Mother-In-Law Bans Bride’s Disabled Father From Attending Wedding Because He Might “Traumatize” Guests
In the days leading up to the wedding, the only thing a bride would imagine is to be surrounded by her loved ones and with them documenting the memories of her big day. But for this soon-to-be bride, things are not as perfect as she dreamed.
The 27-year-old was wrapped up in the joy of planning for her approaching wedding, where she would finally tie the knot with an ‘amazing guy’, according to The Sun
But preparations turned sour after her boyfriend’s mum suggested banning her dad from the wedding, as she fears his ‘serious disfigurement’ might scare guests.
Posting her shocking situation to Facebook, the bride-to-be explained her dad had been in an accident when she was younger, leaving him disabled.
She wrote: “When I was a little girl, my dad was involved in a really bad accident and was burned over a large portion of his body.
“He lost part of one limb and has some serious disfigurement.
“He has been a great dad and I never think about it.”
But it seems her future in-law had given it some serious thought, and phoned her up with the cruel suggestion.
The woman continued: “A few weeks ago, my fiancé started acting strange when we talked about the wedding.
“Then his mom called me out of the blue and told me that she didn’t think my dad should come to the wedding.
“She thinks that he will upset the guests and ‘traumatise’ any children who might be there.
“She is suggesting that we have a private family ceremony before the big blowout.”
Unsurprising she was distraught, and confided in her mother.
She added: “I got upset and my mom asked why.
“When I told her, she said that she and my dad understand, which only makes me feel worse.
“Maybe my future MIL [mother-in-law] had a point, but I would really rather disinvite her than my dad.”
This awful story was posted to a wedding shaming group on Facebook, where people have been commenting to say how awful the mother-in-law is to suggest that the bride’s own dad shouldn’t attend her wedding.
Most people agreed with the bride that the mother-in-law should get the boot instead of her dad.
One person said: ‘That is the most f***ed up thing I’ve ever read, I would throw the man and his whole family away’. Another wrote ‘run because she’s a monster’.
Another user suggested the fiancé should’ve spoken up.
The user said: ‘The fact that your fiancé didn’t immediately tell his mum where to go lest her be uninvited would tell me I was marrying into the wrong family tbh’. [sic]
One woman shared her own story in regards to her dad, who sadly passed.
She wrote: ‘I lost my father 12 years ago.
‘I still dread my wedding day because he won’t be there to walk me down.
‘F*** your MIL and have your father walk you down. I would give ANYTHING to have him there.
‘Hell, I’d have your dad walk me down if I knew who you are.’
It doesn’t matter if he looks different from others, if he’s in a wheelchair, or is differently-abled in any other way. Nobody should take that precious moment away from a father and his daughter at her wedding.
The following unconventional dance was one that was shared between another woman and her father, who had an illness that put him in a wheelchair. But none of that mattered. All that mattered was that they both shared this beautiful moment together as she started a new chapter.
