My mother in law wants to spend every minute of the big day with me. I'm talking the salon, lunch, getting ready, WP pictures, riding in the limo.
While I don't mind her being there, I want to spend at least SOME alone time with my mom. I was planning on just sneaking away for a bit so my mom and I can talk, take a breather and have a moment to give her a present.
This shouldn't be a problem, except, I fear it will upset my FMIL.
When she found out that there was an hour at the salon where she wouldn't be with me, I kid you not, she cried! And then proceeded to ask me if she did something wrong, if I was ashamed of her, if she just shouldn't come see me at all the day of.....
I don't know how to address all this. My FMIL is overly emotional with the wedding a month away, but my mom is so gentle that if the day comes and FMIL starts 'taking over', my mother would never, ever say anything.
And i worry my mom will look back on her only daughters wedding and think that she didn't get to spend time with me like she wanted.
So, what can I say or do to make everyone happy? I"m at a loss because I don't know what i can say that won't sound like "FMIL, I need some real mom time"
