Dec 2018

A bride on Reddit detailed how she asked a couple at her wedding to leave after they brought their infant and toddler

She had explicitly stated on the wedding invitation that the event was kid-free

Other kids at the ceremony, like the flower girl, were picked up before the reception

When the couple’s kids stuck around, the bride had her wedding planner intervene

After the exchange got heated, she asked the couple to leave

She said the incident was ’embarrassing’ but other Redditors assured her that she was not an ‘a**hole’


A bride was faced with the awkward task of asking guests to leave her wedding after they brought their children along — even though she had explicitly warned that it was a child-free event in the invitation.

The anonymous woman posted her story on Reddit this week, recalling the drama that unfolded when a family friend and her husband brought their unwelcome toddler and infant to her big day.

Though she tried to handle it tactfully, the exchange soon grew heated and she asked the couple to leave — a decision that thousands of Redditors have now defended, telling her she was well within her rights.

‘At the actual wedding ceremony, I let it slide. I was preoccupied for obvious reasons,’ she wrote. ‘I also thought that maybe they planned not to attend the reception or to have someone pick the kids up before it started.’

The bride also detailed how she had some children in her wedding ceremony, like her niece acting as the flower girl, but they were taken home before the reception.

But to the fury of the bride, the couple showed up at the reception with their two children in tow, despite instructions on the wedding invitation to leave all kids at home.

‘I mean, everyone was drinking and loud and rowdy and a crying child and another little one running around was not part of the plan,’ she wrote.

Since the bride had other guests to attend to, she asked her wedding planner to speak with the couple about their plans to have their children picked up.

An argument ensued between the couple and the wedding planner, so the bride went over to see what was going on.

‘I think they thought I came to rescue them because they started going on about how rude my event planner was,’ the woman wrote.

‘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 mom apparently offered a ‘sort of apology’ before ensuring the bride that she and her husband would be able to mind their own children during the reception to make sure they didn’t get in the way.

‘I said that wasn’t really the point,’ the bride wrote. ‘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.
