Weddings can be a time of joy and celebration, but they can also bring up some tough emotions, especially when a loved one is no longer with us. One woman found herself in a difficult situation when her younger sister asked to wear their late mother's handmade wedding dress for her own wedding. The older sister, who had her dress made by their mother seven years ago, felt uncomfortable with the idea of altering the dress and offered to lend her sister the veil instead. But the younger sister wasn't satisfied, leading to a family conflict. 😥💔

NTA. Dress is symbolic for you, not in-laws. Entitled people lack respect.

"YTA. Let your sister have that connection to your and her mother on her big day. The dress is a memento, not the actual memory. You can keep the veil. ETA: Soft YTA though. You both lost your mother, and it wasn’t that long ago. Maybe this can bring you closer together."
