The wedding is an important moment for all: the couple put all their energy to ensure that this day is perfect and unforgettable. Some people, however, tend to go too far and behave in brutal and inappropriate ways: One woman on Reddit described the behavior of a bride-to-be towards her.

The woman says:
I am very friends with the future bride, let’s call her Karen to keep it simple. She got engaged about a year and a half ago and immediately asked me to be a bridesmaid. Long story short, I got some bad news last year and had to undergo radiation therapy and chemotherapy. I don’t want to go into details because it’s still very traumatic for me. My hair has fallen out and I’m recovering, but my hair is still very short. Karen has been a great support in all of this. She is a nurse and it was nice to have someone with a medical background to talk to. About two weeks ago Karen called me to tell me that she was going to take me to celebrate my remission and the end of my treatment and that she had a special surprise for me. I agree and we meet. We go to a very pleasant spa and enjoy some skin treatments, massages, and general treatments. At the end of the day, she takes me to a hairdresser specializing in high-quality wigs. I’m a little taken aback because Karen knows that much of my work is about the psychological treatment of cancer patients and, for example, how to avoid the shame associated with hair loss.

The woman continues, “I politely accepted the date and even tried on a few wigs, although I was quite angry. I politely declined when she offered to pick one up and I tried to forget this whole thing. That’s when she calls me yesterday and tells me that I can’t go to the bridal party anymore. It completely amazes me because I’m her second lady. honor after her sister (who she spends little time with). I call around and although some of the other bridesmaids are reluctant to say anything to me, I understood that Karen was worried about what the photos look like with a bald-headed person. I was so upset that I tried to call her but she didn’t answer. I think I might not go to the wedding, but I want to make sure I don’t think about it too much. Her marriage is in two weeks. ”The woman then asked the netizens for advice: What would you have done in her place? Would you have been willing to forgive this complete lack of sensitivity and empathy?
