Weddings can be a source of joy and celebration, but they can also bring out the drama in families. One mom found herself in a sticky situation when her brother-in-law asked her two young daughters to be flower girls in his wedding - with a catch. The girls were only wanted for the ceremony and pictures, but not the reception. What's a mom to do? 🤔💔

Mom's Tough Decision 🌺👩‍👧‍👧

Caught between her brother-in-law's wedding wishes and her own family's needs, this mom made the tough decision to skip the wedding altogether. While the couple originally seemed fine with her and the girls staying back, they were upset when they realized they wouldn't be attending at all. With no compromise offered, the mom is left wondering if she's in the wrong or if the couple's demands were unreasonable. Let's see what the internet thinks of this flower girl fiasco... 🌸🤔
