Weddings are meant to be a joyous celebration with family and friends.
But one man couldn’t seem to shake off the fact that his mum is a “venomous woman”.
Posting on Reddit, the guest revealed how he simply ruined his mum’s dress as she “deserved it”.
In a post, he explained that his brother had married his “wonderful” partner of seven years last month and was happy for them.
He revealed how somehow his mum made the day about her after she showed up in a frilly white bridal dress.
And she was “the talk of the whole event”, which he wasn’t happy with.
He wrote: “My mother being the venomous demon she is, decided that one of the most important days in her oldest child’s life must be made about her in some way.
“She showed up in an incredibly frilly white bridal dress. Her dress was much more of a bridal dress than the brides that day as well.
“She was the talk of the whole event, for all the wrong reasons I mind you.”
Understandably the bride was “livid” and the brother said that after lunch things only got worse leaving him to take matters into his own hands.
He added: “I decided to take one for the team.
“We were served glasses of red wine at lunch, and I asked for mine to be filled to the brim. I walked over to where my mother was sitting and ‘tripped’, dousing her perfect white dress.
“I nearly got on my knees grovelling to apologise and she missed the lunch and much of the first half of the reception driving back home (4 hour round trip) to change into the dress my brother had originally bought for her.
“Lucky for me, no one cared but my mother. The maid of honour even ended up slipping me a text right after the scene telling me that I deserve an Oscar for my performance.”

The man later received a gift from his sister-in-law with a card which read: “Enjoy the best bottle of wine I could find, for the best wedding gift you could have given us.”
Reddit users were quick to applaud his actions, calling him a hero.
One said: “Bless this person. Sometimes doing mischief is doing good.”
Another added: “Doing God’s work. Good on him!”
