The dynamics of relationships often undergo transformations from the day of engagement to the wedding day. With ample time and extensive planning involved in preparing for a wedding, it can be challenging if someone close to you unexpectedly becomes distant. In such a situation, the decision of whether to include them in the wedding becomes a dilemma that requires careful consideration.
One couple has recently found themselves at the center of drama when the bride decided to exclude her sister-in-law from her bridal party.
After the Engagement
The original poster (OP) said that she asked her sister-in-law (SIL) to be one of her bridesmaids after she got engaged in 2020. She was super excited, and they got along really well at the time. OP and her husband finally set a date for their wedding in 2024, but OP and her SIL no longer get along. OP and her fiance welcomed a baby in 2022, and since then, her mother-in-law (MIL) and SIL’s attitudes have changed.
Changes After Motherhood
A week after OP gave birth, they visited her MIL and SIL so they could bond with the baby. At one point, OP’s MIL yelled at her after overhearing a conversation between OP and her fiance about a fee for a medical appointment. OP’s SIL took her side, and now they don’t talk as much.
The Lunch Incident
After that, they went to a luncheon with OP’s in-laws and her fiance’s grandparents. His grandma smokes, and every time she would light a cigarette, OP and her fiance would take the baby for a walk around the garden to get away from the smoke. They tried not to be rude or obvious about it.
OP’s MIL still ended up calling them rude and getting into it with OP’s fiance. OP’s fiance told her that if she continues to act like this, she will no longer be allowed around them or the children. OP’s SIL then called OP’s fiance and abused him over the phone, and called OP names.
The Decision to Fire
OP decided that because of this, she no longer wants her SIL to be one of her bridesmaids. They don’t talk even at family events and have each other blocked on social media. OP knows that she will have to clarify it with her at some point.
The Masses Weigh In
The Reddit community was quick to rally support for OP.
One user said, “NTA. SIL is absolutely miserable. I can’t imagine she would want to be your bridesmaid anymore anyway. Also, anyone who smokes in a closed room and insists that a newborn stay in that room is outrageous. That is just outrageous.”
