WEARING jeans and a nice top to go out for dinner is common – it's less so at a wedding.
But one woman has said her sister is 'shallow' for being furious that she wore jeans and a top to her black tie wedding day.
The anonymous 19-year-old took to Reddit to ask if she was in the wrong for her outfit choice – and many said she was.
She explained: "I simply dress more masculine and casual. I never liked doing my hair or my makeup and I was never into that feminine stuff.
"My sister got married last week and ever since her wedding planning started taking place I've been told that I should dress appropriately for the wedding.
"They expected me to make my hair or makeup but this is just not for me."

She said she didn't think she should have to change who she was for her sister's big day.
It seemed her family tried to find a comprise as she confessed they told her she didn't have to wear a dress but to wear something nice.

After trying on different suits, she didn't feel comfortable in anything and settled on wearing 'a more expensive and "stylish" pair of jeans that I own with a blue top that is not casual but not formal either.'
When she arrived at the venue she was denied entry as it was a black tie venue, but her sister convinced them to let her in on this occasion.

After getting into the venue her sister ignored her for the night – later her parents called her immature and told her she should apologise to her sister.
She explained: "I called my sister trying to talk it out and I said that we should really let this go, it's just clothes.
"My sister then started ranting about how on her wedding day she had to stress about convincing the owner of the venue to let me in because I couldn't follow one simple and common rule.
"She said that me proving how different I am was more important than making a small compromise and wearing a suit at least.
"I explained how it's such a stupid argument because why would I have to wear a suit and how shallow she is for caring so much about appearances and outfits and that her wedding should be special to her beyond the sparkles and the expensive hair and makeup."
Her sister hit back saying that she wished she hadn't convinced the venue owner to let her in.
She asked Reddit users if she was in the wrong for her outfit choice – and many said she was.
One wrote: "HER wedding wasn’t about you. You made it about you. That’s selfish."

"Dress codes are a thing. We abide by them daily. You can’t wear a bikini to the office, e.g. Your sister is right – why couldn’t you just put yourself second for one day and played along?" Another commented.
A third said: "Her wedding wasn't about you, there was a dress code and you refused to adhere to it. Very few people are actually comfortable in wedding clothes but you suck it up for the person you love special day."
