My wedding is getting really close. Its about 2 months away. I went with both my mom and future MIL to help them pick out a dress for them to wear. The wedding is at 5pm at a country bed and breakfast. Even though its in the country and we’re having BBQ wearing something nice like you would wear to church should be expected. Only the men will be wearing jeans and they will be dark very nice jeans with belt buckles as it is western themed. But I feel only the men should wear jeans. My mom got a nice pantsuit and my MIL is wearing a floral print dress. My stepmother and I don’t talk much at all. However having just recently attending my grandmother’s funeral with her I wonder if I should speak to her. At my grandmother’s funeral she wore a jean skirt and flip flops!! Everyone was talking about her. She really has no clue how to dress. At my cousin’s wedding a few years ago she was dressed in a dress that looked like a housecoat. It looked so trashy. I really don’t care what she wears as its not a reflection on me. It just makes her look like the trashy one. Should I just let her wear whatever she wants which very well may be too casual. Should I say something about no jeans for women? She and I don’t have the type of relationship where I could tell her how she needs to dress fancier without her getting offended. Should I tell my dad to speak to her? Or just let her show up in a jean skirt and look totally out of place at my wedding. Part of me does not want to tell her a thing as I don’t feel it should be my job to tell others how to dress. I went shopping with my mom and MIL just so their colors wouldn’t clash. But they were free to pick whatever they wanted.
