I need help. My sister just put on Facebook that’s she’s upset. I texted her saying whats up, she texted that she’s fuming because dad is giving me mums necklace. My mum passed away 3 years ago.
im abit shocked. This sounds selfish but I can’t wear it on my wedding day. My fiancé has had a locket made with her picture in for me to wear, plus mums necklace is gold and won’t go.
I feel sick the thought of dad giving me something sooo important, and my sisters nothing, even more sick that sister is obv pissed off about it!!
What shall I do? If he gives it me before, I’m thinking of having it into my flowers somehow? Arghhhh what do I do?

Are you the eldest? Is he just giving it to you for your wedding day or forever? Because if it’s for forever then I would be wearing it as much as possible. If its not forever I would add to your bouquet or wear it even if it doesn’t match.

@Mrsdickinson: I would nip it in the butt right now and sit down as a family to discuss it. It sounds like you feel uncomfortable about receiving this gift. I think you and your sisters should make your feelings known. Your dad should understand. Maybe you can agree to come up with a more fair arrangement later when you aren’t two weeks before your wedding and trying to keep everything together.

Your sister needs to talk to your father. Facebook is not the place to air such personal grievances and it isn’t fair to get snarky with you over a gift that was your father’s to bestow. Does your father know that you don’t intend to wear it though? Because if you aren’t careful, I can’t see massive upset all round.
