aw, that’s not very nice of her!

maybe she has negative associations with DIY, like thnks it’s only something people without class do or something? I have a friend who’s like that, and I’ve had to learn just not even to talk about it with her. Unfortunately not an option with your Future Mother-In-Law 🙁

I think your stuff looks great. And it’s personal, you’re getting it how you want, and probably saving money. Don’t be embarassed at all- I think it’s awesome.

I think that your DIY projects are beautiful!

Your Future Mother-In-Law is out of line to go over your head like that. Even if she thinks she’s being helpful, it’s really inconsiderate for her to disregard your talents and thoughts like she has.

I really wish I knew how to handle this, but I don’t..

..but you should know, your projects are amazing and I think they’re some of the best I’ve seen. 😀

They are awesome and you did a fantastic job!  Don’t forgo what YOU want just because someone else thinks it should be different.

I agree with everyone above!  This is YOUR wedding so it is your decision of what you want to do.  I think your DIY projects look great!

I think they are fabolous! I think you need to tell Future Mother-In-Law to stick it where the sun don’t shine. At least I would, and maybe you should talk to your Fiance about how his mother went over your head and behind your back and told someone else to make them for you, when you told her that you were going to make them before she ever called that other women (I forget how she’s related, Your Fi’s cousin right?) I would squah this now, because what happens next time you want to make something and you tell her, is she going to go over your head again?

I like that saying about the people who often turn up thier noses usually drown when it rains.

Oh, wait the wedding already happened, haha. Well oh well, maybe you should still talk to your Husband about it, because she could go over your head with anything, not just wedding stuff. Maybe you already did? Oh well, I hope your wedding was fabolous!

I hope your programs turned out exactly how you wanted & your Mother-In-Law got over everything.

There’s only ONE explanation: You Future Mother-In-Law has really bad taste!!!

(Either that or she’s been smoking crack. Your DIY projects are truly fab, and certainly very polished and professional-looking!)
