My FMIL - nice woman, has 2 son's and is used to being told yes.
Asked me if she could see my dress or if I wanted it to be a surpirse, I stated I wanted it to be a surprise. Her reply "fine, then my dress will be a surprise too" ... That aside. She then requested that we could do something together, so she said we could do the hair and makeup trials... I said ok (since I was put on the spot).
Here's my thought process -
Morning of wedding - myself, my mom, & my bridesmaids get ready together. Those who want their hair and makeup done get it (I have no preference).
Mother of the groom - get's ready with the groom?
My questions are 2:
1) Where does the Mother of the Groom get ready typically (since she won't see me before the wedding)
2) I was thinking it would make more sense for me to get my hair & makeup trial done with bridesmaids, as I figured you go try on veils afterwards and even the dress to see how it looks.
What do others do?
(thanks in advance for your help!)
