The nerve of my sister in law!!!!!

Recommended Posts

I think she was just trying to do something nice. Usually whoever is hosting may solicit the help of close family and friends to pull it off. I would give her the benefit of the doubt. Your mom offered what she felt she comfortable with and I think that is fine.

I have a sister in law very similar so I feel your pain. I really don't know how to help other than tell her thanks but no thanks. I am having a hard time with mine so being nice is wearing thin with me and actually making me sick inside, hope you find a middle ground with her.

My sister gave us our engagement party with my bridesmaids help. Unfort. my SIL is one of my bridesmaids. My sis sent out group emails and even included my MIL. My SIL only awns. one email saying that she lived far otherwise would love to help. My sis replied and said. how about you bring the cake? She said yes and my sis never heared back from her again.


MIL said the SIL didnt know if she could get time off from work to come so she would take care of the cake. My sis said that was fine.


The day of the party there was a problem with the cake that it needed to be picked up earlier. My sis called my MIL to ask if she could pick it up earlier. My MIL said she couldnt because they were going out on the boat. I dont know if you know..but going out on the boat in the ocean is an all day thing and draining.


Needles to say my sister had to have the cake delivered and paid for it. Oh surprise!! my SIL made it and thats why they were going out on the boat. They got to our house (where the party was) 2 hours late.


My SIL had a bad face the whole party. Never said hello or goodbye to my sis.Later I found out she was telling my FI friend crap about us...like why are they getting married so soon, how come my bother never told me he was gonna get engaged.


My FI ended up paying my sis for the cake because i felt it wasnt fair for her to get stuck with the majority of the costs. My SIL didnt even give us a card...she left early 2!


I figured it out...no one gave her an engagement party so therefore why should she help with ours :) The thing is you know ur SIL better then us and I'm sure you know how she is with other things. Just try and ignore her..I know its hard to do trust me!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
