I just got married to the love of my life. I’ve usually gotten on pretty well with my new in-laws. Usually, my mother-in-law doesn’t wear perfume or at least not any that I’ve been able to notice. My wife had her mother be her matron of honor so she was standing with us upfront. It was a small area and with her right next to my wife, I was able to smell her perfume. Shortly after the ceremony started I started to get watery eyes and sniffles. Our ceremony was supposed to only last 20 minutes max so I thought I would just push through unless it got worse.

It didn’t get worse until after the ceremony when my new mother-in-law hugged me. Itchy eyes, itchy throat, and headache got added to the mix. My wife asked if I was alright and I told her I think her mother’s perfume was getting to me. We had someone go get some allergy medication. I took one but it didn’t do a whole lot and I started to feel out of it.

We Got to the reception and we started to take our photos, and I couldn’t do group photos with my mother-in-law in them. I told my wife we needed to figure something out because my symptoms weren’t letting up and I didn’t want to be out of it from taking more meds for our reception or have to leave our own reception. My wife asked her mom to keep some distance between us to try and make it easier for me. It didn’t really. That perfume followed her like a damn cloud. Then my wife asked her mom to try and wash wherever she dabbed her perfume but mother-in-law said she hadn’t dabbed it on, she spritzed herself so it was on her dress too. At that point they said they were out of ideas and there wasn’t anything we could do.

I said there was one more thing and suggested that maybe mother-in-law leave to change her dress and then come back or even just go to a nearby thrift store or something and get any kind of clothes, I’d even pay for them. I asked my mother-in-law to either please do that or to leave and we’d visit later with cake because it was getting to the point that I would have to leave.

My wife and mother-in-law objected to this because my wife wanted her mom there the whole time. I understand the day was big for my wife and she wanted her mother there and I wanted her there too but I wasn’t able to enjoy my own wedding. I wound up sitting outside with some of my family and groomsmen. I started to feel better and when I did, my wife came out and asked if I’d be going back inside then. I told her no so long as her mom was still there and hadn’t changed.

The night ended with my wife spending our wedding night at her parents’ house. Am I Wrong for asking my mother-in-law to leave?
