She was unable to develop a great friendship with her fiancé’s mother, which is not entirely unusual. When she spotted her potential mother-in-law performing the unbelievable months before the wedding day, though, things took a turn for the worse!
Not Getting Along
Tracey went on Reddit to chat about the bizarre encounter she had months before getting married in Colombia at her next stop. Often, with Gina, her potential mother-in-law, she found it tough to see eye to eye.
She Was Caught
Through their disagreements, she still struggled to be the stronger guy, no matter what, but she couldn’t believe what she saw the elderly woman doing in her wedding gown… are you able to find out what it was?
Made For Each Other
It is definitely in the best interest to see your in-laws in a stable and safe partnership. Tracy hoped to reconnect with her future mother-in-law, particularly when Rick popped up the question after she said “yes”.
Help From Family & Friends
Everyone understands that it is important to arrange weddings properly, so a lot of pressure always builds up especially to the bride. The support of friends and family normally keeps some of the tension away from the pair.
Not How They Expected
When you glance at the images on social media of Tracey and Rick, you would assume they’re a match made in heaven. They were prepared to start a future together before it all fell apart in just a snap…
Her Couture Wedding Dress
It is incredible that in this insane story, a wedding dress acted as the final straw, but that was what happened anyway. Of course, for the wedding day, this bride decided to have the most exquisite marriage outfit.
She Went Big
She wanted to go large and then get a gown from a designer fashion atelier named Galia Lahav. It was the location where Beyonce and other A-listers had dresses of their own, so it’s not shocking seeing that it cost her $11,000!
The Perfect Day
While this is a lot of money, because it’s one of the most crucial days of their lives, many brides see it as only appropriate. To finance their dream outfit, many individuals take out loans and even second mortgages on their houses!
A Destination Wedding
There is nothing more enticing to certain couples than the thought of getting married next to their house. In Colombia, though, Rick and Tracey were willing to bind the knot. “In her post, she explained, “We are hoping to be married in Colombia in December and, of course, I’m beyond pumped.
She Wasn’t Happy
“It’s going to be a wedding destination for us, and I was very pleased that I was able to talk to him about having one.” There was one guy, though, who was not fond of the proposal…
She Did Not Approve
Gina was swift to convey her rejection of the plan of getting married anywhere so far. Gina did not grasp, according to Tracey, that they chose to move to a spot where “no one… speaks English.”
In addition, she shared her worries regarding the extent of protection in Colombia as well as the costs that it will take. Tracey was not persuaded that she was overly worried about the logistics of the wedding, even though she had some legitimate questions about the proposal.
They Did Not Get Along
Tracey could not help but wonder that regardless of whether they had it, Gina may not have been on track with the ceremony. She realized in the end that they both weren’t getting along very well. The bride wrote, “I always knew she was not really my biggest fan.”
Didn’t See Eye-To-Eye
“She is polite and very ‘false’ friendly.” It appears, though, that it was not only a case of disconnection. There was an immense dilemma that pulled a wedge between these two women. So, what has it been?
A Territorial Mother
It seems like, because of the dynamics they had with Rick, there was friction between Tracey and Gina. In his lifetime, his mother and fiancee became the two most significant people. Tracey felt his mother had been behaving differently with him.
A Weird Relationship
“She’s going to do things like sit on the lap of my fiancé, or tuck his hair behind his ear, and cut off his food for him,” she said. “I actually saw her feeding him on one occasion……in public.”
Setting Their Boundaries
It was so normal that before the day of the wedding, Tracey needed to figure this out. It was a positive thing because after Tracey spoke to Rick about it, Gina lowered her strange conduct.
Trying To Ignore Her
After this, the bride tried hard to hold Gina as far as possible out of the wedding preparations. However, Tracey claimed that “she complains to my fiance behind my back on how she’s being excluded.” It all came to a head on one particular day.
Changing It Up
Since Tracey told Rick about how his mother was acting, he knew that it was time to chat about it with Gina. He was, as you can tell, between a stone and a hard spot.
Maybe Things Will Improve
He realized, in the end, that it was necessary for him to step up if he wanted anything in the future to move smoothly. To the praise of my fiance, when I told him that I thought it was beyond strange, it never happened again,” said Tracey.”
Leading Up To It
The day that had changed everything about them began on a relaxed tone. Gina had just come over to see their new place. Since this new home meant a new chapter in their lives, both Tracey and Rick were happy to show her around.
Gina did not applaud them, though, and had only harsh words for the pair, in particular for Tracey. The bones she had to choose with the younger lady, if we believe the Reddit article, were totally uncalled for.
Bashing Her Ring
What was the very first concern about Tracey from Gina? It was the ring of marriage used by Rick during his proposal to her. It was clearly over-the-top, as far as his mom was concerned.
Tracey then told her that it was Moissanite, which made it even more affordable than a diamond. “Tracey said to everyone, “She hates my engagement ring. “It’s far too extravagant, and CHILDREN STARVING IN AFRICA AND PEOPLE DIE FOR THESE ROCKS (moissanite) are here.”
Complaining About The House
Let us know what else she was going to have to complain about. She did not have nice words to tell about the house that they purchased, much like the bell. Tracey spoke of how Gina could not realize that so much money was being expended on it.
She Won’t Stop
“Tracey, however, defended their actions by saying that it was a “townhouse” that they got at a knock-off price, according to her, “It is an expensive show of luxury and really ‘is not us.’ This was not also the last one, though.
