I didnt think her husband would want to go dress shopping Fi would be begging me to let him stay home lol…  And I understand that she has plans for later that day (if she leaves early and dosnt like the dress you guys pick her fault) But when she is going to be going another hour away after the appointment I understand not wanting to go to a resturant close to home just to drive even farther…

What about if she has her husband bring a book and wait at a Starbucks or something?  I think it’s fair for you to ask her to go shopping with you, but at the same time understand that she doesn’t want to burn a whole day that she gets with her husband for your wedding stuff.  Your dissapointment is understandable, but the situation she is in sounds rough and I would try to be accomidating of that.

My idea is the same as PP , have her hubby busy himself elsewhere while you guys look for dresses and they can meet up afterward

That’s being pretty selfish on their part.  It’s starting to sound more like it’s not that they’re in a tough situation, but that they’re one of those weird couples that always have to know exactly what the other is doing.  Is that true at all? 

I think it’s completely okay to insist that he do something else while you’re in the salon.  Maybe even give him money to go get something to eat or whatever.

It sounds like there’s more bothering you than this one situation, which I get… but that’s her husband and you really can’t expect him to sit at a starbuck’s in exile while you girls are down the street getting dresses. If he’s too much of a pain in the ass just try to just get her dress squared away and then take care of everything else after the fun police are gone…

sorry your brother in law is so demanding, that can’t make wedding planning very easy

I have experienced something a little similar to this, and I have to say, it is ridiculous.  What kind of man actually wants to tag along for dress shopping?  Sounds like a real stick-up-ass guy, to me!  My step-cousin’s Fiance is like this.  He doesn’t actually go dress shopping with us, but he goes everywhere else.  For instance, step-cousin came and picked me up to go with her to get her dress altered a month ago.  When she picked me up, her Fiance was in the car.  We then had to drive him home before we could go to the bridal shop.  He had to ride with her all the way to my house, then get taken home, so we could all the way back past my house to go the bridal shop.  The same thing happened again, Monday.  The whole time step-cousin and I were together, her Fiance texted.  I can’t stand couples like that!  People need to learn to develop their own identities, and realize that it is okay to be apart for five damn minutes!
