Father-in-law insults bride’s appearance at ‘surprise’ wedding, gets slammed online

A Reddit user was facing criticism last week after seeming to insult his daughter-in-law about how she looked at her “surprise” wedding. 

The angry father-in-law posted about the incident on Reddit’s “Am I the A–h—” forum.

The father of the groom explained that his wife unintentionally wore white to the event. In the United States, wedding guests typically tend to avoid wearing white as a means to not distract from the bride. 


According to the Redditor, his wife frequently wears white, so the newlyweds should have known to warn
