I apologize for the long post but please bear with me... I have 2 issues I need advice on.
1. My FMIL is Gujarati and I'm not too sure if this is cultural or if she just doesn't really like me. FI & I took both American themed engagement pics & Indian themed engagement pics. When I showed them to her she went through and said either "I like this one" or "This one is NOT good" (emphasis on the not). Maybe she was just being honest?
2. Now we are looking for wedding saris and she is a much simpler woman than I am. She told me to get a sari that I can wear again, but in American culture we NEVER wear our wedding dress again... so I'd assume that the sari should be equally nice. Right? For example, I found this sari I like:
she suggested this one:
Now don't get me wrong, I like hers but it just doesn't seem very "wedding" to me.
A little background: her sister's daughter got marred a few months ago and had a henna artist for her mhendi party but my FMIL suggested that we "do each other's henna" to save money.... I KNOW that is tacky... so is this sari thing another tacky FMIL moment?
Any advice on how to handle this would be greatly appreciated.
