This fresh tale of family drama comes from Reddit. A woman wanted to know if she was in the wrong for not inviting her aunt to her wedding and insisting that security escort her off the property if she tried to attend.
How It All Started
This bride-to-be, Cayla, is a 30-year-old female who is getting married in June.
She sent invitations to all of her family except for her aunt, who Cayla has a complicated history with.
They Used to Be Close
When Cayla was younger, she was close with her aunt.
She was the “crazy unpredictable aunt” who let the kids buy and do anything they wanted. But as Cayla got older, she realized that her aunt probably shouldn’t have been trusted with them in her care.
Her aunt would do anything for attention, was a compulsive liar, and had a history of doing crazy things.
Then, in high school, she kidnapped Cayla in the disguise of a California weekend trip and held her for ransom against her parents.
Kicked Out on the Street
After giving her a second chance in college, her aunt kicked Cayla out onto the street, leaving her homeless for over a month in a state where she had no family besides her aunt to turn to for help.
That was the last straw for Cayla.
A Restraining Order
Since then, her aunt has tried her behavior on the other cousins, leading to several incidents.
One of Cayla’s uncles even got a restraining order against the aunt, and she is not allowed near any of his children.
She Wanted an Invitation to the Wedding
So, it was no surprise recently when this aunt called Cayla’s mother, trying to get an invite to the wedding.
Luckily, her mother informed her that she would have to talk to Cayla directly.
Won’t Take No for an Answer
But she didn’t take no for an answer.
She tried to guilt-trip Cayla’s parents into inviting her by saying they were paying for the wedding, but they quickly shut that down.
Guilt Tripping to Get in
Her parents are not paying for the wedding; Cayla and her fiancé are footing the bill themselves! The aunt was shocked and thought her relationship with Cayla’s parents would get her an invitation.
Cayla’s dad warned her that this aunt would try to show up anyway and would act like they invited her!
Not on Cayla’s Watch!
But our bride is ready for her.
She told her dad that if the aunt did show up, security would promptly escort her off the property. Her husband-to-be supports her decision, and her uncle, with a restraining order against the aunt, will also be at the wedding.
Legally, the aunt cannot be near him or his children.
But not everyone in Cayla’s family agreed with her decision.
Her dad thought she should take the high ground and let her aunt do her thing, but she didn’t want an unwanted guest ruining her day.
She even questioned her own boundaries after the argument with her dad.
However, Cayla has a supportive friend group who have offered to help chaperone, escort, or entertain some of the guests they were concerned about, including her aunt.
Interestingly, Cayla has already discussed similar worries with their wedding coordinators about other guests causing drama. In addition to her aunt, Cayla and her fiancé are worried about other potentially drama-causing guests.
Her husband’s mother and stepmother don’t get along because the stepmother is the woman her husband’s dad left her for, leading to his mom making some not-so-great comments. One of Cayla’s uncles also doesn’t get along with one of her cousins and has a history of fighting.
Reassurance From the Coordinators
The coordinators assured them they would handle any problems and have people escorted out if necessary.
Now with the aunt as an extra worry, they’ll undoubtedly have their hands full.
Friends Come to the Rescue
To prevent any further drama, Cayla’s supportive friend group has offered to help chaperone, escort, or entertain some of the guests they are concerned about.
They might also ask them to keep an eye out for the aunt.
Cayla’s family gives second chances, and this has been their strength and their downfall. They try to see the good in everyone, but unfortunately, they get mixed up with the wrong people who take advantage of their kindness and forgiveness.
However, Cayla has learned the hard way that some people don’t deserve second chances. She’s trying to set more boundaries but acknowledges that she’s still a work in progress.
She asked Reddit if she was in the wrong.
She Sounds DANGEROUS!
Redditors sided with her.
One user said, “This woman legitimately sounds DANGEROUS. And maybe I don’t know the details of how a restraining order works, but, if the uncle is present, she CANNOT be without being in violation of the order, right?”
