A woman's wedding dress choice has her whole family at each other's throats. She asked Reddit's "Am I the A******" forum for advice. The bride-to-be wanted to wear a replica of the dress from the 1905 painting "Ophelia" by John William Waterhouse. She couldn't find it anymore so is sewing it herself. But when her family found out she wasn't wearing a white wedding dress, they lost it. "When they found out the dress is blue and (gasp) red, s*** hit the fan. A Christian bride NEEDS to be married in virginal white, or people will think she's a whore" . She didn't want to change her dress, but everyone in the family seemed to have an opinion about it. "My mom keeps leaving crying voicemails," the Reddit poster said. "Now she, her siblings, my dad, and maternal grandparents say they won't come" . Reddit users thought the bride was being reasonable. "That's their problem," one user wrote. "It's literally none of their business," another said. "Your wedding day is for YOU and your fiance," a person said
