    This is what I am afraid of

    We had lots of lookie loos at our wedding ceremony, some who we didn't know! One of my bridesmaids grandma came, because she really wanted to see her granddaughter all dressed up. I thought it was sweet personally but I had nearly 300 people at my wedding so didn't really notice.

    there are more instances such as insisting I get dd1 a passport while I was 7 months pregnant so she could take her on her first overseas holiday. Me being so pregnant meant I wouldn't have been able to go. Like hell I was getting that passport.

    If MIL were to go I can only see her trying to be possessive of dd1 and dd2. going by past experiences.

    Hmm thats a tough one! At first I would have said meh whats the harm but now you have further explained the situation (especially your sister being preg and off her meds) I would definitely lay the hard word on your MIL and tell her under no circumstances is she to come. I can completely understand that she wants to see your DD all dressed up and looking adorable but with your sister off her meds who knows how she would react to it on the day. My only suggestion would be maybe talk to your sister's DF?

    Goodluck with this I hope it all goes well for you

    I think it's pretty poor form. I'd say she should wait for the photos.

    I see no problem with people going to the ceremony. The reception needs to be invite only, but I actually think your sister is the weird one for making a fuss about x,y and z wanting to watch the ceremony. It doesn't cost her a cent to have your mil watching and I tend to agree with your mil that she won't even notice she is there.

    Oh, okay, sorry. Missed all the extra information. So really this is a Very unique case considering your sisters medical background and your mil. Not a simple situation for your family in this instance, but in response to your original question...yes...it is okay for people to go to wedding ceremonies uninvited. In your situation your mil prob needs to respect your sisters fragile state.

    I think it depends on each persons cicumstances differently. We had the parents of our groomsmen/ bridesmaids come to our ceremony who were not invited, and I actually though it was nice to see them. Weddings are expensive, and although I woldve loved to invite everyone I knew, couldnt afford it, so it was nice to see some ppl who werent invited come to the ceremony. (but I knew them and I liked them! So I guess it depends on how your sister feels about your MIL in general.

    Could you invite mil over to watch dd get ready? And say that it's strictly invite only?
    I went to a wedding I wasn't invited or welcomed to earlier in the year. My ds was page boy, I stayed up the back, i was polite but not intrusive.
