"We've agreed to not have kids at our wedding, as we want the reception to be a huge party for your adult friends and family with dancing, loud music and an open bar," the user, Legitimate_Scar_8747 wrote. "However, for precisely the same reasons that we don't want kids there, I don't want his elderly grandmother at our wedding either."

The bride explained that her fiancé’s grandmother was invited to the ceremony, but hoped she wouldn’t arrive to the celebration after because it would be a "party atmosphere, and she will be extremely out of place," the bride wrote.

Since first getting posted on Tuesday, Reddit and Twitter users have criticized the bride for her exclusive invite list.

"You're hearing the love of your life say this is important. You're hearing someone really important to your partner say this is important," says the top-rated comment under the post. "And you're putting getting drunk ahead of that? She's been a grown adult longer than you've been alive—I'm pretty sure she can handle any tiredness and noise as she wishes."

Another Twitter user wrote, “One of the many privileges of getting older is getting to be the 98-year-old woman dancing the night away with a martini in each hand, proving ageist jerks like this wrong.”

While another user had harsher words for the bride, saying “Dreadful, grandparents from both side and their parents came to our wedding and we're spoiled by the children. Would not marry such a cold person.”

Although it is unknown when the wedding is set to take place, both the groom and the grandmother are justifiably upset. But the bride-to-be was defiant adding, "I think I am within my right to make this request, I am the bride after all."

If the bride and groom make it down the aisle, here's hoping granny takes to the dance floor and catches the bouquet!
