My Sister’s Maid of Honor Publicly Insulted Me at Her Wedding – But My Sister Stepped Up and Defended Me

At my sister Sarah’s wedding, her maid of honor made fun of me during her speech, highlighting my past heartbreaks. The crowd laughed, and I felt hurt, but what happened next stunned everyone. My sister’s surprising reaction to the insult changed the course of the evening.

Hello everyone! Emily here. Have you ever had one of those siblings who are supposed to be your automatic best friend? The one you can confide in, the one who always supports you? Well, that’s not exactly how things have been between me and my older sister, Sarah…

Don’t get me wrong, I’m beyond happy for her. She married the love of her life last weekend, and the whole event was like a fairytale. However, there’s a catch — despite being sisters, Sarah and I have never been particularly close.

Maybe it’s the age difference, or perhaps our contrasting personalities. Whatever the reason, her “‘sister’” has always been her best friend, Robin. Naturally, Robin was the maid of honor and, let’s just say, she has never made me feel included in their tight-knit bond.

The reception was wonderful—small and intimate with just close friends and family. Everyone was having a great time, toasts were being given, and happy tears flowed—typical wedding stuff.

Then it was Robin’s turn to speak. Usually, a maid of honor’s speech would be full of love and good wishes, right?


Robin took the microphone, a mischievous glint in her eye.

“To Sarah,” she began, with cheers from the crowd. “The happiest bride I know, and let’s hope her luck finally rubs off on some of us! Especially Emily, who…” She paused for dramatic effect. “…let’s just say it’s a miracle she managed not to mess up bridesmaid duty for once!”

“May your love story continue to flourish, unlike some short stories we know… right, Emily?” Robin added, sending chills down my spine.

“Don’t worry, everyone hits a rough patch, even if it includes a job loss and a broken engagement in the same week! But hey, at least you’ll have plenty of time to help Sarah with all the wedding planning… again!”

I felt my face flush, my smile becoming strained.

A year ago, I faced a double blow—my fiancé left me, and I lost my job, all in the same week. It was a tough period and everyone knew it.
