There’s an upside and a downside to being asked to be a bridesmaid. The upside is that someone bothered to ask you, so you’re not a social outcast (Yay! Good for you!). But the downside is that only one gal gets to shine at the wedding, and that’s the bride. So, no matter how good of a friend you think she is, she’ll never let you wear something that makes you look better than she does. But Tammi Sauer never intended to set her bridesmaids up when she picked their dresses. But while the other bridesmaids might be a little ticked off, one of them decided to turn a horrific design pattern into a hilarious photo op.
Tammi Sauer has every reason to smile because she has the kind of life most of us would like to have.
She’s a children’s book author from Edmond, Oklahoma. She’s been married for 22 years to Ron, who was her prom date. And she’s also a mother. It seems like all the pieces in her life came together perfectly.
Sauer and her husband were celebrating yet another wedding anniversary, and she was a bit nostalgic.
There’s no better way to honor the vows one has made than by sharing the moment were it all started. So, she decided that she was going to post some of the best photos of her 1995 wedding on Facebook.
She posted several photos on social media, all of which brought back a lot of memories for everyone.
But when she looked back at the event, she recalled she wasn’t able to find the right bridesmaid dress at the store. So, she decided to create one using an amazing pattern. Fortunately, it all worked out, and everyone was pleased with the design, or so she thought.
It turns out that not everyone was happy with the idea of wearing a burgundy off-the-shoulder gown.
Moms, grandmothers, and seamstresses combined their effort into creating these dresses, and everyone looked so stylish. But one person felt that the dresses looked more like they were made with tablecloths.
It took Sauer posting the photos on social media for her to realize the dresses weren’t quite up to par.
Of course, she looked like a beautiful blushing bride with her impeccable white dress. But walking down memory lane made her realize she didn’t feel the same way about the bridesmaids’ dresses. So, she wrote on social media, “My apologies about those dresses, ladies.”
