To ensure the dress remains safe, OP arranges for it to be hung in a secure place in a room above the wedding venue. The bridesmaids are well aware of her particularities regarding the dress.

One reader said, “If you had kicked her out just for spilling the wine, it would’ve been bad. But her trying to minimize what her “honest mistake” did by saying it wasn’t a big deal?”

Another responder wrote: “Even if the dress wasn’t sentimental because of your mom, the fact that it’s your wedding dress automatically makes it VIP. It doesn’t seem Bridezilla.”

A different person states, “Honey, I think you need new friends. That was NOT an accident. Anna did it on purpose, and the others covered for her.”
