It seems like her reaction is a bit extreme to me, but IMO she is acting out of hurt feelings.  She may feel like she is being forced to choose between your shower and her husbands child (not due to you, but maybe due to him).  There is no way to know what is really going on in her heart and head without talking to her.  I would give her a call.  She is you Future Sister-In-Law, you want to make sure you start and stay on good footing.

It sounds like your bridesmaide has been put in a very hard place, no matter what decison she makes someone will be unhappy. Her husband will be mad at her if she puts your shower before his child, but you obviously are upset she has chosen this child over yourt shower. If I were her I would support my husband too- it is his child, therefore someone who should be important to her too (even though it sounds complicated with them!). I understand that you don’t want any drama at the shower, but if it keeps the peace in her family and means she will come let her bring her step child.

Is this other child a boy or girl?

She wanted to pick up a child she hasn’t bothered to ever meet before and subject her to a bridal shower where she’d know no-one? Uh… yeah. No.

@NDBride2011: Sounds like Future Sister-In-Law wanted to kill two birds with one stone: Pick up step daughter, go to your shower (while spending time with step daughter), then drop step daughter off back at home after the shower, before heading home herself.

If her step daughter can’t come to the shower, Future Sister-In-Law will have to a) spend double the time in this town (shower, then time with step daughter), and b) figure out something that she can do with step daughter. Double the inconvenience for Future Sister-In-Law.

I think this all sounds so childish.. Not of you.. Just everyone else.. If I were you I would just let everything play out and not stress out to much over this.
