The most important item a bride must decide on ahead of her wedding is the wedding dress. It’s often the first item that is organised after that engagement ring is slipped on her finger, that is, if it hasn’t already secretly been decided on or at least considered ahead of the proposal. Once the dress is sorted, the rest just seems to fall into place.
“Fall into place” as in it’s painstakingly organised by the couple down to the very last detail.
Once the day arrives and everything is in place, it’s time to relax and enjoy the day. That is, as long as someone doesn’t try and ruin your day by being impossible.
Enter your mother-in-law.
Mamamia Confessions: The thing I secretly want to tell my mother-in-law.
This story isn’t about all mother-in-laws. Not all relationships involving mothers-in-law are difficult and maybe this one didn’t have any issues ahead of the blessed event (although that’s hard to imagine). While this story is scant on details, one thing is obvious.
The mother-in-law turned up to the wedding wearing a wedding dress, and the bride was pissed. Who wouldn’t be? It’s just not done.
This mother-in-law may as well have arrived wearing a t-shirt saying, “I hate the bride”, or “You’re not good enough for my son”, or perhaps she could have rolled around on the floor throwing an almighty tantrum during the ceremony. Even that would have been better. At least then the wedding video would have been interesting. But no, instead like many unhappy motherd-in-law before her this woman chose a perfect act of passive-aggression.
This story was shared on website Whisper along with 20 other stories of nightmare mother-in-laws in an article called, 21 infuriating tales of mothers-in-law who got off on ruining a wedding.
