Weddings are supposed to be a celebration of love, but what happens when family drama threatens to steal the spotlight? Our bride-to-be (28F) is facing a dilemma as she plans her dream wedding reception. Her autistic niece has been included in the ceremony, but the bride and her fiancé (29M) have decided on an adults-only reception. The problem? The niece's mother is demanding her daughter be accommodated at the reception too, and she's not taking no for an answer. 😳🎉

Bride vs Sister: Who Will Win? 🤼‍♀️

Caught in a whirlwind of family drama, our bride-to-be is torn between her dream wedding reception and accommodating her autistic niece. Despite making adjustments to the ceremony, her sister-in-law remains unsatisfied and has taken matters into her own hands, jeopardizing the bride's job. With her fiancé and mother-in-law on her side, the bride is left questioning her own actions. Will they find a solution, or will this family feud escalate even further? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿📣

NTA. FSIL's demands are outrageous. Cut ties and consider legal action.

NTA. SIL is deplorable for using her daughter's condition to blackmail. OP accommodated the ceremony, but it's a private event. SIL should take her daughter home after the ceremony and not attend the reception. #FamilyDrama
