Mother-In-Law Bans Bride's Disabled Father From Attending Wedding Because He Might "Traumatize" Guests

For the bride-to-be, her father's physical differences didn't define him. He was and always will be one of the most important men in her life.

In the days that lead up to a wedding, the only thing a bride will imagine is being surrounded by her loved ones and making memories with them on her big day. But for this bride-to-be, things weren't as perfect as she dreamed it to be. The 27-year-old was wrapped up in the joy of planning for her approaching wedding, where she would finally tie the knot with an ‘amazing guy’, according to The Sun. However, her soon to be mother-in-law suggested something that crushed her heart. Because it would mean not having her dear father beside her as she walked down the aisle.

The distraught woman wrote on Facebook, “When I was a little girl, my dad was involved in a really bad accident and was burned over a large portion of his body. He lost part of one limb and has some serious disfigurement." For her, she never thought of her father's physical conditions all her life. All she knew was that he was one of the most important men in her life and nothing else mattered. She continued to say, “He has been a great dad and I never think about it.”

The air between her and her fiancé started becoming slightly tense. “A few weeks ago, my fiancé started acting strange when we talked about the wedding," she wrote. "Then his mom called me out of the blue and told me that she didn’t think my dad should come to the wedding." Hearing those words would have been devastating for her.

Fathers, too, always imagine the best for their daughters. And the experience of walking beside their princess, hand-in-hand towards the altar is something that fathers often think of as they watch them grow up over the years. However, this woman's mother-in-law was trying to take that experience away from both of them.

“She thinks that he will upset the guests and 'traumatise' any children who might be there," wrote the bride-to-be. “She is suggesting that we have a private family ceremony before the big blowout.” Not knowing what to do, she approached her mother and told her what was going on. But when she saw how understanding her parents were, it only made her feel worse.
