If I'm honest I thought my days of coming on here were over when we got married a little over two weeks ago, but I seem to be stuck in a ridiculous situation and don't really know what to do.
My MiL and I have a reasonable relationship but don't always see eye to eye. She's incredibly dramatic/emotional and is happy to through her toys out of the pram and can be incredibly hurtful if things don't go her way but I'd hoped this could all be put to one side for our wedding day.
In the weeks leading up to the wedding we tried to organise to meet up with her on numerous occassions but she was always too busy at the gym, with her partner etc. all the while my parents were bending over backwards to help with the finishing touches for the wedding, but I let it slide as I just couldn't be dealing with the drama on top of sorting everything for the wedding.
The day before our wedding we had access to our reception venue to set up. MiL had kindly agreed to help but when I arrived at the venue she completely blanked me and it was only after I'd mentioned being ignored that she finally spoke to me. Again I kept quiet as I knew she'd get upset if I asked what the issue was and didn't want to risk her saying she wouldn't come to the wedding or us having any bad feeling on the day.
Skip forward to our wedding day and she not only didn't speak to me but went as far as to walk away every time I went to speak with her. My OH spoke to her about it and apparently it's because she thinks I hate her - which a) i've never given her any reason to think this and b) should surely be how I'm feeling given she was going out of her way to avoid me!
On top of this I had my OH's brother's girlfriend walking around with a face like thunder all day, and even went as far as to walk straight past me when our guests were coming out of the church to speak to us at the end of our ceremony and then barged straight past me when we were on the dance floor in the evening. We've been fairly close over the last few months and she'd been texting me in the usual manner in the lead up to the wedding so I was completely thrown by her behaviour and to be honest, fairly hurt by it, though she's a lot younger than us so I wondered if it was a jealousy thing. As a result of this OH's brother barely spoke to us either.
Giving her the benefit of the doubt I text her a few days later to ask if she was ok as she hadn't seemed herself on the day and have still not had a reply from her.
I really don't know what to do as I've never been in this situation before and feel like I'm being put in an impossible situation. I really want to get to the bottom of this and get it sorted before it blows into something much bigger than it needs to be, but I genuinely have no idea what the issue is and don't know what the best course of action is, particularly as I'm still so hurt that they couldn't even be bothered to make the effort on our big day.
