Honestly I don’t think that my Future Mother-In-Law has started looking at all yet.  I know she is going to end up buying off the rack.  I have too many other things to worry about besides what she is going to wear so I am choosing to ignore it.

 

@Mrs. Excited: Honestly, I think my Future Mother-In-Law is going to end up in Red as well! That’s her favorite color and she said something about wanting to look for a red dress (when she finally starts looking).  My colors are cobalt blue, green, and silver…yeah…

Niether my Mother or my future Mother in-law has a dress yet.  Both Mom’s will buy off the rack dresses or suits from a department store closer to the wedding date.

Both my mom and my Mother-In-Law bought off the rack.

Honestly most of the “MOB/MOG” stuff at bridal shops is usually really matronly anyway.  I would send her to Neiman or Nordstrom to look around.  Then there is no wait time at all.

She is a grown woman… she can be sure to be dressed appropriately. She has MONTHS to figure it out.  This is not something you should be stressing out about.

I wouldn’t stress. My Future Mother-In-Law got her gown months ago, my mom still has not. She has a couple off the rack she’s debating between, and my wedding is 3.5 weeks away. It’ll all work out!

I have no idea what Future Mother-In-Law is planning on wearing and if she has it or not. I will find out on my wedding day. We just got my moms the other weekend but it was a clearance dress off the rack at a departement store. I wouldn’t worry, she can find tons of nice stuff off the rack and there is still time to order from a bridal store as well.

Yeah, I wouldn’t worry. My Future Mother-In-Law just showed me her dress yesterday, and mentioned “her other dress that she hasn’t got yet,” I was like “omg, I’m not even a two-dress bride!”

My mom doesn’t have hers yet, but she is a great shopper, and I’m sure will find something awesome off the rack (that’s probably even on sale…)

Stepmom has her dress but neither mom nor Future Mother-In-Law have theirs.  Both have shopped and I think Future Mother-In-Law has one picked out – I may tell her it could take 3 months to get it…I had no idea!  I asked all three to wear black though so I am sure Future Mother-In-Law and my mom could easily get something off the rack at a department store.  I wouldn’t stress too much about it.  I DO wish however that Fiance would look into what he wants to wear at the wedding…

No one except for me has worried much about their clothes yet. Then again, our wedding is somewhat casual. I’m sure the moms will pick something nice that doesn’t need to be ordered in.

My Future Mother-In-Law bought one, but my mom hasn’t yet. Getting married one day before you. Everything will work out, it always does. 😀

My mother and his mother still haven’t found anything yet. I am not too worried, because they aren’t doing gowns, but dresses, so they will get what they like that won’t need to be altered. 

Should they already have them?

Mine doesn’t have hers either.
