  • The conversation about inviting kids to a wedding has been one that has been going on for a while now.
  • All that needs to be said to motivate this policy has been clearly stated for everyone’s understanding.
  • However, there are some family members who still disagree and therefore try to go against the policy.
  • One groom went to Reddit to vent about his three sisters who disobeyed the rule by bringing their children to his wedding.

The anonymous groom married his wife two weeks ago. He wanted a child-free wedding, so they’ve let everyone know of their policy, including both families, relatives and friends, and everyone agreed excluding his family.

“I have three sisters, all with kids from 2-10. My mom said it was illogical to not allow kids since (1 this never happened in the family, and (2, my sisters live towns away so the kids can’t be left alone. After a lot of arguing and others getting involved. I stood my ground, and they agreed not to bring kids.”

Although the family agreed to the no-kids policy, the three sisters showed up with their children after all the guests respected the couple’s decision on the wedding day.

“I saw my two sisters arriving with their kids. I immediately went to ask what the deal is. They began arguing with me when I said I won’t be letting them in with the kids. I saw my older sister come with her kids in the car. I was pissed. I asked why they decided to go against the rule and bring kids,” he shares.

The groom’s mother got involved in the argument, and the groom had to call security to escort them outside.

The groom's parents and aunt left shortly after as they were upset. The groom got nasty texts later, and his cousin posted about the wedding being terrible on Facebook.

Days after the wedding passed, the groom decided to gather his family to discuss the wedding events. “I asked if I allowed my sisters with their kids what message does that send to my in-laws and friends who wanted to bring kids but they couldn’t? My sisters argued with me, and it turned out my mom told them to bring their kids, and said she’d deal with me later.”

After the sisters revealed it was the mom’s idea, the family insisted they need them to re-do the wedding.

“They said the only way to fix it is to have another wedding/party and include everyone, especially kids- I called them unreasonable. They blamed my wife and claimed it was deliberate. I left. They started talking to my wife, trying to convince her that they don’t approve of what happened and that they’re giving us the chance to fix the situation; otherwise, the relationship is damaged.”
