When I went to buy my wedding dress last year just me and my mum went as I wanted the experience of just me and her and I didn't really know my H2B's family very well yet at the point. I am going for my first fitting at the end of this month and really debating wether to invite H2B's step mum to the fitting to make her more included as my partner is hopeless and hasn't really spoke a lot about the wedding to his family...

Its absolutely up to you, maybe check that your own mum doesn't mind & take it from there? But if your gut instinct is to invite her, then go for it. This weekend we're all going to a wedding fair, to give our mums a chance to catch up & talk wedding!

Hi I would just take my Mum and keep the dress as a surprise :)

I think it would be a lovely gesture to invite your partner's mum. Make her feel included and special and give your mum to get to know her too. Just run it past your mum first and see how she feels. Enjoy your fitting!

My mum sisters and his mum came dress shopping, my mum and my two girls came to the fitting . I wanted her to feel included but I'm over that as she's just caused a lot of aggravation recently about the wedding wanting everything her way
