The woman shares that she briefly worked in the service industry but her career was short-lived because her dyspraxia meant she was “too clumsy” and “always dropping things”.

She shares that at the first wedding she worked at, she spilled a hot boat of gravy all over the groom’s mother who, as luck would have it, was wearing white. “It was the only wedding I’ve ever served actually,” the woman says in the video. “I spilt a whole boat of gravy into the lap of the mother-in-law of the bride. Obviously, it was hot and it was everywhere but it didn’t burn her, thank God”.

Luckily, the mother of the groom lived close and could go home and change. “I was young and I was beside myself, I was crying, I was so upset because I thought I had ruined this couple’s wedding,” the woman says. However, it appears that this was not the case.

“The bride came over to me, she shook my hand and she thanked me. She said ‘my mother-in-law shouldn’t have been wearing white to my wedding day’, and then she gave me a £55 tip,” she says. “When I see her in town now we still say hi.”

The story struck a chord with many on the social media app who praised her for saving the wedding rather than ruining it. “Not all heroes wear capes, some carry gravy boats,” one user joked. Another added “My mother-in-law nearly wore white to my wedding. Wasn’t until we told her ‘you don’t do that’ she was like ‘when did that become a thing?’ SINCE TIME BEGAN.”

A third shared a story of their own saying “My mother-in-law told me she was wearing white to our wedding. Rather than give her the argument she wanted I wore a black gown instead.”
