A bride has been branded extremely “selfish” after she accused her sister of getting pregnant to “distract her attention” on her wedding day.
The unnamed woman took to Facebook to ask in a now-deleted post if it was “dramatic” that she refused to change her wedding date after finding out her sister – who is also her maid of honor – was there – was pregnant.
The post was shared on Reddit under a thread titled: wedding shamingwhere users of the social media platform rate brides, guests and members of wedding parties.
The bridezilla sparked furious outrage when she accused her sister of being pregnant in a bid to ruin their wedding day, while her mother and fiancée urged her to postpone the ceremony.

An unnamed woman asked in a since-deleted post on Facebook if it was “dramatic” that she refused to change her wedding date after finding out her sister was pregnant
The post said, “My maid of honor just announced she’s pregnant.” And she’s due around my wedding anniversary (October 26, 2023).
“She and her husband have been trying for a while and I’d love to be happy for her, but I’m seriously considering excluding her from the wedding.”
Do you think the bride is right?
The unnamed bride-to-be went on to explain that her sister got pregnant “on purpose” to keep her out of the spotlight.
“I feel like she did that on purpose to divert attention from me.” “The only problem is that she’s my sister and my parents are telling me to postpone the wedding for her,” she continued .
The woman added that she refused to change the date as it would ruin their wedding and she and her future husband would not be able to get the deposit back.
However, she said both her partner and her parents labeled her “dramatic” because of it.
She said: “I’m not rescheduling my day as we’ve booked the venue since November 2022. Even my fiancee is on her side.”
She ended the post by asking, “Am I being dramatic?”
Social media users took to the comments section to disparage the bride, branding her “selfish”.
Social media users took to the comments section to blast the bride.
One person said: “The bride is obviously crazy – no one in the history of eternity has become pregnant on purpose just to disrupt someone else’s wedding.”
“But the parents are crazy too.” Postpone the wedding!? Don’t they realize the costs involved in changing a wedding date after non-refundable deposits have been paid and contracts signed? After guests have already bought plane tickets?
“If the sister gives birth on the wedding day, send the mother of the bride to help her and the father of the bride to walk the bride down the aisle.” “With live streaming and video calling, you don’t have to be physically present to support each other as a family.”
Another user commented, “I don’t know why she thinks her sister planned this but her sister should step back and just have a happy pregnancy.”
“At the same time, she shouldn’t delay her sister’s marriage.” Both are important events in life, and sometimes these things overlap. You can’t do anything about that.’
The Reddit user also shared comments on the original post, in which social media users begged her to “read the post again.”
Someone else said, “Bride: “She’s been trying for a while… I think she did that on purpose.” Um, duh! You knew she was trying to conceive from the start. What is the problem?!”
“Brides and her parents all need a reality check,” commented another user.
Another user added, “It’s ridiculous for parents to expect her to procrastinate, but she’s crazy to think her sister did it on purpose.”
“Get married on your date. You would be really naïve and self-absorbed if you didn’t know that something like this could happen. They knew they were trying to conceive. Did you send a memo to everyone saying you’re sorry but your life is on hold now because I’m getting married? “Sorry but life goes on even if you get married,” one person commented.
The Reddit user also shared comments from the original post.
Social media users asked her to read the post again.
“Wow, if I were you I’d read that again.” And if I were your fiancée, I’d probably reconsider my relationship with you. How dare anyone else live a life that isn’t about your marriage?’ said one person.
Another user wrote, “This is the most selfish thing I’ve read on this group.” You and your sister should be happy for each other. Big, life-changing events are coming up for both of you, and this is an exciting time. Just be happy for each other. ‘
And while the majority of users criticized the bride-to-be, there were a few people who agreed with her
And while the majority of users criticized the bride-to-be, there were a few people who agreed with her.
One person said, “I think the parents telling her to change her wedding day is inappropriate.”
“The pregnant sister needs to get out of the wedding and maybe be a guest if she can pull off the wedding.”
“The bride might just be overwhelmed or used to her sister being the golden child.”
Another commented, “Okay she’s too dramatic but!” I would be upset if my family forced me to cancel my already planned wedding. Hell no, sister can step down from her duties as matron of honor/bridesmaid.
“That’s the only sensible solution.” “Sister probably won’t be able to perform the duties anyway.”
“I wouldn’t put anything off.” “She could have taken a few months off from trying to conceive to avoid exactly that situation and she decided against it,” said another.
