A bride is so furious with her stepfather after he demands that he be the one to walk her down the aisle instead of her birth father that she kicked him out of her wedding altogether.

Sharing her story on Reddit, the woman said she was never a huge fan of her stepfather Dave, after he married her mother when she was just eight, following an affair her mother had with him while she was was still married to her father.

After her parents split, the 23-year-old spent most of her time with her mother and wasn’t able to see her father as often as she would have liked, despite him being her “favourite person”.

When the bride-to-be’s stepfather asked her directly if he could be the one to walk her down the aisle, the woman said no, which infuriated Dave and her mother.

in the her postShe explained: “I’m marrying my fiancé. I never liked my stepfather Dave because there were several instances where my mother chose him over me and he manipulates people to be on his side.

“I haven’t been able to see my dad much since I was eight when my mom cheated on him with Dave. However, my father is still my favorite person and he has always been my escape from Dave’s toxicity.

“Anyway, Dave recently asked me if he could walk me down the aisle. He asked in front of the whole family (at a family dinner) so I’d most likely say yes, [but] I said ‘no because we don’t get along and if I wanted you to take me for a walk I would ask myself’.

“After dinner, he and my mother were mad at me for not taking care of him. But that’s not the main problem, it’s that he asks me at least twice a day and I always say no. When I was younger I would have given in, but now I won’t.”

When she got fed up with her stepdad constantly asking to be involved in the wedding, the wife snapped and completely uninvited him – leaving it to her mum to insist that if Dave didn’t attend, she wouldn’t go either would.

The woman added that she has already agreed to her birth father walking her down the aisle but is now unsure about inviting Dave back over so her mother can be there too.

She added: “I told him he wasn’t invited to the wedding and he got very angry. The only downside to this is that my mom loves him a lot more than he loves me so she told me that if Dave doesn’t go she won’t be at the wedding.

“My fiancé said if my mother kept choosing him over me then she shouldn’t be there either. I’ve told my friends about it and some think I’m right, but some others think I should stop being petty and rebellious – invite him over.

“My dad and I have a great relationship and he’s walking me down the aisle.”

Commenters on the Reddit post were firmly on the bride’s side, with many urging her to step on the gas and not invite her stepfather back after his “selfish” actions.

One person said: “This is your wedding, you don’t owe him anything and you have every right to choose who gets to walk you down the aisle. He’s the one being selfish and petty here. Also, your mom not siding with you or even doing the bare minimum to convince him of your choice is literally the worst thing she has done in this whole situation.

While another added: “You decide who walks you down the aisle and who is at your wedding. It’s not surprising that your mom takes your stepdad’s side, so you don’t have to be there to reconcile with both of them.”

And a third said: “Let them stay home and miss out on another big life event for their children. The people you love will show up.”
