So my friend's wedding is comming up very soon. Her SM called and told her that if she doesn't get to share the mother of the bride role with her mother, she will not come and she will not 'let " her dad come either. Understandably, her mother doesn't want to share her role, this is her only DD and the SM has only been around a few years. She is doing this because she has no DD of her own. Meanwhile her mom has already paid for the entire wedding and has helped do all the planning, the SM never wanted in until all the work was done. The SM also wants to wear the exact mother of the bride dress that the mother is wearing. SM is also LIVID that the mother will be wearing a string of pearls that were the bride's father's grandmother's, she gave them to her when her dd (the bride) was born but the SM thinks that they should be her's now. She is torn because she wants her dad there. I am thinking that it is not fair to her mom to take half the role. The other thing is the dad can still come if he wants to, he just has to go against his wife... Any thoughts?

I totally agree. It is your friend's wedding. And if her dad is a nice man than he will understand that a wedding is all about what the BRIDE wants. I would speak to her dad about the wedding and tell him he is more than welcome and the dragon as well. But she doesn't get the same rights as her mother. If the dad loves his daughter he will go to the wedding anyway. I feel so sorry for your friend. It is really not fair she has to go though on this and she can't just focus on her wedding plan:( Hugs.

I can only say one word "NARCISIST". Don't you love narcisist personality pplwho thinks everything is about them. Come on, someone take this women aside and tell her to shutup, play the part that she chose by marrying a man with children (THE SECOND WIFE NOT MOTHER) or don't come.

The Dad should tell SM while he is at the Wedding- Giving his Daughter Away; she will have the Whole Day to herself to Pack & Move Out! WOW- Unbelievable!
