A bride has been advised that she needs to cut contact with her mother-in-law after she attempted to ruin her wedding.

Getting married (should) be a joyous occasion, as you prepare to settle down with the love of your life.

But marriage isn't just about two people because it involves two entire families coming together.

While that sounds good on paper, sometimes the in-laws can be a bit of a headache... and you just have to grin and bear it.

Well, one bride has taken to Reddit to explain a chaotic situation that she encountered with her mother-in-law (MIL).

"My MIL is the type of person who loves attention, whether it is bad or good, and cannot stand when someone else has the spotlight," the post began.

In the build-up to the wedding, the mother-in-law wanted to wear a "very light beige/white lace dress," which she was soon told not to by the groom.

This appeared to open a can of worms as she began saying that she was no longer going to attend the wedding and that her son shouldn't marry the Redditor.

The MIL and father-in-law paid for the rehearsal dinner, and she ensured that everyone knew about it in her speech, and allegedly mentioned it to anyone who would listen.

"In her speech she blamed me for my husband not calling as frequently once we met & that she has lost her son to me," the post added.

According to the bride, her MIL went on to ruin the wedding photos by complaining that there weren't enough of her and her son, and then argued that the whole process was taking too long.

The post went on: "At the start of the ceremony she thanked my husbands side sitting for supporting my husband as 'his side was light' due to the fact of her forcing us to invite distant relatives & 30+ didn’t show.

"Now to the mother & son dance - she had everything choreographed with twirls and romance which was absolutely odd. During all speeches she talked extremely loudly and complained when my dad was 'taking too long'”.

The following morning the bride's mother and father graciously hosted a brunch and invited all the guests to come and eat, but her MIL spent the entire time complaining about the wedding.

"She then hissed at my mom for 'not enough food being there for her family' as my mother is slaving over the stove. My husband had told her to stop 4x until she said 'bad news, no more food!' when new guests had arrived (there was an island full of food).

"I turned quickly and said 'enough please' as my mother is almost in tears. My husband says 'mom you’re being insulting' while whispering in her ear away from everyone."

She then left and went home, but not before telling anyone who would listen that she had been "banished" and was told to "shut up".

"Next morning, my husband goes to speak with her and she rips him around by his face saying their relationship had forever changed and that she’s lost a son and it was because of me," the bride wrote.

People flooded the comments with their views, as one person wrote: "This is her wedding gift to you. Showing everyone on both sides how patient you have been and how she acts."

A second said: "I would be NC (no contact) immediately. SO (significant other) needs to start shutting her down faster and more efficiently. No rug sweeping. No that is just how she is."

A third person suggested: "The good news is that you’re not actually stuck with her. You don’t have to have a relationship with her in any way. Make plans to see the rest of his family without her. In five years, renew your vows and have a new wedding without her."
