Terrible Sister Bribes Bride-to-Be With $10K to Be the Maid of Honor

Having multiple sisters can be a huge blessing for any girl…that is, until it’s time to pick your maid of honor. Then it can get awkward. What do you do when you have more than one sister? Some give it to the oldest, some have multiple maids of honor and some probably just go “eenie meanie minie moe.” But one bride has an even stickier situation: she was offered $10,000 by one of her sisters to coerce her to give the MOH role to her rather than their younger sister. Yikes.

The anonymous bride did what she felt she had to: she went to Reddit. In a Reddit thread, posted under the username Richbiche, she shared the drama in hopes that someone could help her out. Apparently the bride-to-be has two sisters: a 20-year-old younger sister that she is close with, and a 31-year-old older sister she is not. In fact, she and her younger sister haven’t gotten along with the oldest since their childhood. Naturally the bride chose her younger sibling to be the bridesmaid, but the older one decided to step in.

Since it’s been posted, the thread has gotten tons of comments with many different pieces of advice. Many believe Richbiche should reject the offer entirely. Others believe she should be more crafty about it, either by getting the money in advance and still keeping the original MOH, or by splitting the cash with the younger sister. One even joked about offering her $20K to be her maid of honor, despite not having a dress to fit his dad bod. The bride clarified the whole situation more in another comment:

My older sister Mary was always daddy’s little girl and she grew up cruel, selfish, and conceited just like him. My little sister and I have never been close with her or our father but we’ve always been there for each other.
When my father passed last year he left Mary the bulk of his estate. Mary is flashing about town with the cash while my sister and I have been struggling to help our ailing mother get by. Mary visits our mom once in awhile and spends her time there making the kind of cruel comments our father made and texting. I really don’t like her but she mostly ignored me until now.
My younger sister Anne has always been the great beauty of the three of us and my older sister has always reserved the best of her vitriol for Anne. I know showing up Anne is probably the only reason Mary wants to be my maid of honor.

Mary doesn’t sound that pleasant to be around, TBH. Richbiche also commented that the total cost of their wedding reception is $100, consisting of a potluck in the park. In fact, she wrote that they wouldn’t even be using the bribe money for the wedding, since they’ve already planned cheaply. Which further emphasizes how much they could really use the money.

Well, I’m super glad I only have one sister. What would you do in this situation? Comment below!
