Wow, I’m really sorry you had to deal with all of that stress for YOUR wedding. I honestly can’t believe your MIL was being that selfish. I’m so sorry it wasn’t the wedding you dreamed of, but look at it from the point of view as your new husband – you got to marry each other!

I’m very sorry. It’s too bad your inlaws had to act like children! Try to remember the good points and let the bad ones go since you can’t do anything about it now. ….unless you and your husband plan on talking to his parents about this.

Wow… it sounds like your husband has one of the worst families ever. I’m always sad when I read about family drama ruining a wedding day. You’d think that people would be able to grow up for just one day and think about someone other than themselves. It’s no secret how much work a bride puts into planning her wedding and for family members to ruin it by creating drama is just unforgiveable. But it sounds like you married a great guy. πŸ™‚

Aw I am so sorry! I can relate to the dress problem. My mom didn’t want it to be too tight so it was tied wrong. No one would help me put on my hoop so it was too high and messed up the bottom of my bodice. No one would redo my corset and make it tighter so it looked terrible after a few hours and nobody could figure out the bustle because they were drunk or impatient. They tucked my dress from the bottom into the bottom of the corset. It made the pictures a little less than amazing and I’m still a little upset. I had a lot of other small things go wrong too but after its all over it’s relaxing to know you did it, your married then you start to feel better.

Your MIL is an a-hole. Yup, I said it. I really hope at some point you two can talk about it directly. BUT, the most important part is the I DO and that sounds like it went swimmingly. Congrats fellow Bee, hope you’re enjoying the weather and a little time off with your new HUSBAND!! How cool is that?? πŸ™‚

Did we have the same day?!?!?! I feel for you!!!

My in laws were amazing. They completely stayed out of the way-not that they would be in the way-but they took the flower girl from their side and got her ready, and I didn’t hear a peep from them until I walked out!! MY MOH and BM were a different story. Complete chaos.

My BM stayed at a hotel for the week on the mainland. She never came to my cottage to help with anything. Her kids cried the entire time, while her husband and HIS mother (wtf-dont ask) yelled at the kids (9 and 11) to not get in the ocean. She forgot her makeup/hair stuff, so she was freaking out the few hours before the wedding while her kids cried…her husband and MIL were in my cottage’s living room letting the kids run around. Her son kept jumping in front of our photographer DURING the wedding. They ran around the reception the entire time.

My sister, my MOH, decided to camp the week. She decided she hated her campsite and she would hang out in my tiny beach cottage. As I was trying to frantically finish things last minute (everyone was too busy doing other things the two days before to help) she showed up and announced she needed a shower. I didn’t get to take a shower before my wedding!!!! I felt like my bridal party completely let me down. There wasn’t any bachelorette party, showers thrown by them, two bridesmaids stopped talking to me months before…it was a huge let down.

My parents, whom I limit contact with..came through. As I was in panic mode and no one would GET OUT OF MY ROOM!!!, my step mom and Dad started punching my cards for my guest list tree, and tying the twine through. They were having a good time doing it, and I think they felt useful…I live 7 hours away from them and we totally paid for the wedding ourselves.

Totally jacked this, but I feel your disappointment and bewilderment…sometimes it’s surprising who lets you down the most and who steps up!!!

I am SO sorry that your day was so stressful!!!! Do his parents have a history of being this self absorbed?? Did your husband talk to them about their horrific behavior?? They owe you much more than just an apology!!

You’re right. Some people refuse to ever be satisfied. I hope you enjoy your next reception!!!!!

Im sorry that this happened to you.  But at least you can have a nice reception which maybe they will hopefully not attend or everyone will stare at them like hey there the people that ruined the wedding!

Its good that your FI took the happy road, hes probably used to their terrible behavior!

@MrsPeachMartini:  To MILs credit, her husband JUST left her (see OPs past posts), but OP is right. You don’t get amulligan on your only child’s wedding. :/
