Just need reassurance...
My FMIL has been amazing through my entire relationship with FI, who is her oldest son. She knows my personality is not prissy, but can't help herself with offering spa days, mani-pedis, facials, etc... I did get a "makeover" for my 25th birthday, and went for a girls' day out for mani-pedis with FMIL and FSIL. I enjoyed spending time with them; however, the activities are just not my style. I'm a wash-n-wear, throw on some mascara, jeans and a tee, hair in a ponytail and out the door kinda girl, who's idea of a fun day is go-karts, drag strip, or shooting range, and the occasional lazy day at the beach. Recently, FMIL celebrated her anniversary at the beach and spent almost the entire time riding around checking out possible rehearsal dinner spots, hotels for guests, etc. I appreciate all she and FFIL do, but I had to fuss at them that it was THEIR time, they should be enjoying each other, not worrying about FI and I. They brought home some wonderful information for us to look over, and she had pointed out one of the local salon's menus for bridal services. It would be a whole morning event, with brunch/champagne and pampering for myself, bridal party and her. I hadn't really given any thought to anything other than hair and pro make-up so my skin is nice and even in the pictures, and FI has been telling me to "just go with it, she enjoys doing this kinda thing." I guess I'm strange, I just can't wrap my head around an entire morning spent with multiple "attendants" fussing over me and my bridal party. I have plenty of time to mull it over, and I'm thinking it will be a nice way to relax before the day really kicks off.... I just feel awkward having people do things for me...does that make sense?
