May I vent to y'all for a second?
I didn't want bridesmaids but caved to pressure and now FSIL and my sister are bridesmaids. I don't expect anything from them and told them they can wear whatever they feel good in so it is really NBD.
However, my fmil and fsil can't wrap their heads around it. To the point of thinking FSIL, my sister, and I are going dress shopping when fsil and I visit my hometown in a few months, which I had no plans to do.
FMIL is stressing because she has to wait to pick her dress until after my mom. My mom has a lot on her plate and not thinking about my wedding, let alone what she is going to wear. I have tried to encourage FMIL to wear whatever she wants but she insists that the MOB picks first.
I am just going to continue to bean dip them until the wedding but it blows my mind that telling them to wear whatever they want is causes them so much strife. I feel like they think I am being difficult when I just really don't care what they wear!
ETA: I love them dearly and am not upset with them in anyway. They are fabulous women who are incredibly helpful.
