This bride went viral after kicking out a couple who brought kids to her ‘child-free wedding’
There’s a rather good thing on Reddit called ‘Am I The Asshole?’ in which people explain a real life situation that happened to them and then ask, well, ‘Am I The Asshole?’
Or, ‘Arsehole’, if you prefer.
Anyway, this bride went viral after she asked that very question when a couple brought along their toddler and baby to her wedding even though they had made very clear it was a child free event.
Here’s how she explained it on Reddit … and it’s quite the tale.
Now most people on Reddit agreed with her that she was definitely not the asshole, with many of the thousands of comments it generated going something like this.
Twitter on the other hand – as Twitter tends to be – was a little bit more divided.
I understand the wedding is about the bride and groom but if you don't want kids there just don't invite the parents. ♀️ Some people might not trust a sitter.

I don't understand the no-kids thing. saying "no kids" is akin to saying "no old people". We're all in different stages of life and its good to embrace them all. I assume the bride was a kid once and she probably went to a wedding or two.

Bringing your children to an Adults only event, especially a wedding is NEVER OK! If you can’t find a babysitter you send regrets, stay home, AND SEND A GIFT … where are people’s manners?

Sometimes weddings are kid-free because the venue explicitly does not want them there for safety and liability reasons. The couple who brought the kid could be resulting in the bride and groom getting stuck with a huge extra bill.

It boggles my mind that everyone isn’t on the side of the bride. Weddings are literally a celebration of the bride and groom. Whatever makes them happy is what should be. And if that means kid free, honor their wishes or stay home.

We’re with the bride – thanks for asking – but we wouldn’t have have had the courage to make it child free in the first place (no matter how much we wanted to – got to make those savings somehow).
Except, well, weddings aren’t the same without a few little ‘uns running around, right?
