Weddings are a time for love, joy, and celebration, but what happens when family dynamics complicate the planning process? One bride-to-be is facing backlash from her mother for refusing to cater to her autistic brother's specific needs at her wedding. Growing up, she never had anything to herself, as everything revolved around her brother. Now, she wants her big day to be all about her and her fiancé. But is she being selfish, or is it time for her to finally have something of her own? 🤔💍

Caught in the Crossfire: Family vs. Bride's Desires

This bride-to-be is caught in a family conflict as she refuses to cater to her autistic brother's needs at her wedding. Her mother is furious, calling her selfish and horrible for not considering her brother's needs. But the bride argues that she deserves one day where everything isn't about her brother. She wants her wedding to be a reflection of her and her fiancé's tastes and preferences. With the couple paying for the wedding themselves, the bride is determined to stick to her plans. Will this family find a compromise, or will the big day be overshadowed by drama? 😓💔
