Awww, I’m on the fence with this one…

If she has no daughters I would let her be there. My Future Mother-In-Law will be there while I get ready. My MUA is doing her makeup and my mother’s.

I totally get just wanting your nearest & dearest on the morning but think you should invite her. I’m sure she just wants to play with the girls and what a great opportunity to bond 🙂

If you get along, I would say to have her drop by early in the morning before you are in your dress.  I am planning to do that if my Future Mother-In-Law wants to see me that day before the ceremony.

What if she wants to give you a gift or share a family tradition for the bride with you that morning?

Yeah, you should invite her. My Future Mother-In-Law is coming to the salon with us so she can also get her hair done, and it means a lot to her.

I’m echoing the same sentiment of the others. Her son is getting married and she is gaining a beautiful daughter. If its in your heart, allow her to take part in these precious moments as they may not come for her again!

I agree with the others, inviting her seems like the nice thing to do.

Have her join in, she probably just feels a little left out and wants to experience something she did not get to do with her own daughters.  Plus, it would be one more person to help if needed.

I’ll be the Devil’s Advocate for this one.

If Future Mother-In-Law is super sweet and easygoing, I would just ask her to join you. That would be nice.

However, if Future Mother-In-Law is overbearing or “just too much”, then I wouldn’t ask her. For example, my Mother-In-Law is very nice but she has a tendency to overshadow my family because she’s very loud/touchy feely/in your face. Mine didn’t ask to see me but if she did, I would probably decline because I wouldn’t want her to overshadow my mother in the moment.

Aww, I’d let her come. I have already told my Future Mother-In-Law that she is welcome to come over with the rest of us girls on the wedding day. My fiancé is an only child, so it’s her only chance!

My Mother in Law wanted to do something special for me the morning off. She invited all the girls involved in the wedding over to the house she was renting and made breakfast for me. It was a very special time. Plus I was able to eat a good meal before the day became very crazy. My mother in law wanted to give me a little something for my honeymoon without having her son around.

I would see her the morning before everything gets crazy. Even if it is just meeting her somewhere for breakfast. She would appreciate it and treasure it just like you would.
