Bride Refuses To Let Sister-In-Law Wear Special Wedding Dress

A bride feels blindsided when her sister-in-law tries on her homemade wedding dress without permission. The bride is proud of the dress she made with her mother and holds sentimental value as it has her father's shirt sewn into the lining. The sister-in-law is in a similar situation and can't afford a dress, so she asks to borrow the bride's dress. The bride says no because of the sentimental value it holds. The situation escalates to an argument, and the bride is left wondering if she overreacted. AITA?

Bride refuses sister-in-law's request to wear her sentimental wedding dress 😡

Wedding dresses are not just clothes, they represent love, family bonds, and sentimental values. A Reddit user shared her experience when her sister-in-law asked to borrow her homemade wedding dress for her own wedding. The dress not only represents the love between the user and her husband, but also the bond with her mother who helped create it and her father who passed away during the process. When the sister-in-law tried on the dress without permission, the user felt blindsided and refused to loan it. The situation escalated into an argument and name-calling. However, the user later questioned if she overreacted and considers loaning the dress to her sister-in-law. What would you do in this situation? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
