- Wedding: September 2015
Ohhhhh noooooo!! LOL. I don’t have any advice, but I’m absolutely certain that there aren’t really stores that sell gauchos anymore. Right?! RIGHT?!
Honestly, I find most things on “fashion week” awful, as does Future Mother-In-Law. She’s not wearing them because they’re “fashionable”, she’s wearing them because they’re comfortable.
AGAIN, I want her comfortable. Yes it’s her decision. I’m not “making” anyone match the wedding party. Mom and Future Mother-In-Law ASKED me what Id prefer, so I told them. I want her happy with what she wears now, 6 months from now and 10 years from now.
I’m surprised how many people care about this. If my Future Mother-In-Law shows up and is happy, I won’t care what she is wearing as long as it isn’t a long puffy white dress. I don’t understand thinking that it is appropriate to tell her what to wear or worrying that she will be embarassed. Tell her what others are wearing so she doesen’t misunderstand how the others will be clothed, but if she still chooses to wear the pants, who cares?
ugh this is something my Future Mother-In-Law would do… sorry, I have no advice.
I don’t get why it matters at all.
Heck, I did not even know what my Mother-In-Law was going to wear to the wedding until I walked down the aisle 😛 I would never have thought to stipulate any part of her outfit, including color.
I like gaucho pants when done well, and they are very much in fashion currently.
I had to Google ‘Gaucho Pants’ because I didn’t know what they were. I wanted them to be like MC Hammer pants (sorry). They are what I know as cullotes and they are back. They are the next big thing in fashion. I swear! I’m sure with a bit of guidance she will look fabulous. A lot of the UK department stores offer a personal shopper service. It’s free and you aren’t obliged to make any purchases, but the lady or gent in question will pull various outfits together and it’s always interesting to see what you dismiss out of hand on the hanger yet end up loving once you’ve got it on. I use this a lot for work outfits. I suggest you find out if this is an option and make a day of it for her.
Let her wear whatever she wants to wear.
My Future Father-In-Law wants to weat his John Deer hat. Sure. Who cares? You’ll look back in pix and laugh.
I agree with PP posters- she should wear what she is comfortable in, and if Gaucho pants are her thing- so be it! I had never even given thought to telling other people what to wear to my wedding until my mom asked- my response “Wear whatever you feel comfortable in, as long as you do not show up in my dress and wear it better than I do!” 🙂
I’m sure when the day comes, you probably will not even notice what everyone else is wearing at your wedding!
Best of luck!
