Her Brother Only Invited Her to a Live-Stream of His Wedding, Not the Real Thing, but Her Family Said She Was Lucky to Be Involved at All

A woman recently asked for some advice because her brother invited her to his ‘overflow’ wedding rather than the actual ceremony. Here’s what happened.

They weren’t that close

A 23-year-old woman and her 30-year-old brother weren’t really that close. She thought it was probably to do with the age gap between them.

They got along fine

Even though they weren’t super close, the siblings got along. They didn’t argue or fight; they just had little in common.

They were planning their wedding

The woman’s brother and his 26-year-old fiancée had been planning their wedding for a year after dating for a long time.

Every plan the couple made seemed bigger than the last, and they really wanted to have a lavish wedding.

Money was the issue

The woman said, “They wanted to have this giant wedding with all of our family and hers plus friends, plus-ones, etc., but they really couldn’t afford it.”

They came up with a compromise

Eventually, after a lot of thinking, they came up with what seemed to be an ideal compromise. They would hold the wedding at a smaller, cheaper venue and only have 100 guests (the venue’s capacity).

There would be a second venue

To ensure everyone on their huge guest list could see the wedding, they would then hire a movie theater where the ceremony would be live-streamed.

That second venue was really an overflow venue, and anyone who didn’t make the cut to be in the room with the happy couple would be sent there. Everyone could then come together for the wedding reception.

The woman assumed that she would be given an invitation to the main event, but that wasn’t the case. She said, “Apparently, the bride’s list is the most important, so I was invited to the overflow wedding!”

He didn’t see the problem

When the woman confronted her brother about it at their father’s birthday party, he couldn’t see what the issue was. She said, “He told me that he needs to make her family happy and that I should understand.” Since they weren’t that close anyway, he didn’t think she’d mind.

It was the principle

The woman was shocked and told her brother it was the principle of it; she was his sister, so she could be at the venue to see her brother get married in person.

She said she wouldn’t go

When her brother wouldn’t back down, the woman said she wouldn’t attend the wedding. This caused an argument that turned into a real screaming match.

They told her she should be grateful

A number of family members later told the woman she was making a scene at the party and that she should just be grateful she was invited at all.

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong to be upset about only getting a spot at the overflow wedding, or should she be happy to get any invitation at all, considering she and her brother weren’t close?

The internet responded

One person said, “If there are 100 people in their lives who are more important to them than you, then they won’t miss you at the wedding.”

Another commented, “Unless you’re marrying the king of England, your marriage shouldn’t be televised.”
