Don’t want too many personal details on here forever so had to delete it 🙁
Basically my sister and my family have had a falling out over her false accusations (she’s going through a messy divorce and has sort of lost it) now she wants a refund from her bridesmaid dress (she was the matron of honor before she starting going crazy) even though it just came in today. And she definitely won’t let my niece/nephews in the wedding anymore though my niece and I have been talking about her being my flower girl someday since long before we were engaged. She even practiced her pretend flower petal throwing 🙁 I am heartbroken.

What a shame 🙁 I’m so sorry. Do you have other bridesmaids who can step up and be supportive of you on the wedding day? Is there any chance things might turn around between your sis and the rest of the family? 🙁

That is sad 🙁 I noticed your wedding is still a ways away. Perhaps things will calm down before then?

Hope the door doesn’t hit her in the ass on the way out. That’s a low class move, regardless of circumstance and I’m sorry.

Hopefully your sister will come to the realization that she’s acting inappropriately and apologize for her behavior. You still have some time until your wedding so hopefully it all works out one way or another.

All I can say is
(a) I am sorry that this is impacting your beloved Wedding Plans
(b) Divorce sucks. And something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.
As someone who has gone thru it… unfortunately I have to say… one has to live it to believe how incredibly insidious, horrid and devastating it can be. AND YES it does make some otherwise sane people “lose it” and become crazy folks. If she is a Mom with young children the situation can only be that much more horrific for her.
HUG HER, LOVE HER… try to understand. Her WHOLE WORLD is on the rocks…
Your Wedding is important to you… for sure, but it is a joyous celebration of LOVE (which in her situation only makes things for her look all that more bleaker).
It is one thing to find the LOVE of your life… YOU.
And something completely different to lose that relationship… HER (no matter the circumstance)
Imagine every single hope and dream that you have going into your marriage being shattered… the results are devastating !!
The grief overwhelming.
As nuts as she is appearing to you, I’d give her a HALL PASS on this one. It will take time, but she’ll come around eventually and be the Sis you truly can connect with… but it may take a long long time (took me over 5 years, and under 10 to get back to my old self post-Divorce… and I had no kids in tow).
Hope this helps,

@This Time Round: Thank you for your detailed response though. I really do appreciate it. I hope things calm down because the wedding is still so far off- Either way, I’m not giving her her dress money back because I don’t think that’s the way it should work.
