Bride Is Furious After Sister-In-Law Scheduled C-Section On Her Wedding Day

A family recently went through some major drama when a wedding and a C-section were scheduled for the very same day. Afterwards, the bride took to the social media site Reddit to express her frustrations.

Reddit user Ginnywhatchoowannado explained that she got engaged last November and that she set a June wedding date with her fiancé right away. It didn’t take long for the trouble to start.

“A few weeks (after announcing the date) my brother-in-law and sister-in-law announced the pregnancy of their first child,” she explained. “My sister-in-law is still very young and she grew up very spoiled. She’s still very self-centered but since her pregnancy, she has started maturing. Despite our personality differences she and I have grown sort of close. I was genuinely excited about the baby.”

Things took a turn for the worse when it came time for the bride to schedule her bridal shower.  Right after she set a date for May and sent out invites, the pregnant sister-in-law made a shocking decision.

“About two weeks before my shower my sister-in-law sent out invites for her baby shower-for May 19th,” the post explained. “My husband’s relatives who I had invited and who had RSVPed my shower skipped my shower for hers.” Making things even worse, the sister-in-law “showed up at my shower in the last hour wearing a white dress, a tiara, and a pink satin sash over her chest.”

“About a week before my wedding, (my sister-in-law) announces that she scheduled her c-section for (the same day as the wedding),” she said, adding that a health condition led to the decision to have the C-section. “My mother-in-law and father-in-law told us that if they had to choose between the first grandchild and our wedding they’d choose the baby. Then his grandparents, his three aunts and two uncles and several cousins all said they wanted to be at the hospital for the baby. This family is incredibly close-knit and babies are a big deal for them. Then a bunch of their family friends got wind that these relatives weren’t attending and backed out as well.”

After having her baby shower on the very same day as the bridal shower, the sister-in-law scheduled her C-section for the date she set for her wedding. The bride knew this was not a coincidence because the sister-in-law had other options recommended to her by her doctor for the date of the C-section, but she chose to have it on the same day as the wedding.

When the sister-in-law asked if she was alright, the bride admitted that she was upset, and she had been avoiding her sister-in-law ever since. Many Reddit-users agreed with the bride, with one writing, “that was 100% intentional. Not sure how I would feel about the c section. Would need a lot more medical information. One doesn’t usually know they will need a c section in month 5.”

Another user wrote, “the doctor wanted to do the C-section (a few days later) but (the sister-in-law) demanded the (wedding day) so the baby would be born on a Saturday. Bizarre.”
