A bride-to-be has sparked controversy after excluding her sister-in-law from her upcoming wedding because she was too good looking.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and generally not as important as you might think. A 2017 YouGov study conducted in 20 countries found that the vast majority of people put personality before good looks in a potential partner.
Beautiful or not, a woman who is about to get married has shown a completely negative side of her personality after uninviting her brother’s wife from their wedding.
The reason for the ban? She worries that her big day will be overshadowed by her sister-in-law’s good looks.
According to the groom’s newly-banned sister, their troubles go back a long way. The bride, who posted to Reddit under the name biryaniforbreakast, has been “always jealous” of her looks and has regularly “commented” on her looks.
On several occasions, she claimed to have even been heard loudly saying within earshot of her sister-in-law that “looks aren’t everything.” “I never acted on it as she seems to have low self esteem and I feel sorry for her,” she said.

While she could tolerate this behavior, things took a bad turn just a month before the wedding when the bride asked her not to come.
According to her sister-in-law, she told her: “I deserve to be the most beautiful person at my wedding and you’re going to spoil that for me. I want all eyes to be on me, not you.”
Despite promising to “skip makeup and wear a simple dress,” the soon-to-be married woman made it clear that she just “couldn’t be there.”
When she told her husband what she said, he got “angry” and called her, accusing her of being “cruel” for not inviting his wife. Unfortunately, that didn’t help, as the bride later texted her to chastise her for “snitching” and wanting to “flaunt” her good looks at the wedding.
But while the bride seems convinced of her sister-in-law’s bad intentions, most on social media thought exactly the opposite.
Sweetpotatopietime said the bride was “actually a bad person” for what she was trying to do. “Insecurity explains the crappy behavior but doesn’t excuse it,” wrote lettrythisagain30. “She’s an asshole because of her low self-esteem.”
Scarlettnightingale commented, “Her insecurities don’t give her the right to attack and mistreat you. If she allows her insecurities to push her to do so, she actually becomes a bad person.”
Meanwhile, Puzzleheaded_Order78 asked: “Why would you want to attend an event by someone who obviously doesn’t like you? Don’t even think about her.”
BigJaytx said, “Bridezilla needs to relax. What she did was incredibly cruel and childish,” while GoldenFrog14 added, “Being so jealous sounds like a horrible way to live.”
