that I had worn “her color.” Another woman also wore blue and got the same treatment.
She stomped off in a huff, and eventually her husband came over and said that she was really upset and that seeing my dress was detracting from her having fun. A friend loaned me a long black sweater and I put it on over the dress.
Later, the bride pointed me out (while using a microphone) and said “she’s not invited.” Later in the night, she came up to me AGAIN to tell me how this had shattered her day.
