YOU shouldn’t say anything to her.

Your fiance should – she’s his sister.

I think you’re sparking more drama by mentioning the drama. If you’re leaving her in the party, then just tell her the details of the dress appointment.

@eecuadrado: Can you just pick out dress options on your own and let them decide? Or pick one dress and say, “please wear this.” There’s no need to make it an in-person event, which allows for the potential for her to get you down. Sure, it might not be what you had planned, but I think it’s the best way to minimize conflict.

@eecuadrado:  Yeah, but first and foremost it’s his sister. Your relationship with her will extend beyond just the wedding, and it’s best to have someone more familiar with her handle this rather than make demands about her moods/personality at any and all wedding events (TBH I’d be SUPER offended and very hurt if someone said something like that to me.)

Or better yet – don’t ask him to deal with it and just give her appointment details without requesting she come equipped with a smile.

Even at the wedding – she’s not representing you she’s standing up for you… she is her own person, even at your wedding. If she wants to walk down the aisle with a sour look on her face that’s on her – no one is going to blame you for it.
