@MsYankee:  Wow, that’s such a huge coincidence. I’m glad for you and your mom that your Future Mother-In-Law 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 Mother-In-Law 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 Future Mother-In-Law is willing to exchange the dress but I think you put her in an awful position.  I’m sure your Future Mother-In-Law didn’t want to start any drama so she just obliged to keep the peace.   You are lucky to have such a wonder Future Mother-In-Law.

Funny! I had a similar experience but not quite the same. My Future Mother-In-Law 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 Future Mother-In-Law 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!!!
