    Wow that’s pretty rude.  I’m guessing she just got caught up in the moment and wasn’t thinking?  Hopefully you can let this go as time goes on, you did get to see your groom, it was just delayed a bit!  And if it makes you feel any better, no one was in my aisle and I don’t remember what my grooms face looked like.

    There wasn’t for me but this is a common problem I think. I’ve been to quite a few weddings where guests have to enter their seats from the oustide (not the aisle) and then there is ribbon or something strung along the seats on either side of the aisle so they cannot go that way— might be a good thing to do for anyone who is worried about this happening to them.

    Yes, two larger members of DH’s family had pushed themselves over the line of the rose petals and into my aisle.  I walked with both my parents and the three of us could not fit through that together so mom had to back off and navigate around.  She’s still pissed.

    @kay01:  I would start calling her Thunder Stealer.  For real though, someone should say something to her so your brother in law and his fiance don’t have to go through the same thing!

    This did not happen to me… at least not yet, I’m getting married in October so we’ll see!

    But at a friend’s wedding the bride’s aunt stepped out into the aisle to take a photo after the bride passed by and STEPPED ON HER VEIL!  She was actually standing in the aisle on the bride’s veil for a good 10 seconds.  The woman didn’t realize she was standing on the veil because it was a verrry long veil and the woman was preoccupied with taking pictures I’m sure.. but it almost ripped the veil off the brides head as she continued to walk!  My fiancée ran over and gently “lifted” the woman off the veil so the bride could continue walking down the aisle. It was almost a disastrous moment.

    So sorry this happened to you.  I agree with PP.. your first look was just delayed a bit 😉

    Wow, I learned something new today…

    And that is pretty amazing because at 50+ Years old, and having been to dozens of weddings, I thought I knew much / seen much over the years

    The “swag” that goes with the front pews reserved seating, isn’t just there as decoration / deterrent from folks who aren’t close family members sitting there… it is also meant as a way to prevent folks upfront from getting into the aisle when the Bride makes her entrance.

    Totally makes sense.

    Way back when, for my first wedding (30+ Years ago), I don’t recall anyone of my Guests getting into the aisle to photograph… but our photographer was certainly there, but my memory tells me he was pretty discreet about it… because I totally remember being able to see my Ex all the way down the aisle.  A cherished memory.

    By The Way, that was pretty rude of your Mother-In-Law, but as others said, she probably got caught up in the moment… your Hubby should do his Brother & Future Sister-In-Law a favour, and tell them to prepare for this (hang swag)… or maybe someone should have a “chat” with Mom.

    On the otherhand, I don’t have words for her calling you up and spoiling the surprise about the ring / proposal.  Sheesh… some people !!

    As a photographer I dont even do that.  I squat down at the front on the side of the isle & photograph that way.  I would have been like sit down Or loose it. lol

    Nope, not at all… and I’m not even sure where the photographers were they were that inconspicuous!

    That totally sucks that she did that, and compiled with her ruining of the surprise about the ring/proposal… I would be livid.  She seems like a kill joy, and I don’t know how I would deal with that.
