I would approach it in saying that you didn’t mean to suprise her by having things picked out "early" but that you are trying to give all of your bridesmaids plenty of time to plan and save.  Just be kind and stick to your original questions about the dress.  As long as you stay away from being confrontational and putting her on the defensive, you should be ok.  Putting the spin on it that you want to involve her (and her daughter ) might help too.

It’s never too early to start. Then your girls are going to save up their money better, they can buy them on sale, or after the upcoming june weddings (used), etc etc.

Honestly it isn’t your FMIL’s decision. Just tell her you want to get these moving along so everyone can find the best deal possible. After all, why wait if you already have them picked out and don’t plan on changing them?? You don’t want to be rushing to get them in or anything, and bridesmaid dresses take FOREVER it seems. And they’re pricey! The ones my friend picked out in a salon were like $250 originally before the big fatty 10% discount. They were only $120 online. That’s a big difference, especially if you picked out relatively common bridesmaid dresses or they are very expensive.

It’s just one more thing to check off your list and go "whew that’s done!" I wanted my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses picked before my own wedding dress. I wanted to make sure my dress was X amount fancier than the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and that the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were just easier to deal with.
