So, when a disapointed ex-guest decided to consult the gloriously petty Reddit group of "Wedding Shamers," about a family disaster, people were eager to dive veil-first into the drama.
Last Christmas, my partner's brother proposed to his sweetie. He selected his teenage daughter, not my partner, to be the best man. Best daughter? Super adorable! However, she ultimately declined because she hates her future stepmum, who will henceforth be referred to as Bridezilla...
So BIL asks my partner to be the best man. My partner hates Bridezilla and questions his brother's sanity, but we're all entitled to our own choices, so of course he's supportive.
Also he's always really wanted to be a best man because he's always wanted to give a speech in front of a crowd. (I told him he should probably just join Toastmasters if this is his ambition.)
