Bride Furious After Sister Plans On Discussing Her Recent Engagement At Wedding

As we enter the wedding season, emotions are running high for some brides. I, for one, am planning my wedding and I can tell you it's a bit overwhelming. So the last thing I would want is someone else stealing the spotlight from me, the bride. That's understandable, no?

If you agree, I'm sure you'll have plenty to say about this story I'm about to share. Let's find out what happened.

Okay, so here's the thing:

A sister of the bride recently posted on Reddit's AITA (Am I the Asshole) thread asking people if she was being inconsiderate of her sister's wedding. This lady actually got engaged a week before her sister's scheduled ceremony. Oh, oh!

Can you sense what's coming?

Naturally, she's excited and wants to share everything with her family. But her sister, the bride, asked her to specifically refrain from talking about the engagement until after her wedding ceremony. That seems fair enough, no?

Now it gets complicated.

Both sisters haven't seen their entire families for quite some time. So the bride wants to keep the day and the few wedding-related occasions to be all about her. But the sister insists that she wants to take this opportunity to discuss her engagement and her upcoming wedding with the family, too.

See the conundrum?

The engaged sister is furious and thinks that the bride is a bridezilla even though their brother is siding with the bride. After all, she's the one who planned the wedding of her dreams for over a year, and the other sister just got engaged.

Wow, talking about a family drama, huh?

After the sister posted on Reddit asking people to chime in — they sure did. Boy, they had a lot to say. Most people believe that a sister's wedding isn't the right place to discuss your own engagement.

There's a right time and place for that, right?

And doing so at another person's wedding isn't that time. Can I hear an "amen" to that? I mean, if I were the bride in this situation, I would be peeved at my sister. Let's not sugarcoat this, okay?

Here's what other people said:

One Redditor stated, "She is trying to steal the attention away from something so special that was so hard worked for. She doesn't seem to get how much goes into wedding planning. Once she plans her own, any rational person would feel extreme guilt for trying to take over someone else's special planned events."

I couldn't have said it better myself.

And then there were the funny comments like this one.

"If I was her sister I'd announce my pregnancy at her wedding even if there was no baby."

Oh my goodness, ha, ha. Can you imagine how upset the sister would get? OMG! I can just picture the steam coming off of her, lol. Well, I hate to say it, but it serves her right.

So what's your take on this story?

Who, in your opinion, is the asshole here? I might be biased because I'm in the midst of planning my own wedding, but I'm siding with the bride on this one. If somebody tried to upstage me like this on my special day, you bet I would have something not so pleasant to say about it.
