    We had fun! The bridesmaids dresses have been chosen and ordered. And they only cost $106 each and mine also!

    difficult children future mother in law is a nice woman for the most part but she's kind of a phony nice and judgmental, which kind of put a damper on things but I didn't let it kill my fun! The flower girl was adorable but we didn't find a dress for her. Some were nice but nothing was 'it'. difficult child and she will go dress shopping at the mall another time.

    Anyway, it was a nice time! Then PCM, difficult child, niece and I went out for drinks and lunch.

    The red is what the bridesmaid will wear (cousin) and the pink is what easy child will wear. We are trying to find a fun dress for the flower girl, maybe pink polka dots.

    I don't know what difficult children mother in law is wearing. She wants to wear red, which is the same as the bridesmaids. Ugh

    Of course, you have no input but...
    Maybe mother in law could wear a two-tone outfit - with the red matching the bridesmaids but some other color with it (white, black, navy, green... there's lots that goes with red!) It wouldn't be so "bold" as all-red... but who knows, red might be mother in law's "thing", you know?

    The dress is beautiful! It is awesome that you aren't letting difficult child's future mother in law ruin your fun as this is a time and occasion we parents don't get many of.

    If she wants/needs ideas or inspirations, there seem to be a TON of pages of wedding stuff, esp DIY/cheap but classy ideas on pinterest.

    Red is actually my favorite color, followed by purple (eggplant-purpley)...

    I really don't care what she wears, honestly. I just want everyone to be happy and comfortable in whatever they choose! I was so impressed with difficult child the other day. Her cousin came in and asked, "So, what are the rules, what do we have to wear?" and difficult child smiled and said, "You choose the dress you want, just make sure it't in this color. I don't want you to buy a dress you hate!" and everyone sighed in relief. Hahaha.
