A bride left Facebook users stunned after revealing how her mother-in-law asked to borrow her wedding dress for her own big day.
The anonymous woman, who lives in Portugal, went to the Facebook group ‘That’s It I’m Wedding Shaming’ to rave about her mother-in-law.
The bride and her wife had run to Gibraltar and chose the mother-in-law as the only witness. But the difficult woman, according to the bride, acted like a “brat all day” and spent the ceremony with the young man flirting with their officiant.
The couple fell in love and now have to get married themselves and the mother-in-law wants to save money by reusing her daughter-in-law’s dress, despite being 70 pounds heavier and 3 inches longer.
Other Facebook users quickly criticized the mother-in-law, insisting that the daughter-in-law not donate her wedding dress, saying, ‘Damn no, you’re not crazy for not wanting to share it! Selling your dress is one thing, but it’s different. ‘

The frustrated bride explained how the mother-in-law had ruined their wedding day: “I got unlucky on the morning of the wedding doing my makeup because I wanted my family to be there for me.
“I invited everyone because my brother is homophobic and I didn’t want him at the wedding, so I decided it would be best if I didn’t invite anyone at all but not invite my brother and that would be a problem for the rest of our lives. ‘
The problems continued when it came to hair and makeup, with the mother-in-law refusing to help the bride for herself.
The post continued: “I was already crying in the other room, and a tear ran down my face and fell lightly on my foundation dress, spiraling downward from silent crying to violent sobbing.
“My wife dropped everything she did to help me finish, I didn’t finish my makeup or do my hair at all, so that was that.”
The bride, who said her mother-in-law didn’t fit the sleek white dress, shared photos of the dress on Facebook
The anonymous woman, who lives in Portugal, said her mother-in-law had asked her wife to text her if she could borrow her wedding dress for her own big day
The wedding ceremony went as planned, but the bride explained how her mother-in-law was “trying to get so much attention by flirting with the only other witness there,” the young man who taught the ceremony to officers.
She added, “My wife says it is a misrepresentation of the events, and I have been annoyed with her from the start.
PS: She was wearing a black dress for our wedding, which was very strange, but my wife says it was just a dress she liked.
“She was a brat for the rest of the day, and I felt terrible for most of the day, so we just went home early and I took off the dress, put it away, and have been in my closet ever since.”
Facebook users quickly defended the woman, some insisted that she can do whatever she wants with her own wedding dress and suggest that the mother-in-law just buy her own dress
After the wedding, the couple didn’t speak for a few months because the mother-in-law and the intern started dating, but the woman and her mother-in-law eventually made it up.
She added, “Although I don’t have hard feelings that day, I still find it super weird that she would ask me for the dress I wore one day when she ruined it.
“I always had the feeling that her mom was super possessive and weird, always in small matches with me for my wife’s attention, so wearing the dress is somehow weirder because it, you know, my dress is. ”
Facebook users quickly defended the woman, insisting that she can do whatever she wants with her own wedding dress and suggest that the mother-in-law just buy her.
One of them said, “That’s YOUR dress. You can do whatever you want with it. I’m sure she can find another one! I’m sorry that your problems were that day, but it sounds like you have a loving and supportive wife. ‘
Another said: “No, no no, she can get her own god ** m dress.”
