Bride Gets Called Ableist After Disallowing Friend To Bring Their Guide Dog To The Wedding

There is a subreddit called AmItheAsshole (AITA) where people post about the situations they are in asking people if they the bad guy in the story or not. Recently, a bride posted in that subreddit asking if she’s the a*shole for not allowing her friend’s service dog at her wedding because she has severe allergies. People gave her some pretty darn good reasons why she wasn’t. In fact, they explained how she and her friend both are disabled as severe allergies also count as disabilities. It is quite interesting how this discussion turned out. Scroll down to read the whole thing.

A sticky situation here.

This is quite a difficult situation. The bride clearly has a solid reason for not allowing the dog to the wedding. After all, it’s her big day. She can’t ruin it by sleeping during the ceremony. Although we do understand the sentiments of the disabled friend, she’s furious and thinks her friend is being an ableist, but in the light of the situation considering one of the options laid out by the bride, it would be a wise decision for her end. The bride really wants her friend to attend her wedding. As she mentioned, it will be an intimate ceremony. That means not many people would be invited, only close friends and family. Since she’s on the close friends list, the bride would be extremely happy if her friend is there to celebrate her big day.

Your wedding day is meant to be enjoyed and celebrated. All friends and family should cooperate.
