Her sister didn’t end up wanting that exact dress she tried, but she looked at some other options and purchased a dress from that shop for more than $2,600.
“I was really upset, and felt really disappointed; this is a brand new business and my own sister doesn’t want to buy from me,” she explained.
“The more I thought about it, the more I realized I was disappointed that she hadn’t even given me the respect to come to me, and she went to the other store and bought her dress on a whim.”
“There is no time pressure or any particular reason.”
“I was, and well over a month later I get really upset when I think about it. I don’t want to go to her wedding or have any involvement in her wedding now.”
“As time has gone on, I have thought that it could be because she wouldn’t want my mum to be involved as she is still no contact and I don’t really see that changing.”
“I respect and understand her decision, but I have personally decided life is better with mum and dealing with her sometimes challenging behavior.”
Anyway, now she’s planning on skipping out on her sister’s wedding because of the whole wedding dress incident, and not all of her family members agree with her decision.
Some of her loved ones are of the opinion that she’s blowing this all out of proportion, but she doesn’t think she’s in the wrong at all.
How would you deal with this?
