The story in detail
A little background
The bride told OP not to bring her baby to the wedding, as he was already walking
Unfortunately, it was already too late for OP to change her plans, especially since she couldn’t afford a babysitter on short notice
3 hours into the wedding, the bride’s mother asked OP to leave with her baby. Ever since, their friendship has not been the same
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
“A 8 month old is still a baby in my opinion. Unless the other babies around your kid's age were excluded or made to leave.”
A little add-on from OP
“The invite said babies were allowed. It didn’t say ‘only babies that can’t walk’…”
“NTA. With only 2 weeks notice it’s not reasonable of your friend to make that request.“
“Just because baby advanced in walking sooner doesn't make it not a baby.“
“ It wasn’t fair for her to move the goalposts 2 weeks before the wedding when you couldn’t get a refund.”
In the Reddit community, an outpouring of support surrounds OP. Many agreed that the friend's actions were not just rude but completely wrong.
The bride was unjust in her last-minute change of plans, and while full reimbursement as an apology might have salvaged some dignity, the abrupt un-invitation was undeniably rude.
We do hope she takes steps to mend the bridge that was unfortunately burnt in this tale.
