Weddings are stressful enough when everyone is getting along, so when there's even an ounce of family tension emotions can shoot through the roof and it can dampen what should be a fun and life-giving process.
Some families prioritize everybody getting hitched far more than others, and that can lead to salty interactions from single family members feeling the heat of a wedding. Ideally, people would be able to extricate their own insecurities and desires from someone else's big day, but that's not how it always goes down.
AITA for kicking my sister out of my wedding?
So my sister (30 F) and I (33 F) have always had a contentious relationship, and I’ve never understood why. She has always been condescending and rude to me. She also still lives with my mom and is very close to her. Last year, I got engaged to my fiancé (36 M). Everyone was congratulatory except for my sister. Her response was “wow you’re really trying to beat me down the aisle huh.” She wasn’t dating anyone at the time and still isn’t, so I didn’t understand her response. After much pleading from my mom, I asked her to be a bridesmaid. Obviously we postponed our wedding because of COVID, but are hoping to move forward with it next year.
