Q & A

What would you do about a family member being very negative about your upcoming wedding? Laughing at the ceremony program at the rehearsal, saying things like you’ve live together just say I do and go back upstairs, saying you’ve done this before what’s the big deal, etc....she sucked the joy right out of the night.

    • I think in that situation I’d let her know her comments were not going to ruin my wedding.  I’d probably not include her in anything I do in the future as well.  frown

    • Don't include her anymore – it's your day as in you and your partner your showing the world your commitment – maybe a touch of the greened eyed monster coming out honey ....

    • I’m sorry your rehearsal night was spoiled. I agree with the other ladies, it does
      sound like she’s jealous/envious.Talk to her in private if you can, if not shrug it
      off best you can. Congratulations on your upcoming day!

    • I agree with all the ladies here. A bit of jealousy, you should talk to her and let her know how you felt, how she made you feel and tell her, If she doesn’t think your wedding day Is so Important then she doesn’t need to be apart of It. You don’t need to be brought down on what is suppose to be a HAPPY day!

    • Be up front with her and tell her so...That is your day and you are NOT going to let anything or anyone ruin it for you...let her know that you don’t appreciate the snide remarks and that if she has something against the wedding not to bother coming at all...

    • Jealousy is a hell of a drug. Brush your shoulders off, and let her eat cake (wedding cake that is)...maybe then it will sink in.

    • Sounds like she needs a little attitude adjustment. If she can’t act like an adult, she should go spoil someone eles’s moment....Not Yours!!!!
      I would send her a dis-invitation

    • OMG!  I’m so sorry your sister is treating you that way.  It sounds as though she doesn’t want you to be happy.  Also sounds like she doesn’t like other people getting attention, like maybe she has to be the center of attention.  From this point on regarding the wedding, I think I’d politely ignore her if I were you, and only include her when necessary.

      Good luck.

    • Oh I am sorry your sister is trying to steel your moment. Is she married? If so maybe not happily. Could she be wanting to make others laugh? Just a thought because I can’t imagine a sister acting like this.

    • I would make one last effort to understand, but someone else would be in the room to hear the conversation and afterwards she would change her behavior or be left out of everything related to my wedding day.

    • Is your sister older or younger than you?...sometimes older sisters feel they have a right to make any comments they want to a younger sister and younger sisters can sometimes feel as though an older sister is getting all the attention...just a thought...many congrats to you!happy

    • It is best to confront her right now because if you donot it will go on and esclate into bigger things and it will also affect other fammily members.  Nip it in the bud and according to her response you know if you need her around for other functions.
