Angry Bride Demands Wedding Guests Leave For Not Obeying The Invitation

2018 just might have been the year of crazy wedding stories - from the bride who sent out a dress code based on weight, to the woman who secretly made sure her bridesmaids put on some pounds before her big day, bridezillas have been making lots of headlines. Now, to close out the year comes the story of one bride who resorted to kicking out some guests for not following a rule she clearly listed on her invitations.
However, unlike some of the other bride stories, this one isn't so clear-cut - in fact, the bride herself didn't know how to feel about everything that went down so she turned to Reddit to ask if she was wrong about how she reacted.
In her post, the bride explained that she and her husband-to-be wanted an adults-only event so they requested on their invitations that guests not bring children. However, one couple still had their toddler and baby tag along for the ceremony. The bride stated that she "let it slide" since she was preoccupied and assumed they certainly wouldn't bring the kids to reception... but they did.
In her post, the woman described what happened next,
"My event planner went to talk to the couple. I could tell they were arguing with my event planner though so I went over to help him. I think they thought I came to rescue them because they started going on about how rude my event planner was. I explained that I had actually sent him over to discuss the children. I reiterated that the event was child-free and said that I had stated so clearly on my invitations. The wife gave a sort of apology and then assured me that they were capable of minding their own children to make sure they didn't get in the way of anything. I said that wasn't really the point. That's when my now-husband comes over and he and the other woman's husband begin going back and forth and things got a little heated. Finally I snapped and said that they just needed to go, which, thankfully they did without much more noise. Still, the whole scene was incredibly embarrassing which is exactly what I wanted to avoid. I really hate that my wedding day had to be somewhat marred by this incident. According to my mother, everyone was talking about it and I guess enjoying a little dramatic entertainment."
Since posting her story, thousands of people have commented and the overwhelming consensus was that the bride did the right thing since it was her wedding and she sets the rules.
She responded writing, "Thank you all so much for the feedback. What I've gotten from this is that most people think that the couple was rude." She went on to say that some family members did feel it was inappropriate for her to give the couple the boot, but no one has approached her directly to discuss it.
