    Default Spinoff from 'no kids at weddings'

    Disgraceful!

    I have a cousin who is also my godson. He is 23 and has severe autism, he has never been excluded from family events - he actually probably went to more than other cousins as we all understand its difficult for his parents to leave him with someone.

    Its terrible to hear of someone excluding their own family based on disability

    He isn't a child, he is an adult, and I think it is disgusting what this couple is doing. FFS it gets me angry how stupid people can be about 'their big day'. Its like some people lost focus of what a wedding is actually about... So sad.

    I'd be extremely offended and wouldn't go.

    I had to go back and read your OP, as I thought you said no children under 12 would be there, but I misread.

    If it was that, I could understand. Having a sister who is physically an adult but mentally still a child, I would be understanding of why, if she said "no young children at all" she would include her DF's cousin in it. HOWEVER, since she hasn't said "no young children", I'd be absolutely and utterly furious.
    I hope the mother gives her a piece of her mind over her ridiculous bridezilla attitude. - -;

    Oh goodness, I misread too - I thought he was 22 months!

    I am just so disgusted. I hope for his sake he isn't aware of the situation.

    Ooops I misread it too! Not 22 months... 22 years! Sorry... But whatever age it doesn't matter, still terrible!

    That is absolutely disgusting and I wouldn't go. I'd make it very clear as to WHY I wasn't going to. And hope that as many guests found out as possible. The bride sounds like a complete dragon and doesn't deserve to have his family there to celebrate 'her' day if she's excluding parts of it!

    How incredibly rude and discriminatory.

    If I were your neighbour I would boycott the wedding. No-one (even a hoighty toighty bride) makes my boy feel like a second class citizen.

    Imagine what sort of day the bride and groom would have if they just relaxed and welcomed everyone with open arms.
    Yep my first sentence was going tp be the same.

    B!sh bridezilla, gtfo i am SURE if he caused a 'problem' his parent / s or caregiver would remove him

    What a nasty piece of work the bride is - excluding a beloved member of her fiance's family just because he is disabled? Inexcusable.
    I'd be either writing them a letter to decline or sitting down with the couple & explaining that by excluding the cousin they have offended his parents severely.
    for your neighbour, what a horrible thing to happen.

    I had my autistic step cousin at my wedding and aside from the fact he was there all day (pre wedding as well) due to his dad taking the photos. I didnt even notice him realy as I was to involved in everything else. He is one that makes lots of sounds/rocks and things like that. But he is family and I wouldnt even consider not having him there
