3 Hair Accessories To Make Your Wedding Outfit Amazing!

Most women spend months preparing for their wedding day. It’s such a special occasion in a woman’s life, that it makes sense to spend a little extra time, and sometimes money, to make sure that everything is just perfect. The perfectionism and planning obviously doesn’t stop when it comes to prepping your wedding gown and as any patient groom will know, choosing an outfit can take weeks at a time!

So, if you’re going to spend all that time and money on selecting the perfect dress and having it tailored to your specific needs and wants, it’s important to remember that your accessories on the day are just as important. They can make or break your entire outfit as a matter of fact! So here are three hair accessories that you should definitely consider in your wedding outfit for when you tie the knot.

The Hair Comb

The humble hair comb has gone from being a styling tool in the past to becoming an actual hair accessory unto itself these days. And no, we’re not talking about a regular comb for straightening out your hair. There are a number of brands that offer beautifully stylized combs for you to wear in your hair as part of your outfit that will make you look like a style queen as well as a beautiful bride!

Tiara

While this is something we generally assume is reserved for royalty or beauty queens, tiaras have become quite stylish as wedding accessories in recent years. Most women treat their wedding day as a Disney cartoon and if you’re going to be the princess in your own dream come true, you might as well wear a tiara to boot!

Hair Pins

For the rest of us who don’t necessarily want the ‘Disney princess’ appeal, or are simply looking for a modest way to style their hair on their wedding day – the classic hairpin will do a great job! While they’ve always been popular for working women or women in the home, they’ve also been updated to appeal to brides and wedding fashion. So if you’re looking for something tasteful and reserved for your wedding outfit – the hairpin is for you!

After failing to develop a rapport with her future mother-in-law, one bride-to-be caught her doing something terrible just a few months before the big day…

What Was She Thinking?

Tracey shared a bizarre story on Reddit about the months building up to her destination wedding in Colombia. She was struggling to get on the same page as her future mother-in-law, Gina. Although she managed to rise above Gina’s criticisms, she was shocked when she caught her red-handed doing something with “disturbing” with her wedding dress…

Match Made In Heaven?

Every bride-to-be hopes to develope a happy, healthy relationship with their future mother-in-law and Tracey was no different. After saying “yes” to her fiance, who we shall call Rick, things were looking promising in the year building up to their wedding.

The Dress That Changed Everything

It’s amazing to think that a wedding dress could be at the center of such a crazy story, but this is what happened to Tracey. Naturally, the bride-to-be wanted the perfect wedding dress for her big day. So she ended up going big when she ordered a dress from Galia Lahiav, a prestigious couture atelier. Seeing that celebrities such as Beyonc√© have bought dresses here, it made sense that Tracey’s dress came to a staggering $11,000!

Wedding In Colombia

While many couples prefer the idea of tying the knot somewhere close to home, Rick and Tracey wanted to do things a little differently. Eventually, they agreed to have their wedding in Colombia, of all places! “We’re planning to be married in December in Colombia and of course, I’m beyond pumped,” she wrote. “It’s going to be a destination wedding for us, and I was very happy that I was able to talk him into having one.” However, Gina wasn’t on board…

She Hated The Idea

Gina immediately opposed Rick and Tracey’s plans to get married so far away from home. According to the bride-to-be, Gina couldn’t understand why they’d go all the way to a country where “no one…speaks English.” She was also worried that the level of security in Colombia and how much all the guests would need to pay to get there, amongst other things. While some of Gina’s concerns were valid, Tracey is convinced that there’s more to it than just wedding plans…

They Don’t Get Along

Tracey is convinced that Gina would have been against the wedding plans, whether it was in Colombia or in their backyard. It all boils down to the fact that the two women just don’t get along. “I always knew that she wasn’t really my biggest fan,” she wrote. “She’s polite and very ‘fake’ friendly.” However, it’s not just a clash of personalities that explains Gina and Tracey’s differences. There is one glaring issue that has drawn a wedge between the two…

My Man, Not Yours

One of the roots of Gina and Tracey’s issues is the dynamic that they have with Rick, who considers them to be the two most important women in his life. Tracey believes that her future mother-in-law displays some strange behavior around her fiance. “She’ll do things like sit on my fiance’s lap, or tuck his hair behind his ear, and cut his food for him,” she wrote. “On one occasion I actually saw her actually feed him….in public.”

