My husbands brother got married in March to a girl he had been with for 5 months, and the engagement was 3 months total. She planned out her dream wedding and was so excited about it, and my MIL bought this gorgeous ball gown for her because her family couldnt afford to pay for a massive wedding (her father had taken on her credit card debt as his wedding gift to her and didnt have much left over to spend). MIL also ended up paying for the flowers and DJ, which was extremely generous. The venue was a gorgeous modern art museum and she planned a very modern wedding with a lot of very cute details.
A month before the wedding and after seeing my very fitted mermaid dress, SIL decided she didnt like her dress anymore, showed my BIL the dress, and then cried hysterically because he had seen it and she demanded a new dress. MIL conceded because she wanted her to be happy and felt bad that her family was unable to be much help with the planning and bought a new & equally expensive dress, after being told by SIL that she would still wear the first and crying about how her day would be ruined otherwise.
All this to be said, she didnt wear the first dress, which bummed MIL out. The wedding was lovely, she was lovely, everything went smoothly. WE all thought it was great, and SIL seemed very happy.
Then, 3 months later, my husband and I got married. Our wedding was very classic, my dress was all lace and fitted, and we had more traditional elements.
SIL is now saying she hated her wedding and wanted one like mine, and says she hated the photographer and her dresses and the flowers, and wants to do it over again next March. She is 100% serious. Her husband will probably not say no to her because he tends to try and keep the peace.
Am I right in thinking shes borderline insane? I just cant fathom, after having that much generosity bestowed on you, askingfor a redo. COME ON!

I swear, you can’t make this stuff up. That’s awful. Extreme insecurity?

@knash004: Ugh. NO. That’s all I kept thinking as I read your post! To rationalize everything, though, planning a wedding is difficult and can involve many stressful decisions and “what ifs.” She seems to be going through a terrible “what if” stage, and I do hope her DH can simmer her down. She had the wedding of her dreams, she cannot let her what if thought process get the best of her.
I advise you, dear, to grab a bottle glass of nice wine. 😉

I feel sorry for your brother in law.

What an ungrateful B! My grandfather almost died at my sisters wedding and he and my grandmother and uncle missed the wedding and my sister for a while was upset (understandably) and would say she wanted a do-over. But, even then her husband would be so upset when she said she wanted a do-over. Your SIL has no valid reason for wanting a re-do nor for even vocalizing her emotions. She sounds really immature and like a spoiled brat!

That’s f**king hilarious!
Maybe you could give her barbie as a wedding present…sounds like she might be into that type of thing!

That’s pretty crazy. I know I have said to myself “Oh I wish I could do that over again” just because it was fun. But to actually go through with it . . . why not just have a fancy party?

LOL.. what a piece of work. They should tell her she can do anything she wants if she wants to pay for it with her own money. I certainly wouldnt entertain the idea of paying for all that again if I were her husband.

As others have said, here on WBee time and time again…
You just cannot make this sh!t up.
Ya gotta wonder about this gal… it seems to be ALL about the Wedding (never mind that she was in super debt, Grooms Family dished out for the event, MIL bought her 2 Dresses, etc etc etc)
What is the state of their marriage? Cannot be good… such a ME-ME-ME person must be a nightmare to live with !!

What in the world O_O
Why doesn’t she just wait a few years and do a vow renewal. Sheesh, that seems awfully quick and she seems super ungrateful.

Not only is she insane, but I’d love to see what happens if she actually TRIES to do this. Everyone in her life will laugh at her. If she tries to do it then she deserves what will be coming!
