No. Your aunt is having a passive aggressive tantrum. I would ignore it and if it comes up say “oh I didn’t even notice”.

michelleh12 :  Uh, no. You’re under absolutely no obligation to send your custom to a adjunct family member 3/4 of a continent away. 

And she should have the maturity to talk to FI about it if she’s that upset and not resort to middle-school social media revenge tactics.

Oy vey

You’re not obligated to go to an aunt’s boyfriend for anything. It is ridiculous that she even expected you to.

michelleh12 :  I wouldn’t have bought from them if they were on the next block personally. Business and family don’t mix.

michelleh12 :  Please don’t let yourself think like that. Youre not obligated to buy your ring from a family member,  friend etc. 

I feel that is an overeaction on her part, are you sure there isn’t anything else she would be upset over? 

Regardless,  if she’s being petty, I wouldnt let her get to you. You and your FI did your part and invited her to your wedding.  Whether she decides to attend or not, is ultimately up to her and should affect you in any way.  

Hopefully,  she will come around and stop being childish.

That’s a huge overreaction on her part, you really did nothing wrong. I’d forget about it if I were you… Seems like something she needs to work out on her own.

It could be anything – it’s a stretch to think that it’s the ring. Maybe she’s been helping plan a shower and didn’t want you to see her facebook posts, maybe she got tired of some other posts (ie. politics, inspirational quotes etc), maybe she’s not facebook savy and accidentally put you two in a seperate group than the ones her posts are visible to

michelleh12 :  It is beyond petty for her to be upset about something like that. This isn’t an uncle he’s known all his life- it’s her boyfriend he met once. It isn’t a shop that’s around the corner- it’s across the country. This is so dumb and if she’s blocking you based on that alone I would hope your FMIL would see how childish and ridiculous her sister is being and not get upset with you two.

michelleh12 :  Even if it were her husband I still wouldn’t have gotten the ring from them. There is something to be said about trying it on, seeing it, feeling it.

Let her have her temper tantrum and ignore her. She’s being stupid for carrying on in such a manner.

Not at all!! If you own a business, you can’t take things personally. People are free to choose any jeweler they want to use.

This is one of those posts where I just roll my eyes. 

I’m sorry to come across as insensitive, but really. She’s blocked you on FB. What age are you all?

If she has a problem with you for any reason, she should be talking to you about it. If she’s so petty and dramatic that this is her way of dealing with it then why would you want to even think about it? 

I’m sure you both have better/more important things to be worrying about than her childish behaviour. Stop wasting your energy, she’ll come round.

michelleh12 :  Does she live in Vegas? Even if it was the trip that still doesn’t excuse her behavior. Blocking someone on Facebook is an incredibly immature and poor way to deal with any hurt feelings she may have for whatever reason.
