She shared why on Reddit’s “Am I the A******? (AITA)” forum. Her mother is an immigrant, which led to some cultural clashes in their household since the Reddit poster grew up in the U.S. Her mom didn’t let her wear the prom dress she wanted back in high school. Now that she’s an adult, she wants to be able to pick out her own dress without hearing her mother’s opinion.

“I love my mom, but she is controlling,” the Reddit poster wrote. “Back when I was in high school, I wanted to attend prom with my friends. But my mom and I got into an argument over what I was going to wear.”
“I wanted a fancy sparkling dress like what my friends were getting, and she wanted me to wear one of her dresses. This outdated black dress from the 80s which looked terrible on me. Like, I cried when I put it on I didn’t want to wear it.”
In the end, she wasn’t allowed to go to prom. During high school, she also felt like her mother pushed her to take on extracurriculars she didn’t like instead of the ones she did.
With just $1,000 and one day, this Harlem bedroom gets a brand new look:
“My mom asked me when I’m going to start dress shopping. I hate to say this, but I blurted out, ‘who says you were going with me?'” the bride-to-be said.
“I’m digging my heels into this point. But my dad called an hour ago saying that I really hurt her feelings. I am pretty sure I heard crying on the other end of the line. So maybe I took it too far this time. I need an outside opinion. On one hand, I don’t want her to control this second chance I have. But on the other… I did make her cry.”
Redditors sided with the bride-to-be on this one.
“Her tears are her own responsibility. Not yours,” a person said.
“Your wedding dress, your rules. Simple as that,” another wrote.
“You are right to set this boundary and she has to learn to respect it the hard way,” a Redditor commented.
