We’ve seen plenty of bridezillas but now it’s the turn of the stepmotherzilla.
One bride posted on Reddit about how her stepmother had ‘excommunicated’ her from the family because she and her fiancee wanted an adults only wedding.
Their decision meant that her step-sister’s one-year-old son wouldn’t be able to come.
The couple wanted to keep their wedding small and knew that once they invited one kid, everyone else would want to bring their children so they decided to have a blanket rule.
The bride explained that when her stepmother found out, she ‘flipped out’.
She said that they decided to pull out of the wedding, excommunicated her from the family and her stepmother had called her fiance’s mother and said some horrible things about him and her mother.
In the now deleted post, she wrote ‘I explained that it wasn’t because we didn’t love him, it was that if we open it up for him to attend then we need to open it up to my fiance’s side of the family which would put us at 13 children and ultimately not be what we were looking for on our day.’
The bride and groom offered to pay for a babysitter for her stepsister and her partner but they refused to come to the wedding without their son.
Eventually the whole family fell out in a massive way.
The bride asked Reddit if they thought she was in the wrong.
Most people agreed that it was her wedding and she could organise it whatever way she wanted.
One said: ‘I’m sorry. It’s your wedding, not your stepmother’s. You are not being unreasonable at all.’
Another added: ‘Why are they excommunicating you over a 1 year olds attendance? That baby will never remember your wedding day and likely would never care that he wasn’t invited.’
‘It’s totally reasonable not to want children at the wedding, especially if that means there will be 13 of them. And you can’t make an exception for just one child, family or not.
‘The fact that you offered to pay for a babysitter is beyond reasonable and it’s clear that your stepmother simply does not care about you or your wedding, only about herself. Do not feel bad about this,’ another person posted.
