Definitely! Make her feel special about it. Tell her the mother of the groom must look SPECIAL and DISTINGUISHED and you want to help her pick the best dress!
This happened to a lady I work with..her son is having a casual wedding. She actually bought 3 dresses, got the bride’s ok, and sent the other two back. She was very happy to get the bride’s approval, and I think most FMILs are in that respect.

What about finding a few choices online and sending Future Mother-In-Law the links? You could say something like, “I was just browsing the other day and saw a few things that would look lovely on you for the wedding.” that way, she will see what you had in mind and might be able to use your suggestions as a guide. Or, has your mom found her dress yet? I had my mom email my Future Mother-In-Law a picture of her dress.

i’ve been thinking about taking fmil shopping when she gets to town before the wedding! only downside.. which makes me very sad because she only has one child now, my fh, and she is severly obese and i’m affraid we won’t be able to find something(even thought lane bryant online had some adorable sun dresses!).. so maybe make a bonding experience when she gets to the states and go shopping!!

I’d find some inspirations or some examples of what you think would be appropriate and pass them along.

In other words, I agree 100% with Miss Root.
