How close is your Fiance to his sister?

I wouldn’t tell her anything more.  Maybe just ignore her for the time being for the family’s sake.  Besides, won’t it look strange if she has the same thing for her vow renewal shortly after your wedding?  She’ll be the one to look foolish.  I am planning a vow renewal, but it’s after 30 years, not 2!

If you invite the Brother-In-Law, it would be hard to say he couldn’t bring his wife. But if you aren’t inviting either of them, I think that could work.

Would it be possible to invite her and just not talk to her in order to prevent drama?

unless you want to cause a rift between your Fiance and his brother then yes, you have to invite her.  stop sharing details with her, stop talking wedding and hopefully that will give you some space

You have to invite her to the wedding for family sake, but just stay clear of her.

She may be annoying, but copying your theme isn’t exactly an assault… although of course it’s odd.  Seems like she just wants attention.  Ignore her.

Wow.  Okay, first step:


If she asks you any questions, be as vague as you possibly can be.

Your Fiance may not like her, but I bet he probably loves his brother and wants his brother to be at the wedding.  So, you’ll probably have to bite the bullet and invite her.  Just ignore her at the wedding.  If her vow renewal- which is completely strange after only 2 years, btw- is a mockery of your wedding, then SHE will look like a copycat. 

I’m just assuming she’s wanting to compete for “best daughter in law” with you.  Don’t feed into it.  Just ignore her as much as possible.
