IT GOES without saying that wedding days should always be about the happy bride and groom.
The bride was upset when her mother-in-law stole the show at her wedding[/caption]
She announced that she’s expecting a baby. She’s still pretty young and very healthy but it was a huge shock that just completely took over all night.
Detailing what happened, she wrote: “I was married recently to my childhood sweetheart. Pretty small due to covid but it was planned well in advance so we didn’t cancel, just kept it to family, and we plan to have a party with everyone else at a later date. For some background on my husband, his parents had him pretty young (18 and 19 respectively), and he has a very close family.
“Our wedding reception was quite intimate, but we had the traditional speeches planned: father of the bride, best man (husband’s brother), groom. It was only the day before that my mother-in-law asked if she could have the mic to say a few words when we sat down to eat, and we said that would be great, but that she would need to go before my husband.”
“What’s even worse for me is that I am also pregnant and we planned to announce it at the wedding, but I told my husband to just leave it out of his speech. Everything felt a bit sour for me after that, so.”
She went on to say that she didn’t speak to her mother-in-law for a few days until she got a call from her sister, who was also a guest at the wedding.
“I got a call from her sister (a guest) to ask what was up. I explained that I felt like the attention was taken away from us without our permission (I would have said no, but still) and it was so unfair to spring that on us.
What’s even worse for me is that I am also pregnant and we planned to announce it at the wedding.
“Apparently, I ruined my own wedding because I was obviously p***ed off about the good news and that I was being ‘totally selfish’. Maybe I was, but it was my wedding day that was already ruined by a pandemic!
“Husband is on my side though clearly feels a bit uncomfortable telling his mum that, which I get as I don’t want to have this argument directly with a pregnant woman either.
“The rest of the family has split down the middle (my side and his) because it was such a close family event anyway and ‘we all need some happiness’. Now I’m starting to wonder if I overreacted and spoilt everything.”
One person wrote: “Honestly, it’s tacky to even ask to do it. Then the bride and groom will feel pressure to say yes. Its their day, just let them have it, planning a wedding is stressful enough.”
While a second said: “It’s kind of ridiculous how angered I am for OP at what the MIL did.
“I remember when I was engaged and thinking about how livid I would be if someone announced a pregnancy or got engaged or something at my wedding, and I was pretty cool with a lot of untraditional stuff. It’s ABSOLUTELY NEVER okay unless there’s been explicit permission from the couple.”
