Weddings are stressful for everyone involved. It's all about bringing two families together, and there's going to be a lot of difference in opinion. However, this story is about the differences within a family for their wedding. One 14-year-old girl shared on Reddit about how she was uninvited from her parents' wedding. Apparently, the girl's parents had her when they were both teenagers. They did everything they could to raise her and give her the life she deserves. Now, after years, her parents, 30-year-old mom, and 31-year-old dad have decided to finally get married.

The teen revealed how she was a part of the wedding by giving her parents inputs and suggestions. She was just as excited as her parents about the wedding, which explains why she was super disappointed when her parents told her that she couldn't be a part of the wedding. She wrote: My (14F) parents (30F and 31M) had me when they were teenagers. There were a lot of sacrifices on their behalf, but we have a rather comfortable life nowadays and they are both good parents. They have been saving for quite a while and they finally want to have their dream wedding. My mom has been planning this wedding for years and she talked about it with me a lot, asking for my suggestions.

I'd say I helped plan the wedding with how much we've talked about it and the amount of suggestions I made she incorporated. Then, she was told that she couldn't be a part of the wedding. A few days ago, my parents told me they decided to have a "no kids" wedding, so no one under 21 would come. I felt hurt at first, but they said they wanted to party like the wedding they had wanted to have before they turned 18, and I thought it was fair. She was actually fine with this because she understood that her parents wanted to have a day to themselves. Things took a turn for the worse after they told her she'd have to babysit, too.

Today, they told me that they plan to have my four cousins (2, 5, 7 and 8M) stay with me at our house for the whole day so my three aunts can come and I wouldn't be alone. I said I didn't want to be a babysitter after I was pretty much excluded from a wedding I helped plan, and it was my parents' wedding I was being excluded from. When she said no, her mom reportedly called her an ungrateful bitch. My [mom] called me an ungrateful bitch and said it would be my way of contributing to the wedding, and it will be ruined if I don't accept it. My father talked to me later about it and said it was just a day, it's the least I could do to them after all they sacrificed for me in their youth

Redditors were quick to jump to the conclusion that this is not alright and she is not in the wrong here. What do you think?
