    My Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law went with me and the experience was wonderful! I couldn’t get my own mother to come with me to save my life, and honestly, that was probably much better.

    But my Future Mother-In-Law was with me on my 3rd shopping trip when I found my dress! I am so lucky to be gaining such a wonderful support system into my life with my new in-laws!

    I would have like to invite her, but my mother feels she’s being overbearing as it is. So I left her out. I feel kind of bad, but I know my mom was looking forward to the experience with me.

    My Future Mother-In-Law has only 1 son and I invited her to share the experience (although I already had a dress..  going shopping again was fun for me too, so whatevs!).  She cherished the experience and kept thanking me profusely.. she was very sweet about it. 🙂

    My Future Mother-In-Law lives 14 hours away so it wasn’t practical. But she never has very nice things to say and honestly, as bitchy as it may sound, I don’t really care what her opinion of my dress is. I had a fabulous time with my mom and sister and I do feel like she would have put a damper on the experiece, I know she did when we went to visit the reception venue.

    I hate my Future Mother-In-Law. She’s married to a racist pig and I actually don’t want her or his step dad at the wedding. I haven’t been serious dress shopping yet, but when I do she will not be invitied.

    I don’t have anything against my Future Mother-In-Law, but between my mom, my sister, and my friends, I had more than enough opinions!  I’ve heard of girls inviting their Future Mother-In-Law to a fitting, or to shop for a veil or accessories, which I think is a nice way of including her.

    I did when we first got engaged but she didn’t want to but then when we officially went dress shopping, I didn’t invite her I don’t think but I did send her picture to keep her in the loop.  She never relied and has yet to say anything about my dress.

    I’m glad I didn’t invite her in all honesty.  She would have made the experience unpleasant.
