A concerned sister posted on Reddit recently asking if she was in the wrong for asking her twin sister to remove her from her wedding party.
Bride or Bridezilla?
The original poster, Carrie, has a twin sister, Emily. Emily is described as a “textbook narcissist” and is getting married in May 2024.
Dreading the Wedding
Carrie dreads it when she thinks about serving as her maid of honor because of her sister’s constant threat of demotion and removal from the wedding.
A Difficult Relationship Since Childhood
Growing up with a narcissist twin has been a constant battle for Carrie.
Trying to Control Her Sister
Their relationship has always been tense because Emily holds grudges and constantly tries to control every aspect of Carrie’s life.
Trying to Make Peace
Despite Carrie’s best efforts to make peace, Emily remains hostile and dismissive, leaving Carrie feeling drained and exhausted.
A Tense Lunch
One day the sisters went to lunch, and the atmosphere during the meal was tense as they discussed wedding plans.
An Argument Ensues
A harmless question about the maid of honour’s dress quickly escalated into a storm of wrath.
Throwing Accusations Around
Carrie was accused of making everything about her and Emily made some irrational accusations.
Walking On Eggshells
Carrie felt she was constantly walking on eggshells, afraid of setting her sister off.
Adding Fuel to the Fire
The discussion later in the day shifted to the accommodation options for overnight guests.
Their mother’s preference for an Airbnb was met with Carrie joking about camping in a pop-up tent, but it only fueled Emily’s anger.
Emily claimed this had been a repeated conversation with her fiancé and accused Carrie of negativity and having an attitude.
The mere mention of her wedding or bachelorette party triggered Emily’s rage, leaving Carrie feeling attacked and insignificant.
Things Start to Boil Over
The drive back to her sister’s apartment only worsened the situation, as Emily continued her rampage for ten long minutes.
Trapped in the Car
Trapped in the car, Carrie had to endure the weight of her accusations and insults.
Reaching Boiling Point
Upon arrival, her sister’s anger reached boiling point as Emily accused Carrie of not caring about her or wanting her in her life
Eloping to Get Married
Carrie asked Emily if she would still be part of the wedding. Emily responded and said she would be eloping and that if her sister wanted to buy a plane ticket, she could come.
A Furious Reaction
Carrie said she wouldn’t go.
This infuriated Emily further, and she continued to throw out insults and accusations.
Being Pushed to Your Limits
Carrie was at her wit’s end, unable to endure her sister’s verbal assaults any longer. She gathered her belongings and walked out.
Carrie Uninvites Herself to the Wedding by Text
Carrie removed herself from her sister’s wedding by sending a text message.
The thought of being a part of her sister’s wedding and serving as her maid of honour filled her with dread, and she was relieved to have decided to step away.
A Slap in the Face
Carrie has always tried to be there for her sister, but Emily constantly belittles and insults her.
It was a slap in the face to be treated this way.
Enough Is Enough
She is tired of being used as Emily’s sounding board for her anger and frustration and refuses to be mistreated.
Should She Feel Guilty for Not Being at the Wedding?
Carrie stood by her decision but asked the Reddit community if she was the one in the wrong.
What Reddit Had to Say
The Reddit comments were overwhelmingly in favor of Carrie.
Most of them couldn’t believe her sister would treat her so badly, but some wondered if this story was being overdramatized.
One Reddit user said, “You dodged a bullet. That wedding is going to be a nightmare.”
Another replied to that, saying, “A bullet? Sounds like Carrie dodged a nuke!”
What do you think? Who is the narcissist here? Should the sisters put aside their differences for this special day? Would you put up with someone acting like this?
