The bride penned a lengthy post on Reddit revealing she had previously refused money from her fiancé’s mother in exchange for trying on the dress ahead of the wedding.
However, her mother-in-law was so determined that she tried it on while thinking that she was at work.
The bride said her family thinks she’s risking her marriage by now threatening to share photos of her fiancé’s mom wearing the dress.
She wrote: “My FMIL [future mother-in-law] kept pestering me about trying it on but I firmly refused.
“I finally shut it down after she offered me $100 to let her try it on.
“Her reasoning for persisting so much? She says it’s because of her ‘love’ for wedding dresses and her obsession with them.
“Fast forward to yesterday, I came home from work early and I found my fiancé at home.
“He freaked out after seeing me and tried to prevent me from going into my room while trying to text somebody on his phone.
“I opened the door and was shocked to see his mom standing there wearing my dress. I instantly pulled out my phone and took a photo of her in it.
“She and my fiancé freaked out after I told her that she needed to pay me for a new dress in three days or else I’d show the whole family the photo.”
The bride said her mother-in-law left the house in floods of tears while her fiancé accused her of overreacting.
She continued: “I refused to listen to him because, in my opinion, the dress should only be worn by the bride and the bride only.
“Quite frankly, I felt disgusted looking at the dress again, I don’t want it anymore.
“And so I think it’s fair that she pays me after she ruined it for me.
“He yelled at me and told me to wake up and stop treating his mom like that as if she was an enemy.
“We had a fight after he failed to get me to back down and he’s been staying with his mom since then.”
The woman said she worked hard to save the $3,000 she spent on the dress but now can’t look at it without feeling awful.
She added: “People in my family think I’m escalating things and risking my relationship with not only FMIL [future mother-in-law] but my fiancé as well. AITA [Am I the a**hole?]
Commenters reassured the bride that her reaction was justified but also advised her to reconsider going ahead with the wedding.
One person wrote: “NTA [not the a**hole], but are you sure you want to marry this guy?
“He stood guard outside your bedroom so that his mother could try on your wedding dress.
“Do you think he will ever stand up for you against her?”
Another said: “NTA [not the a***hole] but honestly don’t ask for money.
“He stood guard while his mom tried on your dress, you really wanna get stuck in a relationship like this?
“Show the photo to everyone, cancel the wedding, and dump his a**. You deserve better than that.”
A third added: “NTA [not the a**hole]. But your problem is not your MIL [mother-in-law], it’s your fiance.
“He knew your point. He let his mom try on your dress. He tried to hide it from you.
“He yelled at you. He tried to blame you. You need to postpone everything until this is worked out.
“Do you want to be #2 for the rest of your married life? Because that’s what you are now. Your fiance’s mommy is #1. You are #2. If that.
“And, BTW, it’s real creepy for your fiancé to see his mom in your wedding dress. The dress his sexual partner will be wearing. Eeww.”
A fourth chimed in: “Throw the dress and the man away. Both are tainted. NTA [not the a**hole].”
Another wrote: “NTA [not the a**hole]. Get your money and THEN break up with your fiancé. It won’t end well.
“He’s shown where he puts his loyalty. I’m sorry you are going through this.”