We Need Boundaries

Naturally, Tracey wanted to sort out this issue in case it got any worse building up to the wedding. Thankfully for Tracey, it seemed like Gina stopped the strange behavior after she told Rick to have a word with her. After that, the bride-to-be made an effort to limit Gina’s involvement in the wedding planning. However, Tracey wrote that “she complains to my fiance behind my back on how she’s being excluded.” Everything ended up coming to a head on one fateful day…

It Will (Never) Happen Again

After Gina complained to Rick about his mother’s bizarre behavior, he knew that he needed to act upon it and have some firm words with her. Sure, he was put between a rock and a hard place. Ultimately though, Rick knew that he needed to make some changes to the dynamic of this relationship in order to move forward smoothly. “To my fiance’s credit, once I told him that I thought that was beyond weird, it never happened again,” she said. Or did it?

The Day Of The Incident

The day that changed everything for the couple started off pretty relaxed, with Gina coming over to take a look at their new home. They were excited to show it to her, as this new house signified a new chapter in their lives. However, instead of congratulating them, Gina seemed to only have words of criticism to throw at them, especially at Tracey. According to her Reddit post, the bones that Gina had to pick with her were completely out of order…

The Day Of The Incident

She Hated Her Engagement Ring

The first thing that Gina criticized Tracey about was the engagement ring that Rick had used to propose to her. As far as she was concerned, it was way too over-the-top. However, Tracey was quick to explain that the stone was a moissanite, meaning that it was more affordable than a typical diamond. “She hates my engagement ring,” she wrote. “It’s far too extravagant and there are CHILDREN STARVING IN AFRICA AND PEOPLE DIE FOR THESE ROCKS (it’s a moissanite).”

The House Is Too Good For Us?

Another criticism Gina made was about the couple’s new home. Similarly to how she called out Tracey on the ring, she didn’t understand why they spent so much money on such a beautiful home. She said the house “is an extravagant display of wealth and just ‘isn’t us,'” she wrote. However, she was quick to defend their actions, claiming that it was a “townhouse” that they were able to purchase for a knock-off price! After all of this, Gina still wasn’t finished…

For many people, the next piece of criticism would have been the final straw, but Tracey managed to prevent herself from doing anything stupid. Gina ended up calling out her future daughter-in-law on her weight and believed that she needed to lose some pounds before the big day. Racey wrote that Gina said, “I’m getting fat. Need to watch the calories so I can ‘fit into my dress. Future [MIL], meanwhile, is bragging about her diet and how chic and slenderizing her mother of the bride dress is.”

It Wasn’t The First Time

Despite Tracey being taken aback by Gina’s harsh words, this wasn’t the first time that the future MIL had thrown shade on the young lady. Although Rick’s mom had made an effort from time to time to stay in contact with Tracey, she often dished out words of criticism, in what seemed to be a desperate attempt to make her more in line with the type of woman she wanted Rick to be with…

OK, Time Out

Fortunately, Rick realized that things were getting a little out of hand between his mother and fiance. So in an act of vigilance, he asked Tracey if she could “help him put a bed in the spare guest room together.” Grateful that he had interrupt Gina from throwing any further shade on her, Tracey proceeded into the room and left her future “MIL” to her own devices. However, after half an hour, Tracey walked into the master bedroom and was stunned by what she was seeing…

Caught Red-Handed

As Tracey walked into the en-suite room for a bathroom break, she couldn’t believe that Gina was standing there, trying on her wedding dress! “What do I find but Future MIL struggling to yank my dress over her head BUT WAS FREAKING STUCK,” she wrote. “I blurted out “what the heck?!” and she immediately started stammering “Oh my God! OH MY GOD! OH GOD!” As if that was crazy enough, the events that followed took the story to unprecedented levels…

Don’t Destroy It!

With little time to process what was happening to her gorgeous Galia Lahav dress, Tracey ran over to Gina and ordered her to take off the dress immediately. Due to the fact that she simply couldn’t get it off, Tracey desperately tried to help her. “At that point my number one concern was her tearing the sheer backing of my dress so I rushed over to help her,” she wrote. However, things ended up going horribly for both of them…

Don’t Destroy It!

