The bride wrote: ‘My SIL is still very young and she grew up very spoiled. She’s still very self-centered but since her pregnancy she has started maturing. Despite our personality differences she and I have grown sort of close. I was genuinely excited about the baby.’
Continuing on with the expected wedding rituals, the bride planned a wedding shower and chose told hold the party May 19.
She asked family and friends, including the sister-in-law, if her chosen date conflicted with any of their schedules before sending off the invitations.
Although the sister-in-law allegedly told the bride her wedding shower date was fine, the bride was utterly confused when two weeks later her sister-in-law sent out invitations for her baby shower on the same day.
Her husband’s relatives, who had already RSVP’d for the wedding shower, skipped the bride’s celebration and went to the baby shower instead.
To add insult to injury, the sister-in-law, ‘showed up at my shower in the last hour wearing a white dress, a tiara, and a pink satin sash over her chest.’
The next, and biggest slight, came during the bride’s wedding day.
‘Husband and I picked June 8th for the wedding. We had everything set up, everything paid for, a church and a minister, reception hall,’ the bride said.
‘It was all set and ready to go. About a week before my wedding [sister-in-law] announces that she scheduled her c-section for-June 8th.’
According to the bride, the sister-in-law was having a c-section because she had a medical condition with her placenta that made child birth difficult.

The husband’s family members, along with family friends, decided to bail on the wedding last minute in favor of the sister-in-laws birth
The sister-in-law was due on June 14, four days after the bride’s wedding, and doctors wanted to have the surgery on June 12.
The brother-in-law allegedly told the bride that the sister-in-law ‘insisted’ on having her baby on June 8.
The husband’s parents told the bride ‘that if they had to choose between the first grandchild and our wedding they’d choose the baby.’
Then, everyone else followed.
‘Then his grandparents, his three aunts and two uncles and several cousins all said they wanted to be at the hospital for the baby…then a bunch of their family friends got wind that these relatives weren’t attending and backed out as well.’
The bride eventually admitted she was upset by the sister-in-laws questionable actions and has yet to met the newborn baby.
Reddit users were torn by the story, but many agreed that sister-in-law was up to no good.
One user wrote: ‘I may have to accept my down votes, because Reddit lets pregnant women get away with A LOT. She stole both of your days after you sent out invites and then acted shocked that you were upset.’
Another said: ‘I’m not one for believing people get to reserve dates for special occasions. But your SIL went above and beyond to screw you over and insist on being in the spotlight.’
