Bride Sparks Debate After She Doesn’t Invite Groom’s Friend Because ‘She’s Pretty’

Anyone who has ever been invited to or planned a wedding knows that there's a slippery slope between wanting the perfect day and becoming a bridezilla.

If you've ever read Reddit's 'Am I The A**hole' posts, you'll have seen the multitude of wedding-related stories that inevitably spark debate over who is in the wrong.

This latest one is extremely debate-worthy, with a groom asking whether he is the 'a**hole' after telling his bride to "get her insecurities in check and grow up" after she "humiliated" the groom's co-worker.

In the post, the person writes that he recently got engaged to his fiancé and that they were both extremely happy to plan the wedding.

Some people choose not to invite co-workers, but the couple had been working in their respective jobs for years and they were not just co-workers, but also friends.

The bride was happy with everyone from the groom's workplace being on the guest list, apart from one.

The groom wrote: "[She] is one of my closest friends so this surprised me that [Fiancée] didn't want to invite her. She has met [her] multiple times and there didn't seem to be any issues."

The bride explained that she was concerned about the friendship, as she felt the friend is the type of person to try to sway taken men and be the centre of attention," but she had no evidence for this accusation. The bride simply thought that the friend was too pretty and is insecure about her being in attendance at the wedding.

The bride then went behind his back to give invitations to everyone at his workplace, purposely excluding his female friend by saying "you aren't invited, women like you aren't welcome," sparking rumours that Tally and the groom were having an affair and causing issues at work.

The bride denied this happening and the groom got angry by saying: "If we are really going to get married, get your insecurities in check and grow up."

The bride and her friends have said he is an a**hole, as the wedding is on hold.

Many in the comments said that the groom "should run" and "cancel the wedding" as the bride sounds "horrible".

Several comments suggested that while the bride was justified in not wanting to invite the woman, even though it was her own insecurity, it was her actions in singling her out that were abhorrent.

Brides are commonly known as high-maintenance and the entire concept of weddings stem from the insecurity of women –bridesmaid dresses are designed to be ugly so the bride stands out more – but this bridezilla may have taken it too far.
