Is she trying to control everything or is she just excited and wanting to be involved?

Also does she have a daughter? If not this could explain why she is wanting to stick her nose into it.

At the end of the day it is your choice as to how much you want her to get involved…I think it is lovely if she gets to come with you to see your dress fitting. Other than that maybe your could offer her some small jobs to do (help with invites or crafty things?).

If she is trying to control everything and is being a b*&ch about it, then I would just tell her that you want everything to be a surprise and that no one is going to know any information.

Sorry to hear she is causing issues.


My Future Mother-In-Law wants to see pictures of my wedding dress, but I dont want to show her, and I dont’ know how to say it nicely.

I bought my dress months ago, but recently went to a wedding in my fiances family (cousin), and his cousin had a very similar dress that I myself almost bought.  So I dont want to show her because I dont want her to tell other people that my dress is similar and ruin any surprises for my fiance.


I think that you don’t need to involve her so much if you aren’t comfortable, especially if its just you and your mother.  Make yourself happy first!

@cuddlz88:  Ok, so she is a nut case Mother-In-Law woohoo…

See if you can score a reception at Figi (her paying of course lol)..*jks*

You’re just going to have to keep ideas and communication down to a minimal…Tell her it’s a suprise and no one is knowing anything.

This should be a close bonding time between you and your mother….*Big Hugs* for you hun and good luck.
