Not to sound rude, but your sister sounds…lovely. Please don’t let her dictate what you do for your wedding. The details are between you and your SO, not everyone else. I’m getting married at the end of the month (!!) and learned quickly that it’s okay to not listen to anyone but yourself and your SO…the day is about the two of you! Sorry you have to deal with this, but try not to let it diminish this fun time. 🙂

I’m glad you confronted her!

Is she older or younger than you? Not that it matters but she sounds like a spoilt bitch!

I’m sure that your wedding will be absolutely lovely! Good on you for putting her in her place. Hope it cools down soon.

@chillinchillin:  I just wouldn’t tell her any details in the future. She sounds so delightful. I’m glad that you said something to her. How melodramatic.

Yeah, this one is easy. Stop talking to her about the wedding. And tell her that you need someone actually helpful and positive as a MO, so no, she WON’T be the Maid/Matron of Honor.

is it her wedding? no. is it her money paying for it? no.

she needs to back off and let you have the wedding YOU want. because it’s YOUR wedding, YOUR choices, YOUR decisions.

not hers.

tell her to shut up.

I agree with PPs, there is no need for her to know every detail if she is going to act like this. And a personal note- nothing says she has to be your Maid/Matron of Honor. If she is going to make your wedding planning miserable, pick a good friend to be the Maid/Matron of Honor and let your sister be a Bridesmaid or Best Man and let her know the day it is time to go pick out dresses (better yet, pick them out without her and inform her of where to go to get fitted and order). If she whines about not being included, tell her why. ]It is NOT her wedding and she is not paying for it so keep her opinions to STHU.

@chillinchillin:  oh, your wedding plans sound so fun! I’m also trying to convince my family that a small BBQ would be a wonderful rehearsal dinner (steak, chicken, corn on the cob, salads). Do you have anyone else in mind for Maid/Matron of Honor, or is she the only plausible choice in your opinion?

She sounds super annoying!
