A bride is under fire for sending out a diet plan with her wedding invitation to her pregnant sister-in-law.
The bride’s brother went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum to share the incident. His pregnant wife was mortified when she received his sister’s wedding invitation with a diet plan. He decided to confront his sister about the issue, but she and his mother insisted that he was overreacting.
“My sister’s wedding is in two months,” the Reddit poster said. “My wife noticed something else was sent along with the invitation. She came to me and handed me the envelope and she looked so upset, almost crying. I opened it and found that my sister sent a 30-day pre-wedding diet plan. I looked at it. And I don’t know what to say about it honestly. I don’t know whose idea this is or who made this plan but it’s awful. Literally, the worst thing I’ve seen in a while. My sister basically wanted my wife (my wife’s pregnant btw) to lose weight by following this diet so she could look ‘fit’ at the wedding.”
Not only was his wife not a bridesmaid, but the diet plan had ingredients his wife was allergic to.
“I called sister and I argued with her,” he wrote. “After she berated me for objecting to her ‘plan’ [she] said I was trying to ruin her day. I told her we’re not coming and that I threw the invitation in the trashbin. She got my mom involved. My mom argued with me saying as her brother I needed to support her and be there for her. Said that I shouldn’t make this personal because. Everyone got a copy of this plan.”
Reddit users thought the diet plan was offensive.
“To send this at all is appalling and idiotic, but to send this to a pregnant woman is a whole new level of stupid,” one person said.
“Your sister was horrendously offensive to everyone,” another wrote.
“Even if she wasn’t pregnant, a diet plan would be disgusting,” someone commented.
