Totally crappy. We did presents like that after our wedding, but it was Christmas just 2 months after we got married.

She definitely should not have waited so long to give them. Seems like she did it on purpose…

What?  People are allowed to give whatever gifts they want.  I do not see how them sending pictures of a completely different wedding steals the limelight from your presents, and, subsequently your wedding.  “We had to share our wedding with other big events” <~~~~ I think you’re still sore about this, which is ridiculous.  Life goes on surrounding weddings.  It’s especially sad that you’re slighting your SIL for delaying to print her wedding photos because she was self conscious.  She had 3 years to print hers? So?

I get so infuriated by brides who expect their wedding to be THE wedding and the only wedding going on.  Her present does not “take away” from your present in the same way that nothing can take away from your wedding except for your own bad mood.

I think its kind of crappy.  Not like hold a grudge over serious, but anonymous vent on the internet- sure!

What @eeniebeans said. Vent here, then move on 🙂 I would be annoyed too, so if you’re sensitive I guess I am too! Haha

I’m chill.  I just wanted to give you the other side since everyone else seemed to agree with you adamently up until I said something.  I know it’s just an internet vent.  I was just heralding the other side that you admitted might be you being overly sensitive.

I would be annoyed, but maybe her seeing everyone enjoy your pictures inspired her to finally oder hers and get over how she felt about herself in them. I doubt she was doing to upstage you (unless this is a re-occuring situation) besides I am sure everyone was more excited to see yours since they are new!

How obnoxious! We kind of had something similiar happen. Darling Husband and I got married in May and his brother got married in September. When we went to their house for Christmas, his mother had an envelope and inside were pictures from their wedding that she was looking at. Darling Husband was so upset because the one thing his mom had asked for were pictures from our wedding and everyone knew we were getting that for them (along with other gifts) so when we showed up and they were looking at all the pictures his brother just gave them, it was a little disheartening. But thankfully we were one up and had put all our pictures in a super nice album. Not to mention, we gave them 120 photos of everything throughout the day from getting ready to the last dance. All they had given were a few pictures of the bride and groom. FTW! lol

@UpstateCait:Ususally I would say whats the big deal? Relax, other people on earth can have a life and wedding too. But in this case,I don’t think it is appropiate. The wedding was 3 years ago, nobody wants those old ass pictures as a gift. A wedding this past summer, sure… but 3 years ago is a bit too much. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery…lol

What eeniebeans said for sure.  It’s not like you’re making a big deal of this IRL, it’s an internet vent.  Vent away!  If you were freaking out on the SIL in person, I’d think you were being oversensitive and weird.  That’s what the Bee is for. 🙂
