Spot the 'unacceptable' wedding guest dress
Bridesmaids, groomsmen, immediate family and your future husband or wife; this is a list of people you can legitimately tell what to wear on your wedding day without going from bridezilla to b*tch. So imagine Liz Krueger’s shock when at a friend’s wedding, her wedding guest outfit caused more drama than the bride and groom’s big day.
In an Instagram post, Liz described how her nude and coral minidress made other guests to be rude to her, slap her on the bum and even spill a beer down her arm. The reason? They just didn’t like the dress. Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t slap someone on the bum or spill a drink on them every time I don’t like their outfit – that’s not nice or normal.
If only I knew that choosing this dress for a wedding on a 90 degree day meant so many women would be outrightly rude to me, and even come up behind me slap my ass as I'm standing alone. As quote " it was a dare from her friends, bc I was a target." And then proceed to spill a full beer down my arm Just one of maaaaany acts of kindness of the night! Yup. That happened. Good thing for thick skin, being able to laugh at things and not take it personally, and good friends/hubby by my side #adultsarebullystoo Regardless, we had one heck of s fun night and no "grown" women's comments/glares could bring me down as a wedding guest:)
The fitness instructor is actually a fashion badass, posting her #OOTDs all over Instagram with the caption ‘Whatever the occasion I like to have fun with it. Never a dull moment in my closet’. Why should she go all floor-length and pastel if she wants to wear something tight and bright? And did we mention it was 32 degrees celcius?! As long as you’re not wearing a bridal outfit, I think strict dress codes for weddings are kind of outdated.
So how do you deal when your dress is the victim of a hate campaign at a wedding?
1. Totally ignore them and be the bigger person
2. Customise dress and make it even more ridiculous
3. Make sure you’re at the front of every wedding picture
4. Fashion a shawl or cape out of napkins
5. Instagram your outfit and rack up those likes
6. Pretend you’re a bridesmaid – then everyone will accept it as the bride’s decision
Or, you could start a kindness movement on Instagram like Liz.
I'm starting my own kindness movement #KruegerKindness! Whether it's just a party of 1 (me), or others want to join me! I'm going to actively make it a priority to do good things for other women, every single day from here on out. I'm hoping to inspire others to do the same, just as I have with fitness journey. Anything as simple as a complimenting a women daily, buying them a coffee/lunch, taking the time to speak to someone who's in a hard place, volunteering with girls who have been bullied, getting to know women deeper than surface level and making a point myself to not judge a book by its cover on a daily basis. A movement for women, by women, and it's starting with me! If you want to join me in this movement, share your stories on social media with #KruegerKindness and let's kill all the mean girls with kindness. We live in a world that needs more women willing to put themselves out there for a good cause!!! Who's with me!? #kruegerkindess #killemwithkindness #nomeangirls #nobullying #womankind #liftup #empower #rolemodels #kindessallaround #makeadifference #bekind #supporteachother #respect #complimeny #listen #care #share #girlpower #strength #haveavoice #beheard #cometogether
