Who is Alena Yildiz? Model uninvited from wedding for looking 'too good' as bridesmaid
Alena was further puzzled as none of the other bridesmaids who would also be wearing a similar dress were uninvited
A wedding day is a very special and important day for the couple getting married, so it comes as no surprise that most couples prefer keeping the spotlight on themselves. Same was the case with a bride who uninvited her close friend/ bridesmaid from her wedding after she looked "too good" in her bridesmaid's dress. Yes, you read that right. Alena Yildiz, a 21-year-old model from Germany took to her TikTok to reveal that she was uninvited from her close friend's wedding for looking "too good".
In a TikTok clip that has since gone viral, Alena wrote, "My close friend uninvited me to her wedding because she thought I looked too good in the dress SHE chose for me." She also posted several pictures of herself in the said bridesmaid dress, with the caption, "Still took some fire pics in it tho." The clip managed to garner a whopping 10 million views since it was first shared last week.
Who is Alena Yildiz?
Alena is a 21-year-old model, from Heidelberg, Germany. This stunning beauty is pretty popular on social media with a follower count of a whopping 165,000 on Instagram. The brunette beauty regularly posts pictures of herself on her social media pages promoting various brands. In September she announced that she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology.
Coming back to the bridesmaid dress fiasco, Alena revealed that her close friend who is the bride (her name hasn't been disclosed by the model for privacy reasons), picked out the bridesmaid dress herself for Alena and her other bridesmaids. Alena's dress is a blue-sequinned strapless dress with nude-lace detailing. In an interview with Insider, Alena revealed that the bridesmaids were made to pay for their own dresses even though the bride picked them out. The model's dress was designed by Albina Dyla and cost 1200 euros or $1360.
She also shared that when she sent the bride a video of herself wearing the dress, she immediately received a call from the bride. "She called me and told me about her insecurities with my dress; that it was too attention-grabbing. She was very angry about the whole situation and ended up uninviting me after the call. We got into a fight because it made no sense to me since she chose that dress herself.”
Alena was further puzzled as none of the other bridesmaids who would also be wearing a similar dress were uninvited. The model is currently not on speaking terms with her friend and missed the wedding which took place last week. "We talked about her wedding for years, and I was so happy for my friend to finally be with the love of her life and to celebrate with her," she added. Unfortunately, Alena's TikTok made things worse between the two friends. After the clip went viral, her friend and she reportedly argued even more and the model is now unsure if they two will ever be able to work past their differences. She however has some words of advice for women. "Another woman’s beauty doesn’t make your beauty fade, and I wish more people would understand that and be confident,” she said.
