MsCarabiner: I’m at the ends of my rope. I’m one millimeter from telling Fiance I cut them off. I’m putting up we with so much its obnoxious. But damn me if my momma didn’t raise me right.
JessieFay13: I’m going to stand my ground I fucking refuse to be manipulated.

So sorry to hear of this drama. What a bummer!
I was able to avoid it altogether: if one of our moms didn’t give birth to you, you were not in the wedding party. Well, except my dad. He was allowed. 😛

NFLwidow: my bridesmaids are all my closest friends like think 10-20 years of friendship and my sister of course. Plus, I have 4 brothers one sister. If the younger two were girls like I wanted them to be I’d do that way. But nooooo they had to be boys and I never got a younger sister lol.

sumshine.dawn: If that were me I’d tell my Future Mother-In-Law to GTH! Lol well, in a classy and modest way of course. Good for you for putting your foot down.
My only thought, in case this actually causes some rediculously uncalled for drama would be to give her a job for wedding… programs, guest book… some d list job, but at least if it came to something, you could still say you included her and it’s not your fault she’s ungratful for it!

sumshine.dawn: If you must have her do something, let her be the guest book attendant. 😉

sumshine.dawn: I’m glad you said “we”. In addition to all the good advice you’ve got, I suggest it’s your Fiance (not you) who tells his mother to jump in the lake that Future Sister-In-Law won’t be a bridesmaid.

aussiemum1248: lol. Fi told his mom that her pushing things instead of letting them happen organically is only going to make it worse. We are going to So Cal for Christmas and I got one of my Disney animator friends to paint a scene from FSIL’s favorite Disney movie replacing the prince and princess with Future Brother-In-Law and his wife as a gift to FBIL’s wife. So we’re hoping that helps the situation. His mom making demands isn’t helping. I get why she wants to “help” But we’re all adults here she can’t tell us what to do just because she has been adulting longer.(I’m the baby of the group at 24, Fi is 30, Future Sister-In-Law 31, Future Brother-In-Law is 37, Future Mother-In-Law is 69) lord help me.

sumshine.dawn: girl, stand your ground! No fuckin’ way you gonna allow some bitchy nobody to be your bridesmaid! Who the hell Future Mother-In-Law thinks she is? Don’t allow that old witch to manipulate you into guilt. You’re not guilty of nothing! No, have only your best friends or siblings as your attendants. And, you’re way too nice, which encourages Future Mother-In-Law into pressing you further, because she thinks you’re weak. (Untrue, but that’s how bullies think). Keep strong!
