    LOL I like your comment suemp. Fearless Leader I"m glad you find the fact that someone refuses to have some poor boy at their wedding simply because they have a mental disability funny.

    And Im sorry there is a big difference between a no kids wedding, and dis allowing a disabled adult to a wedding. I have 2 kids. One is a handful as he is autistic (and other co morbid dxs) and I have a n.t child. If someone dared invite my nt child to an event but told me my asd child was not invited as he MIGHT do x,y or z I'd be livid. Hopefully something you will never have to encounter F.L

The sister did a perfect job of being bridesmaid and had the time of her life, and I'm sure her parents were very proud of the fact their daughter included both of her sisters in her wedding party and didn't exclude one sister, simply because she has a disability and 'looks different'.

    Family is family (except when they abusive, drunks or just plain crackpots as a few others have mentioned that were excluded from family outings) and having a disability is absolutely no reason to exclude them.

    when i got married i had my little sister as a bridesmaid she has downs as well and is capable of a tanty but she was amazing!


    It seems like the bride doesn't no very much about him and has just jumped to the whole he WILL do this and ruin my day.. personally if it was my son i would say to her that maybe she should come and see him and get to know him a bit more before jumping to such a very nasty decisions. And as for the husband to be.. if he was part of my family i would have hoped he would have stood up to her and her family a bit more.

    I really think she needs to grow up and relise that YES he does have a disability but he is a man first. he just happens to have a disability as we..

    I personally would never!!!! talk to her after that.

    Default Spinoff from 'no kids at weddings'

    This made me cry, how awful, disrespectful and just plain nasty. I'm sorry but if I was in this situation I'd be very very angry and probably have nothing else to do with those family members. It goes to show what sort of character they have and I wouldn't want to have anything to do with people like that. So very upsetting

    How selfish and nasty of the bridezilla. Really, that is one of the most disgraceful horror bride stories I've ever heard.

    I would be telling the bride to jam her invite where the sun doesn't shine and wishing her exactly what she deserves on her special day.

    Wow, where did I say the OP's story was funny? I find it repulsive as anyone else here, but i think you are a hypocrite if you find this situation abhorrent, but one child being excluded everyone can understand.

    I agree with Fearless, I don't really see much difference between this case and refusing to have kids at the wedding. One is discrimination against a disability bc the bride (I'm suspecting) is worried about outbursts or noise from him. The other is ageism, bc the bride is worried about outbursts and noise.

    To me the excuses why they aren't the same are just semantics imo

    If it were ONE child I'd have a problem.. if it were just no children than fair enough. I personally wouldn't attend if a Wedding said no children anyway.
