Hi everyone. First post on here so am hoping for some honest and kind input. I am having some problems setting boundaries with my future MIL. I know she comes from a good place but is being a little too much for me. To start, we got engaged Thanksgiving and are not getting married until next summer. We have a lot of the big things done: date, venue, band, photographer, wedding parties, etc. She continuously suggests that I make an appointment near their house so we can look at dresses though I tell her that wedding dress shopping is something I'll be doing with my mother (I am the only girl out of three boys...this is also my Mom's moment haha). She called our venue to try to get a step and repeat and ultimately the planner told her that anything at the venue has to be decided on by the couple and my Mom (my Dad passed away two years ago, my Mom is planning and paying for the wedding). There are other small things that she has tried to push and not only am I not having it, but the wedding is pretty far off. Her buying a dress was a huge production even though I told her numerous times it really didn't matter what she wore, which she took as me not being interested. I haven't even found my dress yet since it's pretty far off. All in all, I would love to hear from those of you who might have had to deal with some over the top mother in laws in terms of wedding planning. I want to be considerate but also don't want to get too frustrated with it. My fiancé has been great about politely telling her to let us and my Mom handle what needs to be handled but I am not sure how receptive she has been. Thank you for reading!
