Hey bees! I’m in need of some advice. My FMIL is notorious for inviting herself to things (dress shopping/bachelorette party) and now she has just assumed she will be getting ready with us. This being said..her young daughter (12) is part of the wedding party. So, now I have made all of our hair appointments together..and I know she is planning on coming to the bridal suite and getting dressed with us all too, even though her hotel is right down the street. So, I guess I am asking is this normal? Am I just being mean for not really wanting her there?

No. My mother in law got ready before she even came to the Church. My husband had to actually go pick her up because she does not drive.
Only me & my bridesmaids got ready together. My mom got my sister (flower girl) ready before she came because it was over an hour drive or right at & she was running late. My other flower girl got there way after my bridemaids did so she got ready alone with her mom & mamaw in the same area we did.

I actually invited her to join us, but she was more comfortable using her hair stylist and doing her own make-up. Plus she’d rather be with the boys anyway (particularly her grandson-our ring bearer). I have to say I was pretty happy she came to this decision. I love her to death, but she can drive you bat-shit crazy sometimes.

She did not get ready with us, but she had to also get my baby brother-in-law dressed and ready (he was the ring bearer), so that might be why. She only stopped in for about 5 minutes to grab her and her mother’s corsages.

I don’t think mine plans to, but I wouldn’t mind if she did. So long as there’s room in the hotel room!

I booked hair and make up for my FMIL, but worried she’d rather be with the boys. But since the wedding is nearing she has started to show excitement/interest in getting ready with all the girls and with the hair and make up artist I have hired.I actually thought it was normal that the MIL got ready with everyone else. I didn’t want to exclude her since my mother would be with us getting hair and make up done.
