Let me start by saying that I absolutely ADORE my fiances family! We live in RI and they are in FL, so we only see them a few times a year. I invited his mother up here for dress shopping. Since she has two sons I thought she would love doing that with me. She said that she was extremely flattered but would unfortunately not be able to make it (her husband needs close attention so that is most likely why) anyways.. my FI and I are going down to visit them for xmas. His mom asked me if I wanted to go dress shopping down there, but I don't want to try anything on with just her. I want my first time to have my mother and my two best friends. My FI understands, but I do not want to hurt his mothers feelings. Now, I am completely fine with going to LOOK with her, but I really dont want to try a dress on. It is just too special to me. Am I being ridiculous or is this understandable?
Also... if I had already went to try things on previously, I would be FINE with trying more on with his mom. What can I say to her to not make her feel bad? I think going to just look at dresses could still be fun for both of us. That way I can get her opinion on things and try to please her somewhat with my dress purchase.
