Okay, so my FI's brother will be getting married two months before we do, so his mom is trying to help out with both weddings. My Future sister in Law's mom isn't happy with their wedding, so my MIL is really helping her out. My parents are planning on paying for the majority of my wedding, so I told her not to worry about ours. She got upset and said she doesn't want to favor one son over the other.
We are planning a backyard outdoor wedding and are only planning on spending a few thousand. Well my MIL bought my sister in law's wedding dress, and it was a thousand dollars. She offered to reciporcate for me, but I've never been a flashy girl. The dress that I really want is around $200, so I'm not going to fall anywhere near $1000. Would it be wrong to ask her to also pay for my bridesmaid dresses, as long as they fall under the initial budget? How would I go about asking? Should I just know what I want and go for it?
Should I just forget about it and go for a more expensive dress to make her happy? His mom gets very emotional and it very hard to handle a lot of the time.
