Mother and FMIL Dress Vent?

Am I the only one about to rip her hair out because of their moms' dresses?


I thought the brides were supposed to be the ones with the dress drama :)


My mother hates the dress she bought and is trying to find a new one.  That's all I've heard for 3 weeks.  All day every day, emails and phone calls. 


My FMIL hates every dress we show her.


Do they not realize it's not about them?


I don't care if they come naked at this point.  :)

aww! hang in there. I would ignore their complaints. Let it bounce off your shoulders. You've got enough stress already. Remind them of that. They have a dress, its decent, they'll wear it.

I totally know what you mean... my wedding isn't for another 16 months and the nagging has already begun about what dresses they are going to wear.... My first concern is finding a dress I am comfortable in... and I am expected to make their dresses a priority...


 


Totally know what you mean!

Tell them nicely that you would like to accomadate them as much as possible but at this point you need to focus on you and the wedding. Tell them to shut the hell up and figure out this crap on their own! LOL I'm kidding! Don't do that. Just let them know that you don't really want to be a part of the discussion anymore!

awww kristeen! lol. I just have this gut feeling that my FMIL is going to show up in a super short, super sexy, super sparkly and very super inappropriate "dress"..LOL...I know exactly what ur going thru....I guess at this point all we can hope is that the dress doesn't end up being white haha!  I totally understand. Good Luck!!!

That happened to my good friend!  Her MIL showed up in ivory because she couldn't stand someone else having all the attention.


Speaking of sexy mother dresses, did anyone see the Bridezillas where the mom wore the pageant dress?

OMG that's awful!  How rude! lol. well if it happens it happens and she's only embarassing herself...I guess I just have to think of it that way right?


and YES. I did see that...hot pink sequins sparkling everywhere and her tee-tahs hanging out. LOL. Sometimes I watch that and just have to wonder if it's staged. LOL.
