Can you just include them in the Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts?  That way everyone can properly ooohh and aaahh over them to her and they never have to wear them and she will never be the wiser.

Does she expect them to wear the jewelry on the day of the wedding? You could have them wear it to the rehearsal instead? Or wear it for some photos and then change to something else or take it off?

I think that’s really sweet of her! Although, has she talked to you about what kind of dresses your girls will be wearing? I find it kinda strange that she wouldn’t mention the jewelry to you. I think if you really dont mind what they look like, you should let her make them for your girls. Who knows, it could turn out super cute.

If it doesn’t turn out super cute, you can thank her profusely, but graciously say that you had bought jewelry for your girls already. πŸ˜€

I think thats great! Sometimes it hard for the mother of the groom to find her “place” in the wedding (we have also had this problem) And I think having her make the jewelry will make her feel really needed

so FH knows but does she know that he told you? if not, maybe you could gush about how you found the perfect necklaces to go with your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and got a great deal on them and got them for their presents. then when she says she’s making them you can say “oh poo, how about they wear them for the rehearsal dinner?” lol. i know what you mean though, my Future Mother-In-Law is similar – suuuuuuuuuuper nice with everything she does! she’s full of ideas (whether or not they go with the theme is another story!)
