So, my older sister finally decided to attend my wedding and took time off work. I was so happy she would be able to make it=) BUT the first thing she said to me immediatly after the ceremony (in front of my loving husband) was “Do you think you did the right thing?” WTF!? I pretty much said that I knew he was right for me years ago and I’m extremely happy and excited to spend the rest of my life with such a lovely man.
Later… Right before my husband and I left for our honeymoon (finally) our family friend said that I looked stunning and the wedding was elegant and what not, my sister pipes in and tells me it won’t be my last, right in front of my husband…again. I gave her a dirty look and she insisted she was “only joking.” Thank God the friend told her to shut up and let us enjoy our day.
I know I shouldn’t take any of this seriously, but it still bugs me that she would say that on my WEDDING DAY! We’ve never been close and haven’t talked to her since that day and probably won’t for a while. Thanks for listening! Has anything like this happened to anyone else?

My sister and I are very close, so I’m sorry that you don’t have that kind of relationship with yours. She should have just been happy for you and not trying to make jokes.

That’s horrible! I can’t believe she said those things. You say that you aren’t close, but has she always made such mean comments? Just awful!

What a horrible thing to say! I’m so sorry you have to deal with that from your own sister!!

Geez. Is she jealous of your marriage? That’s kind of what it sounds like to me. I’m sorry she said those things. The other day, Future Mother-In-Law was over and we were watching “Bethanny Getting Married” and she said, “I don’t know why people bother getting married anyway. Everyone just ends up getting divorced”. Ahem.

Wow. Why would she even bother coming to your wedding if she was going to behave like that/ not be supportive.

That is ridiculous. Why do people feel like they need to inject their negative energy into someone else’s wonderful day? I’d say it was “unbelievable” but I’ve gone through some similar things lately that make me believe!
At a family BBQ last weekend, FI’s sister was saying her goodbyes when FI’s stepdad’s brother said “see you in September!” and she turned to him and said “Why…? What’s in September?” and he said “Um.. your brother’s wedding???” and in a very disgusted tone said “Ugh… oh yeah… that.” Fiance and I were within earshot (5-6 feet away), but I don’t think she knows that I heard her. GRR.

My sister and I aren’t close, so I totally sympathize. I’d imagine when people say things on “the day” it magnifies the intensity of their statement. That was so inappropriate for her to say on ANY day. Too bad you can’t choose your family…just try to stay positive 🙂

wow.. i would be super annoyed too!
even though my sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor, but knowing her, she wouldn’t help out with anything and might even show impatience every now and then during the wedding.. 🙁 but she’s still my sister and i do want her to be in my wedding as Maid/Matron of Honor..
