Family relationships can be tricky at the best of times. Add a bit of pre-wedding stress, a dash of thoughtlessness, and there’s an unfailing recipe for drama. One bride decided to send out an offensive invite to her brother and sister-in-law, including within it a 30-day dietary plan. Reddit users called her actions a whole new level of stupid.
A Horrendously Offensive Invite
The brother of the bride was shocked when his pregnant wife walked up to him, nearly in tears, handing him the wedding invite that his sister, the bride, sent them. Attached to the invitation was a strict, 30-day pre-wedding diet plan. This dietary plan was sent so that the guests could lose weight and look fit for the wedding. The brother was appalled by this invitation, especially seeing how much it had upset his wife who was pregnant and also allergic to many of the items on the list.
Who’s in the Wrong?
The upset man turned to Reddit to tell the story and ask the people if it was he or his sister, the bride, who was in the wrong. After reading the invitation, he called his sister to confront her about it. She, in turn, accused him of trying to ruin her big day and berated him for opposing her plan. Even their mother said the brother was overreacting and should support his sister. Apparently, those dietary plans were sent out to every invitee, not just them.
Reddit Users Shared Their Opinions
The brother told his sister that he thinks her invitation was disgraceful and that he threw it away. After reading his story, most Reddit users agreed that the invite was indeed offensive. One user said that to send such a thing at all was appalling, let alone to a pregnant woman. Many others agreed that it was a horrendous thing to send to anyone at all. Whoever came up with the idea of that invitation certainly stirred up a storm.
The Most Romantic Ways You Can Propose to Your Significant Other at Home
If you’ve found the person who makes you utterly and ridiculously happy and planned to propose to them during the springtime, then you may have found that your proposal plans have been thwarted. After all, you can’t take them to your favorite restaurant, you can’t head outside for a romantic picnic, and you can’t think up another elaborate plan that involves being out of the house and breaking lockdown rules. Thankfully, there are so many romantic ways to propose to your significant other in your own home.
Cook Their Favorite Meal
You can’t head out to their favorite restaurant, so why not bring their favorite restaurant to them? You could either find a recipe online that you could make yourself, or you could contact the restaurant and see if they’ll give you any pointers. Then, when they are full of delicious food, you can pop the question.
Host A Virtual Party
If you want your friends and family to witness the proposal, this could be the perfect time to host a virtual party where all of them are invited. You and your significant other could dress to the nines, you could pour out some delicious cocktails, and you could even blast the music before getting engaged in front of your loved ones.
Have An At-Home Picnic
If you’re lucky enough to have a yard, you could definitely use this to your advantage during your proposal. You could wait for the sun to start setting, cover your yard with fairy lights and candles, open a bottle of wine, and just enjoy each other’s company as the sun fades and the moon and the stars come out to play. Then, simply whip out the ring and ask the all-important question. It’ll be super romantic, we swear.
Just because we’re in lockdown doesn’t mean that you can’t propose to the love of your life, you know. These proposal ideas are incredibly romantic.
