@bostonbridebee123:  Get your fiance (her brother) to ask her to do a reading. Because implicit in that is that she’s not a BM. And as her brother, he can probably handle her better than you can.

Then if she asks her brother isn’t she a bridesmaid, he can say no, she’s just chosen her long time friends. If she then says, “Well mom said I was going to be a BM”, FI can say, “Well there must have been a misunderstanding”. As a last resort (if you’re confronted yourself) you can say that when you said that to FMIL you were put on the spot and hadn’t finalised your bridal party.

I agree with the advice just given I think that’s the way to handle it correctly

Same here! I guess, in her defence, she is 16 years old and seriously petty. But, for whatever reason doesn’t like me and makes it known. When my fiancee and I got engaged she told everyone that it was because I was pregnant…… I had to let her be a bridesmaid because thats what she wanted and I couldn’t say no and have her family mad. So I very much understand!! I guess the best we can do is suck it up and smile. :/
