@lucyh2bee: i’d thank them for the thought but tell them that your parents have already gotten you your wedding jewelry. if they get you something anyways, just thank them again and wear it to the rehearsal dinner or for bridals or something.

@lucyh2bee:

It doesn’t sound like hinting is working for you. I think you need to tell your Future Mother-In-Law, nicely of course, something like “My parents really want to buy my wedding jewelry and I already told them ages ago that they could. I’m so sorry I didn’t tell you sooner, I never expected that you and Future Father-In-Law would offer to do this too, you’ve been so generous already!” and invite her to come with and help pick it out.

Simple. Have your parents get it for you, accept what the IL’s get you graciously, and wear theirs on your Honeymoon (and let them see pictures). Would they really make a stink on your weddng day if you don’t use what they gave you?

I also like the wearing it at the Rehearsal Dinner idea too!

Wear theirs to the rehearsal dinner. That is what I did with the jewellry my parents got me because I wanted to wear my own and it worked like a charm!

@lucyh2bee:

How much is this jewelry? Maybe they’d like to host a small rehearsal dinner instead? I believe that’s traditionally the right of the groom’s parents anyway?

@lucyh2bee: Do you have more than one dress for that day? Maybe you can wear one set for the wedding and the other for the reception
