Being told the wrong dress code for an event on purpose by a malicious person is a Hollywood film trope that never actually becomes reality… until it does.
For one woman, who has taken to Reddit to air her frustration, this became her real life after her aunty tried to sabotage her cousin’s wedding.
And it worked. Because now, the bride and groom are furious.
You see, this anonymous woman has explained that she recently turned up to her cousin’s wedding wearing shorts and a hoodie, only to discover that she had been given the entirely wrong dress code. Deliberately.

“In the months leading up to the wedding, my aunt (cousin’s mother) griped about how unconventional the wedding was going to be. She was happy for the couple of course but she didn’t like that the wedding wasn’t going to be in a church or banquet hall,” she shared.
“I thought it sounded cool and unique but my aunt hated the idea of it,” she continued. “She didn’t tell the couple though. Just complained about it to us behind their backs.”
The woman and her husband travelled nearly 1000 kilometres to attend the wedding. The day prior to her cousin’s big day, the immediate family members were told by the aunty: “The dress code for wedding is casual.”
“Not gonna lie, many of us were stoked. I hate dressing up so I was all over the idea of a casual backyard BBQ wedding.
“My husband and I had already packed nice clothes so we wore them to the ceremony.
“A few of my family members showed up to the ceremony in t-shirts and baseball caps. Immediately after, we changed into comfortable clothes for the reception. I wore a hoodie, Daisy Duke shorts and cute sandals.”
