“Now, I’m going to be looking at her dress the whole day trying to find spots…”

On your wedding day that’s what you’re going to be concentrating on???  Can’t say I scrutinised anyone’s outfit on the day as I was just so happy.  It was more about getting married for me whereas its perhaps, for some brides, more about “the day”. Every bride is different though.  I’m not getting this at all.

I can understand where you’re coming from and may have been slightly irritated myself if I were in that same situation. I think she should have waited till after the wedding because of the potential of messing up the dress or she should have at least been considerate enough to taken better care of it during her photo shoot (e.g., not wearing it while getting her hair and makeup done).

I understand that you are upset.  But try to just let this go.  Pick your battles!

@MissLunchbox:  That’s what I thought too!  Just seems really strange to me, and at the risk of sounding really bitchy, something I would probably tell my friends about and have a chuckle.

@MississippiQueen:  Right?  I had no idea they were still around.  I’m picturing flashy purple background, denim jacket and hair super teased and curly.

I don’t think it sounds like she meant to upset you, but rather, she was being honest with you about a) having the photos taken; b) being excited enough about a dress to have said photos taken; and c) sharing the fact that it had to be taken to the cleaners.

Based on your post, I would assume that had she failed to tell you about the narrowly avoided dress mishap, you would have been equally upset, if not more…

I think you are failing to see the big picture…take a step back, take a deep breath and RELAX. This isn’t/shouldn’t be a big deal.

She probably was so proud to have a new nice dress for once  and wanted to pretty herself up and take pics, I think its a great idea and glad she got more use out of the dress then most people would.

Did anyone else immediately think of this:

Deb: Um, hello. Would you like to look like this? 

[holds out a photo
Napoleon Dynamite: [Napoleon takes the photo and looks at it] This is a girl. 
Deb: [Deb continues nervously] Because for a limited time only, Glamour Shots by Deb are 75% off.

From the title of this post, I thought she had pictures taken in YOUR dress or something like that, haha.

Her dress is not as important as yours. It’s also not as symbolic as yours. It’d be weird to wear your wedding dress around before the big day, but her dress, as nice as it is, isn’t that special.

Most of the times that I’ve known the origin of a MOB or MOG outfit, it’s something they’d worn before. (I guess this isn’t always the case?) At my friend’s wedding, her mom wore the same outfit to hers that she’d worn to both of her older brothers’ weddings; and it was perfect. So perfect it warranted an encore.

Perhaps you angry about other things, but like others i don`t see the big deal. I say let it go on wedding day if you worried about her dress and not the groom you missing the whole point of the day.

No one’s looking at the spots on your FMIL’s dress on your wedding. She said she got them out anyways. Move on, there are better things to concentrate on.

@JackiMoon:  

I kinda feel bad for her, because I feel like she doesn’t know these common sense things like don’t put on your outfit until your hair and makeup is done

really?! I feel bad for you because you dont seem to care how incredibly rude you sound talking like this about her all throughout this thread. sweet baby jesus!!!!!! she likes her dress. she wanted to feel pretty and take some fun photos for herself. And for fun, lets just say she did get spots on her dress (which she didnt in the end), people will be focused on you anyway on your wedding day. I cannot even believe this kind of thing took up so much of your attention that you even wrote a thread about it.
