So we are now 23 days away from the wedding. My FMIL will be arriving in 21 days. She has yet to purchase a dress. She wants to get one made. She has plenty of time according to her. This is what she just texted me with the caption...is this too bright? The yellow one is the one she wants.

What do you think WW?

    WOW!!! Tell her that's not the yellow you had in mind. That's a neon yellow!

    That's really kind of bright :/. I'm nervous for what my FMIL is going to pick out for herself too! But anyway, a pale yellow could work, I think.

    @labake, I know..really can't believe her....

    @andrea, yes, she says her lady can do one in two to three days..So I'm sure it will be high quality work.

    @emily...I wouldn't even want a SIL to wear that..

    @soon2, exactly!!! If you have to ask me if it's too bright..um, yeah it may be.

    @ stephanie, yes a pale yellow is what I originally thought she was going with...until this picture. At this point I don't care, she just won't be in a lot of the pictures if she glows in the dark.

    Too bright, she's trying to steal the show! You make me want to add "no neon colors" to my dress code....

    Ha I guess we all have our own FMIL issues, mine wanted to buy a dress that cost 3 times what mine did... hello I am the bride!!

    Yes Marie, I'm a troll. You figured me out. I also have multiple personalities on here, see if you can figure that one out.

    Yes, my mother wanted to wear the least amount of clothes as possible. FH's mom obviously wants to glow in the dark.

    Well that certainly is bright. Yeah neon is back but the wedding isn't a time to show off your favorite 80's trends LOL.

    Really??? Has she lost her mind??? I feel your pain. I have one just like that. Thought she was the bride and wanted to be center stage on my big day.

    She has definitely lost it. I have told her three different times that she didn't have to match the colors (red and yellow)....I have also suggested complimentary colors like champagne, etc. She is a strange one.

    Ouch. I'm blind!

    Are you sure she wasn't joking?

    I hope she has major sewing skills... Or can bribe someone to make her one in less then a week. And that is a veeery bright yellow. If she has sewing skills and the patience to purchase the pattern, fabric, sewing notions, and can make it in that amount of time? More power to her.

    Now I'm happy that my mother agreed to not dress up and won't wear a skirt. Which is fine with me... Not sure about my FMIL but she looks nice in a dress.

    Oh FMC I feel your pain!!

    Picture a voluptuous FMIL with a boooooty telling me she wants a "Pippa dress" for the wedding...I can't even pull off a Pippa dress...not mention she is in her upper 60s' no 20s'....

    Is your FMIL receptive if you send her images of what is the color palette you were hoping for...including the yellow she wants eventhough you dont necessarily want it...??

    Yikes

    FMC - I would just let her ear that color so she can look like an idiot. Serves her right.
