Do people take there mother in law's to the choosing of the dress. My mum wants it to just be me and her.
My mother in law can't keep anything secret she will tell everyone and shoe pictures. I will be taking my Mum and Gran.
I would take mine id she wanted to come but its your personal choice x
I'm only takibg my best friend, she knows what I like an she'll give me her honest opinion and I want it to be a surprise for everyone else x
I’m having the same problem but it is our decision at the end of the day and we decide who we want to come dress shopping with us (without sounding too much like bridezilla) 😂xx
I’m taking my future mother in law along to my dress fittings etc. As she has 3 sons so I think it would be nice for her to experience it all. X
Yeah everyone i know did but it up to you i don't think it fare to leave her out tho I'm taking mine
I want my mum there, and I'm also taking my bridal party. It's up to you at the end of the day, but my mother in law can be rude and upsets people so I haven't asked her. If you want both mum's then take both or do two trips. Xx
I had my friend with me to find my dress and took my mum along for the first fitting (she hates shopping) so it was a surprise for everyone else
I took my mother in law to be dress shopping along with my mum and both bridesmaid she has 4 sons so wouldn’t experience the dress shopping side of it x
I took my mum, MIL-to-be and sister who is my maid of honour. It’s personal choice and everyone is different. You do what’s right for you xxx
I for one loved having my mother in law with us,
With my h2b being an only child it was the only time she would get to do it.
The whole experience was magical and she was so grateful
I didnt take either mums with as want the dress the to be a surprise on the day for them. They didn't like it but it's my decision.
Yes I did. I had my Mum, Mother in Law and my Maid of Honour when i went for my dress. I loved it as i got all of their opinions of the dresses i tried on. xx
No. I only wanted my mum there, and she didn't want MiL there because she felt it should be a mother\daughter thing.
I did - but only because I am non-contact with my mother.
I ordered mine from ebay.. so i picked it by myself..
My mother in law hasn’t been to any appointments with me, I don’t want anyone they’re apart from my mum and grandma. Xx
Up to you who you take me personally just taking my mum and nan because that's who I want there x
I took my brother and sister my mum and mother in law don't want to see it till the day xx
Never in a million years ️
No I only took my mum. Only my mum and bridesmaids will see my dress before our big day x
I think it should be just your Mum. A special time for you two.
I took mine. She doesn’t have any daughters so wanted her to have that experience.
Take who you want. I went alone
I just took my mother and my grandma because she was buying it for me, I never took my mother in law to be with us I think it’s a nice surprise for them too when they see you on the day and without being disrespectful to anyone I think it is a mother daughter moment but it’s upto the bride who she takes..
I took my mother, mother in law and my bridesmaids which worked well x
I took my brothers gf with me it was too far for my mil to go and my mum didnt want to come with me xx
Am I the only b2b who's breaking tradition and taking my h2b and maid of honour? 🤔 but seriously honey you take who you want with you x
I invited my mum and mother in law.
I'm close to both so I didn't think twice about inviting them both.
Afterwards My MIL kept texting to say how lovely it was and how much she appreciated the invite, it was great to have them both there x
I'm taking my mum, my sister in law and my mil along. My mil has 2 boys and so this will be the only time she gets to do something like this xx
If my mother in law wasn't with me, I never would of found my dress! She picked it out for me! :) But it's up to you, I wanted lots of different opinions to help me find the dress! :) Good luck!
Personal choice I only took my mum no one else and never told no one till after I bought the dress
I took my mother dress shopping on our own the first time then brought my mother in law as well the second time
I didn’t but I did take in laws to see it when I went back in to order it.
Do what you want to do, if it’s just you and your bridal party then that’s the way it is x
I took my mil she has no daughters so was a great experience
I just took my mam because i don't want anyone else to see it til the day
I took my husband to be! Doesn't help you though. :). It's your choice entirely. x
I invited my MIL but I've known her since I was 14, she's like a second mum to me.
It's all about who you are close with and who you want to be there
Personal choice. I just went with my mum but my bridesmaids and mother in law were invited to a fitting and to see my dress once I'd chosen x
I asked my Mum what she would prefer. Its obviously 'my day' but my Mum being there was a big deal for me. So I asked her if she would mind me inviting my MIL or of she would feel a little pushed out.
In the end I did invite her but she wasn't able to make it
I only took my mum with me. I’m the only girl with 4 brothers. So wanted just a day for me and my mum. Plus I don’t get on with my mother in law so it wouldn’t of been right for her to be there as I know for sure she would of made remarks.
I was going to but not now after all the upset caused recently
I would have loved to as mine only has boys but she lives 300 miles away. I took mum and bridesmaids instead 👍👍
I took my soon to be sis inlaw with me. Her n i have the same tastes in fashion plus she will tell me if it looked horrible on me. So when she went wow to my dress. Knew it was the one :)
its what YOU want that matters, not what your mum wants, nor what anyone else does.
In took mine to the first session but the rest were just me and mum
My mother in law came with me. It was my choice and wanted to have her there and for her to be involved.
As a mum of the bride to be I had no objection as my daughters m in law to be has 4 sons. We all get on so my daughter asked if I would mind. Why should I ? But brides choice :)
I asked my mil to come to the first one with my mum and sister. But after that I didn't ask again cause I only wanted my own mum there as thought it was a special mother/daughter moment. X
I am taking mine with me...she is just as much a part of our day than anyone else x
I took my Mam and my 3 month old son xx
My MIL didn’t come to mine, and I think most will understand that it is a very personal thing for the bride and her family and close friends. However I did let my MIL look at the dress when I brought it home as she looked after it for me so H2B wouldn’t see it
I only had my mum and matron of honour (sis-in-law). I have invited my mother in law to the dress fitting instead
Mum & daughter only x
I just went with my mum and dad xx
I had my mum, my mother in law, my cousin, my two second cousins (ages 3 and 6 at the time), my auntie, one of my bridesmaids, and my 90 year old gran. Take whoever you want
I did but in all honesty it wasnt a big wow moment for me. I was picking a dress. I think especially if like my MIL they have no daughters its a very nice bonding experience
I took my MIL. She only has boys and I wanted to include her in this special moment. It was also a nice opportunity for her and my mum to spend some time together :)
My mother in law saw me when i walked down the aisle.... i took my best friend with me... then my Mam and one of my sisters x
I had my mum, mother in law & bridesmaids all wanting to get involved with the dress choosing.
So the first time it was was just mum & me... then i took mum & the mother in law
Next booking will be adding the bridesmaids so they all get a look in & a say & everyone is happy
I had my mum and my nan and grandad with me
It’s completely up to you and how you feel I’m taking my mum and his mum and my bridesmaids
It's your choice and no one can make you feel bad about what you choose. If your mother in law would like to come, why not? If she isn't bothered either way then don't take her. X
I tried dresses on yesterday... took 2 friends and my partners aunt (my MOH) I found 'the dress' before I purchase I shall be taking the MIL to see it
I didn't. She didn't expect to be invited and she also lives across the country from us. I have shown her a photo though.
