Is she local to where the shower was held?

My Mother-In-Law wasn’t local and there were other reasons why she didn’t come but I do think it is weird that they don’t come, especially if you get along. 

Try not to let it put a damper on your day though.

My Mother-In-Law didn’t attend mine either. She said that it was only for my young friends. I told her that wasn’t the case, but nothing changed. I was sad at first, but it’s no biggie.

I’m glad you aren’t letting it get you down.  That does seem weird but just take it for what it is.

My Mother-In-Law (who I love and get along great with) didn’t come to my “Bridal brunch” that my bridesmaids threw for me. I could tell she felt a little uncomfortable with hanging out with my friends who she doesn’t really know so when she asked me about it, I gave her an out. I don’t think it’s too odd and I’m not offended, I prefer her to be comfortable and not force her to be in unfamiliar territories that may make her feel awkward.

I think my Future Mother-In-Law would be uncomfortable with all of my young friends, my mom knows them all but I doubt that my Future Mother-In-Law will come (I will invite her of course) but I won’t be offended when she chooses not to come. I would not stress about it!
