A Reddit user shares a story of her father, who initially promised to pay for her wedding. However, he began a relationship with a woman who was very pro-vegan. As a result, the father’s promise to fund the wedding now adopted conditions.
Is She Being Extreme?
The original poster (OP) said she has nothing wrong with being vegan. However, OP says her father’s girlfriend judges everything she does.
For instance, OP cooked a chicken for dinner for her family and prepared an alternative dish for her father and his girlfriend. The girlfriend dug a hole in OP’s garden to give the bones a proper funeral.
What Are Her Father’s Conditions?
OP’s father said he would only pay for the wedding if it’s vegan. And it’s important to note that this condition is specifically just for the food.
OP’s father says that everything, including what the wedding guest wear to the wedding, must be vegan. So, for example, wedding guests are not allowed to wear leather, such as leather belts or leather shoes.
OP was okay with having vegan food at her wedding. But she wanted to refrain from enforcing these rules on her guests.

The Masses Weigh In
Reddit users say that this is OP’s wedding day. And her father and the girlfriend are making it about themselves and are basically uninviting themselves.

Regarding paying for the wedding, the Reddit community says OP doesn’t need her money. Instead, have a simple wedding OP and her fiance can afford to make 100% of the choices.
Did OP’s father choose his girlfriend over her? Is OP wrong for uninviting her father to the wedding for his strict conditions? Is there any hope for a compromise, or is the relationship too far gone?
