A woman dropped out of her sister’s wedding due to an emotional disagreement.
She shared what happened on Reddit’s “Am I the A******?” forum. Her sister is getting married. The bride asked the Reddit poster’s 4-year-old daughter to be the flower girl at the wedding. But when the sister didn’t like the little girl’s performance, she fired her niece.
“I’m gonna be blunt: My sister has always been one of those people that has to have everything perfect to the point that sometimes it was hard to be around her,” the Reddit poster said. “I was kinda nervous when she asked me and my daughter to be bridesmaids because I knew she was gonna be a massive bridezilla. I told her from the start if she was [in] any way nasty to my child, I wouldn’t stand for it. She assured me she would never be nasty [to my daughter]. Apparently, my 4-year-old wasn’t doing everything right and [my sister] was afraid she was gonna ‘mess up.’ I told her [my daughter was] doing a pretty good job, and everyone was always praising her. I asked her straight up, ‘Did she think her niece wasn’t good enough to be in [the] wedding?’ She replied with, ‘Not as something big as a flower girl but [my daughter was OK] to attend.'”
The Reddit poster dreaded the thought of having to tell her daughter she was no longer the flower girl.
“I broke the news to my child,” the Reddit poster wrote. “Even though I tried my hardest [to] sugarcoat it as much as possible, the news still broke her heart. She cried herself to sleep. Well, after a week, I was a no-show for [everything wedding-related]. My sister started to panic and started to get everyone to talk to me. When I told them why [I was a no-show], a good number of our family (including bridesmaids) dropped out. We ended up going away for a few weeks away with no phone [service]. When we came back, my sister had sent me multiple letters and emails apologizing. Her in-laws and husband have called me an a****** for doing what I did.”
Reddit users thought the poster had every right to drop out of the wedding.
“Your sister 100% sounds like a Bridezilla,” someone commented.
“This is the only way to respond to your awful sister,” another wrote.
“Your sister sounds like a nightmare and crappy person,” a user replied.
