Buy one for her. If she hates shopping, she’ll thank you for it.

I’m glad I’m not alone here…I consider myself the furthest thing from a control freak but my wedding is 7 weeks away and my mom hasn’t expressed the slightest interest in a MOB dress. I guess my concerns stem from the fact that she has notoriously worn “blouses” (a t-shirt with some lace/beads/or sequin detail somewhere) leggings or casual cotton/polyester dresses to “dress up” for graduations, weddings, fancy restaurants, etc in the past. Every time I bring up the MOB dress subject she states that she intends to lose weight and wants to wait until closer to the wedding. I suppose I am secretly terrified that she’ll show up with one of her usual super casual outfits. My Future Mother-In-Law bought her dress months ago – I guess I expected my mother to be more excited about finding a dress too.  The closer the wedding gets the more worried I am about my mother grabbing another t-shirt off the rack somewhere.

That’s too bad! My mom was so excited she bought her dress before I’d even tried any on!
