Bride-to-be debating banning injured sister from her bridal party as her sling will 'ruin' photos

A bride-to-be has revealed how she is debating banning her injured sister out of her wedding party - as her sling will "ruin" the photos.

The 24-year-old began the Reddit post by explaining that her sister had been "playing spots her whole life" and just over three years ago, she found out she has a torn ligament in her elbow which would need surgery to repair.

She added that while she and her family tried to convince her sister to get the surgery, she refused - and continued to play sports, which "ultimately made the injury worse."

"Around 14 months ago, I got engaged to my boyfriend of 5 years. Almost immediately upon me asking my sister to be my maid of honour, she jumped into action on finally getting her elbow surgery," she continued. "Calling doctors, scheduling appointments, etc etc. My family and I were obviously glad that she was finally opting for the surgery considering how much worse things had gotten for her within the last year."

The bride-to-be explained that she thought her sister would schedule the surgery far enough away from the wedding that she wouldn't been a sling for the wedding.

"However, as soon as my fiancé and I settled on a date for our wedding, my sister scheduled her elbow surgery for exactly a week before. I’m getting married in 3 weeks," she said.

She added that while she wants her sister to be pain free and to finally have her surgery, there was "a selfish side to me".

"I don’t want her to be the maid of honour in my wedding because she’ll be wearing a sling in all of the photos and videos from the wedding," she said.

"Now, most of my family thinks that I’m a horrible person for even considering not letting my sister be part of the wedding party. I feel as though she could’ve waited after the wedding to get the surgery, considering she’s waited 3 years already, or had enough time to get the surgery in advance of the wedding."

Many of the other Reddit users were quick to brand her "selfish" for considering kicking her sister out of her bridal party.

"The presence of a sling in your photos bothers you more than the absence of your sister would," one person said. "This is some textbook asshole bridezilla behaviour."

"Putting photos before family is a horrible thing to do. They are just pictures," another person added. "Pictures that'll likely be in a box hardly ever seen. Selfish bridezilla much?"
