After we got my mom’s MOB dress, I told FI’s mom I wanted to shopping with her next. She repeated to me, once again, that she wasn’t important and that she’d find something eventually but it wasn’t a big deal. I let it go but approached the issue again later after I had gone in to the tux shop and talked about what my dad was wearing. The manager there had asked when I was bringing in the FOG since my dad was all taken care of. And when I mentioned to Future Mother-In-Law about a tux she said “Well, I was just going to have FI’s dad wear his old blue suit.” Again, I asked her to go shopping.
Future Father-In-Law and Future Mother-In-Law, to me, are definitely my second set of parents. Throughout the last three years of my life they have been a very very large part of it, allowing me to live in their house when I had no where else to go, loving me like their own daughter, and sometimes treating me better than my own parents. I have a very close relationship with his mom and to me, it’s important that they feel confident and look amazing on our day, too, because I want then to be honored for all the hard work they’ve done for me. All the nights she’s stayed up talking to me when I’m upset about my family, etc. How do I convince her that this means a lot to me?
There will be pictures being taken all day, and I feel that all those who have had a major part in my life should be honored as well..I don’t feel like it’s just my day. What would you do?
