This sounds hilarious!  I am totally picturing your FMIL with spandex and a sweat band around her head running a 100 meter dash with a bolt of tulle in her hand!

I think some families – especially if they know a lot of people in town – are really into topping the last wedding b/c they know they’ll be the talk of the town!  It’s really silly, but if you don’t hate her plans, let her "run" with it!

I’d let her have at the decorating if you really don’t care how it looks. You might want to limit her to one bolt of tulle per Michael’s visit, though.

That is too hilarious! Luckily, my FMIL has a very hands off approach so far. Is what she is describing and envisioning fitting in with YOUR vision?

  • Wedding: October 2009

I have a family member whose getting married a few months after me & I feel the competition and brainstorming will start the second everyone gets a peak at my wedding in October – however, I am going for an intimate small sophisticated wedding and FH & I are older combined then the other couple – so it will be totally different scenes regardless – so I could care less! LOL! But yeah, everything I say it turns into a comparison to someone’s previous or future wedding – Im like, seriously, its my wedding & could care less about the other ones!

Some people are too funny! Oh well, if it makes her happy. Buy her the tulle and let her go to town!

I’m in the "whatever" category. The venue I booked does a complete wedding package, including flowers, cake, food, sound system, decorations, ice sculpture (!), everything. I just had to taste things and give them my colours and numbers. Other than that, I just have to show up. I’m a slacker bride, and proud of it.

People should do what matters to them; not to impress other people
