Many people have a mental picture of their dream wedding, but only some commit to creating it.
It’s not unusual for a bride to dream of white doves shower white flowers on her head that day, actually that is unusual, but point is, people have had varied imaginations on how special they want that day to be.
This bride is no exception, as she spent over a year planning for her wedding, and the prominent feature of the wedding was this; child-free.
She wanted the wedding to be attended by only adults, precisely 70 adults. She had informed her guests several months prior, so she absolutely trusted that they would adhere to it.
Well, everyone did, except her sister, who also happened to be her bridesmaid.
Her sister had called that morning, with the news that her babysitter couldn’t make it, so could she please bring her two boys; aged 2 and 5 to the wedding?
The bride did not like this unexpected turn, but she reluctantly agreed, on the condition that the boys are well behaved and their father kept an eye on them.
Alas, her sister arrived late, because according to her; “the boys were fussing getting ready.”
Due to this, her sister missed the pictures she should have taken with her before the ceremony began.
The ceremony commenced, and as the bride was about to say her vows, one of the boys began to disturb.
This distracted the bride, and she had to restart her vow.
Halfway through the vow, the younger boy began to cry!
His father promptly took him outside, but due to the fact that the ceremony was in an open field, the boy’s voice could still be heard, until he and his father had gone a good distance.
After the vows, the bride did not see her sister for the remainder of the ceremony until the dance. Her sister finally came to meet her and said, “haha sorry about (nephew), it was nap time! He’s settled now.”
The bride could not accept this apology and told her sister so. Her sister replied sorry, and that she was blowing things out of proportion.
This was the final stroke, as the bride sparked in anger and told her sister to leave her wedding.
Her sister was stunned, and left, angrily. Their mother was upset too, but there was nothing she could do.
Do you think the sister’s action was justified or cruel?
