This is a cautionary tale of sorts. A man and a woman were in the process of getting married when the man’s girlfriend showed up. The girlfriend wasn’t on the guest list, but that didn’t stop her. And her entrance caused quite a scene. She, too, was wearing a wedding dress. Because this was a wedding, the resulting chaos was all caught on film.

The unfortunate wedding happened in the town of Benoni in north-east South Africa. The groom and the uninvited guest got into a heated row. His other bride stood behind, at first, clearly surprised by the situation.

“When the clip starts,” The Daily Mail writes, “the woman is already at the altar, and the groom can be seen trying to persuade her to leave and not spoil his big day.”
This one that side chicks are storming weddings now , my Wedding definitely going to be Strictly by Invitation.
I can’t allow one babe to come spoil my day. Lol

The guests, it appears, were split by the appearance of a second love interest. Some seemed amused. Others were appalled.

The video appeared on social media with the caption: “Side chick rocked up at the wedding also wearing a wedding dress [laughter emojis] groom trying to calm the situation.”
I’m just from watching a video where the side chick showed up to the man’s wedding in a whole white gown with the veil and everything 🤣

The reaction on Twitter is almost as amusing as the situation, at least for those of us who didn’t have a horse in this particular race. There were lots of laughing/crying emojis, and no shortage of expletive laden rants.

The real surprise from the social media response is how evenly viewers were split on who was to blame.

They didn’t place any blame on the philandering groom-to-be.
