@collieblueeyes:  i would not take it to heart maybe she wants to surprize you with her dress.

my Future Mother-In-Law showed me the dress she wante but shes getting blue and thats the colors of my BMs but im ok with that im not going to tell her what color to wear. i would rather her not be in the same colors as my Bridesmaid or Best Man but what can i do lol. keep calm

MOG is not a member of the wedding party and is under no obligation to show you her dress. Maybe she wants it to be a surprise.

Have you asked to see it? Maybe she just assumes you don’t care, so she hasn’t offered. It doesn’t seem to me like she is keeping it a secret, but maybe she thinks you aren’t interested.

I guess you can just ask her. My mother in law sent me picture because we were talking about it on the phone, I’m not sure I would have seen it until day of if we didn’t happen to be talking about it.

 

That being said if she doesn’t want too, I would just let it go. I think it’s one of those things that in the grand scheme of things doesn’t matter that much and isn’t worth creating bad feelings over.

@collieblueeyes:  Aw you should ask her then. Like some PPs said, she might not have thought you cared/were interested in what she wore (since there are brides out there with very strong “it’s all about me” attitudes).

@collieblueeyes:  if she’s not in the bridal party then I don’t see why she should. Maybe she wants it to be a surprise and feel all pretty on the day too 🙂

You should ask her. I’ve seen both my Future Mother-In-Law and my FstepMIL’s dresses. My FstepMIL was really excited to show me her dress and basically wanted me to “approve” it before she took the tags off, lol. But my Future Mother-In-Law woulndn’t have shown me hers unless I had asked. She just thought I wouldn’t care to see it, but ended up being really excited to show me when I bluntly asked if I could see it.

Does she normally share a lot od details about herself?

My Future Mother-In-Law asked me what I wanted her to wear and if she should coordinate with my mom and I was really caught off guard.  I had no idea parents would coordinate.  So I asked my mom and she totally blew it off.  It’s def not her style to coordinate.

I don’t mean to sound snarky and please don’t take it that way. Do parents of the couple normally need to consult on what they wear? I can understand if you want everyone to coordinate. Personally, I wouldn’t care or even be bothered by it. As long as she turned up to celebrate our day that would be all that mattered she could be wearing a potato sack and it wouldn’t make a difference to me.

My Future Mother-In-Law asked me what color my mom was wearing so she won’t choose the same color or something.  I haven’t seen her dress (actually, I don’t know if she has one yet).  If you really want to see it, I would ask her to send you a pic!  🙂

@collieblueeyes:  Ah i see. Maybe she does want to deliberately keep it a secret so she can “dress to impress”. Try not to worry about it and I’m sure your mother will look lovely regardless 🙂