Kindly Lose Some Weight
This next piece of critique will actually have been the final straw for certain persons. The fact that Tracey remained cool and held quiet was a positive thing. Gina then called her out and instructed her to lose a few pounds before the wedding day for her weight gain.
Throwing It In Her Face
“Tracey was sensible in the post and recounted, “I’m becoming fat. I need to look at the calories so that I can fit into my shirt. In the meantime, Future[MIL] is boasting about her food and how trendy and slim her mother is with the bride outfit.
Not The First Time
While Tracey was overwhelmed by these blunt phrases, it wasn’t the first time that Gina had thrown any shade at her. While Rick’s mother would attempt to stay in touch with the young lady from time to time, she would also criticize different items about her.
She Can’t Win
It was apparent that her potential mother-in-law did not agree with Rick’s flourishing relationship. Tracey was able to see that Gina tried to make her the sort of woman she wanted for her son. So she was trying to control Tracey at all costs.
Leave Her Alone
It was a positive thing that Rick saw how things were getting out of hand between his mother and fiancée. Then he begged Tracey to “help him put the bed together in the spare guest room.”
The Moment She Couldn’t Believe
She was glad for the chance to keep Gina from further insulting her, so Tracey went to the room willingly and left behind Gina. But this young lady got the scare of her lifetime when, about half an hour after that time, she went to the master bedroom…
Caught In The Act
Tracey had gone to her bedroom to take a rest from the shower, but she couldn’t believe the sight that awaited her there. Gina finds herself putting on a wedding robe! “She said, “What am I going to see except Future MIL trying to yank my dress off her head BUT WAS FREAKING STUCK?
She Nearly Fainted
“What the heck?!” I blurted out! ‘And she began to stammer suddenly,’ Oh my Goodness! God! Oh my God! GOD! My GOD! ” If you don’t think that’s insane enough, wait before you know what happened after this.
She had absolutely no patience for what she was staring at to be processed. She rushed over to Gina and ordered her to get out of the dress of Galia Lahav at that very moment. The older lady, though, was not able to get it off! Tracey has been working to help her come out of it.
She Had No Choice But To Help
“She said, “My number one worry at that stage was her ripping the sheer backing of my dress, so I ran over to assist her.” Stuff went very, very wrong for the two of them…
Torn And Dirty
It took an intense and hopeless fight for them to get it away from her. Unfortunately, when she saw what had happened to him, Tracey was shocked. “It was all for the sake of not being able to scratch her way through the back of the dress and destroy the sheer material completely,” she said.
It Was Ruined
“She broke the dress’s side zipper and got a dirty imprint on the train.” We can’t really fault her for the unbelief and anger she was experiencing at the moment. Then she switched to Gina, wondering why she was doing it.
At A Loss For Words
It should not come as a surprise to learn that after watching this, Tracey failed to talk. Since realizing what happened to her coat, she was just able to cup her head between her hands and choke back a cry.
A Step Too Far
Gina had caused her too much grief before, that yet for her, this was a step too far. She did not imagine that anything like this was really done by her. Let’s see what Gina was meant to suggest regarding the issue that Tracey asked…
Making Sure It Fits
Tracey was confused and asked to explain that Gina was going to pull such a prank. “She said she was just trying to make sure the dress would fit me, because if the dress fit her, then it would fit me completely, too,” she said.
This Wasn’t An Excuse
If it won’t suit her, so I definitely had to make more effort.” Obviously, it was already tried on by Tracey.” The dress was just perfect for her. What did Rick have to suggest after having found out about this?
Feeling Very Disturbed
Tracey isn’t the only one “very upset” about what had just happened to her. Rick felt overwhelmed by the behavior her mother showed. Especially because I doubt that she was really going to try on her dress for fun…
She said, “I think [she] was actually trying to pretend she was the bride… There was also a bouquet of dried flowers on the bed that wasn’t there before,” she said, Which is so false for so many reasons.” Can you believe that this was not the worst thing Gina did?”
Covering The Repairs
At least Tracey hoped that Gina will agree to pay the losses she incurred. Nevertheless, it appears like her standards were far too high for her potential mother-in-law. You’re not going to believe what your fiancé’s mother did next.
Something Up Her Sleeve
She wrote, “She hasn’t volunteered to compensate for all of the repairs to the outfit. A portion of the train has been broken away,’ she added. “I have no idea how much it is going to cost until tomorrow I can get to the seamstress.” And after her reluctance to pay for it, on that fateful day, Gina had something more up her sleeve.
At least, you would have assumed that Gina would feel some regret about what she had achieved. She told the young lady, instead, that she wasn’t supposed to invest that much on her gown anyway.
Time To Act
For now though, she’s lecturing me about wasting too much money on a wedding dress instead of an apology,” Tracey said, “Clearly the difficulty she had in fitting into the dress was an indication of getting something less dramatic and ostentatious.” She decided it was time to come up with a plan.”
Hearing From The Public
Obviously upset by what had just happened, she yet again took to Reddit. She began worrying about seeking civil action against Gina, but she needed to know what other people were thinking about it. She was looking forward to hearing from the audience.
Asking For Compensation
It looked like she might get reimbursement about what the elderly lady had done to her, for her. I know this is just a dress,” she said, “but it goes beyond a dress. There were several online users who shared their support for this initiative.
