Hey everyone! So I’m having a lot of fun planning my wedding with my fiance, my mom, and my sister. I think my mother in law may feel a little left out though. I’m inviting her to go dress shopping with me and she’s planning the rehearsal dinner. But she keeps asking what else she can do to help. Can anyone think of any little jobs I can give her? How did you include your mother in law in the planning, if at all?

Is anyone planning a bridal shower? If so, let her plan games or something like that

I’m having kind of the same issue. I invited my Future Mother-In-Law to come with me and my mom to look at the venue since my FH was working and we needed to lock a location down. She expected to be invited to the dress trials but I wanted that to be special between me and my mom and now she is “disappointed” according to my FH. She’s passive aggressive and over bearing so I have to be careful with what I do and don’t invite her to be apart of.
I am inviting her to get her hair and makeup done the morning of the wedding with me, my mom and bridesmaids. I also will invite her to the cake tasting and I told her I would love to go with her when she wants to start looking for dresses. You could suggest those things also.

For my daughter’s wedding, Future Mother-In-Law addressed the invitation envelopes for their side of the family and I (MOB) addressed for our side. My daughter is keeping Future Mother-In-Law in the loop fairly often by texting her about decisions they have made, little things she can do to help. Future Mother-In-Law appreciates this, because she has only 3 sons, no daughters, and I think my daughter is doing well to include Future Mother-In-Law as much as possible. Sets a good beginning for their relationship. It helps that Future Mother-In-Law is not overbearing, just very nice and helpful.
