So I bought this beautiful outfit with ruffles on it for her to wear at my SIL's wedding in July, it's pastel lilac and mint with a lilac bow on the front, has a matching bonnet and all. It's perfect and my doll will look perfect in it. Now I take a pic with my cell and send it to SIL to see, thinking she will LOVE it too (I send her pics of Lilah all the time and she never responds BTW) and this is what I get back<br><br>
Me- Lilah's outfit for your wedding!<br><br>
SIL- Why's it white, i'm the only one wearing white!<br><br>
Me- It's NOT freakn white, it's lilac n mint<br><br>
SIL- Oh ok, it looks white in the pic<br><br>
Me- nothing, didn't even respond to her<br><br>
SIL- (2 hours later) what happened to the dress, bonnet, and sweater my mom got her?<br><br>
Me- she needs an outfit for the night before and the day of<br><br>
SIL- Oh, so she's wearing YOURS to the rehearsel dinner then?<br><br>
Me- nothing, don't know what to say..<br><br>
NO MY BABY IS NOT WEARING YOUR MOMS DRESS TO YOUR WEDDING, SHE'S MY BABY AND I BOUGHT HER A CUTE OUTFIT THAT SHES FREAKING WEARING YOU B!TTY....<br><br>
Ugh, so can't stand her!!!

Well, pooh on her. You put that baby in whatever you want. And don't send her any more pics. That just gives her ammunition to fuss with.<br><br>
Pooh, again, I say.

Weddings make people crazy. Dictating what people (brand new babies, no less!) can wear tells me she is a bit over the edge about her wedding. And SILs can be no fun anyway. (My SIL actually DID wear a white dress to MY wedding. What is up with THAT? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry">) It's too bad your SIL can't see how excited you are to be there with your gorgeous baby in a gorgeous lilac dress!

I agree with PP-don't send her anymore pics. She's looking for ammo. Lack of response usually indicates resentment in one form or another...unless the person is just busy, but it doesn't sound like it.<br><br>
Pooh on her.<br><br>
Your baby-not her dolly....

Tell her you'll put her in goth red/black if you feel like it and she can deal with it! She's a baby for goodness sake! Can you say *control freak*? I can totally understand wanting your wedding to be *perfect*, but geez! Totally dont send her any more pics and show up with beautiful Lilah in the lilac dress!

I just kind of want to see a picture of the dress.<br><br>
(And yes, your Sister in Law is being an irrational bridezilla.)

dh thinks shes jealous of our relationship. we've been together for 10 years, married for 6, have had 5 children together, and she's marrying her "contingency" plan who happens to be a "DR."

Whoo, bridezilla is right! At my wedding I can not remember caring what anyone wore... but especially not an infant!

Allow me to be blunt here. She sounds like a shallow, selfish B. I'd ignore what she said and dress your baby however you'd like <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

BRIDEZILLA.<br><br>
Ignore her comments. When it comes down to it, what your baby is wearing should be the last thing on her mind (not that she has any say in it anyways).

I just wonder if SIL's worried that her mother got you an outfit that she'll never see on?<br>
(taking your MIL's feelings into account?)<br>
Maybe you could make sure you get a picture of your baby wearing the knitted outfit and being held by your MIL?

I enjoyed your outburst and only wish that your SIL got to hear it--she deserves it! What a crazy woman!<br><br>
Lilah will totally be the bell of the ball<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
BTW, my best friend had a baby a month before her sister got married. The sister told her that the baby could go to the ceremony but NOT the reception!

Well, DH is 100% on my side with this, and MIL will get to see Lilah in HER dress on Friday night at the rehearsel dinner, so it's not like she'd never see her in it yk?<br><br>
She's insane and that's all there is too it. She did tell me that my 4 older kids can't come to the dinner and I'm just wondering where she'd like me to leave them, since we don't live in Cincinnati that is and everyone will be at the dinner but them (we have the ONLY young kids in the family.

Wow. I can't imagine someone saying that. Is she going to find and pay for child care for your kids since they "aren't allowed"? Wow.
