Weddings can bring out the best and the worst in people, and this story is no exception. Our bride-to-be is planning a low-budget wedding with her fiancé, and her mother-in-law graciously offered her own beautiful wedding dress from a previous marriage. The bride is thrilled, but her mom? Not so much. She believes the dress carries bad energy from the failed marriage and goes to extreme lengths to prevent her daughter from wearing it. 😬

To Ban or Not to Ban? 🚫

So, our bride-to-be is left with a dilemma: should she maintain the ban on her mom, or is she being too harsh? Her mom did apologize and return the dress, but the theft has left a lasting impact. The bride's mom argues that if they have kids in the future, it wouldn't be fair to keep her banned and pleads for understanding during these 'growing pains.' What do you think? Let's see what the internet has to say about this sticky situation... 🍿

Stand your ground and protect your wedding day! 👏
