Generally, you never upstage the bride at her own wedding. However, this is a bit of an awkward situation.
A bride says she asked a marine to leave her 300 person wedding reception.
The man dressed in his full formal Marine uniform, including his medals. Now, the the wedding was black tie optional, and the bride felt it wasn’t appropriate, adding, “it seemed like he was trying to show off.”
She says he, “of course was acting very well mannered and like a complete gentleman,” but she couldn’t help but notice the amount of attention he was getting. Some young girls asked for photos with him, and lots of people were thanking him for his service, and it just got to be too much for the bride. She notes, “it just felt like the only reason he wore that was to be in the spotlight and make it about him, which I don't think you are supposed to do at someone else's wedding.” She was so upset she asked him to leave because he was stealing her spotlight.
The bride claims she felt bad about the situation and asked people on Reddit if she was in the right, and the responses were mixed. Several service men chimed in and claimed the guy was totally in the wrong for dressing in his uniform, although they don’t exactly think she was right for kicking him out.
One person who wasn’t at all on the bride’s side wrote, “Over 300 people. Guy is in military formal wear and was very well mannered. No question you're an A. An over dramatic, self centred(sic) A."
