In a now-deleted Reddit post, the bride-to-be shared how her sibling revealed their non-binary orientation after she asked them to be their bridesmaid.

The internet has become equivalent to a classroom as it offers so much to learn with each passing day and in the process, sometimes, conversations lead to debates. One such debate was sparked by a bride-to-be when she shared her feelings on the internet, admitting to being annoyed by her non-binary sibling who can’t decide if they want to dress feminine or masculine at her wedding.

The bride detailed her feelings on the ‘Am I The A**hole’ Reddit forum explaining that she had asked her sibling to be her bridesmaid before they came out as non-binary. The wedding is approaching in two months for which she had been planning for more than a year. But now, she is getting frustrated over her sibling’s indecisiveness over their outfit.

While sharing her thoughts, the bride-to-be wrote that she asked her sibling if they still “wanted to be a bridesmaid and they said they would rather be a brides-person, which is obviously not a problem.” Adding that her sibling “sometimes dressed feminine, sometimes masculine and others in-between the two,” she said she asked them if they wanted to wear a dress, suit or something else. To this, they replied saying they were confused at the moment and would get back to the bride once they made the decision.

Adding to this, the bride wrote that her wedding is on a budget but she is still paying for her bridesmaid’s dresses. Now, as the wedding approaches, she is getting upset that the sibling still hasn’t decided what they want to wear despite asking them multiple times. Bridesmaids’ dresses need to be ordered and pre-made as they may need minor adjustments, she explained.


Despite the bride telling her sibling about the need to book the outfits in advance, she states that her sibling told her they wouldn’t know until on the wedding day whether to dress more feminine or masculine. In such a case, they asked the bride to buy both outfits and return whatever they don’t wear, reports the Mirror.

The post has been now been removed from the platform after gathering almost 1,000 all comments from netizens who gave their suggestions.

One user advised telling her sibling that everyone in the wedding has to choose their outfits in advance, while a non-binary person argued that the sibling could feel dysphoria by picking the wrong outfit in advance. They further explained that outfits choice for non-binary people shifts day-to-day, depending on their feelings at the time.
