Weddings are celebrations of a huge commitment to unconditional love. It’s normal for the bride and groom to want everything to go as smoothly as possible and for their wedding to be perfect. More couples are choosing for child-free weddings to keep things moving smoothly and to give a more sophisticated and mature environment for the adults.

My fiance (F) and I (M) are getting married. We’ve decided that the wedding’s gonna be childfree. No hate towards children just to keep it more organized and contained.

My brother ‘Chris’ (M) and his wife (F) have a 3 yro son who everyone calls “miracle” or “rainbow” baby. He came after several failed pregnancies that lasted for years.

When they found out that my nephew was included in the no children rule; they tried to convince me to make an exception for him. Chris told me his son is a miracle baby and his presence at the wedding will bring “blessings” for me and my fiancee. I refused and said no, the wedding is childfree. His wife kept sending my fiancee pics of my nephew when he was months old (what does that mean??). I told them no, and to stop.

My brother told me this might cause a rift in our relationship, I again said no and explained that the wedding is childfree. He asked again and pointed out how his baby is different since he’s a rainbow, a miracle baby. I again said no and explained that the wedding is childfree. They brought it up when they visited at my home and I knew they weren’t going to stop so I’d made flash cards in advance with the phrase “the wedding is childfree, period” and pulled them out and started slowly showing them the flash cards one by one in this order:

The wedding (with a sticker of bride and groom).

Is Child (with a sticker of a baby).

FREEE (with a sticker of a 🚫 sign).

PERIOD (with a huge, black dot sticker).

They both were stunned. I asked if they get it now and Chris had lost his sh*t. His wife had already grabbed her stuff and walked out. Chris called me an a**h**e for doing this and said that I disrespected him, his wife and their son who’s my one and only nephew. He rushed out after we argued. My fiancee saw the whole thing and thought that it was funny but my parents and Chris are livid beyond measure. They’re telling everyone about the amount of disrespect and mockery I had displayed towards them and I’m being told to “fix it” now.

Did I go too far here?
