  • Wedding: December 2016

My Future Mother-In-Law lives on the other side of the world (how lucky, I hear you say?!) but honestly, I wish she was closer.  She’s the most lovely, generous lady and since we are getting married where she is from, she has been absolutely brilliant with taking the reins to help with bookings and planning-related things over there.  We have only met 2 times in the flesh so I can’t say I really know her as well as I would like to yet, but she has been nothing but kind to me.  We email each other every other day and my Fiance Facetimes with her and his Dad which I regularly butt in on to say hi ๐Ÿ™‚ I am excited about becoming part of their family!

  • Wedding: January 2016 - 1950s themed bar

Having never met me, my Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law let me stay with them for two weeks when Fiance and I were long distance. They also gave us money for a night out. Whenever we skype they say “love you both!” and recently for my birthday I received an amazing hamper from them with chocolate, bubbles, body potions and lotions, scented candle etc; neither of us knew it was coming. They have been so lovely and supportive and Future Mother-In-Law in particular is very excited because I think she’s keen for another daughter relationship. We don’t live in the same country but I have felt the love ever since day one. And she never gives advice on wedding stuff (yay!)

sorry guys, but I won this one.  (kidding!  we all win!)  my Future Mother-In-Law is awesome x1000.  I am vegetarian and she feels bad she doesn’t know vegetarian recipes so today she came over with one loaded on her phone, plus a cooler bag with all the ingredients, and made me dinner!!  my Fiance is out of town so she knows I’m just like, eating green smoothies for dinner lol.

for my birthday recently she and my Future Father-In-Law gave me a card that said “for a daughter in law” and they made reservations at the swankiest french restaurant in town.  after calling the restaurant to make sure they had vegetarian food for me!

we get along so well, we would totally be best friends if we had grown up together.  I adore her and she adores me and as my Fiance adores both of us, it all works out really well!

our wedding is really simple so she hasn’t really been involved but is definitely super supportive and happy about it.

I adore my future mother in law! She’s the best woman and we are currently living with them.. my Fiance has a 15 year old sister and it absolutely breaks my heart when my Future Mother-In-Law and her fight. She’s always so thoughtful and likes to sit and chat about anything at the end of the day. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just the absolute best along-side my own mom ๐Ÿ™‚

bananastand:  my mom was like… I got you some mixing bowls. Do you like her better? Lol. She also gave me the most amazing sapphire diamond set because “she prefers rubies these days and they deserve to be worn” umm… Wha? Okay by me! Happy to take all sapphires off your hands haha. She has two sons so loves spoiling her DILs.

themoonofhislife:  First of all = LOVE your username! 

Secondly, yes, want to take a minute and brag a bit too – my Future Mother-In-Law is a religious woman whereas I am not and my family is not and even Fiance is not. I was so worried- but we have grown close through out the wedding planning process and just in general. I love that feeling of being wanted and accepted, and someone actually appreciating that you love their son and that is enough. Even though the wedding is not a religious one as she is used to, she is being super supportive of what we want.
