    My FMIL keeps asking me what she's supposed to wear and I just keep telling her that I don't care, lol.  Honestly though I think you should go shopping with her and try on both long and short dresses.  Fulfill her wishes by picking out long ones but show her how the short ones look on you and tell her how comfortable you are in them.  For example I wanted my BM's to wear short dresses...well they both liked the long one so that's what we got.  If you tell her and show her how comfortable you are in something I'm sure she'll end up agreeing with you.

      Well we went shopping and I found a dress that's tea lengh and all is well. Thanks gal for all your input. Have you ever seen the website www.themotherinlawclub.com? Pass it on to your FMIL.

        I would say go shopping together and try on what she picks out. Keep her sweet, it is her day after all. Hopefully you will find something you both like.

          Saying that my mum didnt ask me what i wanted her to wear, she just bought something and then showed me the picture. She lives in spain though so we couldnt of had a shopping spree together, had she still lived in the uk i think we may have gone out together and found something we both liked. I do like what she has chosen though, thank god!

            Wow, I would never thought I had any ifluence on what my FMIL was going to wear nor would I tell her, I think as an adult and mother of the groom she can wear whatever she wants!  She has only asked me what colour my mother is wearing and will choose a different colour than her.  Good luck!

              I am ready to pull my hair out when I think about my FMIL dress. She keeps talking about wearing a navy dress with sequins on it. Now that would be ok with me if i wasn't getting married in Cancun in June on the beach. I don't think this is going to mesh well! Any ideas on how to nicely turn down her idea of navy sequins for something a little more appropriate for a June beach wedding?

                the best is to be honest I suppose since that is your wedding and nothing is more than your hapiness.. may be set a colour theme so that you can easily turn down her idea?