Torn & Dirty

After an intense struggle to get the dress off Gina, the end results were devastating for Tracey. “It was all for not as she managed to scratch her way through the back of the dress and completely destroy the sheer material,” she wrote. “She burst the side zipper of the dress and got a dirty foot print on the train.” Naturally, Tracey couldn’t believe what was happening and her initial reaction was to ask Gina why she had done what she did.

She Was Lost For Words

It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Tracey struggled to find the words in this situation. All she could do was hold her head in her hands and try not to scream after what Gina had done to her gorgeous dress. After all of the grief that her future MIL had given her, she couldn’t believe that she went this far. It was at this point that Tracey asked her why she did what she did…

Just Making Sure It Fits

Tracey was furious and wanted to know why her future mother-in-law had made such a crazy decision. “She responded that she was just trying to make sure the dress would fit me; because if the dress fit her, then it absolutely fit me too,” she wrote. “If it didn’t fit her, then I obviously had some work to do.” Little did Gina know that Tracey already had the dress fitted and it was perfect. Rick found out what happened shortly after…

Very Disturbed

In response to the crazy incident, Tracey mentioned how both her and Rick were “very disturbed” by what happened. “Mostly because I doubt she was trying to just try on the dress for funsies; there was also a bouquet of dried flowers on the bed that wasn’t there before,” she wrote. “I think [she] was actually trying to pretend she was the bride…which for so many reasons, is so wrong.” Amazingly, Gina’s behavior ended up going from bad to worse…

She’s Paying Nothing

The next thing that Tracey expected was for Gina to offer to pay for the damage that she had caused. However, the bride-to-be was once again in for a rude awakening. “She hasn’t offered to pay for any of the repairs to the dress. A section of the train is ripped,” she wrote. “I have no idea how much it’s going to cost until I can get to the seamstress tomorrow.” Even after refusing to pay, Gina continued to upset Tracey that day…

No Apologies

Instead of offering to pay for the damage she had caused to the dress, Gina did a complete 180 and told Tracey that she shouldn’t have spent so much on a dress. “In the meantime, in lieu of an apology, she’s lecturing me on spending so much money on a wedding dress,” she wrote. “Clearly the trouble she had getting into the dress was a sign to get something less dramatic and ostentatious.” With time, Tracey developed a plan…

Taking Legal Action

Outraged by what had transpired, Tracey once again took to Reddit. She asked the online community whether or not she should take legal action against her mother-in-law to be. As far she was concerned, she felt like she deserved compensation for the damage. “I know it’s just a dress, but this goes beyond the dress,” she wrote. Many online users supported her plan. However, even those who didn’t also had plenty of opinions to share about Gina’s actions…

Online Outrage

Soon enough, the Reddit post went viral, attracting many comments and reactions from the online community. “This may be a bit scorched earth, but I would personally tell her that either she pays for the repairs, or she is uninvited,” one person wrote. Many expressed their disgust at the incident. One person even claimed that what Gina did made them throw up. But was Tracey able to get some sort of justice? And did she end up getting the happy ending she deserved?

The Wedding’s Off

After a couple of months of uncertainty, Tracey once again took to Reddit. Having previously asked Rick to tell Gina that she was uninvited to the wedding, Tracey later learned that he had caved in and gone back on his word. Although they have canceled the wedding, the couple are still together and want to make it work. “I want to be able to go the distance with him, but while she is in the picture I just don’t think I can,” she said.

So Far So Bad

A few months passed and Tracey was ready to update Reddit users once again about the situation surrounding her fiance’s mother. One positive thing she was able to take away from the time that had passed was that Rick seemed to be keeping his distance from Gina, as promised. “My fiance has kept his end of the bargain; he’s had no contact with FMIL,” she wrote. “How do I know? I’m religiously checking his accounts.” However, things have also taken a turn for the worse…

She’s Stalking Me

Tracey was also quick to share how Gina has continued to act inappropriately, in a variety of ways. For example, she is incessantly trying to contact Tracey. Some examples include missed calls during the early hours, finding “nasty notes” under her door and text messages. “Fiance and I typically go shopping on Wednesday nights,” she wrote. “Guess who was waiting for us in the parking lot at 7PM? We didn’t get out of the car after we saw her pacing around the entrance.”
