A man who banned his brother from attending his wedding is standing firm on the decision after he faced a backlash from his angry family.
The 28 year old is set to marry his partner later this month, and among the guests invited were his brother and his girlfriend, who had confirmed they would be attending.
In the build up to the big day, his brother messaged with a picture of him holding an engagement ring with the message 'soon'.
He was so excited to receive the news that his sibling was finally going to pop the question and he asked when he planned on getting down on one knee.
His brother replied to say: "I'll probably do it at your wedding."
Shocked by the news, and thinking it was common knowledge not to propose or announce pregnancies at someone else's wedding, he hoped his brother was winding him up.
"I asked him if he was joking and he said no," he wrote on Reddit. "I told him that he should definitely not do it, as it would be seen as disrespectful to me and my soon-to-be wife. He told me that it 'seems like a good time' because they would be together with the rest of his family.
"I was worried at this point, so I warned him that if he kept saying that he would propose AT MY WEDDING, then I would have to uninvite both him and his girlfriend. He said that that was extremely rude.
"I responded that I will allow him to go if he promised not to propose.
"That should've been the end of it, but he kept insisting that it would be a good time to propose. I called him and told him that I would seriously uninvite him and take him off the list.
"He said 'OK fine' while sighing. I asked him not to bring the engagement ring to the wedding. He said that he would bring it "just in case."
"When I woke up the next morning, I contacted my wedding venue and asked them to take my brother's name, along with his girlfriend, off of the list of their table."
After breaking the news, his parents rang to tell him they were disappointed and demanded that his brother was re-invited to the celebration.
The soon-to-be newlyweds have stood firm, worried about what his brother may do, and he asked for advice as to whether he had done the right thing.
The replies all stuck up for his stance, as one wrote: "Did you tell your parents the reason for uninviting him? That he was planning on proposing to his girlfriend at your wedding? You’ve told him it’s not okay. And to do so after that would be extremely rude and narcissistic.
"There is every chance his girlfriend would be mortified by a proposal at someone else’s wedding. Also, public proposals aren’t always such a good thing if you have zero awareness of the feelings of other people."
A second added: "This infuriates me. He wants to mooch off the atmosphere YOU PAID FOR to give his girlfriend a romantic proposal because he's lazy and can't be bothered to arrange it all himself. You did the right thing."
Another simple asked: "I wonder what he’d tell the girlfriend if she asks why they were uninvited bahaha."
