Maid Of Honor Was Told She Could Wear “Anything,” So She Wore A T-Rex Suit

Be careful what you tell your maid of honor.

Every couple wants their wedding to run smoothly. The bridal party–especially the maid of honor and best man–prevent things from going wrong. And who is more trustworthy than the bride’s own sister?

One Nebraska bride, Deanna Adams, asked her sister, Christina Meador, to be her maid of honor. When Christina asked what she should wear, the bride said “anything.” That was either the biggest mistake or the greatest blessing of her wedding.

Christina surprised her sister by showing up in an inflatable T-rex costume. She walked down the aisle, arm-in-claw with a groomsman, carrying a bouquet in full dinosaur form. As with any wedding, the entire event was caught on film. Later on, Christina abandoned the suit because it was “very hot.” She wore a $20 dress underneath.

On August 11, Christina posted a photo of her stunt on Facebook. “When you’re the maid of honor and told you can wear anything you choose,” she captioned it. “I regret nothing.” The photo has since gone viral, garnering 35,000 shares and over 18,000 comments.

While some commenters lauded the stunt, others expressed concern over whether the couple felt okay with it. But don’t worry; Deanna approved of the outfit before the wedding began. The maid of honor would often text crazy ideas to her sister, and she told Deanna about the costume choice once she arrived in Nebraska. “Surprisingly, she was okay with it!” Christina said.

“My sister is awesome, and I genuinely was not kidding when I said she could wear whatever she wanted,” said Deanna. She understood that her sister didn’t like fancy dresses and couldn’t afford one.

Christina recalled, “I remember being surprised that everyone seemed to be doing their best to avoid noticing the elephant in the room (or should I say ‘dino’). But it was hard to see in the costume.”

One thing’s for sure: Deanna and her husband, Joby, will have a hilarious wedding story for the rest of their lives.
