There is no shortage of wedding day horror stories on the internet, but one Twitter user just took the (wedding) cake with her viral story about her mother-in-law showing up to her wedding in a wedding dress of her own.


@AmyPennza originally threw out the incendiary tweet in response to a prompt from Jimmy Fallon asking his fans for their best #WeddingFails.

And Amy certainly delivered, asking Twitter to "top that" along with an image for proof.

And, yikes!

The tension in that picture is palpable, and people were having a field day with it:




But the internet wanted all the deets, not just the teaser.




So, after some prodding, Amy revealed the rest of her story.

And it's a doozy.




Amy somehow managed to show some incredible restraint upon seeing the dress.




And for anyone looking to make the mother-in-law a villain, Amy shed some light on her mother-in-law's background that's actually pretty heartbreaking.




Amy shared some of the ways her mother-in-law is frugal, including taking vegetables out of Bloody Marys to save for salads, painting her glasses red with nail polish to look more like Sally Jesse Raphael back in the day, and regularly filling up a water bottle she keeps in her purse with leftover water from eating out at restaurants.

So her dress choice for the wedding really came as no surprise.


But just because she likes to save a buck doesn't mean she doesn't have a giving spirit, as Amy points out.





So it sounds like all was forgiven, and everything worked out in the end.

People were actually kind of shocked.




Not everyone is as forgiving as Amy, though.


Which begs the question: How do you think you would've reacted?

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.
