Weddings used to be deeply personal events before they became industrialized soirees that cost literally tens of thousands of dollars and also became some kind of competition to see who can use the most Pinterest pins.
All that aside, when you invite guests to an event, it is generally accepted that one should take societal norms into consideration. Norms like sleeping.
You can see the dilemma for this bride-to-be, who says that watching the sun rise is a tradition for her and her fiancee. Frankly, that’s cute!
But a 5:30 A.M. wedding? Less cute.
She wants to spend their wedding celebration with her friends and family and her special daybreak tradition…but some of her guests are less than enthused at being asked to be up and wedding-ready before daybreak.
So, the bride took to Reddit’s Am I The A**hole subreddit to find out whether she was being unreasonable, or whether her guests were just jerks looking to ruin the romance.
Most people weren’t really ready to call her TA (The A**hole), though they did have some suggestions for tweaking her plans just a bit to make everyone a bit happier.
Others thought ESH (Everyone Sucks Here), her for asking and them for refusing her request.
And still others were ready to defend the Your Wedding, Your Rules philosophy to the death.
What do you think? I kind of agree that maybe a private sunrise ceremony could be the best option, or maybe just invite people but make it clear you won’t be mad if they choose not to show up so early.
