Not making the cut for the guest list at a wedding is never a pleasant experience…
And it usually leads to a lot of hurt feelings.
So did this woman go too far after she refused to be her sister’s maid of honor because of who wasn’t invited to the wedding?
Check out her story and let us know what you think in the comments.
AITA for refusing to be my sister’s MOH after she said I can’t bring my BF of 10 years and my children to her wedding because we are not married?
“I (33f) have been with my bf (35m) for over 10 years now. We have 2 kids together (twins) aged 8.
I have an older sister (38) Nina who is getting married to Dan (37m). She has a 16 yo and a 5yo from her previous relationship. She have known Dan for about 2 years.
Her wedding is in 2 weeks time, I was meant to be a Maid of Honour and had my final dress fitting and everything about a week ago, since Nina is very particular how she wants her wedding to go so the dresses took 2-3 months to be made.
The MOH dress and bridesmaid dresses are slightly different where MOH dress looks more upgraded compared to bridesmaid and is closer in style to the bride dress. Because I’m her only sister Nina said she couldn’t imagine anyone else wearing the MOH dress.
Last week I found out that neither my boyfriend nor my twins are invited to the wedding as my sister has cancelled their invitations (the wedding is not child free since her kids and our nephews and nieces are going to be there).
When I have asked her what is wrong she said she doesn’t feel comfortable having my bf at her wedding because we are still not married and since the twins were born outside of marriage, they can’t come in too.
I was furious and have reminded her that she herself has 2 kids that were born “outside of marriage” (this is her first marriage) and she is currently pregnant with another one. Nina said she “understood her sins and is working to redeem them”, but her word is final.
So me alongside with few others bridemaids have pulled out from the wedding and told her we will not be coming since Nina decided to uninvite our boyfriends and kids. I have also said I will not be giving my MOH dress either since I have fully paid for it and for all the fittings.
My sister called me an a**hole and is asking our parents to do something, since she can’t have another MOH and the dress will take too long to be made and everything is already fully paid.
Here’s what Reddit users said about this.
One person said said she’s NTA and maybe her sister is dealing with mental illness.
Another reader disagreed and said her sister is just a judgmental a**hole.
And this reader said she’s NTA and she should just back out of the wedding.
