Hi Bees. The short story is that I’m a planner by trade. I’ve also had this year off to take be a caregiver to my dad. So my wedding is mostly planned and just have the little details left (ie) signage, lights, day of stuff. People are asking how they can help. I’m mostly concerned with my Mother-In-Law. I can’t think of anything for her to do. My FH says it’s okay but I feel like she is feeling left out. Please advise. What do I do? Should I not worry about it?

Can you invite her to a dress fitting maybe? Or ask her opinion on the signs? Maybe something important day-of?

m197500 : we live in different states and she’s not computer friendly. I have no idea what could be so important on the day of. Not trying to be negative just a loss.

Don’t invent problems. There’s better stuff to worry about in the world.
“Thank you so much for the offer. That is really nice of you. I managed to get everything done already, so I cant think of anything off the top of my head but I’ll let you know if I think of something.”
Done. No need to make up stuff for her to do. Being “included” doesn’t necessarily mean doing tasks for you…Just be friendly and engaging and interact with her.

I think it’s very cool that you are wanting to make her part of everything! I think if I was the mother of the groom, I’d sure want to feel like I’m doing something for the big day. Is there something she could shop for? Like the guest book or the knife for cake-cutting? Or if you don’t want it to be a situation where she is spending, maybe you could ask her advice on some things, even if you don’t need it…like what to gift your husband on the wedding day or what song she’d like for her dance with her son?
