Wedding planning is a minefield no matter what — but this woman's story includes just about every touchy subject you can think of.
A Black woman wrote to Reddit asking for advice after her white mother and siblings insisted that she help plan a wedding on a Southern plantation — and told her her feelings were no big deal when she voiced concerns.
To make matters worse, her brother — the groom — is just getting over cancer. And her future sister-in-law ended up finding the Reddit post. Oof.
Buckle up, y'all!
My refusal to help pay and attend my brothers plantation wedding has caused a massive rift between myself,my family and future sil.
My maternal side of the family is white and I am the only black person on that side of my family. My mother had my siblings with her first husband who died of cancer and then she had me after a short lived fling with a Black British man. My brothers are white and so are their partners.
