Wedding drama! 🌸 Who gets to be the co-flower girl?

Wedding planning is stressful and it's even more stressful when it comes to family politics. One groom-to-be is facing a dilemma when it comes to who gets to be the flower girl(s) at his wedding. He has one niece, Brynn, who he adores and wants to share the spotlight with Aubrey, his fiancée's niece. However, his fiancée insists that there can only be one flower girl and chooses Aubrey. The groom suggests alternative ideas like having Brynn hold a sign or walk with Aubrey, but his fiancée refuses.

The situation escalates when the groom finds out that the real reason his fiancée doesn't want Brynn to be a co-flower girl is that Brynn has Down Syndrome. Outraged by his fiancée's ableism, the groom leaves their apartment and stays with his sister and niece. Will the couple be able to come to a compromise or is this the end of their engagement? Keep reading to find out what happens next in the comments and reactions.
