This controversial question has left the internet divided…
We’ve all heard the term “bridezilla.”
There’s something about a wedding that just seems to bring about the worst in people!
Diva demands are a wedding norm.
And many brides are often known to become very difficult when planning their dream wedding.
However, there has to be a limit…
Some brides are known to take things way too far… and one bride has ruffled a lot of feathers recently.
She took to Reddit, under the username Strange-County-5848, to share her story.
“I (30F) am getting married to my fiancé (31M) in the fall and we’re planning the wedding now,” she began.
“Both of us have big families so we’re trying to figure out how to make our guest list work with our budget.
“Our grandparents are all in their 80s and his grandma has Alzheimer’s — she forgets who people are, doesn’t know where she is a lot of the time, and sometimes she just randomly starts crying or yelling and it’s really depressing,” she continued.
“Both my grandparents also have some health issues and demand a lot of care and attention.
“I really don’t want any of this to ruin our big day,” said the bride.
“I don’t want his grandma shouting or making noise during the ceremony or my grandpa needing help and being a big distraction, and I feel like people are going to be paying a lot of attention to them instead of the wedding and the wedding couple.
“So my fiancé and I decided that we don’t want anyone over 70 at the wedding and are making a blanket rule so it’s fair to everyone,” she added.
“I think they would be bored and more comfortable at home anyway, and it’s an opportunity for their caregivers to come out and relax and have fun without worrying about caregiving responsibilities for the evening.
“My fiancé is on board but the rest of my family is upset. AITA?” the bride finished.
Well, it seems that the internet has made their decision…
“Jesus Christ, you have got to be kidding. You are the worst. YTA,” wrote one person.
“For real. YTA Op. If my cousin or sibling was getting married and tried to pull this cr*p I would 100% skip their wedding and take my grandparents out for dinner or something. And I’d implore my other family members to do the same,” another added.
A third agreed and said: “YTA. This should be up to the caregiver and not you. If the caregiver believes the grandparent can’t handle it (the one who’s not cognitive) maybe there’s a day program grandparent can be dropped off at that day. Or their doctor can direct them to someday nurses. Or worse case during the main events, they’re distracted in a separate space.”
