When Deanna Adams decided to let her bridesmaid choose an outfit of their liking, she had no idea what she was getting herself into.
Brides control every part of their wedding, but Deanna Adams decided to let her bridesmaids choose an outfit of their liking, she had no idea what she was getting herself into. After hearing that she could wear anything to the wedding, Adams' sister and maid of honor Christina Meador chose a rather unconventional costume that no one in the party could have ever guessed. Holding a beautiful bouquet of flowers, Meador entered the wedding venue in an enormous, inflatable dinosaur costume. The Texas resident also shared a photo of herself standing beside her sister in the complete Tyrannosaurus rex ensemble on Facebook. Of course, the post blew up in no time cause it's not every day that we see a maid of honor dressed like an extinct animal.
"When you're maid of honor and told you can wear anything you choose...I regret nothing," read the caption of the post, which was uploaded nearly two years ago. Speaking to Daily Mail, Meador recalled how her sister had asked her to be the maid of honor during her wedding. To keep the process simple and comfortable, she gave her the go-ahead to choose whatever outfit she wanted as long as she was a part of her special day. "She, knowing that I'm not a big fan of wearing formal dresses and that I probably wouldn't have a lot of money to buy something really nice, reassured me by letting me know that I could pick out any outfit that I choose," said Meador.
Thus, the then-38-year-old decided to buy something that she could wear even after the wedding. "Well, she did say anything, and if I'm spending more than $50, I want it to be a dinosaur costume, because they're fantastic, and I've always wanted one," she explained. While attending a wedding in a dinosaur costume would easily shock anyone, Meador decided to at least give her sister a heads up. She was soon left surprised when Adams said she "was OK with it."
"I had decided that she would appreciate the dinosaur costume and it would be fun to mess with her about wearing it during the ceremony," she recalled. "I arrived in Nebraska for the wedding, my sister picks me and my mom up from our hotel to go to a final dress fitting, and I bring it up on the ride that I had bought it and plan to wear it, and she laughed," added Meador who was left surprised by sister's response. Although Meador did give her sister several chances to go back on her decision on the wedding day, Adams didn't seem to have a problem with a T. rex attending her wedding.
Wish those T Rex costumes had been around in 1992 when I got married!! Maid of honor shows up to wedding in T. rex costume after being told she could wear anything https://t.co/oH4dNr5ETd— Amy Wright (@amywrightlib) September 16, 2019
While everyone had a good laugh seeing the outfit, there were some who criticized the maid of honor for her choice of clothing. But Meador was unfazed by it, especially because her sister came to her rescue. "It's not a joke, it's a giant middle finger at spending thousands of dollars and putting ungodly amounts of pressure on ourselves just to please a bunch of people who, in the end, only want free food and drink. The point was to get married to the man who treats me like I hung the moon, and we did that part," said Adams responding to a negative comment. "My sister is awesome and I genuinely was not kidding when I said she could wear whatever she wanted."
