@MsYankee:  Wow, that’s such a huge coincidence. I’m glad for you and your mom that your FMIL is so easy-going and fine about picking a different dress.

Of all the dresses in Macy’s? That’s crazy! Good thing they were both flexible.

My grandma and my aunt’s MIL wore the same dress in different colors to my aunts wedding.   Apparently every one ended up having a good laugh over it.  We came from a small town with one department store, so it was very easy to do!

I don’t think we will have that problem, but I think you would always remember it!

@MsYankee:  Just shows that they both have excellent taste! Smile

I will say, it is really nice to see a positive post that shows all parties involved in a good light. Weddings can make so many reasonable people go completely over the edge. I’m glad everyone in your situation was able to be mature and open-minded.

It is really nice your FMIL is willing to exchange the dress but I think you put her in an awful position.  I’m sure your FMIL didn’t want to start any drama so she just obliged to keep the peace.   You are lucky to have such a wonder FMIL.

Funny! I had a similar experience but not quite the same. My FMIL sent me the dress she ordered online and it’s a champagne lace number. I sent a picture to my mom (who lives far away) and she literally said ‘Oh, I considered trying that on too but thought it looked too bridal’. Soooo now I cannot stop thinking is the FMIL dress too bridal and is my mom offended by it? In any case, I do not care so I am totally okay with it but feel your pain/relief as these things do happen!!!
