If you’re married and planned a traditional wedding, did you ever have someone try and take over a role at your wedding that you had already reserved for someone else?

One woman is dealing with drama between her and her fiancé’s family after turning down her father-in-law’s request to walk her down the aisle, as she had already reserved that role for her sister.

She’s 25 and getting ready to marry her 26-year-old fiancé. Unfortunately, the two of them are dealing with some tension between them and his family.

When thinking about who would walk her down the aisle, she knew she wanted the role to go to her older sister right away.

“She raised me and our siblings,” she explained.

“She’s the oldest and [was forced to parent] when she was way too young. She was our savior [and] she was our everything. I love her more than I can express. She gave up her childhood and young adult life for us and did an awesome job for a kid. It changed our relationship forever. We will never have a typical sibling relationship, and I respect her the way I would respect my parents.”

Because of how her sister sacrificed her life for her and their siblings, she takes any opportunity to honor her sister and give her the credit she deserves. She knew that having her sister walk her down the aisle would be an extremely special moment for both of them.

Her fiancé’s parents were aware she wanted her sister to walk her down the aisle, but a few months ago, her future father-in-law told her he’d like to do it. She kindly reminded her fiancé’s dad that while she appreciated his offer, she wanted her sister to do it for several reasons.

Her fiancé backed her up and was very understanding. However, her future in-laws have taken this ‘rejection’ quite seriously and are offended.
