    Your FMIL to wear a dress that looks almost exactly like the BM dresses you already bought?

     

     

    I showed her in person the dresses, I don't know if I should just let this go or tell her its not a good idea

        How close is it exactly? My FMIL found a coral dress, but asked me first if it was ok since the BM dress was coral, which was totally fine with me, its not the exact same dress or the exact same color but they will both be in coral.

          I'm with Brandy... how exactly close is it?  Is it just same dress, different color?  Same color, different style?  Or exact, exact?  I honestly wouldn't worry about it... she won't be in the BM pictures and I'm sure age difference will prevail.  LOL  Is that wrong to say?  Anyway, my opinion is to let her wear it and not worry about it!

            I'm going with just letting it go...too many other things to stress about as a bride-to-be!

                I'm in a similar situation. When FMIL started looking at dresses I told her get whatever you want just not a tiered skirt because my dress has tiers. Of course, the only one she tries on has tiers and she loves it. It's also three times as much as I expected her to spend and she always complains that she has no money and never offers to pay for anything. She once made the comment that I always want to have my way, but I really believe that I was more correct when I said that she just wants to ruin everything. But since she never likes anything I told her to just buy it. 

                 

                I think they just have a really hard time realizing that their sons chose to love us more?

                 

                Thank goodness, I bought another dress that isn't as tiered.

                  Thanks for the comments ladies, her dress is the same cut & style, the same colors except hers has white thru it where my BMs don't, I was pissed because I showed her in person the BM dresses! I'm in the same kind of situation as Mocha, she does says things on purpose, she did it to my FSIL last year when they got married and she warned me about it, oh well I'm going to let her do whatever she wants with the dress, its definitely a cheaper version of the dress and if she is comfortable standing around the BM's kinda looking the same thats her issue..lol as far as having the balls to tell someone not to wear something, I'm kinda shocked that soemone would have the balls to buy a dress that almost matches the BMs,

                   

                  Thanks for the input ladies, nice to know I'm not crazy in my thinking and that some others have annoying FMIL too!

                    Wow!  I'm so glad my FMIL is not like that.  I would be pissed but she's probably the one who will look silly :)

                      Crazy FMILs! Mine was great until we got engaged and now it's become so frustrating. I hate how weddings seem to bring out the worst in people, thank goodness it also brings out the best in some.
