As most brides-to-be would attest to, a wedding could be ruined by something as simple as a maid of honor showing up in a dress that doesn’t match the outfits worn by the rest of the party. So imagine what a woman in Nebraska thought when her sister, who was serving as her maid of honor, arrived in a full T-Rex costume.

The wedding day nightmare occurred Monday at the nuptials of Deanna Adams, who, in all fairness, told her sister she could choose her own ensemble for the big day. “About a year ago, my big sister texted me asking if I would be her maid of honor,” Christina Meador says. “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.”

And that’s exactly what Meador did, purchasing a $50 dinosaur costume for the blessed event. “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 says. Fortunately, her sister was good-natured about the non-traditional outfit, saying, “My sister is awesome!”

This reminds me of my best friend, who came out in a unicorn blow-up costume for the dress reveal. Her fiancée thought it was hysterical. I later donned the suit and danced during the reception! See pics below:
