A BRIDE-TO-BE was left fuming when her sister-in-law decided to hijack her wedding date and then screamed at HER for “ruining” her big day.
Weddings are stressful enough to plan, especially when it comes to ensuring there are no date clashes, and one woman’s experience quickly turned sour when she realised her sister-in-law was planning on tying the knot on the same day.
She and her partner had been together for five years and recently announced they were engaged.
Naturally, wedding plans are already taking off, with the 28-year-old woman revealing in a post shared via Reddit that she is hoping to tie the knot in May 2022.
Things soon turned complicated, however, when she found out her fiancé’s sister had set her sights on getting married the very same weekend they had chosen.
The bride-to-be explained that her future sister-in-law, who she calls Megan, has been engaged for about a year, but has never publicly announced the news or revealed any plans she had for an upcoming wedding.
She wrote: “My fiancé’s sister (38F – let’s call her Megan) has been engaged for about a year but has never actually announced it or even spoken about it with anyone including family.
“We only know because she wears a ring and occasionally slips and calls her SO fiancé. When she learned we were engaged, she acted happy but then started talking horrible things about us to her mom (Sussie).
“Before we selected this date, I asked Megan and her Sussie if they had any wedding dates picked or planned so that we don’t interfere since they were engaged first.”
The bride-to-be revealed that Megan continued to pretend she wasn’t getting married, while her mum Sussie said there were no plans in place for Megan to wed.

“Based off of these responses we picked a date, a venue, set a deposit, and mailed the scar the dates. Much to Megan’s disliking,” the woman revealed.
“She called my fiancé SCREAMING at him for picking the weekend of her wedding, that she had planned for that all along and was still trying to get her things in order to place a deposit and announce it.
“She called me all kinds of names and told him I’m an a*****e and b***h for ruining her big day.”
She continued: “The next day I screenshot her text and sent it to Megan and asked her how she can be mad when I asked her point blank about the dates and she said, ‘I figured you’d pick any other day of the 365 days but not that one.’
“I said I was sorry and that I could try to reschedule and see if our venue will change our date with the deposit.”
The bride-to-be revealed her venue wouldn’t budge and if they rescheduled she and her fiancé would lose their deposit.
Instead, they agreed they would keep their date as they’d already put money down towards it, while Megan hasn’t yet secured a venue or splashed any cash on her wedding plans.
They added that Megan “obviously hates this” and that she had threatened to “outcast” them from the family, “ruin their wedding day” and “curse our future children”.
She called my fiancé SCREAMING at him… she called me all kinds of names and told him I’m an a*****e and b***h for ruining her big day
Asking for advice, the bride added that the tense situation has divided their family, with some siding with the couple and others siding with Megan.
Sharing an update, the bride then revealed that Megan reached out and agreed to change her wedding date, but only on the condition that she would be a bridesmaid at their wedding.
“Clearly, that is NOT happening and I called Sussie and Megan and explained why that is not an option. Megan again, lost it and said then she is taking our date and it’s now hers,” the bride shared.
“My fiancé jumped in with the support of his family now completely behind us because she was actually trying to blackmail us.”
Her partner sent a message telling Megan she was not going to get their wedding date, would not be a bridesmaid and, at this point, isn’t even invited to their wedding.
Megan responded by cutting ties with the family, with the bride venting that she’ll probably be back in contact in six months time, as such behaviour is a “common trend” with her.
People were left outraged by Megan’s behaviour, with many rallying around the bride and insisting she wasn’t to blame.
“[Megan] acted like she was not even getting married. You are not a mind reader,” said one person.
Another commented: “You are not the ones being selfish.”
A third wrote: “The only person [Megan] should be mad at is herself.”
One more posted: “I think you knew the answer before making this post but clearly… Megan sounds utterly unreasonable. Are you a mind reader? How could you have possibly known? I’m confused how any family/friends could be on her side given what you’ve shared with us.”

Plus, a bridezilla is blasted for ‘ridiculous’ list of strict rules for wedding guests – including telling them to ‘pace’ boozing.
