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 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!

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.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
