- Wedding: May 2014
I am not sure how I am going to discuss this with my FMIL (future mother in law) so I was looking for some advice.
I am getting married in an ivory dress with a champagne belt. My mother in law has told me multiple times she wants to wear an ivory/champagne dress. She says she’s worn it to a wedding in the past and she absolutely loves the dress. I haven’t seen it, so I’m trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, because it could be much darker than my own since I’m sure all of you out there know off-white is not as simple as it seems.
However, I brought her and her daughter (bridesmaid) with me to my dress fitting yesterday, and to look with some of my other maids at dresses. My FMIL was obsessed with one of the wedding dresses on the mannequin, and then announced to my mother and friends that she wanted to get the wedding dress, and have it dyed to wear to my wedding.
Am I insane for being upset that this woman’s options are wear an off-white shade dress, or that she would show up in an actual wedding dress? Even if she dyed it a completely appropriate color…it’s the fact she’d spend a lot of money (that she doesn’t really have) to wear an actual wedding dress to her son’s wedding.
Anyone else have a FMIL who wanted to wear a wedding dress, or wear a white dress? What did you do?
