Her Fiance Returned Her Wedding Dress for One His Mother Wanted her to Wear

Move over Bridezilla, there’s a new zilla in town. Do you think a mother in law has final say on what dress her future daughter in law wears? Does she really have any say at all?

After this bride-to-be found a dress she loved and told her mother-in-law she didn’t like the one she “pictured her son’s wife wearing,” an argument erupted, and her fiance ended up taking back her dress.

The original poster (OP) starts her story off by saying that wedding planning thus far has been a nightmare, and her fiance’s mother isn’t making it any easier on them. OP feels her fiance’s demands about his mother’s “touches” on the wedding should be at least considered but OP feels that it’s their wedding and his mother should have no say in what they wear or do.

OP’s fiance wants his mother’s “vision” of their wedding to be respected and appreciated because he is her only son. Recently, OP’s mother-in-law insisted she comes along for wedding dress shopping, OP agreed and took her with her mom and friend

OP went on to say she was so lucky to have found what she was looking for in a dress, but then her future mother-in-law picked and showed her a dress that she said she liked so much and said, “she always pictured her son’s bride in” OP’s mother and friends thought this was a bit creepy and OP thought the dress was not her type.

OP then said that she recently came home to find out that her fiance had returned the wedding dress she picked out and purchased and replaced it with the one his mom wanted. OP immediately called her fiance.

Redditors didn’t disappoint when it came to this wedding dress disaster. Many quickly shared their opinions on the OP, fiance, and mother-in-law issues. One Redditor said, “Hand him the ring back…Say “I hope you get the wedding you and your mom have always hoped for.” Walk away.”

A second Redditor said, “ It’s good that this is happening now. This is not a dynamic that is going to change with either your fiancé or his mother. RUN.” A third Redditor said, “NTA, sane response: call off the wedding – comedy response: take his suit back and exchange it for a clown outfit”
