Reddit is never short of people looking for advice or someone to vindicate them. One user of the platform, a woman took to it to share her tale of woe, which sparked off a debate.

While trying to wrap her head around the fact that her marriage will not hold, the woman got a surprise. She found out that her sister was planning to "Take over" her wedding.

The woman noted that she paid for about 60% of the wedding expenses, her parents covered the rest, and now, her sister wants to use everything. The only difference would be,

The woman had planned to cancel everything, but her sister already informed relatives and friends that she would get married in her place. The woman feels ambushed because she was the last to find out her sister's plan.

She feels like going ahead to cancel everything, but wonders if that makes her the bad guy. The woman also firmly believes that her sister won't pay back the expenses.

One group thought that the young woman should not have taken her grievance to the family.

The argument that followed had people with different opinions on what the woman should do. One person pointed out that the lady's family is insensitive for hijacking her wedding.

Another argued that maybe the sister and the family thought they were helping the woman salvage an already ruined day. One person noted,

"… The financial move is to threaten cancellation unless [your] sister covers all the expenses or takes all the charges onto her credit card."

The woman's issue with her sister lingers, but she's not the only one who has had a problematic wedding. In the case of one 22-year-old Reddit user, she turned her family against her step-sister, who didn't make her a bridesmaid at her wedding.

Another group thought the sister should have included the young lady. A third group believed the sister was free to do whatever she wanted at her wedding.

Weddings are a sensitive period for families and should be handled with care. Thus, while Reddit debates have different opinions and are sometimes helpful, the woman would ultimately do what's best for her, and by extension, her family.
