You can do whatever you want.  My MIL was the one who was at the ceremony with me beforehand because she knew how to bustle my dress.  And don’t feel bad that she didn’t buy a dress, she doesn’t have to wear a special dress as a mother, just a dress that makes her feel good!

I have heard of it being done many ways. Some girls are really close with their future MILs, so they want them there, whereas others maybe have a rough relationship or simply don’t know each other as well.

It sounds like she isn’t too into the whole wedding thing anyways, so that takes some pressure off because she probably doesn’t have any preconceived notions about what you SHOULD do. Do you want her there, or would you rather have the private time with your BMs and mom? Just make a decision and be confident in it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Are you not very close to her?  Maybe you could try spending some time alone with her?  She might feel awkward being out with you and your mom and being the third wheel.

I think you’ve done all you can to make her feel comfortable; you sound like you’re being very understanding and flexible about the situation. Just have your fiance talk with her and go with the flow with whatever she decides. It seems like she supports you guys, just in her own way.

My MIL wanted to spend the morning with her son, so she stayed with him the whole time and arrived with the groom/groomsmen and her husband. 

It’s totally up to you/her
