The woman told her story Reddit, complaining that she was arguing with her family about the proposed plus-one.
Her sister, she said, “is upset that I would even think about taking my boyfriend, because it will steal her thunder” – and their mother takes the bride’s side and tells the Redditor that she is “dishonest” is.

The woman said her boyfriend is “famous.” While not on Brad Pitt level, he’s “ someone my family would recognize in the small town, ” similar to a country singer.
They live in a big city and have a relationship for about eight months, but things have gotten serious because they quarantine together.
“So my sister sends out RSVPs for her wedding (that’s about, months away, and we don’t even know if it’s delayed because of corona).” she wrote.
In their big city, “no one cares or bother him much” – but, she admitted, “I understand that every excitement in a small city is … exciting?”
She explained, “Actually, my sister is upset that I would even think about taking my boyfriend, because it’s going to steal her thunder.
“Part of me gets it, but part of me is just annoyed. She and my parents have already met him, he has been to our hometown before. And of course our cousins and family didn’t meet him. And yes, it would be the first big family gathering he’s part of.
“The conversation then turned into an argument about how famous he is or not (they pretend to bring Justin Bieber home), and even if I … I don’t think famous people should be dating …..? ‘
Even her mother sided with the sister, calling the woman “dishonest.”
Other redditors joined quickly, with the most apparent agreement that no one here was strictly wrong.
“You have every right to have your boyfriend with you at the wedding, no matter how” famous “or not,” wrote one. “At the same time, a wedding day is all about the couple (especially the bride), and if there is even a slight chance that his presence will cause excitement, it makes sense that she wants to avoid being left by a guest.”
“It’s her wedding, she can determine the invitation list. I think it’s confused that she wouldn’t let him come, but it’s her choice, ‘wrote another, telling the Redditor that she has every right to be angry, too.
Several offered a useful solution, suggesting that the wife and her friend come to visit a large family before the wedding, where everyone can meet him on a day that is not about the bride and groom.
She agreed it would be a good way to “get rid of people’s excitement” and planned to discuss it with her sister. ‘
And, she added, she still plans to go to the wedding whether her boyfriend can come or not.
“But when I read through these comments, I feel validated to go and still be upset about it,” she said.
She also added that several people who tried to guess the famous friend’s identity were unsuccessful.
