‘Long story short, I just found out that one of my bridesmaids will be 5-6 months pregnant on my wedding day,’ the bride wrote. ‘This bridesmaid was also planning my super secret bachelorette party that I know no details of, but I’m assuming involved drinking that will probably either be changed or cancelled. ‘Maybe I’m just thinking the worst here. But personally I think it’s wrong to get pregnant when you’re part of the bridal party and not tell the bride…’
The response was pretty overwhelming: Yes, the bride was being selfish. At least she was self-aware enough to ask, right?
‘It’s not wrong to get pregnant if you’re going to be in a bridal party,’ wrote one Redditor. ‘You can’t ask someone to put their life on hold for your wedding. You are being selfish.
As for your bachelorette party…that just means she won’t be able to drink. I’m sure you can still have the party you want.’
Another responded: ‘Very selfish. I will be a bridesmaid this coming summer and one of my fellow bridesmaids is pregnant and is due just a few weeks after the wedding.
‘The bride is nothing but happy for her. Even making sure she will have a chair for her to sit in during the ceremony just in case she needs a rest.
‘Your friend is there for you and supporting you. You need to be there for her too.’ So, what do we think? Is the bride being selfish?
