Yikes! She sounds like she’s meddling way more than it’s worth! I think you and mr june should be the ones making the decision about whether or not you shoot again! and for cryin’ out loud, you haven’t even seen the pictures yet!!!

Unfortunately this seems like the day to day stresses of wedding planning.  I don’t really think all of this is your Mother-In-Law being crazy.  Its awesome she is paying for your e-pics and she wants them to look great.  Some MIL’s just pick a cheap photographer and say deal with it.  Granted she shouldnt have lied to you about having to pick pictures that day. 

It sounds like a lot of this is the general stress of trying to plan a wedding.  The hardest part for me was communicating with my own mother about what we had agreed upon.  If I could tell you how many times she went back and forth on issues it was crazy.  Wedding planning is hard to make a decision and stick to it.  There are hardley any right or wrongs, almost everything is in the grey.  Because of this, its easy to second guess decisions and change your mind.

if our wedding experience with fmil is anything like the past two years have been, i’m going to be in the same boat.

unfortunately i dont have great advice becuase my fmil is the same way and if you say anythign ot her she cries and plays the poor me pity me game for weeks on end. i rant to my own mother about it (who is a GODSEND) but i have yet to come up with any great intervention ideams. at this point i just let her do her thing and i try and stay true to myself and do what i need to do, e.g. maybe in this situation see for yourself what the pictures look ilke, if you’re happy with them, truly happy, then tell her that and dont do the re-shoot.


ugh, its hard, i feel your pain :/

sounds like we’re sharing a Future Mother-In-Law…

Tell her no reshoot until you apporve the pictures or at least deem them unacceptable enough for you to need a re-shoot. But do remember she paid, and as long as its on her dime, theres not much you can say.
