That would be such a shame if she chose not to attend her son’s wedding over that.  I think she will get over it – especially if your Fiance backs you up.

Stand stong dear!  I’m sorry you have to deal with this, but you were 100% in the right there.  The mother will get over it (hopefully).

I would not recommend that you change your mind. If you give in to this manipulative behavior on the part of your Future Sister-In-Law and Future Mother-In-Law, it will never end.

Someone needs to draw the line for the Future Sister-In-Law and clearly her family is not prepared to do it.

Although your Future Mother-In-Law may say that she will not attend, this will likely just be more manipulative behavior. She has a year to change her mind and attend her son’s wedding.

Tell her she will have her turn to shine, but for now its not time! =) But thank her for being so willing to be apart of the bridal party! Play her game and use it against her!

Best of Luck! xo

Seems like there will always be that one or those few people that make wedding planning SO hard!

Could someone (maybe your FI?) explain to her that bridesmaids have to buy their own dresses/jewelry, and also chip in on the bachelorette party/bridal shower…?

Since she seems only interested in receiving gifts, maybe realizing all the expenses involved will make her think twice about it?

I wouldnt have her in my party either. Assuming your Fiance is on your side just keep going on. No reason to explain yourself or apologize. You already let her know.

Are you freaking serious??  I have no words.. just sorry you got to deal with such a bitch.  I could swear a person that awful could only have been made up for a movie, but I gues I’m wrong.  =(  How have you not punched her in the face yet….. REALLY?!  She kicked your Fiance in *ahem* and the whole family continues to stand there and defend her??  What world are they FROM!?  Sorry if my response sounds really mean, its just my reaction…

@Nasta: oh gosh, from the sound of it, I dont think she’d care and still say want to be a part of it, then not buy the dress and claim to not have money and just sabotage everything!
