- Wedding: March 2014
So we’re planning our wedding on very short (6 weeks) notice thanks to the Army… And I have no close friends or relatives nearby to help. My Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law live two states away but they have been AMAZING with the planning and so, so helpful- they’re coming in two days early to help set up, they’ve offered to help with costs (we’re good on budget, but just the offer was so sweet) and my Future Sister-In-Law is even cooking dinner for the evening of the wedding. I would probably have torn my hair out by now without them.
i already have a gift for my Future Mother-In-Law that I think she’ll love (an engraved locket that says “thank you for raising the man of my dreams”- she was a single mother for most of my fiance’s childhood and I know she’s so proud of how he’s turned out). But I am stumped on what to get my Future Sister-In-Law. I really like her but living so far apart I don’t have a good sense of her taste in jewelry, and my fiancé hasn’t been helpful in that regard. And I want it to be something really nice, given how wonderfully helpful she’s been during this crazy time.
