Bride's face says it all as groom ridiculed for wearing T-shirt and jeans on wedding day
TikTok users focused only on the groom's fashion faux pas instead of sending their best wishes to the newlyweds
A UK groom is being ridiculed mercilessly on TikTok after he shows up in a T-shirt and faded jeans while his blonde bride is seen wearing a fancy wedding dress. The clip that has racked up more than 1.7 million views as of Wednesday, February 9, on TikTok was shared by the bride's best friend Violet Price on Sunday, February 6.
Catherine Nicholson, 16, wedded in a modest ceremony at church in the north of England on Saturday, February 5. Nicholson's best friend Price, also 16, celebrated her best friend's wedding by posting the now-viral footage with the caption, "Well, she’s definitely fell in love this summer @catherinenicholson21". In the clip, Nicholson can be seen standing at the altar in a traditional white gown and glittering tiara. TikTok users instead of sending their best wishes to the newlyweds focused only on the groom's fashion faux pas.
The groom, who is not named sported dirty sneakers, washed-out jeans, and a black T-shirt emblazoned with the logo 'Palm Angels' to his own nuptials. It is worth noting that the groom's T-shirt is from designer Francesco Ragazzi’s hipster streetwear collection whose price ranges from $280 to $400 and they sell at upscale stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue.
However, TikTok fashion critics were not impressed by the groom's dressing and they quickly bashed Nicholson’s groom for dressing like a vagabond on his big day. One TikTok user commented under the video footage as, "Did he not know he was getting married?". "That is sad look how beautiful she looks he couldn’t even be bothered changing from the night before," wrote another outraged social media fashionista. Someone else wondered if the groom was "filling in for a mate." Another quipped, "When ur getting married at 4 but lads night down the pub is at 6."
"Man forgot he was getting married and was just like, 'this'll do," added another. Someone else chimed in, "I would've done a U-turn as soon as I [had] seen him." "Imagine putting all the effort into looking beautiful, and then your 'fiance' shows up like THAT?", the TikTok user continued. "This is a [red flag] about how much effort he's [going to] put in this relationship", observed someone. "This is disrepectful and she just settle for that...sad". One user put it more blatantly, "His outfit shows he ain't serious."
Despite the tsunami of negative remarks that flooded the comment section of the video, Violet Price stepped in to put the debate to rest as she wrote: "For god sake stop she’s married & very happy. She’s not bothered what way he dressed she’s married & that’s all that matters."
