First: “If she could have it her way we would be married in a court house, because that’s what she did. Sorry, I’m a little more classy than that.” There is nothing inherently un-classy about a courthouse wedding. There are some very classy and beautiful courthouse affairs and some very not classy big, ballroom weddings. Just putting that out there.

That being said, it’s not your FMIL place to tell you what kind of wedding you should have, though it is a common dilemma. Usually the thing to do in those kind of situations is to enlist your FI to help you reign her in so that you don’t create tension between her and yourself.

What is not a typical problem is dealing with your FMIL as your MOH. I would go shopping and see if there’s a particular designer with the fabric type you like who can do a few different kinds of dresses. Maybe your MOH/FMIL could add a bolero or a jacket of some type over a dress if she doesn’t find anything quite her taste. Also, if she ends up in something different than the other BMs, better it be the MOH standing out instead of one of the BMs.

The best range of options I can find in a blue silk chiffon are actually at J Crew: http://www.jcrew.com/wedding/Wedding_Bridesmaid/silkchiffon.jsp?navLoc=left_nav’ defer=’defer.

I believe Alfred Angelo also sells that color, which you would be able to find in a salon, and I would try Nordstrom’s wedding suite.

@Jessica.Esser.WR:  Ugh, nothing worse than people judging whether you’re right for each other. Clearly, you’ve already made the decision together that you are, you know…hence the wedding. It sounds like they’re a little apprehensive about adding new people to the family, but again, I would speak to your fiance about it so he can stand up for the two of you with his family.

Here are some of the Alfred Angelo dresses in blue silk chiffon (you may need to go to the “color” tab and select the blue):

They have a ton of options actually, since most of their dresses come in all the colorways they have.

@Jessica.Esser.WR:  That’s very true. I’ve shared some things on here that I haven’t talked about with most people! It can be very cathartic.
