A young woman took to Reddit’s “Petty Revenge” subthread, recalling the time she got revenge on her step-sister for trying to wear a wedding dress to her engagement party.
The Original Poster (OP) and her step-sister, H, have always been at odds with each other. They were born just 20 days apart, and their fathers’ infidelity created a rift between their mothers and a lifelong feud between the sisters.
Their relationship has always been complicated. H has always sought to one-up OP, even though they come from a similar economic backgrounds. The tension between their mothers has only added to the drama between the sisters.
OP is getting married and is throwing an engagement party for all the guests, including H and H’s mother. Getting engaged created additional static between the sisters because of H’s insatiable need always to upstage OP.

Their relationship reached a boiling point when OP’s engagement party was approaching.
OP had planned a casual-formal event, but when she found out about H’s plans to wear a stunning, opulent white dress, she was determined not to let her half-sister upstage her once again.
In a bold move, OP transformed the event into a costume party, inviting guests to dress in their wildest attire.
She relayed the message to her father via text and asked him to let H and her mother know of the last-minute changes.
OP knew the likelihood of him remembering to tell them was slim, which was all part of her plan for revenge.
The guests arrived dressed in colorful costumes, festive hats, and wigs, adding to the lively atmosphere.
H was nowhere to be seen until suddenly she made a grand entrance, dressed in her magnificent white gown.
As soon as she realized she was the only one not in costume, she got immediately upset.
It reached the tipping point when OP’s fiancé walked up to her and said, “her bride dress looked amazing for a cheap costume.”
She immediately broke down in tears, unable to handle the embarrassment.
OP’s father and H’s mother scolded her for being childish, reminding her that she could have communicated the change of plans herself instead of relying on OP’s father to relay the message.
Despite the drama at the engagement party, OP and her fiancé celebrated their love surrounded by friends and family.
But the memory of H’s embarrassment will long be remembered, as the sisters’ long-standing feud reached new heights at the unforgettable engagement party.
In the end, OP ended up cutting off H, her father, and H’s mom over the incident, which she doesn’t regret.
PaulFromAtlanta was impressed by OP’s fiance’s remark to H during the engagement party. He explained, “So he’s a keeper. Excellent petty revenge.”
Another Redditor said, “And you aren’t being childish. You asked your dad to do something that shouldn’t have been difficult to do unless he has a brain injury. He’s the childish one for blaming you for his inability to relay a simple message. And for not babying the half sister.”
One user warned, “For the love of all you hold sacred, DO NOT LET THIS GIRL ATTEND YOUR WEDDING.”
What would you do? Would you change your engagement party for petty revenge? Who was being childish here?
