- Wedding: November 1999
My FI told me when we first engaged his mother wanted to buy me the “something new” in the form of jewelry. I think that’s incredibly generous. Now, my dress came in about a month ago. The consultant suggested not to wear a necklace since the top is so beaded. I agreed. The consultant brought out some earrings that were gorgeous! I loved them so much and would have bought them right then. But I remembered my FI saying his mom wanted to buy me something so I didn’t. I hadn’t said anything about knowing to his mom because I didn’t know if FI was suppose to tell me or not.
So when I got home, I asked FI he knew what his mom wanted to get me, and if I were even supposed to know. He said he’d find out. She told him that she wanted to make it a surprise and she wasn’t sure what she was going to get. she said “I’ll know when I see it”. He told her she can’t leave it too long bcause I was already starting to shop and if she left it to a month before the wedding, I’d probably have bought everything I need. He told me she hadn’t realized this and would think about it.
So, the earrings I like may not even be there anymore. Which is so disappointing because they were exactly what I was looking for. the consultant said they would need to be ordered but they usually get discontinues fast to make room for new designs.
Based on this situation, does it sound like I shouldn’t be shopping for jewelry at this point? His mom is such a procrastinator, I wouldn’t be surprised if she ends up giving me this gift a week before the wedding. Plus, in her head it might seem more appropriate then.
I’m posting bcause I had a bad dream last night that my mom bought me those earrings I like and FMIL bought be other earrings and I had to decide which mom to disappoint.
