Advice, please... FMIL wants to go dress shopping
Posted 16 January 2008 - 11:37 AM
The other night, FI was talking with his mom and she offered to come dress shopping with me since my mom can't (she's on the West coast, I'm in NY). FMIL is really lovely. Sweet, helpful, kind and... insistent. REALLY insistent and sometimes overbearing.
FI (bless him) tabled the issue telling her that I was only looking at things online at the moment. But I know that its going to come up again. And it's not that I don't want her to help but... actually that's exactly it. I don't want her involved in my dress... in any way. We have different styles, different tastes, different notions of budget... everything.
So, how do I tell her to butt out without making her feel like I don't appreciate the offer? Because I do appreciate the offer... but OH H3LL NO!!
Thanks in advance!!!
Happily married since 2008

Thats cute!! You are not playing huh?? LOL...I agree with the other girls in just going & not telling her. Just act like you went on the spur of the moment. Like, you were at the mall & you passed a bridal shop & saw a huge SALE sign in the window so you went in & its a done deal. What could she possibly say to that?

The only thing I can say is good luck! Maybe when you have the time to go she will be busy or something.
If you think of any other excuses let me know. I may need to use them.
