You've heard of child-free weddings, but...elder-free weddings?
A bride has the same opinion of elderly people at wedding receptions that she does about kids: that they demand too much oversight and totally kill the vibe.
She is not willing to make an exception for her fiancé's 98-year-old grandmother, whose dream is to attend her grandchildren's weddings, and likely won't be around for the next one. The bride remains unmoved, and is adamant about not partying with Grandma.
She wrote on "Am I The A**hole?":
My fiance (30M) and I (28F) are getting married next month. Everything is going great, but we've been having a serious argument about having his grandmother at our wedding.
We've agreed to not have kids at our wedding, as we want the reception to be a huge party for your adult friends and family with dancing, loud music and an open bar. However, for precisely the same reasons that we don't want kids there, I don't want his elderly grandmother at our wedding either. I said she can come to the ceremony but not the reception. It will be extremely loud and I want it to be a party atmosphere, and she will be extremely out of place. For context, none of my grandparents are still alive, and he still has his last living grandmother.
