I dont think this is a big deal.  She is obviously so in love with the dress ans wants to wear it as much as possible… its her dress and i dont think her getting pictures has anything to do with your wedding

I think it’s incredibly sweet that your Mother-In-Law is excited and got professional pics. How does this affect you? Are you worried she will set up a huge pic of herself at the wedding? Or that she will send the pics of herself to everyone? I don’t see what the big deal is…  It doesn’t make sense to me.

@GracieFaith:  OMG could you imagine?

Hopefully the spots aren’t that bad. I just know you are going to be too busy enjoying and soaking in your day to look for the spots. I can totally understand why it frustrates you though that better care wasn’t taken of the dress. 🙁

why is this bothering you so much? 

your fmil is excited that she finally got a dress that she loves.  something that she has never had.  she chose to capture that moment for herself.  good for her.

you should embrace the fact that she is happy.  don’t waste negative energy on this.  let it go.

I agree with PPs. I don’t understand why you’re so upset. So she wore the dress before the wedding? So what? How does that affect you at all? I would just be glad that she likes her dress so much she wanted pictures. And I’m sure she didn’t intend to get spots on it, but she got it cleaned so what’s the problem there? If she had to replace it that would be on her, not you, so again, how does this affect you at all? And why in the world would you spend your wedding day looking for spots on your FMIL’s dress? It’s your wedding day. You’ll have other things going on. It’s not like it’s your dress. Chill out. I don’t think it’s a big deal at all. I don’t even think it’s a little deal. Definately not worth your stress.

It really dosn’t seem that there is much of an issue here. If it’s really this hard for her to find a dress think of how happy she probably is that she found one that looks good on her!

Would it not have been worse for her to show up at the wedding with spots on her dress or in a different dress, and never let you know what happened? Oh man I can se it now! “MIL and I shopped for HOURS for that dress and she showed up in a different dress and OMG HOW RUDE SHE HATES ME!!!!”

I guess I’m kind of the minority here, but I think what your Future Mother-In-Law did wasn’t so much mean/inconsiderate but it was really, really weird. Maybe she needed to feel beautiful but I think getting glamour shots of yourself, alone, in a fancy dress is strange. At least she’s excited to wear it??

I don’t see the problem?  Mabey the email was to just give everyone a headsup incase there was noticeable spots.

No really… Seriously?

If I expressed my actual opinion about this post, I’d get banned.

Amen on the overreation. She’s probably telling you to BOND with you. Perhaps it’s not the most appropriate of subjects but really- it’s not a big deal.
