  • The internet has unleashed on a ‘selfish’ woman for stealing her sister’s spotlight
  • The woman said she got engaged the week before her sister Ann’s wedding
  • Ann requested she not talk about her engagement until after the wedding
  • She said she wants to use her sister’s event to discuss her own wedding plans
  • Redditors branded the woman ‘self-centred’ for making the wedding about her

A newly engaged woman has been slammed online after she asked if she was in the wrong for using her sister’s wedding to talk about her new engagement. 

In a post to Reddit the anonymous 33-year-old said her partner Eric proposed to her a week before her sister Ann and her soon-to-be husband Dean’s wedding and said she wants to use the event to talk about her own engagement, ring and wedding plans. 

Ann has accused her ‘self-centred’ sister of trying to ‘steal the spotlight’ and demanded she avoid the topic of her engagement until after the wedding when talking to friends and family.

The internet has unleashed on a ‘selfish’ woman who said she wants to use her sister’s wedding to talk all about her new engagement 

After the proposal, the woman said she sent a ‘mass text’ to friends and family and noticed everyone but Ann responded right away with their congratulations. 

‘She answered the next day with congratulations. She said she was busy putting together final arrangements for her wedding. Okay, no big deal,’ the woman wrote. 

After confirming she was arriving in town on Wednesday for the wedding on Saturday, Ann sent her a message asking her not to talk about her engagement. 

‘She said she’s spent over a year stressing over the wedding and hasn’t seen our family in that time, so she wants it to be about her and Dean,’ the post read. 

‘She asked that we wait until the day after to discuss my engagement,’ which the affianced sister said was ‘ridiculous’. 

Ann responded saying while it is expected that people will ask her about the new engagement, she is to change the subject back to her and Dean.

‘I haven’t seen our family (parents and older brother) in the same amount of time, and I want to use this time to talk about my engagement, my ring, and our own wedding plans. I’m excited and this is the only chance I’ll get to do it,’ the woman explained.

However, the disgruntled sister noted that Ann had not either had a chance to talk about her wedding as many of their family and friends live out of the state.

‘I want to show off my ring and talk about my wedding. She hasn’t had the chance to show everyone her ring in person, either, because our family is spread out, but I think we can do that together,’ she said. 

She told the bride-to-be that ‘not everything was about her’ and asked if she could help with her own wedding plans but the sisters continued to fight until other family members got involved. 

‘Our brother Luke texted me and told me I was being ridiculous because I’ve been married before. However, I was 20 and did it at the courthouse and we divorced soon after, so I don’t think that should matter,’ the miffed sibling said. 

‘I said Ann was being a bridezilla thinking everything is about her, but he said she has a right to want week of her wedding to be about her.’ 

The post attracted hundreds of comments most of which sided with Ann saying the sister was in the wrong for using the wedding to talk about herself and plan her own.

‘It’s not a problem that you got engaged before her wedding or that you want to talk about it, but the fact you think it’s okay to ‘use this time to talk to your family about the engagement’ is ridiculous,’ one user said. 

‘They did not spend all this money, and have people coming from all over the country to give you a free venue to talk about you and your engagement. You are absolutely insufferable,’ a second commented.   

‘If she wants lots of people around to discuss her engagement, she can throw and engagement party with all the ensuing costs, not freeload off her sister’s wedding!’ quipped a third.
