Weddings can be a stressful time, especially when family dynamics come into play. One bride-to-be is feeling the pressure from her mom and stepdad over her wedding guest list. Despite her and her fiancee paying for the wedding themselves, her mom and stepdad have been insisting on certain family members being invited. The bride-to-be has held her ground, stating that they don't get to dictate the guest list unless they are willing to pay for it. This has caused some tension and accusations of entitlement. But is she really in the wrong for standing up for what she wants on her special day? Read on to find out and give your opinion on this AITA post.

Planning a wedding is stressful enough without having to deal with family drama. But for one bride-to-be, the pressure from her mom and stepdad to invite certain guests has become a major headache. Despite paying for the wedding herself, the couple has been met with resistance when it comes to the guest list. The bride-to-be's stepdad's family, who she hardly knows, has been a particularly contentious issue. Her mom and stepdad argue that they should be invited to make them feel more comfortable since her dad's side of the family is not involved. But the bride-to-be is standing her ground and refusing to let her wedding be dictated by others. She's already faced pushback for not giving her stepsiblings roles in the wedding, and now she's being called entitled and rude for not wanting to invite strangers to her big day. But is she really in the wrong? Let's take a closer look at the situation and see what others have to say in the comments below.
