When it comes to weddings, it's understandable for the bride and groom to want everything to go perfectly.
And since ceremonies aren't the cheapest things, we can see why families will do what it takes to make it affordable.
Two brides are currently hoping to save money when it comes to their white wedding gowns.
The women discovered their sister had helped make a dress for her best friend's big day as she had no money.
And now the two sisters are hoping the woman will do the same for them – since they are family at the end of the day.
But the woman is not a fashion designer and isn't keen on repeating the stressful process again.
Unsure of how to confront her relatives, the woman penned a letter to Slate.com's Dear Prudence.
"I am crafty. In an act of hubris and love, I agreed to DIY my best friend's wedding dress since she had no budget.
"It took £76, a dozen thrift stores, 100 hours, and a pint of blood, but I was able to convert an '80s monstrosity into a modern frock.
"She got married and bragged about me on social media, but now everyone is expecting me to do the same for them!"
The woman went on to say how her half-sister and stepsister are both getting married around the same time.
She detailed: "They're borderline bridezillas. My half-sister lives in another state and wants me to hand-sew her dress via Zoom.
"My stepsister has sent me pics that far extend my skills."
And the dress saga is also causing an issue among her family as she claims her stepmother is "borderline hysterical".

She added: "I am proud of what I did, but I share a house with my friend and her husband.
"There is no way I could do what I did with someone far away. And I don't want to again.
"I love my family but I am hanging up the needle and thread. Help!"
When the columnist read the situation, the response was very straight to the point.
Prudence replied: "You do not need my help! You know what you need to do, which is say no.
"You are prepared to say no, you're aware that you have to say no, and you're going to say no. And it's going to be fine."
The columnist added that the sisters were making "unreasonable demands".
And the woman shouldn't worry as she "did not promise anything to anyone else" when she made her friend's dress.
