My Future Mother-In-Law is Ah-Mazing!  She is so encouraging, sweet and calm and we have oodles in common.  My only complaint…she lives in England, and that’s just too darn far away!

My Future Mother-In-Law is wonderful too!

Fiance and I live in NYC and all my family is in CA so I only get to see them a few times a year. Up until this year Future Mother-In-Law lived just outside the city and we’d see her at least once a month.

When I couldn’t go home for holidays I was always welcome at her place, she even had me stay all of christmas weekend with her and her monther after Fiance (then BF) left to go spend time with his dad.

She moved to Maine at the beginning of this year so we see her less now, but she has been amazing in helping plan the wedding.

She’s been contacting all the vendors/visiting all the vendors since she’s up in Maine and we’re donw in NYC. She even offered to make the wedding cake (she used to be a caterer and makes amazing cakes) as well as help sew napkins for the rehersal dinner/reception so we can cut down on linen rental costs.

She’s being so great, I worry that my mom will feel like some of her Mother of the Bride role is taken away. But since she’s in CA it’s not exactly easy to plan from their either.

I have a great relationship with my mom, but I love having a great relationship with my Future Mother-In-Law too! She had 2 sons and is really happy to have some “mother of the bride” stuff to do.

Good for you! I have an AMAZING Future Mother-In-Law. She is the most caring and loving person. My Fiance is in the military and we did long distance for a loooong time so I’d always be at his parents without him visiting. This brought us pretty close. My mother can be very controlling, opinionated, and more of a “my way or the highway” kind of mom. She’s the complete opposite. ANYTIME i need her she is there. And I love her for that.

My Future Mother-In-Law is actually pretty awesome too! She’s a stay at home mom that takes care of her 25 year old special needs son, bakes incredible goodies at least once a month, is uber-crafty and always sends us homemade cards. She used to be in the wedding industry and did flowers, so she’s been an awesome resource. She has said over and over about how she wants our wedding to reflect us and she doesn’t want to step on our toes in anyway so she’s doing everything she can to help us with what we need. She’s just an amazing person! Her daughter, my Future Sister-In-Law, is really awesome too. They are ALL really excited to be adding me to their family and that’s just an AMAZING feeling! It’s so nice to feel accepted into your new family, you know?

I’m sorry you haven’t had the best relationship with your own mother lately (I can definitely relate to that!), but it soooo fantastic to have someone supportive in your life. Especially, knowing that they’ll always be around!

Congrats on your AWESOME FMIL!

I LOVE my mother in law (yup..enough to say so on FB!) but she is just too amazing not to!  She takes such good care of me when I visit.  She loves to drag me around her garden to tell me the new plants or flowers she bought at the nursery and makes me my favorite food to entice me to stay over for dinner.  She loves having me around and get on my fiance when he’s not helping me in the kitchen. =)  She even apologized for not teaching him to cook to make me food. <3

I love my Future Mother-In-Law too.  She has been so helpful in the planning – Fiance got a job working 6 months a year out of state, and she has been so supportive in helping me adjust – taking me to dinner, etc.

I’m just a waiting bee, but my BF’s mom adores me. She jokes that she likes me more than her son! I mean, what’s not to love about me really? πŸ˜€

What’s awesome is that I told her I wanted to make a brooch bouquet for my wedding and she went out and bought me 39 brooches. My mother has gotten me 7. I have gotten myself 6. So, it is safe to say that she is excited about the prospect of having me in the family.

She doesn’t have any daughters so I’m hoping to include her in as much wedding stuff as I can…the boy just needs to hurry up! πŸ˜€

My Mother-In-Law is AMAZING!!  She completely took me into the family within months of Darling Husband and starting to date and she is always really helpful, very thoughtful and super generous!

I hear all the stories of people’s awful MIL’s and look at mine and smile! πŸ™‚

I see my future stepmother-in-law a lot more than my future mother-in-law, but I really adore her.  I was kind of terrified when I first met her, because I’d been warned that she doesn’t like everyone and she would rather state her mind than be polite.  We get along really well, though… she reminds me of myself in the “no brain to mouth filter” department.
