Sister refuses to comply with strict dress code for sister's wedding

When planning a wedding, there are many things to consider, including the venue's dress code. For one bride, enforcing the strict dress code of her fiance's family's country club is causing a rift between her and her sister. Despite multiple attempts to compromise, her sister refuses to comply and has ultimately decided not to attend the wedding.

The bride's mother suggests changing the venue or requesting an exception to be made, but both options seem impossible. Is the bride in the wrong for enforcing the dress code or is her sister being unreasonable? This situation highlights the importance of communication and compromise when planning a wedding.

Let's take a look at some of the reactions and advice from others in the comments.
