A woman wants her fiancé and his mother to pay for a new wedding dress after they ruined the one that she bought and caused her pain.


A concerned woman took to Reddit to share the controversial story between the rift she has with her fiancé and soon-to-be mother-in-law. She explained that she and her 26-year-old partner got engaged four months ago and have been planning their wedding, which is slated for October 18.

However, they keep getting interrupted by her soon-to-be mother-in-law, who bugs her about her wedding dress suggestions. Her fiancé’s mom keeps giving her advice on what dress to buy as she believes she knows better than the bride-to-be.

When the poster refused to budge, the future mother-in-law insisted that she follow the poster to shop for the gown. Although hesitant, she agreed to the deal.

On the day of the shopping, the woman called her fiancé’s mom to remind her of the appointment, but she made excuses saying she was busy. As a result, the poster took her mother and went in search of her wedding gown.

Luckily, she was able to find the dress of her dreams, and even though it was above her budget, she believed it was worth it. She brought up the dress home, made some changes to it until it was perfect for her, and kept it in a safe place in her apartment.

Yesterday, after returning from a visit to her mom, the poster discovered that her fiancé was nowhere to be found and neither was her dress. She called him to find out where he was and found that he had taken her dress to show his mother, who refused to settle for photos over Facebook. 


The poster explained that she was livid and waited for him to return. He promised he would be back in 30 minutes, but she waited for hours before he finally showed up.

Once he arrived, she immediately went looking for her dress and found it beneath grocery bags. The zipper was broken, and the fabric was stretched out. She angrily asked him what happened, and he said his sister and mother tried the dress on.

She furiously called her future mother-in-law and confronted her for messing with her dress, but she said it wasn’t a big deal, and the poster was only overreacting.

Her fiancé’s mom agreed to replace the zipper, but the woman insisted that she was paying for a new one. Her future mother-in-law disagreed, saying the poster was only trying to trick her into paying for another dress.

Now, the poster wants to postpone the wedding and wants to know if she is wrong about it. What do you think of this story? If you are interested in reading a similar one about family drama, click here.
