Godzilla bride

One of my good friend's brother had his wedding this weekend. Weddings are meant to be a good day of celebration and unity. I always believe that when you marry someone, you don't just marry 1 person, you marry the entire family.

That is what happens and you can't just say "No, not interested in getting to know your parents, siblings, cousins etc..."

Apparently there were some tensions between the family and the bride. I was appalled at the audacity of the bride and the disrespect that she is showing.

1. Your in-laws went to all the trouble of selecting the fabric and made a wedding dress and prepared all the jewellery to go with it. Bride says that she won't wear the jewellery but will wear the dress. The day came and she did not wear it. Considering that she probably needed to only wear it for like 10 minutes even if she didn't really like it, that was really inconsiderate. I mean, a lot of effort was put into that dress.

2. Wedding cards were printed with the bridegroom's name before the bride. She went and got all the cards reprinted again. Now, I don't know if it is the male or female's name that is meant to be written first according to tradition. But if it has already been printed, do you really need to spend more $$$ on this? Weddings are not cheap!

I'm wondering...

Can you as one of the families actually make a fuss at the wedding?
What do you do with a Godzilla bride?

How dare the in-laws choose anything for the bride - it is her day. They should show her some respect and let her choose her own wedding dress and jewellery. I hope they don't try to control their whole life like that.
