Weddings are times for celebration, but they can also be filled with emotionally tense moments between family members. The pressure of picking your wedding party, assigning roles to extended family, curating the larger family photos, and deciding who gets an invitation in the first place can be deeply exhausting.
This dynamic is even harder when family members get in their feelings about decisions that truly aren't meant to be hurtful. Weddings are expensive to throw, time consuming to plan, and every couple has a different vision and philosophy, so it's impossible to please everyone involved.
AITA for telling my grandma that her boyfriend can not be in my formal wedding photos?
When OP's grandpa passed a few years back it was hard on the whole family, and now after years of grieving her grandma started dating her current boyfriend Ted.
My grandparents helped raise me and I have been very close with them my entire life. My grandfather passed away a few years ago and it was obviously hard on the family. About 6 months ago, my grandmother began dating a man we’ll call Ted. I like Ted fine and I was completely okay with her moving on, she has every right to. I don’t know him very well as I live out of state but I have met him once when I went back to visit some family in the area.
