Woman Wonders If She’s A Jerk For Being Upset Her Bride Friend Banned Coats From Her Wedding When The Weather Is -4C

If it’s cold outside, you put on a sweater, or a coat, or wrap your favorite extra-big sweater around you. It’s common sense. However, some people, who are about to get married, might focus a bit more on aesthetics and creating a certain image of themselves than the welfare of their nearest and dearest. Some even go as far as banning warm clothing entirely. In winter. In Northern England!

Redditor u/Due-Resolve4835, a bridesmaid, shared how her dear friend had decided to ban them all from wearing coats because it might “ruin the photos.” At sub-zero temperatures, mind you. When she brought up the issue, there was a spot of drama, which was why the woman turned to the AITA online community to get their take on the situation. Reddit was very supportive.

Some of the signs and symptoms of hypothermia include shivering, exhaustion, confusion, and memory loss. Drowsiness, slurred speech, and fumbling hands are also indications that you may need to seek medical help.

It is absolutely essential to get warm as soon as possible. Drink warm liquids, but avoid alcohol. Use dry blankets to warm the person up. Be sure to remove any wet clothing beforehand. And be sure to contact a doctor.

The vast majority of the AITA subreddit’s members thought that the OP did absolutely nothing wrong by bringing up the whole coat issue with the bride. It really is common sense. It’s cold in winter. You don’t want to ruin your health. And, frankly, you want to enjoy yourself since you’re invited and all. It’s a bit hard to do that when you’re so cold, you can’t feel the champagne glass in your hand.

The last thing you want to do is spend an entire day with blue lips and chattering teeth—anyone who sees you might think you’re a White Walker, and they’ll end up calling the rangers of the Night’s Watch to investigate.

Yes, it’s a celebration of love for the happy couple. And most guests are willing to sacrifice their time and money to share that special day with them. But hypothermia is where most people ought to draw the line.

There are many ways to solve a similar situation. If it’s important for the bride for everyone to look great in the wedding photos, everyone could agree to wear matching coats, scarves, and gloves. The wedding date isn’t exactly a secret: you can prepare for the seasonal cold in style well in advance.

Another potential solution would be to have a quick photoshoot before anyone really gets super cold, and then everyone could warm up inside. It might even be fun!

Something else to consider would be wearing very discreet space-age thermal clothing underneath all the fancy dresses during the (hopefully, very brief) photoshoot.

But at the end of the day, open and honest communication is what helps solve these types of problems. You shouldn’t be afraid to raise important issues—diplomatically of course—just because it’s someone’s wedding and everyone else is too scared to speak up.

If you’re a bridesmaid, it means that the happy couple trusts you and values your input. Though, sometimes, the stress of all the preparation can be so huge, the bride might snap even without wanting to.

The happy couple can check in with their closest family and friends to see if they’re being reasonable with their requests. If they’re open to feedback, then the wedding is bound to be a success.

When all is said and done, it’s the atmosphere of the wedding and the feel of the day that you’ll remember, not the minute details. Focus on what’s most important. And let everyone dress for the weather!

Here’s what some people had to say about the entire situation. Meanwhile, the author of the post shared some more details in the comments
