A bride has led to a debate about her family member’s outfit choices and her reported response to those choices.

The unknown woman at the height of the alleged incident on Reddit, the popular “I Am the A-H—” in the forum, with the question of whether it was in the wrong for kicking the guy for wearing his military uniform.

“The son of one of my husband’s family and friends showed up to my wedding in his marine corps formal wear, complete with all his medals. Now, I have nothing against anyone in the army, but this was a black tie optional wedding and to be honest I felt very out of place and it seemed like he was just trying to show off. My wedding had over 300 guests and no one felt the need to wear something to distinguish them,” the bride claimed in her post.

But they said the man: “of course it was acting very well mannered and a complete gentleman,” adding that “there were even a couple of excited teen girls in my wedding who wanted to take a picture with him, which he graciously agreed.”

However, the Navy’s popularity proved too much for the bride and she asked him to leave for stealing her thunder.

“A lot of people were thanking him for his service, and to be honest, it just felt like the only reason he wore it was to be in the spotlight and make it about him, which I don’t think you are supposed to do on someone else’s wedding. If he wants to wear that to his own wedding then fine, but the whole point of having a dress code at a wedding is so that no one guest is going to stand out too much,” she wrote.

The bride said she felt bad for her decision, but claims that they “just don’t feel right” with him.

In the Reddit forum split on who in the wrong, with the conclusion that “everyone sucks” in the situation.

“This is a former Army Sergeant.

Him: Wearing formal military wear on formal civilian events is allowed according to the rules (Army is AR 670-1, no idea for marines), but you need a special kind of a–h— to contribute to a non-military wedding without the specific consent of the couple.

You: He was rude. No question, but kicking him out of the wedding was a bit much. It is your special day, but you must remember that you play two roles– both the host and the one celebrated,” a Redditor wrote.

“I’d like to add, sounds like a young Marine who’s(sic) friends recommended, he wears it because it is a chick magnet. Marine-Class, As are probably the most beautiful of all the branches. If he is young and right of the boat, that money is not flowing yet for him to rent a tuxedo. But he surely must have been checked with the couple for the first time”, another wrote. “As the bride, you did overreact.”

“It is a formal military wear, but as a vet I can tell you that anyone who tries in this situation is going to get the stink eye from someone whose(sic) ever served. This reeks of ‘thank me for my service”,” another soldier wrote.

“More than 300 people. Guy is in military formal wear and was very well mannered.

No matter you are an A. A dramatic, self-centered(sic),” wrote.
