Mother Is Furious After Finding out Her 16-Year-Old Son Was Uninvited to Her Brothers Wedding – Now She Refuses to Go Too

A woman recently refused to attend her little brother’s wedding after discovering that her 16-year-old son was mistakenly invited. The young man wasn’t actually allowed to go. Here’s what the unhappy mom had to say about it.

There Was A Family Wedding Planned

The woman’s younger brother and sister-in-law were planning their wedding for the following year. In February, they sent out RSVPs, including “tickets” to the wedding, the dress code, and a note informing attendees that it would be a child-free event, among other formalities.

“Not my wedding, not my rules to make, plus I don’t have “children,” my only kid is 16 years old, and I am a single mom, so the whole idea of going to the wedding to enjoy a fun night to myself without kids is not something new nor is it something I’ve had to worry about for a while.”

The Invitation Included Their Teenage Nephew

The problem arose when the invitation came with two tickets, and the woman assumed her teenage son was also invited since he wasn’t exactly a child. 

However, they later found out that the “no children” rule applied to anyone under 18. 

The Couple Made A Mistake

During a family dinner, her son mentioned his excitement about the upcoming wedding, and both the brother and sister-in-law seemed surprised.

The mother continued, “His assumption that he was attending led to questions and the couple finding out they had accidentally sent out two tickets, which then led to an awkward conversation and my son getting uninvited in front of all the people present.”

The Woman Tried To Understand

The woman tried hard to understand her brother and sister-in-law’s perspective, knowing that it was their wedding and not hers. However, she couldn’t move past the way they had handled the situation and how they made her son feel.

Her son had a close relationship with her brother, as his biological father had never been present in his life, and both the woman and her son were hurt by the exclusion.

Consequently, she decided not to attend the wedding, a decision that others in her family and social circle labeled as immature, petty, and overly harsh.

“Am I confused and a little upset my son isn’t invited to the wedding? Yes, sure. Is that the reason I am debating on not going? NO! My decision to not go is based entirely on their attitude and my son’s current feelings,” the boy’s mother explained.

She vowed to stand by her son and to honor his feelings of exclusion, acknowledging that her choice might change in the future if the situation were resolved.

Was Her Decision Reasonable?

The woman sought advice online, asking if her stance on the matter was justified or if she was being unreasonable, especially as many wedding-related stories often involved child-free events and entitlement.

People Responded

One internet user commented, “There’s a saying I know that pertains to this – it’s an invitation, not a summons. If you put stipulations on an invitation (no kids, dress code, destination party/wedding, etc.), then you need to expect that some people will turn it down.”

Another responded, “Personally, I’m not a fan of weddings. You spend most of the time waiting or being herded around like cattle or making awkward chitchat. If you want people to share the experience with you, at least make them feel welcome. Don’t just impose rules, and don’t get cross if people don’t come.”
