YOUR wedding is meant to be one of the most important days of your life – so with that in mind, your loved ones will probably give you a free pass if you turn into a bit of a bridezilla.
But when do you draw the line between being a bridezilla and actually just plain rude?!
Well, one woman has taken to Reddit’s Am I The A**hole thread to explain what happened when her sister turned into a ‘selfish bridezilla’.
And it’s safe to say that we are shocked.
She said: “My sister is getting married next month.
“My husband and I were both planning on going but when we got the invitation it was only for me.
“When I called my sister and asked about it she said my husband was of course fine to come but she requested that he not be in any family photos.”
The woman revealed that her husband is in a wheelchair and her family have only ever known him to be in a wheelchair.
She explained: “My husband is in a wheelchair.
“I've been married to him for 8 years.
“He has been in a wheelchair since he was 16 and my family has always ever known him to be in his chair.
“Apparently my sister doesn't want him in any of her wedding photos because she is afraid that he'll take attention away from her because he is "different" .
“She justifies this by saying when people come over and see our family photo they always ask about him because hes the only one that is in a wheelchair so he stands out.
“She says she wants to be the main focus in her photos.”

The woman was understandably left fuming at her sister’s attitude and told her she nor her husband would attend the wedding.
She continued: “I was livid. I went off on her and told her she was being a selfish bridezilla.
“I told her we wouldn't be coming.
“I've been getting calls from parents and relatives telling me I need to apologize to my sister because now she's upset.
“I'm angry at them for thinking it's OK to leave my husband out of family photos because of his disability.
“My husband hates being a burden on people and he says he's fine with not being in the photos.
“Which made me even angrier because now he feels bad about himself for something I feel is unwarranted.
“Am I the a**hole if I don't support my sister's big day because of this?
“My husband says we should be there for the family even if he can't be in the photos.
“My family says I need to apologize.
“But I feel like this is an issue I need to fight for. Am I wrong?”
Many Reddit users took to the comments to express how horrified they were at the bride’s behaviour.
One person said: “This is ABSOLUTELY an issue that you need to fight for. Your sister wants to exclude your husband for no other reason than his wheelchair, and that’s unacceptable.
"She is being a bridezilla, for sure, and your family members are backing her up.
"Don’t feel one ounce of guilt for her. That’s just freaking awful, and she needs to get over herself."
Another added: “Her sister wanting to exclude the husband for being in a wheelchair sounds pretty ableist.”
A third commented: “Your sister wants to spend “her day” disrespecting your loving marriage because she thinks she’s competing with a disability for attention.
"I wouldn’t go to the wedding either because your sister cares more about photos than humans.
"Tell her to hire some actors that look exactly as she wants them. That way she gets her perfect moment and you don’t have to be there.”
Meanwhile, my fiancée jilted me at the altar then BLOCKED me with no warning – three months on I still don’t know why.
Also, I asked my brother for £20,000 for my wedding but he refused and now I won’t take his calls, says young bride.
