Hm well it was extremely rude of them to do so. Considering you get along well, they may have thought that they were doing something to take away a bit of your burden. Maybe they were hoping to surprise you. Either way, somehow I think this must be a huge misunderstanding.

I would recommend calling to say “hey, Fiance told me that you picked out a flower girl and ring bearer outfits. I was hoping we could do that together”. Listen to what they say and take it from there. I imagine that once they understand that you wanted a hand in this, they’ll go red with embarrassment.

is your flower girl/page boy your FSIL’s children? even if the answer is yes, it still very rude of them to do this without consulting you and even if they are super excited they still should have spoken to you about it

im glad to hear your Fiance is going to speak to them

Well, it’s certainly not nice that they did that… but maybe they’ll turn out to be totally adorable!

This actually happened a month or so ago to me and I really didn’t think much about it at the time.  My Fiance and I thought we may have his niece and my niece as flower girls.  But, we haven’t officially decided this or officially asked his sister or my brother’s wife yet.  I have not decided on wedding colors yet either.  So, I get an email from FFIL’s blackberry with pictures of two different dresses.  I’m thinking what are these for?  They didn’t look like a flower girl dress and were off white/cream and white.  First of all, they looked like first holy communion or Easter dresses and these little girls will be 2 and 3 y.o.  I know Future Mother-In-Law is very excited about the wedding.  But, these aren’t what I have in mind at all and little girls should be wearing a color.  My Future Sister-In-Law didn’t even know that Future Mother-In-Law bought the dresses.  I simply responded that those dresses were not what I had in mind.  I want to do something simple and fun for little girls…maybe a tutu with ballet flats.  Just tell them that you have your own ideas and you appreciate the input.
