Meet our bride-to-be (28F) and her fiancé (28M), who have been together for 9 years. They got engaged in October 2019, and since then, her future mother-in-law (54F) has been a thorn in her side. The matriarch of the family has a history of excluding her from family events, and now, she wants to be part of the wedding dress shopping experience. But our bride-to-be has other plans. 😏👗

Matriarch Gets a Dose of Her Own Medicine 💊

Our bride-to-be has had enough of her future mother-in-law's exclusionary tactics. When the matriarch tries to invite herself to the wedding dress shopping, she's met with her own words: "It's for family only." While some family members find it hilarious, others disapprove. Will the matriarch learn her lesson, or will she continue to meddle in the couple's wedding plans? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 😏🍿
