So my FMIL got her dress for the wedding but she won’t tell me what it looks like. When I asked her she said it was a surprise. Seriously? Since when is it a surprise what the mother of the groom wears? Do most of you know what your FMIL is wearing?

I do. But thats strange that your FMIL is going to ‘surprise’ you. I would keep wondering…

I find that odd! Why is it a surprise? I have no idea what my FMIL is wearing but i have over a yr to go so i will probably find out in that time. I’m sure she’ll want to know what my mum is wearing..

My mom and her did talk and my mom told her exactly what she was wearing (a long blue dress). I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks it weird my FMIL won’t tell me what she is wearing.

I had no idea until she showed up at the wedding.
If the dress turns out horrible, it’s on her, not you.

I think it’s very weird. I would want to know even more if she wouldn’t tell me….lol Have you got a FSIL you could ask? That’s what i would do. If MIL wouldn’t tell me i would ask someone else that knew.

That is strange…. don’t understand why she would not tell you? So bizarre! Does she usually have good dress, if not I would try to find out from somebody else!!!

My FMIL has bought a hat for our wedding (even though it was super duper way too early to be buying things to wear to my wedding in 2011). I think she will be ridiculously overdressed. The only time people wear hats in Australia is to go to the races – which I am morally opposed to (the racing of horses, not hats).
I understand it’s a garden wedding but she will give herself hat hair and its going to look stupid because she can’t wear the hat to dinner – inside, where there will be no sun, beacuse it’s night time. I refuse to pay for her hair to be done if she wears that stupid hat.
Although I have resigned myself to the fact that she dresses like its still the 80s, honestly, there’s nothing I can do to change her. I just have to accept her as she is. She didn’t even let her daughter have a say in what she wore at her wedding a few years ago so I don’t hold much hope for me helping her choose what to wear to mine.
At least I get to dress her youngest daughter, my FSIL because she is my Junior Bridesmaid!

I have no idea what my FMIL is wearing except for the color. I really don’t care either haha. It will be fine.

In the end I don’t really care what she wears – It’s the fact that she wants to make it a surprise that I’m most curious about. I’m sitting here wondering whether its white, polka dots or something flashy?!!
