Bride calls off wedding because groom's best man's physical attributes would ruin photos
The unidentified woman complained on Facebook and Reddit that the best man was only "5ft 3" and would look "ridiculous" if he escorted her "beautiful" sister down the aisle
A bride-to-be reportedly called off her wedding after her fiancé wouldn't ditch his best man, who she thought was too short and had a unibrow and crooked teeth.
The unidentified woman complained that the best man was only "5ft 3" and would look "ridiculous" if he escorted her "beautiful" sister down the aisle.
"I'm getting married next Saturday," the bride revealed on Facebook. "All of my bridesmaids are gorgeous and honestly, I can't imagine having better-looking friends."
"My issue is my fiancé's best man. He's only 5ft 3' so he will look ridiculous escorting my sister down the aisle," she continued. "He is homely as well with a unibrow and crooked teeth. One of those really big smiles that shows his teeth and 10ft of gum too."
The post, which was later shared on Reddit, also saw the bride asking her beau if his best man could stand on the edge in photos so he could be cropped out.
"I asked my future husband if he could be at the end of the line of men in all pictures and during the ceremony," she wrote.
"That way he can be cropped out or avoided in photos. It would make him have to pick another best man. He won't do it because his friend spent £10k on his bachelor party weekend."
"I don't particularly care and if he decides that his gift depends on his placement at the wedding party I don't think he's a good friend anyway," she added.
The woman ultimately became so upset that she decided to call off the wedding. "I'm crying and so upset that my fiancé said he wouldn't move him... I'm so insanely upset and told him I'm calling off the wedding," she wrote.
"I just need some support from fellow women who know how stressful it is to pull off a beautiful and aesthetically pleasing wedding day." Reddit users immediately pounced on the bride, criticizing her for being ridiculous herself and that her groom had had a narrow escape.
"Let her call off the wedding. Someone who is that focused on looks isn't someone anyone needs in their life," one commented. "Husband should marry his best man. They have a healthier relationship," another wrote.
"This chick didn't realize until the week before the wedding who her husband chose as best man? Sure, Jan," read yet another comment.
However, some comments on Facebook appeared rather supportive. "Eww honestly, nothing worse than seeing a hobbit/troll in a wedding party," one wrote.
"He just needs to be in the back of the pictures or the back end" another commented. "Tell your husband to pick another best man or the weddings off. This is unacceptable, honestly," a third added.
