A wedding is one of the biggest celebrations in a person’s life. You need to plan it carefully so everything will go well and the guests will have a great time. And if you want a big celebration, you need to choose who will be in your wedding party because it’s not enough for just you and your partner to celebrate.

Having bridesmaids and groomsmen makes the weddings look like something from a movie, but not everyone has them. It’s up to the couple how big their wedding party is going to be.

This woman on Reddit prepared for a big celebration and had six bridesmaids. But then because of certain circumstances, she did not have her sister-in-law as a guest and that meant she did not have a spot in the wedding party. So the woman came up with an idea to include her in another way, by asking one of her bridesmaids to give up their spot so the sister-in-law could be a bridesmaid.

That led to drama among the bridesmaids and now the woman is asking if she was responsible for it, wondering if asking one of the bridesmaids to step down was wrong. Here's how the full story unfolded.

A wedding with conflicting views 👰🤦🏽‍♀️ What would you do?

It's only a couple of months until an upcoming wedding, but the bride and her fiance are now dealing with an unexpected situation. The bride's fiance had another sister, Anne (31 F), who wasn't invited to the wedding originally due to family issues but has now received a last-minute invite.

However, the couple only had room for six bridesmaids, so the bride asked one of the bridesmaids, her cousin Cassie (25F), to step down in order to make room for Anne. Cassie seemed confused by the request, and the other bridesmaids suggested that the bride apologizes to Cassie.

Some of the bride's family think she handled the situation correctly, but her mother had a different opinion. This leaves the bride wondering if she did the right thing. Let's hear the reactions and comments from our readers on the thread to see what they think.
