Wow, you are so not out of line for asking her not to say anything. It’s your dress, you don’t want your Fiance to see it until your wedding day, and it is completely unbelievable that she has told him about your dress twice. I’m so sorry this has happened, but hopefully your Fiance didn’t get a good look at the picture or won’t remember it too well. In any event, I’m sure he’ll be surprised on your big day; he’s never seen you in the actual dress, and I’m sure you’ll take his breath away!

Wow, that’s annoying!  No, you are not out of line.  But I would take this as a lesson as to not tell her anything anymore that should be a surprise.  The first incident should have been the last, and now she has proven to be unreliable with keeping things mum.

Well you now know one thing with certainty. Your Future Mother-In-Law can’t keep a secret. Don’t ever again tell her anything you want kept confidential. She can’t keep her yap shut!

Don’t show her anything anymore! Either she just gets too excitied and forgets that your Fiance is there, or she’s doing it on purpose. Either way, don’t show her anything else that you want as a suprise.

Uhhhh….I guess she just wants to share in your happiness?

The good thing about men is they have a poor ability to remember/invision and put together fashion. Even the ones who are good at fashion are only good if its RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM.

I’ve shown my Fiance a picture of my dress on the model, I’ve talked about it infront of friends. I know if I quizzed him now the only thing he could tell you about it is that its lace & has straps…which it does. BUT he in no way has a vision of me in that dress in his head.

I’m sure your Fiance will be incredibly surprised and happy to see you in your dress on your wedding day. Even if Future Mother-In-Law decides to take him to the shop and visit your dress (which they won’t let her do thank god) he will still be in awe when its on you.

In the mean time no more dress talk with Future Mother-In-Law 😉 get her involved in the suits or something lol

She is so lame.  I would not tell her ANYTHING.AT.ALL!!! Except, maybe that you changed your mind on that dress 😉  and nothing more about your wedding or your life!!

That indeed is quite annoying. However, you can just think of what happened as a lesson. After all, it might just be force of habit for her. Like Tickles pointed out, you can simply keep things which you want to be a surprise a secret from her. That way, nobody will feel hurt.
