This post is part vent part question to get an outsider's opinion.
My bridal shower is this weekend, it's planned at a restaurant at 10am and we'll be having a brunch. I'm wearing a simple, white fit and flare dress and I think most of the girls I've talked to are wearing spring dresses. My FMIL would like my FI to wear dress pants with a shirt and tie. I've already told him that I think he would be overdressed and that a tie is not necessary. I asked my MOH who is planning the shower about his attire and she thinks khaki pants and a button-down shirt would be fine which I agree. My FMIL is known to be overbearing and pushy, and has basically told me that my MOH (my sister) and I are both wrong. He is the groom, he should look his best (which means shirt and tie), etc. while my thoughts are that its an early day time event and he doesn't need the tie.
At the end of the day, I have told him, just wear what you want and will be comfortable in. I want my FI who is a grown man to be able to pick his own outfit. And I know, tie or no tie, is not the biggest deal in the world, mostly its just annoying. Just her overall sense of it is, "I'm right, you're wrong, why would you ever think that way?" and I hate it.
Anyways, I'm thankful for this post so I can vent and if any of you have thoughts on this non-issue that's becoming an issue, please share!
