Internet supports man who doesn’t invite gay brother to wedding over rainbow tuxedo

A man-to-be is branded”homophobic” by his homo brother na invites him to the wedding about his plans to wear a rainbow-colored tuxedo.

But while his sibling is furious about the stump, many felt online that the groom was justified in excluding his brother from his big day, given the circumstances.

weddings traditions have evolved over the decades, with certain traditions slowly dying out, only to be replaced by new ones, but one adage remains true: never upstage the bride

For celebrity wedding planner Liz Taylor, that rule is especially true when it comes to what guests choose to wear. “Guests should never try to outdo the bride,” Taylor told the Metro† “If you have the privilege of being invited to attend a wedding anniversary, it is your responsibility to dress in the right style and color.”

That is essentially the crux of the argument involving one reddit user posts like Yrboiduck, and his brother Sam.

According to the message (which has been updated 6,000 times, while earning more than 15,000 upvotes in his comments), the groom had been looking forward to welcoming Sam and his friend Jack to the wedding.

But that all changed a week before the big day, when Sam sent him a photo of what he planned to wear. “It was a rainbow tuxedo,” the brother wrote. The rainbow flag is synonymous with the LGBTQA+ pride movement.

“At first I thought he was joking so I said ‘lmao’. He was really hurt and told me to fuck myself.” While he said he’d always been “completely okay” with whatever Sam had worn in the past, both he and his fiancé felt the suit was “inappropriate” in this case and would “divert their attention.”

More importantly, the invitation to their wedding had noted that the dress code was “black and white only.” Although the groom told his brother “he could come if he didn’t wear the outfit,” Sam refused to go back.

“He said it cost a lot of money and he didn’t want it to be lost because I was homophobic,” he wrote.

Angered by Sam’s refusal to back out, the groom told him that both he and his friend were “uninvited” to the wedding. Sam fired back at his brother for clearly not wanting him there because he was “homophobic.”

“I am definitely not homophobic,” the groom wrote. “I’m going to pride marches and never had a problem with him being gay.”

While “most” of his family agree with their decision, some “refuse” to attend the wedding due to the rejection. Yet social media turned out to side with the newlyweds.

Patjames904 wrote, “A rainbow tuxedo? Seriously? Yes, that would distract the bride and you. He pulls the gay card to make you strong to let him wear that to the wedding.”

“The problem is clothing that was not appropriate,” said Downtown_Evidence_46. “The problem is not homophobia.” DirectBar7709 added: “You don’t have to break the dress code just because you’re gay.”

InformalGarlic2285 commented: “It’s his fault he bought it before asking if he could wear it. You didn’t ask him to buy it, so that’s his problem. Your brother sounds very dramatic,” writes the marzipan shepherdess : “This is the equivalent of wearing a long white dress to a wedding and then take your nose out of the joint when you’re told it’s not an appropriate choice.”

“That’s your day,” Chicken_Parm_Calzone said. “When he gets married, he can wear his rainbow costume. I suggest you reconcile with him and work something out. It’s a great day to invite your brother to something stupid that can be easily fixed.”
