They're planning their dream wedding, but there's one major roadblock - the guest list. Emily, with her small family and a handful of friends, wants an intimate gathering. Larry, on the other hand, hails from a large Italian-American family and has a sprawling network of friends. The imbalance is causing quite the stir, and Larry's solution? Telling Emily to 'get over it'. 😱 Let's delve into the drama, shall we? 🍿

Guests picking sides at weddings: old tradition or outdated etiquette?
"YTA. Not because she's an introvert and you're extrovert. Not because you both want a very different wedding. You're TA solely because you told her to 'get over it' in regards to her wedding. Are you seriously trying to marry someone in an event that makes them uncomfortable?! Is that what you're hoping she feels on that day? Shame and discomfort?? Are you seriously trying to force that on her? There are WAY MORE COMPROMISES than 'get over it.' Can you have a small ceremony and large party? Can you guys talk to each other and come to an agreement/solution *together* rather than just one of you deciding? My husband was your wife. Our wedding was only 20 people. His guests were 5 of them. Mine were 15. He didn't have as much fun as me and I will always remember our wedding with a twinge of regret because of that. Where is your compassion for her?" - A heartfelt plea for empathy ❤️
"YTA - Time to leave old 'teammates' and 'highschool friends' off the list. Good luck!"

"YTA. 175 people isn't your closest friends and family; it's a Facebook event. You want to invite 12x the number of people she does!! That's freaking noticeable! Have these people even met her? Feels like SHE is going to notice that her wedding is almost entirely a couple hundred near-strangers. A button isn't going to make them her close family all of a sudden. If you want to throw a giant party for everyone you've ever met, go wild for your 30th birthday. If you want to get married, aim for a ratio a little more even than 12:1. That poor woman."
